Actually, Saturday and Sunday involved buying a carton of eggs and two bottles of honey. Today (yesterday by the time this is posted) merely had the feeling it sounds like. After housekeeping and such, we decided to take advantage of Pensioners’ Discount Day on Tuesdays at a local store I refer to as The Scottish Raven (Makro). We dashed around looking for (and failing to find, in a disappointing number of cases) many things like almond icing, rechargeable batteries to go with my charger, spares for the pool pump etc. Got a number of Christmas gifts and things, though.
On return, I mowed lawns and tidied one of the three levels (the cottage one – I mowed the pavement yesterday). Then I repaired some outside lights and replaced globes. My cat M followed me from job to job, watching with fascination, and only moving as far from lawnmower and trimmer as was prudent.
I am so behind with blogging that I haven’t even reported on the KickStart panto at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre. As usual, the opening night was packed, and there was a standing ovation at the end. Sinbad the Sailor provided scope for hilarious happenings, spectacular stage sets, and a rollicking tale, yo-ho! The kids loved it as kids should, and there was also much for the adults to enjoy. We can certainly recommend it to anyone in Durban at this juncture (particularly on days when the continuing rain and cold makes the beach not a particularly good idea) as something not to be missed over the holiday period.
Saying much about it is difficult without providing spoilers. I can’t resist mentioning, though, that there is one puppet that literally fills the entire stage. You have to see it to believe it!
Anyway, a promotional poster with the cast, joined here for no particular reason (except that it was fun adding her) by M doing ballet.
