Dancing time! On Friday we went to a party, it was my cousin’s daughter’s son’s 16th birthday. That’s my first cousin twice removed to be precise. The kid’s were glued to their mobile phones for a lot of the evening, but we do have a ‘turn off’ time which happens even if not at home. Luckily, turn off time happened just as the DJ started to play party dances and the kids couldn’t resist a bit of Cha Cha Slide!
The Red Shoes
Then on Saturday it was ballet time. My friend and I had been looking forward to Mathew Bourne’s ‘The Red Shoes’ for a long time. It was a fabulous show, although maybe a little more true to the story than his previous performances that we’d seen. Cinderella was set in World War II and Romeo + Juliet in an Asylum for young people. I will write more about The Red Shoes in another post but it is based on the film of the same name which was inspired by the Hans Christian Anderson Story. It’s quite a dark story based on vanity.
I think I’ve had enough now with a party and a ballet two nights in a row and Storm Dennis keeping me awake. The rest of the weekend needs to be spent resting.
What have you been up to this week? What are your plan for today? I wish I could just sit on the settee cuddled up in my blankets all day. I think I will for most of the day, but I guess there will still be jobs to do. Thankfully, its half term this week so I won’t need to worry about getting all the uniforms ready for tomorrow. Yay! for small mercies.
We don’t really have many plans for the half term holiday, but once I have recovered from this weekend I’m sure we will think of something to do. Maybe if the weather settles a little we may even go and get some fresh air.
