What a Wonderful Week!
I'm having a blast of a week! (with the exception of having to go to work yesterday, as I couldn't get time off :-( )
Birthday celebrations orchestrated (yes, that's exactly the right word, I think!)by my family included a trip to London for a double-header theatre session: matinee of Phantom of the Opera, followed by an evening performance of the sequel, Love Never Dies!
I've seen Phantom a few times and this was as good as ever, but LND was absolutely breathtaking
We also took time between shows to have a meal at Little Frankie's by Trafalgar Sq., then wandered over to see the latest installation on the spare plinth - see pic. Nelson can still say "I see no ships", as he has his back to the fourth plinth! ;-p
Today is a shopping adventure in IKEA to get things for daughter's new house, then a family meal tonight with OH and BOTH offspring, when the son and heir joins us after work.
And although I did have to go to work yesterday, I treated myself to two new books (well, I don't have very many..... ;-p) - Peter James' 'Not Dead Enough' and 'Dead Man's Footsteps' :-)
......and tomorrow, we begin the decorating.
