Calendar Girls

Had a fabulous evening at the Lyceum in Sheffield last night watching the stage version of Calendar Girls. The play is fantastic, the cast amazing, but the fact that this is a true story is what makes this tale so heartwarming.
If you get chance - go to see it - I just know you will love it.

Tonight, the dancing queen and I are off to a "Chocolate Extravaganza" evening (yes, its a freebie night out Michela!). Much chocolate tasting and playing with chocolate by all accounts. I'll let you know how we get on!!

Ooh, a chocolate extravaganza. I gave up eating everything chocolatey for Lent and haven't got back the taste for it yet. Now there's a sentence I never thought I'd write.
