This and That Thursday

Hello!

I hope everyone has had a good week so far.

Here is what my week has entailed.

Zoom Quiz

We took part in our first Zoom quiz on Saturday and it was great fun. It was so good to have some social fun, even if it was online. Our team came 7th out of 9. The rounds consisted of:-

  1. General Knowledge
  2. Abba
  3. Cheese
  4. Famous People
  5. Shakespeare Plays
  6. Space
  7. Dogs
  8. Royal Family
  9. Music
  10. Sitcoms

Our best round was Abba. I thought I would share the Shakespeare questions with you all and see what you all think. They are all cryptic clues to different plays.

  1. Farce of mistakes
  2. Everything’s satisfactory which terminates satisfactory
  3. Honourable duo from a city of love
  4. Greek statesman, sovereign of a Phoenician city
  5. The subjugation of the fishwife
  6. The trader of Veneto’s capital
  7. The sequel to “The Life and Death of King Richard 2nd”
  8. The convivial consorts of Maidenhead’s neighbour
  9. Priam’s son and Calchas’s daughter
  10. Pumbaa’s friend from the capitol of Greece

Piano

I have been getting into my piano playing and I am thoroughly enjoying the new challenge of the pieces. I am hoping I get good enough to do the grade 6 exam this year.

Exercise

I have finally got back into my exercise and I must admit after a big kettlebell workout on Tuesday I am still aching. I have also started watching the series The Expanse from the beginning whilst using my exercise bike.

TV series

We have almost finished the first series of 24 and I must admit I am thoroughly enjoying the show and I think it is really cleverly done.

So there is my week. I hope you enjoy the Shakespeare questions.

Happy Reading

This and That Thursday

Hello!

Another busy week has gone by with teaching, studying and throwing things away.

Yes I have had a big clear out of my music room and changed the position of my online teaching setup and I love it. The room is so much calmer now it is all organised. I am aiming to do every room before Christmas so the bedroom and music room are now done, so kitchen and dinning room are next.

Here is my lovely music room

Exercise

I have been after an exercise bike for ages and I now have one and so after a busy day I have been chilling out with a session on the bike whilst watching an episode of Criminal Minds.

Walking

We are still walking and have recently discovered a lovely walk which is really close to where we live and I loved it. Lyra has been helping us choose some new walks to try as well.

Piano Playing

I have started practicing Christmas music on the piano. Each year I try to learn new Christmas pieces on the piano and so hopefully I will be able to play some new tunes at Christmas. So far there has been some terrible Christmas tunes in this house.

So there is my week. I hope everyone is having a good week so far.

Happy Reading.
