Let's paint the town red

Lots happening this weekend. Last night I went to Leicester to see the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain, which was great fun. I went with a fellow uke player and we decided that we've either got to set fire to our instruments or practise MUCH harder.

Tonight I'm off to the theatre in Northampton to see A Tale of Two Cities. My friend Will is in it, which is very exciting.

Tomorrow, we have tickets for Kettering Arts Centre, which is hosting the Reduced Shakespeare Company's The Bible, which you might have seen mentioned in the press as being a bit controversial. There have been accusations of blasphemy. Since our arts centre is run by the vicar and his wife, I'm not expecting to be offended.

On to the celebrations. This week, we have been celebrating my son's birthday, which we managed to stretch out over several days.

Also, a BIG celebration that the £600 I was owed by a client for work done in December has been paid today.

Celebrate the Small Things is a bloghop. Join in the celebrations via VikLit's blog 'Scribblings of an Aspiring Author' here.

Have a lovely weekend, folks.

  2. Loved your comment about burning your instruments - ha! If I practiced half as much as needed, I wouldn't always feel so grossly unskilled! And congrats on finally getting paid! That's a BIG thing!

    1. It was very good. The theatre is always very strong on elements like use of space and set design. This was quite a wordy play (well, it is Dickens!), but enthralling.

  6. Good celebrations here, Julia.
    Christians aren't supposed to be offended anymore. Besides, many Christian leaders are now so 'trendy' I'm certain they've thrown their Bibles away!
    A ukulele orchestra - this sounds fascinating. My grandmother would have only thought of George Formby and what he had in his hand!
