Restaurant: Palatino in Clerkenwell, an Italian place specialising in Roman food and a regular haunt. The maître d’ knew it was farewell and brought out the prosecco. A very sad night.

Gig: Marika Hackman at the Riverside in Newcastle. End of February. She was good. I had a ticket to see Martha that I think was in the first week of March, but it got cancelled about two hours before doors cos everything was starting to spiral then.

Cinema Trip: Misbehaviour, the last night Cineworld was open. Was already wfh-ing then, decided to try and have a normal evening while I still could, so snuck away at half four to go for a beer and to that. It was alright 7/10 sorta thing.

Football Match: Never

Restaurant: Don’t really do restaurants. We did a Pizza Hut buffet on a random weekday off work back in early February. Ate so much, felt so ill afterwards.

Even as someone with no real social life, I too miss stuff.

It would be funny if a film came out about the magician around the same time as the other one, no? Just 90 minutes of the Eiffel tower disappearing etc
