Blog Number 37: Do something cultural once a month

August – An interesting article was written in the Telegraph entitled ‘Top 50 tell-tale signs of aging revealed’. Here’s the link –

50 tell-tale signs of aging

I can’t quite believe it but I did number 48 in August. I won’t let slip how many others I can say ‘yes’ to. It’s depressing!

September – I had never eaten tasted sushi let alone made it so this class was a complete step into the unknown. At the end of two entertaining hours, I could not only make it but I could eat it with chopsticks! Details of the classes can be found at http://makikosano.co.uk and are great fun.

A special thank you to my friend Maria who treated me for my (never-ending) birthday.

October – I attended a beautiful candlelit Vivaldi Concert in St Martins in the Fields. The setting was beautiful and the music stunning but I was a little put off by the lady next to me who kept asking where Frankie Valli was… 😉

November – I’ve forgotten what I did. Er, isn’t that number 23 in the Telegraph article?

December – I remember visiting Kew a Gardens when it was a penny to get in. Although inflation seems to have hit it big time (by my calculations – 135,000 per cent in less than 40 years), today’s entrance fee is worth every penny! I visited the Christmas market and walked the mile-long illuminated trail, drank mulled wine and ate mince pies. A truly lovely start to the Christmas festivities. A huge thank you to my friend Ewa who arranged this.

(By the way, a little Christmas brain teaser – what is the current entrance fee?)
