Happy thoughts – Sunday 5th February

  • I really enjoyed my run this morning. Went out intending to do about 7k, but was enjoying it so much I made it 10 – completed in about 55 minutes, which isn’t bad for London where you’re constantly being stopped by traffic lights and dodging slow moving tourists (who somehow manage to take up the whole pavement even if there are only 2 of them)
  • With me having completed my 10k, and Will having gone to the gym, we decided to have a very lazy afternoon, so we only ventured out to the shops to get groceries and I made a lamb and spinach curry, which was bloomin’ delicious. Extra shout out for the luxury M&S hot cross buns that were reduced to clear – best 20p I’ve spent in a while!
  • The other component of our lazy day was films. We watched Fantastic Mr Fox (Wes Anderson was a very appropriate director to tackle Roald Dahl), Miles Ahead (a thoroughly enjoyable caper, though worth remembering it’s fictionalised as otherwise it would take the shine off Miles Davis for me), and Ex Machina. Ex Machina was the star of our line-up, so an appropriate finale to the evening – it was critically acclaimed, but didn’t do amazingly at the box office, but it’s a little gem of a film. I’m picky about my sci-fi, but this was intelligently written – more a psychological thriller than traditional sci-fi. I feel like I’ve got some film-related blog posts in me as I watch so many of them, so look out for those coming soon…
