bluespirit: (SGA Mike/Gus heart)
We had a lovely evening out last night.
We went to the Malvern Festival Theatre to see Agatha Christie's 'The Mousetrap' which is in its 60th year.
It was a lovely, old-style country house murder mystery.  A little dated perhaps (it is 60 years old!) but good fun.
Mr B & I had a guess at the murderer in the interval & it turned out we were right!  Though with all the usual Christie red herrings, it could have been anyone! *g*
Before the theatre, we had a smashing meal at our usual place - a very superior Indian restaurant *g* - & I had a gorgeous Kashmiri Murghi Biryani (which has prune & pineapple in it): yummy!
The only downer of the evening was that I felt a cold creeping on (Mr B has a beaut at the moment) & I've woken up with it in full force. :(

I saw on the news about Hurricane Gonzalo hitting Bermuda. I couldn't help thinking 'I hope that Gus & Mike are okay' & then realised that they don't actually live there (or anywhere beyond my imagination!) What am I like? *g*

Off to pick up the Budlington now - he had a sleepover at his Nan's while we went out. ♥

Happy Sunday, all!
*hugs*

We had a lovely day down in London on Saturday & managed to get last minute tickets for Chariots of Fire at the Gielgud.
What an amazing show! They'd built the stage partly in the round with a few rows of seats actually on the stage like
a sporting stadium - & our seats were right on the front row of that! It was brilliant - we were practically IN the production. :)
They'd made a running track on the stage (on a circular turntable) & it also extended out into the stalls. It was incredible. And when the Vangelis music started, it just made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up! I can really rec seeing it (the run has now been extended again until Feb).

There's a little bit in this publicity vid that shows the stage layout (at about 1 min 20s), & you can see the people in the stadium seating on stage which is just where we were. :)



Oh, & Simon Williams was in it (I loved him in Upstairs, Downstairs when I was a kid.)  So that was another bonus. *g*
