Refining my tastes

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!

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…

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.

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
