And I have to say I'm quite proud of myself.
I've taken part in the NaBloPoMo (national blog posting month) challenge for each the last four years. The idea is to write a blog every day during November - more difficult than it sounds, but good discipline, and something I ought to do more.
I almost never pre-plan what I write; this year I wasn't even sure if I was taking part until half way through... And so it's been a rambling sort of NaBloPoMo - but I've enjoyed it all the more for that. I'm aware there's been a lot of philosophy and politics - apologies, if I've gone on a bit; I guess that's because I've been clearing my mind. Then there was also scotch eggs...
But actually, I did it, and I'm quite proud of myself for another reason.
At the start of November I promised my friend and fellow blogger Michelle that if I completed the challenge I'd post a video of me playing the saxophone.
Well, last night, despite the head cold and very limited talent, I made my first ever public appearance playing an instrument. Here's me and some fellow students, blowing our rendition of Feeling Good.
