Hurrah for not being at work on Wednesdays any more. I can now do Orange Wednesdays and get a cheeky, cheapy afternoon trip to the cinema for half the price.
This week, therefore I had all my emotions wrung out with "Les Miserables"
I know some people didn't like the singing being live and by actors who were technically not singers but I loved it. It's long been my favourite musical and, while I can understand others not getting on with the music, I find it very emotive. Yes, I had a little sniffle as Anne Hathaway gave everything as Fantine, at Eponine's sacrifice and Jean Valjean's leavetaking and the finale. Phew!
Back in the real world I finally finished THE BLANKIE!
Not as big as I first thought I would make but there are so many other things I want to do that something had to give. Now to knit socks, The Girl Genius' new cardi, cushions... ... ...
This first week as a retiree has simply felt like a week off. I have been told that this feeling lasts for a week or two then the realisation that you don't have work to go back to suddenly kicks in. This can stimulate a good or bad reaction - I'm hoping for euphoria!
