February was crazy busy, still recovering I think, hence my tardy post!
January ended so brilliantly seeing Neil Gaiman, I rested on the first day of February.
I caught up with more Oscar Films, Still Alice, Foxcatcher, Finding Vivian Maier, Into The Woods, The Theory of Everything, and then of course, the big day itself. You can read all about my predictions, the event, and the fashion.
I had a lovely afternoon in Newcastle wandering around The Mall, up to Scotties for lunch and back via the sadly abandoned rail line.
Work has been insanely busy with the lead up to recruitment, staff on leave and sick, having new storage being built, and the commencement of all our new programming.
I finally caught up with D, and we had a lovely lunch at Merewether Surf Club. It was my first visit and I will be back...for the views and the Peking Duck Pancakes.
I volunteered at The Regal and The Hospital.
C & I trekked to Maitland Art Gallery to see The Archibalds and their regular exhibitions, both of which were impressive. We then headed to Morpeth, for a wander and lunch at the Pancake and Crepe place. Then the afternoon at my sisters.
I caught up with my beautiful friend A for lunch at Lambton.
L & I visited Newcastle Art Gallery for a talk about Feminism in Photography which coincided with a great exhibition, then we headed to our first Bibliotweeps bookclub of the year where we discussed The Secret River.
My beautiful friend J brought me this present for Book Giving Day, she made me cry at her generosity.
The month ended in style with my gals, A, J & L, and a Scotties picnic and drinkies prior to Carriage Shed Cinema where we saw the wonderful and provocative Venus in Fur.
How Bridge Over Troubled Water became my go to song.
How I've heard three different versions of Hallelujah live.
My love for The Sound of Music
