Reading, music and recovery

Lorraine not well. And, not to be outdone, I felt far from being top form too, so we had a day of reading and listening to music, which I really enjoyed.

I started The Story of Music by Howard Goodall, which is a great romp through music, spraying lots of names I'd not heard of in its first couple of chapters. Armed with Spotify of course, you can simply listen to them right away and discovered the sung music of Guillaume Dufay and Josquin de Prez, and am rather pleased I did.

Administering to my wife with paracetamol and slipping out to score chicken and ham pie and chocolate, an essential part of the recovery process. Even without nasty bug, Lorraine I think needed a complete day of rest.
