Front-row comedy, games and coastal meandering
Hello friends and followers,
The past week flew by and here I am late on Sunday trying to finish off my third week note without fail.
The week began with an unplanned visit to the Soho Theatre. I was immensely pleased to snap up one of the re-released tickets for the sold out Mulberry with Tim Key. I can fully endorse The Times' recommendation that this is:
"The greatest stand-up response to Lockdown so far"
Also, surprisingly I was blessed with a front-row seat which inevitably put me in the frontline for some audience participation! I was the perfect choice for Mulberry's storyline, being stuffed up the in Lockdown One as a lone male in a confined space. Tim Key did not disappoint, and I even got a free beer out of it!
The technology-focused meetup for Tonbridge I originally started almost seven years ago is still going strong! Thanks to the efforts of James Singleton, who's been keeping it a regular fixture in the calendar with a mixture of pub socials and board games nights at Planet JJs.
TV and streaming
Viewing included catching up with the latest series of Masterchef, Have I Got News for You, and the latest video from Daily Bald exploring Soviet treasures in Georgia. I also finally got round to watching BAFTA award-winning After Love. By far one of my favourite films of recent years!
On Saturday my parent came to visit to help with some pre-sale work on the flat. We also fitted in some relaxation time for a visit to Hastings and enjoyed a delicious meze-based lunch at Isabella in Hastings Old Town along with especially strong Turkish coffee. Top tip for cost-free parking in Hastings on a dry day: pick yourself a quiet, unrestricted road just off Brisco's Walk and stroll into town from there, less than a mile away.
Until next week folks, stay safe and look after yourselves!
