So, I thought I’d better just post up a with what we’ve been doing this Christmas 🙂
On Christmas Day, Phil and I went to my parents for the service in the morning, and then stayed until boxing day. It was a really nice family time, there were a few people we hadn’t seen there in a while so that was good! On boxing day, we came back home and stayed overnight. Then, on Wednesday we went down to stay with Phil’s parents.
The train journey down was pretty bad actually – the train was absolutely full due to a cancellation, so we had to stand all the way from Colchester to Liverpool Street. Ah well, c’est la vie! On Wednesday evening, we went to the pub with a couple of Phi’s friends from home. On Thursday we didn’t do very much all day really! On Friday evening, we went to the Novello Theatre in Aldwych to see “Much Ado About Nothing”. I have to admit that I couldn’t follow all the dialogue (‘Much Ado’ was never one of the plays I had to study at school), but it was very enjoyable nonetheless, and really funny in parts. Tamsin Grieg was in it, and I thought she did really well! It was a completely different character to any of the things I’ve seen her in before (she usually seems to play someone slightly absent minded and / or scatty), but I think she pulled it off very well indeed. I’d certainly recommend any Shakespeare / Theatre fans to go and see it, I’m not sure when it’s running until though!
Anyway. That’s all in terms of news of the week… I suppose I ought to mention what we got for Christmas though!
We got a whole range of things. We got a bread bin, a calendar, a couple of books, lots of chocolate / other foodstuffs, and a couple of CDs. Plus a few other bits and pieces.
I bought Paul McCartney’s oratorio “Ecce Cor Meum” (Behold My Heart) for Phil. It’s actually a really lovely piece – I was much impressed with it! I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but it’s a really lovely piece of music.
And… I don’t think I have any other reviews to put up here, so that’s it from me!
