As much as I love my children, there are times when I need to flee from them, screaming with wild abandon as I indulge myself in some non-childish activity/conversation.

Thanks to the good influence of [ profile] land_girl I shall be going to Worcester this evening to see the very talented John Shuttleworth do his thing.

A drink before the show with an ex-colleague, and 45 minutes each way of complete solitude in the car, I can hardly wait!

However, the consequence of my going tonight, and explaining to the boys about my absence, is that there are now two boys going round Leominster singing 'I Can't Go Back To Savoury Now'. I would worry, but seeing as Tom made his whole nursery sing 'Lollipop' by Mika (I was so embarrassed), explaining this away is a breeze.

I have just had a rare evening without thinking about him!

Oof, I do hope you enjoyed it.

My six year old currently has that badge / that icon on his school coat. The four year old, of course, has the minotaur one!

It was excellent - I really enjoyed it, as it seems did everyone around me. There was what seemed to be a bit of a hitch with the vocal monitor during the second half which kind of threw him a bit, but it was covered so well that I ended up doubting myself as to whether it had been a genuine problem or just a bit of showmanship. I'm thinking the former, but handled impeccably.

Graham Appleton went down really well.

Also, after the show had finished, I was waiting out in the hall to catch up with a bloke I hadn't seen for a while, when through the judicious use of eavesdropping, I realised that I was stood next to The Boss' sister, who apparently lives in Worcester. How exciting!

But yes, all in all a fantastic evening.

Oh, brilliant! It was fun to think of you there last night. So far I think I have had a spy in the camp at every performance. I think that must have been Lorna, the least talked about sister; Sally, who I know, lives in Sheffield, and Claire (married to Ainsley) is in London. How exciting!

There is usually a hitch of one sort of another, and as a long time observer I have to say that those are often the funniest bits. He recently had hypnosis which is helping him to ride over the hitches in great style, but I think his ad hoc responses to heckling and other problems are consistently his best moments. I think he's having a day off today, that was his fourth night in a row and he must be very tired.
