Cats And Other Things
I went to see Cats at Leeds Grand Theatre last night. I've never seen it before and to be honest, when Eleanor asked if I wanted to see it with her, I wasn't that bothered. I wasn't particularly looking forward to it but I'd been exactly the same when we went to see Wicked and yet I absolutely loved that so I hoped it was going to be the same with Cats. Well, what can I say? I liked it but I didn't love it. I thought the dance routines were exceptional, the costumes were purrfect (sorry, couldn't resist) but the show as a whole didn't really do it for me. I'm glad I've seen it but I wouldn't bother again.
Eleanor's finished her exams now, she had the final two yesterday so she's now got to wait until the middle of August for the results. That's it now, no more school runs, no homework, it's a funny feeling having your children all grown up and no longer going to school. This is Eleanor on her first day back in 2002, she started in the September and she'd just turned four in the July.
And this was her yesterday about to set off for the last time.
We go on holiday tomorrow to Cornwall for a fortnight. There's WiFi at the place we're staying but the reception isn't very good so I doubt I'll be around until I get back. The weather forecast isn't looking promising for next week, I just hope it picks up in time for the second week.
