Well first of all apologies for more blog meltdown yesterday. Honestly I have no idea what happened and can only hope it's sorted now-there seems little point in writing an early morning bulletin if it arrives mid-afternoon. Thank you for your patience, even if you haven't been.
Deep breath...
A swift exit yesterday to The Aldwych Theatre in London's glittering West End to see Wolf Hall. Nathaniel Parker plays Henry VIII and is on the show today. He is terrific as the monarch obsessed with siring a son and heir. I haven't read either of Hilary Mantel's novels (for shame) but knew them to be brilliant, dense and with a cast of thousands. Well the play is fabulous, funny and riveting from start to finish. You sort of know the story but then realise you don't actually. Wasn't Thomas More a good guy? Was Thomas Cromwell an ancestor of Oliver? Is it possible to look cool in floppy hat? Nathaniel will be here from 6, his admirers swooning as he passes. His Inspector Lynley was a big deal but he's been one of our leading thesps for a while and it'll be good to have him on the show. And HENRY THE EIGHTH oldies should keep him happy. If there are songs about gout, now is the time to choose them.
Now let's see if I can get this posting on your screen before teatime.

    #92 - Janey, you do know me SO well :-) Not had a Tunnock this week yet, knew there was something missing!

    Not the best football last night. First of all the bloke who arranges it let 4 extra players, so it was 7 a side and no room the match to flow. I got an elbow to the gob within the first 5 mins and a cut bottom lip for my trouble!! Not goals form moi and we played until 11.25pm - very glad to be working from hoke today, as travel report says 3 separate accidents M1 south!

    Have a good one everyone...

    #102 Dearest Flo, I am very sorry about the 'pinch', I thought there'll have been a list of names. If it helps to soothe the pain, it's happened to me loads. x
