So, it seems that I’ve been writing this blog for a year now. It’s been quite an eventful year – I went to 5 cinema broadcasts, met Joyce DiDonato and went to two live performances, one of which was my first visit to the Royal Opera House. My blog tells me that there are 412 of you following me by email. I’m having trouble believing that, but I have even more followers on Twitter and I’m pretty pleased with that. So thank you all for reading this and I’m sorry I’m not the most reliable of bloggers ( I know, I still haven’t made a post about Don Carlos but it will happen, I promise).
