As I am getting older I am starting to enjoy different things, I had a biscuit barrel off my mum from her holiday and I have never been so pleased! Who would have thought a storage tin would have been the highlight of that particular day, I have never been that worried about household accessories but times are a changing! I am also shifting my entertainment preferences, back when I was a student my favourite pastime was drinking at the bar, followed by drinking in the club!
Now I look forward to a decent meal in a restaurant, a trip to the theatre or a country walk. So I thought there are a few things I have not tried, hot chocolate I still cannot tolerate sadly or coffee (what with all the fabulous flavours you can get with posh names like Pumpkin Spice Latte!), wine I now drink but very diluted with lemonade. I do not like pate or the thought of caviar turns my tummy! I tried venison once it was so meaty I just ate my vegetables…
So I think I should work on my choice of entertainment instead, seeing as I do not have the stomach for the finer foods. I have considered following Opera, it’s one thing I have yet to try. Hopefully it will enrich my appreciation of drama through music and sing song. I am not sure I will be able to follow the plots but at least if anyone asks I can confirm I have indeed developed an interest of sorts in classical music.
I might be an opera novice but I still know my Rigoletto from Risotto. If you do not then the first is an opera by by Giuseppe Verdi the second quite a delicious Italian dish! But I will keep developing my interest; if it’s not for me then at least I gave it a try. At the very least the English National Opera is a lavish venue and worth a visit for that reason alone.
