day four: cat


A sweet friend texted late in the afternoon to say he had a spare ticket for the panto this evening at Hackney Empire. Would I like to go? Yes, I would...

Bright, loud, local, jolly, a small and enthusiastic band, a decent dame, sweets thrown into the auditorium, lovely frocks, tap dancing (I love tap dancing), the very best chorus for the audience sing-song, an excellent Puss with a Jamaican accent and winning ways. 

I do like a cat in a panto; and an advent calendar.

I think your advent calendar is just so original, and such fun.

Me, too. And you've reminded me I still have my old tap shoes in one of the cupboards here.

What, no pantomime horse? The most hilarious creature alive, I think (and have thought for almost all of my 65 years....) But a cat is good too!

Have just caught up with you - my, you've had a little blog-fest of late, haven't you? Love the factory dress!

The best bit about Pantos are the children in the audience ... and I don't just mean the under 14s . I mean everyone who yells " He's behind you !! "
