On Friday evening I went to see Jerusalem at the WYP with Lance, while Mary looked after the children (babysat is no longer the right word). Judy and Keith, to whom I had given the tickets, had discovered that they couldn’t go after all, so after looking for anyone else who was free, I went.
It was a very good play, seven actors who all played instruments and sang. They burst into modern pop tunes at various points to fit into the story. The put upon son sang a Smiths song and the granny sang a very drunken, aggressive version of Take Me Out. I’m glad I’ve been back to the WYP before we go to see Alice in Wonderland in the new year.
On Saturday Rose went to a birthday party, and then to a sleep-over. Toby and I went to see Hamlet at the Theatre Royal with Lance and Mary, and John was looked after by Jean. Hamlet seemed really dull, so Toby and I left at half time!
On Sunday, John had a gym competition, in which he won silver for his floor. He’d made up the routine himself and it was brilliant. Rose was at the dance festival with school and did a really good dance to Chattanooga Choo Choo. Then we went out to La Piazza, followed by Harry Potter at the City Screen.
Very busy weekend.
