Thanks for stopping by.
Friday’s blog a private peek, so let’s go back to last weekend.
Dave and I decided to take ourselves off to the city of London.
We live right next door, yet we so seldom soak it up.
So Dave booked the train tickets,
which I have to say seemed very reasonable,
and off we went!
First stop the wonderful V&A.
You could spend a month in there,
and only scratch the surface of the treasures in that building.
But do you ever get the feeling you’re being followed?
I just had this sense that wherever we went,
there was always somebody hot on our heels,
checking us out, watching our every movement...
But who were they??
Could they be from the DVLA?
Or the HMRC?
Even when we went to see Maureen Lipman in
Daytona at the Theatre Royal in the afternoon,
there they were!
I must tell you, Maureen Lipman was superb.
In fact, the whole production was superb.
I was so excited to meet her, I cried.
This is Oliver Cotton.
He wrote the play, and starred.
Behind Harry Shearer!!
Well we walked and wandered for miles,
Dave and I ....
but were we alone?
Seriously though folks, we had the time of our lives.
Met up with our good friends Debby and Gill, and packed it in.
The V&A, the Theatre, Dinner at the Criterion,
and finally, on Sunday morning, Matisse at the Tate Modern.
To be able to have such a cultural and interesting weekend
was a rare treat.
We sure kicked ass in London!
