We went to lunch with some friends and walked along the seafront in this evil weather. Found this guy playing Saxophone and he was brilliant. I think I need a better mic though.
Charlotte said I should post this but I didn't want to
Death and the Penguin
I don't normally take pictures of food, but I do like to look at pictures of food. This week I've been trying to take some, and that has fortunately coincided with eating like I'm running out of time. Featuring Curry Leaf Café, Bhindi's and Gail's Bakery in Hove.
I really need to eat better this week. I mean, more healthily.
Tabitha is growing up so fast. When I look back on old videos of her, I barely recognise her. To spend time with her is becoming more and more like spending time with a peer, with the odd exception. It's definitely my favourite part of parenting so far.
That being said, this evening she did something so adorably childlike that I had to make a note of it somewhere that has some persistence so that I can one day revisit it or be reminded of it.
After dinner this evening, Tabitha wanted a little extra, and there were some leftovers. Charlotte asked her to bring a bit of tissue from the table and throw it in the bin. On her way to the bin, Charlotte swapped the tissue for the leftovers, and Tabitha carried on, on autopilot, and threw her food in the bin.
She turned around slowly to us and said "I've just done something really silly. I threw my food in the bin" and was very upset about it. After a lot of giggling (this is exactly the sort of thing Charlotte and I do on a regular basis), and consolation, Tabitha was fine and we were all having a laugh about it.
It was so sweet and sad the way she realised what she'd done, I want to replay that moment again and again.
To save you from all the preamble, you can read about why I'm a year late to this on The Music of 2015. This is still as relevant as ever, and I'm still as self-indulgent as ever. But if you're here, you probably don't mind that anyway. With that in mind, here's the music I've heard of from 2016 that I still listen to and love. Obviously there's more than this, but this is the good stuff.
Listen to: The Reverie II (listen to all of it though. It's really good)
Listen to: Pia Mater
Listen to: Deception
Listen to: Behold the Swine (but listen to the whole thing)
Listen to: Lotta Years
Listen to: Billy No Mates (but seriously. Whole thing)
Listen to: Anything Chemical
Listen to: Tiger Hologram
Listen to: Crawling Through Nothing to Nothing
Listen to: Nonagon (but the whole thing is a riot)
