Sunshine , Pink Tea and Runny Cheese
Now that I have a day to myself each week , the world's grown a bit and I can go to Groningen again for a couple of hours .
Just long enough to wander past the museum and through the town enjoying the sun , finding odd corners and playing the 'what would it be like to live in this street ' game
Rummaging for second hand CDs in the recycling shop to play at least once ... the soundtrack from a French film about Seville
and Verdi's Il Trovatore with Leontyne Price this time , both to be played again .
A 'Seventies relic which I bore off in triumph , much to the surprise of the junk shop's owner ... "It doesn't go any more " he warned . Good , these always had a deafening tic and only a masochist would repair it but I couldn't resist it for a Euro , could I ?
Treating myself to a quarter of exceedingly fruity Apple and Hibiscus tea and a cheerful Father Christmas tin to keep it in , lest the whole flat smells of it .
Buying good bread , runny cheese and tiny sweet tomatoes for supper and running to the train clutching a ham baguette . Putting my feet up in the evening with that morning's paper and a cup of gorgeously pink hibiscus tea .
Nothing earth-shattering ... just fun .
