A day of play today. Following on from the annual January Playing Day and to celebrate Abingdon Concert Bandâs 30th Anniversary we all met again with two conductors in some unbelievably swish private prep school just outside Abingdon for a day of play. With six flutes amongst us, I spent most of the time playing piccolo, which was good fun. Weirdly playing picc improves my playing as you canât play picc unconfidentlyâ¦ 😉
From the playing day, I headed into Oxford, and more specifically Jericho to meet up with Jane and Melissa for more play – or rather, The Play. Having revised Between Floors the ending is still not quite working, but we think we know what we have to do now.
Got home a bit after 8pm, and was able to water the garden and pod some peas and beans to go with my steak supper. Delicious! Oh, and what a freakily, scary episode of Doctor Who it was – really, proper scary! If Iâm honest, then Iâve never actually been scared by the programme before; never had that behind-the-sofa moment, but tonightâs really got me. Donât blink. Whatever you do, just donât blinkâ¦
