A Make and a Musical

I've been having computer problems. My laptop has been getting slower and slower and doing anything has taken so long, I have transferred all my photos onto a memory stick and this has helped. It's just as well as there are loads to sort through and get printed, it's one of those things I always mean to get round to........

School starts again on Monday. We had our PJ day earlier in the week and S has stayed over with my mum one night and they have both had friends over so they have kept busy.
On Wedneday I had to take T to the orthodontist and so our day was geared to working around the afternoon appointment.
In the morning S and I made a firework rocket each.
Crepe paper and stickers were stuck onto a cardboard tube and then lengths of ribbon hung around the bottom.

There are quite a few charity shops near where I needed to take T and we had just enough time to pop into one before hand where I found this top for £1.99. Like I need any more!

The highlight of Wednesday was a night out at the Nuffield for me and G. Way back in January I had booked us tickets to see Miss Nightingale. If you click on the link it'll take you to the website where there is a further link to a trailer.
It's a love story set against the backdrop of war torn London in 1942 and is full of sometimes very funny and sometimes very heartfelt songs. Amber Topaz who plays Miss Nightingale was superb as was Ilan Goodman. Well to be honest they were all fabulous, a small cast who could all sing, play instruments and act. Well worth the wait from January for. If it comes near you on it's tour then I would say go, it's a thoroughly entertaining show.


  1. Love the top, bit of a bargain!

  2. Ah but that's the good thing about Charity shop tops - they don't cost a lot. I got a lovely Boden one last week.

    Our community centre is staging a Burlesque show in the winter. Some of us have joked, is the village ready for such a show ?! Needless to say the charity shop girls & I will be going !

  3. It looks good. I've just looked at the tour dates and I think Halifax or Sheffield is the nearest it's getting to Leeds, I'll certainly watch out for it though, you know how much we love the theatre. Glad you had a good night.

  4. Sounds like a nice week.It's great you can find so many lovely tops in the charity shops. I rarely find anything in any of them - and my town has about 20 of them! - as I'm so tiny, there is never anything in them at the size 6/8 end of the scale!

  5. Pretty top, LIsa, - and that musical sounds right up my street. Just checked out the website and sadly it isn't touring anywhere near me at all, but I'll keep an eye out in case it does so in future. Glad you've had a good half term - it's flown by, hasn't it? x

  6. Its coming to Sheffield - i'll have to try and get a couple of tickets Thanks for the recommendation. xxxx

  7. You always find such nice things in your local charity shops! Your half term sounds like a nice mix or busy and quiet and I love the sound of that musical. x

  8. You can never have enough tops..can you? Since losing weight I'm really enjoying picking up bargains in the CS and they all look like new! Only trouble is I need more wardrobe space.
    Have a lovely week.

    Bellaboo :0)
