What I did in the summer of 2018Inspired by my nephew writing all about his summer holiday at school I thought it would be interesting to keep a note of all the things I've been doing this summer instead of crazy theatre going and binge reading.
To be truthful there has been some theatre going, since May I've seen:
- Two Noble Kinsmen (the Globe)
- The Chalk Garden (Chichester Festival Theatre)
- Othello (the Globe)
- Me and My Girl (Chichester Festival Theatre)
- Pressure (the Ambassadors Theatre)
- Emilia (the Globe)
- Love's Labour's Lost (the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse)
So apart from a lot of resting, and poppy sorting (more on this soon), what have I been up to?
Spending time with family has featured highly this summer and thanks to the lovely weather we've been able to get out and about a lot too. We've been to cricket matches, family meals and also Legoland but there are two huge highlights.
The GoGoHares trail here in Norfolk - family came to stay with us for this and we spent several days out and about in the city and county looking for the beautiful sculptures.
Then while the good weather lasted we returned the visit to family and spent a glorious Saturday in Ashford following the Snowdog trail.
We've done lots of other things too but the joy we had discovering beautiful sculptures and new areas of both locations will be hard to beat - and the fun and laughter we shared was brilliant. Here's hoping that the auctioning of the sculptures later in the year raises loads of money for each charity. Huge thanks to everyone who has made these two events so great.
