... been reading I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith.
I really can't recommend this charming book too highly. It came to me with glowing reviews from Lara and Brenda Dayne and it didn't disappoint. If you've already read I Capture the Castle you might also like The Lost Art of Keeping Secrets which has a very similar feel to it.
... been watching Man on Wire on BBC2. This is a beautifully, quirky documentary about Phillippe Petit's compulsion to walk on a wire stretched between the two towers of the World Trade Centre. The story of how he and his team broke in there and the wire walk itself is funny and fascinating and the whole thing is only made more poignant by the fact that the buildings that he danced between are no longer standing. It's still available to view on BBC iPlayer.
... been listening to the BBC Proms, in particular A Celebration of Classic MGM Film Musicals which featured, amongst other artists, the multi-talented Seth McFarlane. I mean, I knew the guy could sing, but boy can he sing. This is also still available to watch or listen to on iPlayer.
