Last week started off really badly. I got a rush of blood to my head and ordered a rather expensive telescope without consulting my wife. It’s something I’ve been hankering after for a while, but only just got around to. Anyway, I got a very stern text message from D, including a , saying it had arrived. When I got home, she practically burst into tears and made it very clear she wanted it sent back! I don’t think I’ve ever seen her so upset…well, maybe once. Seeing her made me feel Although she claimed it was too big, I think a number of factors caused the upset, including the cost and proximity to Christmas.
So I sent it back! * SIGH * Maybe next year…
Later in the week I took D and my mum to see La Cage aux Folles in London. That really cheered me up. It was fantastic! A great show (considering the small stage), beautifully acted by Douglas Hodge and Denis Lawson and very, very funny! Highly recommended! “I am what I am” indeed!
Happy Christmas to you all!
