proper half term treat and garden update

June 13, 2012 at 9:42 pm 2 comments

Last week my son and I took the train to London (a rare event in itself), met my other son in Victoria and dined at Wagamamma’s. In the afternoon we went to see Billy Elliot at the Victoria Palace. I hadn’t seen it on stage for about 6 years and thoroughly enjoyed revisiting it, as did my 15 year old son. The energy and and agility of the lad who plays the lead is astounding – no wonder they rotate the cast! Even sweeter the deal through!

By the way the garden is lush and jungle like – due to so much rain – the beans have climbed to the top of the tripods, the potato plants are verdant bushes, the sweet peas are strong and thickening up, the beetroot seedlings are up (note to self; must thin them this weekend) the carrots are struggling, tomato plants strong and healthy. Have eaten about 10 big fat ripe strawberries already – they are delicious when eaten warm, straight off the plant….mmmmm. More sunshine please!

    Debi, your garden sounds delicious!

    Would you recommend Billy Elliott for younger kids? I’d love to see it on stage, but seem to remember a bit of ‘language’! My kids are 11 and 9….

      P its a fantastic show but the language is very colourful and can’t imagine you would feel comfortable taking your two just yet….give it a couple more years xx
