Wednesday Night Live

The dancing queen had an hours dancing lesson in Sheffield City Centre this evening, and as I had heard that the city council had decided that they would try and draw people into the city for late night shopping, drinking, eating etc on Wednesday evenings by providing live street entertainment, I thought we may as well drop her off and see what it was all about. We missed the Bollywood dancing, but I had heard that a Jazz style singer would be in Leopold square at 6.30pm.

Leopold Square is a "new" square that they have made out if the very old city centre school. The buildings are really lovely. They have opened restaurants and just the odd bar, and a new hotel here and the atmosphere is very pleasant.
The singer was Paul Pashley who I believe is a Sheffield lad and sang at Wayne Rooney and Coleens wedding - not the best advertisement for him, but he was superb. He sang Sinatra, Matt Monroe, Harry Konnick Jnr etc and we really enjoyed it. I would have paid to see him. I will definately be looking to see what they have planned for next week. They are running the nights until September.

sorry I drove you mad with my postcards lovie! We had such a good time but as you say, can't get back into the swing of things. Raining today so no garden, no money to go shopping, that just leaves housework and ironing-boo hoo!
Lots of Love
