Theatre Trip


My sister and I went to the theatre tonight to see a reboot of the 1985 Charlotte Keatley play My Mother Said I Never Should 
It's a story of the life, milestones and regrets of four generations of women from North Western England and isn't a bag of laughs which is strange given the area in which it is set
It was, however  a nice treat and one I shall reciprocate with a night out at Chester's Storyhouse Theatre soon.
My sister is good company at the theatre , she's good at the pithy one liner in reviews
When I got home , I did that nurse Glasgow Coma scale  neurocheck on Winnie as she waved her fat paw very slowly in the air at me from her resting place on the couch.
She passed.15/15

  3. Catching up with you John, after a week or so of moving house and setting up internet access. Your story of the silver tankard has made me tear up, my dear. I am glad to hear Winnie is still smiling, and I hope that you are too, from time to time. Cheers to the new car!!

  4. Origin of the production's title - a playground rhyme:-

    My Mother said, I never should
    Play with the gypsies in the wood.
    If I did, she would say;
    'Naughty girl to disobey!

    Your hair shan't curl and your shoes shan't shine,
    You gypsy girl, you shan't be mine!
    And my father said that if I did,
    He'd rap my head with the teapot lid.

    Nothing beats having a nurse in the family as I'm sure sweet Winnie is well aware. 15/15 is stellar!

    My dear and dearly departed MIL said that often over the decades I've been married to her wonderful son.

  30. What a tough ole bitch! Winnie that is!!

  31. What a wonder dogs can be. Our old guy golden retriever had a stroke a few years ago. His face is now lopsided (the stroke side losing muscle and drawing up rather than drooping down) but we are delighted he's stayed with us all this time and enjoyed himself, too. His behavior with other dogs immediately changed. He became more submissive as if he recognized he could never hold his own with other dogs, but he gradually became better oriented. Wishing you and Winnie the best. And congratulations on the car! I'm just catching up on a few days' worth of posts.

  33. HOLY SHITE! I'm in California. When you said "she passed" my HEART STOPPED. I thought you meant she passed away. Imagine my relief when I read the comments and realized you meant SHE PASSED THE NEUROLOGICAL TEST!! Praise God, you don't need anymore grief right now.

  35. Having read this I believed it was rather enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and effort to put this information together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!
