April snow

April snow, originally uploaded by kate1976.

We had snow on Saturday night which is most unusual for April. It had all gone by 4pm Sunday but it was really purty in the meantime.


London, baby!

On Friday, I went up to the Big Smoke to see my friend Zoë. We had tickets for The Sound of Music which was excellent. I have a question though. Why is it acceptable to get up for the loo 5 minutes before the interval? Is that not what the interval is for? I think it is so rude to disturb the rest of the audience and the poor performers on stage just because you don’t want to queue for the loo or the bar. It irritates me enough when it happens at a football match but at least the footballers can’t hear people getting restless. And why would you take a four year old to see a West End show?  I spend £45 on my ticket so do not really want to have to listen to a grizzly kid half way through.  AND if your obnoxious ten year old boys start making retching noises during the romantic bits, DO SOMETHING.  For effs sake!  Anyway, that aside, the show was fab. London was fab. It was nice to visit but I was glad to come home again. How on earth did I manage that everyday for 2 years?

Plus, if you visit London, go and stay near Sloane Square – it’s lovely.  I have been to London a lot but never to that area and I really liked it.  Good shops, lovely old buildings and still not too far away from the centre.  This was the view from the flat where we stayed the night (it’s great having friends with money).

And if you go to Yo Sushi, try not to eat 6 dishes.  You will regret it.  Although it was lovely just to chill out and catch up with Zoe and another friend from where I used to work, Kirsty.  Boy, I miss those lovely ladies.

I was going to post about Jimmy Kimmel and Ben Affleck but Very Contrary and Charlie (and probably a million other bloggers) beat be to it.  Instead, how about Star Wars according to a 3 year old.

Went inside a giant golf ball, other cool stuff happened

I will soon get back to blogging regularly I hope but in the meantime, enjoy this picture of Epcot’s giant ball thing which I took with my phone whilst waiting for the new Spaceship Earth ride (voiced by the delicious Dame Judi Dench).


Also I have come back from holiday hating my new blog look and wondering if I can be bothered to blog anymore at all.  I think I just need to remember why it is I blog.  So expect some more tinkering with the theme / header and some blogsoul-searching.  Just as soon as I finish this damned essay (yes, another one is due.  Gah.).
