The Cathedral website publish what the concerts are and my friend M and I try to go to one or two a month. Today's concert was an excellent folk duo, one British and one Swedish. Their style blends traditional and historical material with contemporary sounds. Their instruments are Swedish nyckelharpas, flute, Scottish smallpipes, Swedish bagpipes, English border pipes, guitar, accordion, cowhorn, harpischord and piano. Occasionally, if I've done a bit of shopping beforehand I close my eyes and just drift away with the music, but not today, I didn't want to miss a second, it was beautiful, and there was some audience participation needed. Sandwiches, cakes, tea and coffee are available or people can take their own.
I didn't do much shopping today, just some milk, cereal and Asti Spumante, oh and chocolate! Hotel Chocolat still have their post Christmas sale on, a few items are less than half price so it would be silly not to :-)
Back home now and I have just enjoyed my favourite M&S chocolate and hazlenut tart with a cup of tea. No cooking tonight. My daughter and son-in-law are away for the weekend, so I'm in charge of my grandson. Aged 14 and 6' 1" I can hardly say I'm babysitting, more like supervising! We usually have fish n chip Friday (he has 2 jumbo sausages and chips), and McDonald's Saturday. I know I spoil him, but that's what nans do, and it gives me an excuse to have fast food now and again!
