Paul and I had a quiet Christmas in London where we didn’t leave the house all day and we ate a LOT of food. Paul gave me two wonderful books: Hypatia of Alexandria by Michael A B Deakin and The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins. They will help very nicely with my new year resolution to read more nonfiction!
Yesterday we went to the Westfield shopping centre at Shepherds Bush where there was lots of mad consumerism going on with the post-Christmas sales. We both bought shoes at the Terra Plana store as they were having a sale and Paul and I are big fans of their shoes. I bought some cool boots and some cool slip on shoes. Paul bought some nice blue shoes.
Today we are going to see the film Waltz with Bashir, an animated documentary about an Israeli soldier’s memories of his time fighting Lebanon in the 1980s. I’m really looking forward to it.
I have been watching a lot of television in the last few days – it’s nice to be on holidays. I have also been to the gym three times in the last five days! It would be very good to keep that up. We’ll see how I go. Paul and I are still on holidays for another week. I’m loving it. I have a lot planned.
