Busy Week

I am having a very busy but totally great week so far. On Monday, the dancing queen and I went to see "Flashdance" the musical at Sheffield Lyceum theatre. It was fabulous - go and see it if you get chance. The entire cast were excellent singers and dancers. We came out wanting to don our leg warmers!! We love musical theatre (when its good!!) and we go as often as we can afford to. A night at the theatre is a perfect night out for myself and the dancing queen. We have seen Evita and Cabaret recently and we have also got tickets for Westside Story in a few weeks time.

I am addicted to Martin Lewis's Money Saving Expert website - especially the "freebies" forum. I have used this site for a couple of years now - its totally amazing what you can get for free. One thing that we regularly get is free cinema tickets. We usually get free tickets for all of us (and our friends too) at least once, and often twice per week. On Tuesday we went to see the 3D film "Coraline". What an experience - it was totally amazing. I now want all my movies to be in 3D. The story is very wierd, and a bit scarey for smaller kids, but it was so wonderful to watch.
I'll tell you about some of my other freebies another time, but it is truly amazing what you can get "for nowt".

This evening we took a stroll around the last of the lakes on the Wentworth Estate (there are four in total). It was a lovely sunny evening and perfect for a quick walk. I'm having a great week, but the ironing is pile is mounting!!!

Great week you're having with plenty of variety! The ironing can wait I'm sure.
Martin's site is fab I agree, I like the Old Style board.

It sounds like one of those weeks when you save the ironing for a rainy afternoon - go out whilst the sun shines. I remember seeing Flashdance at the cinema years ago and have an LP somewhere of the soundtrack - I bet it was wonderful on stage:)

Caroline said...

Such a shame you did not have time to do the ironing... what a lovely week you have been having.
I really envy you Wentworth estate though, it looks gorgeous!

You have been having a great time! Enjoy it!

Never mind the ironing, just smooth it out a bit! It will only be worn and get dirty again!!

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
