Being married to a policeman has its fair share of drawbacks - one of them being the shifts that he works. As a result of being a shift worker, we generally have his time off "planned" to the nth degree, but this is no guarantee that the planned event will happen - as a last minute shift change, or having to stay on after a shift has thwarted many a night out.
So last weekend was one of his precious weekends off - and we didn't have a plan! The weather on Saturday dictated that walking would not be pleasurable, so I thought we could head into Sheffield for some impromptu culture. We could do the galleries, or museums or whatever!
We happened upon much excitement outside of this new cafe/restaurant. They have apparently got a loyal following and have just moved premises. We had never heard of Gusto before, so we gave them a try. I can see why they have fans. the food and especially the service was wonderful.
We wandered through Tudor square
and decided to chance the afternoon matinee at the Lyceum where we managed to get excellent seats for the performance of Journeys End. It was a powerful performance telling the tale of very young men in the trenches of World War 1 - especially since we had driven over the Somme region last week. I wasn't on my own in having a blub at the end!
Then we battled our way home on the tram, through the hoards of people who were going to the "After Dark" fireworks display, football fans, and Britney Spears fans (of which there can't have been that many surely)!!!
