    Itchy And Scratchy And Mungo Jerry

    Morning lovelies…my current new name is.’itchy and scratchy’ which conjures up rather unpleasant visions, but sadly it is my permanent body state at the moment, which is not nice for me or anyone else!

    West End Heroes & Cafetiere Overkill

    Morning…so far I have had a fight between the hoover and a pair of headphones. Unfortunately the hoover won, I spent 5 minutes unwinding husband’s headphones from the roller and sadly they haven’t survived…lesson to learn ‘don’t leave them lying on the floor!’ I have broken the news to him and his initial panic was …

    From Poppyseed To Pumpkin

    Morning…Husband survived his performance of Tea With The Old Queen and is much relieved his voice held out. He had a few technical problems with an un-cooperating laptop, was sweating buckets, feeling ill, but the show must go on and from audience feedback he hid his ailments well and they all seemed to enjoy it. I am having that Monday morning …

    An Evening of Morris Dancing!

    Morning lovelies…last night my husband was unwell and was nursing himself in preparation for his one man sell out West End performance of Tea With The Old Queen at the Jermyn Street Theatre…a studio theatre which only holds a small number of people, but still brilliant to sell out! He plays Backstairs Billy, the camp butler of …
