Reading Week Saw Less Reading than Planned

Okay, actually, I probably got most of what I had planned to do this week done and that which is still to do will most likely be completed on the plane home. I'm writing this at quite the pace while waiting to board so please do excuse any typos and general nonsense. So, if you [...]


Pre-Birthday Trip to Dutch-land

Just because I've moved away from The Netherlands doesn't mean that you lot have managed to get rid of me yet! When I heard that Cesair was going to be playing a concert with Irfan, and my having missed the latter on their trip to the UK and thus not having seen them in too [...]

I'm going to be completely honest and say that I have been looking forward to this so much. It's been way too long since my last show and, indeed since the last time I was anywhere with live music (excluding musical theatre...Castlefest, maybe?). I'm also going to be honest and say that this was written [...]
