This week’s been a busy one after N broke up from school on Tuesday. What with seeing the Blenheim Palace light displays, meeting up with friends and a trip to Charlecote Park, and then the pantomime.
N’s never been to a proper panto before. Last year the Cinderella performance was more like a play than a pantomime, but the Sleeping Beauty this year was all pantomime. The last time I was in this local theatre was when I was about 13 and doing a music masterclass with a friend of mine I used to enter music duet competitions with.
The panto was good but the theatre was way too hot, and the second half could have finished just after the Princess being woken up rather than going off into some far fetched 60s plot. I don’t think we’ll be doing panto again. N is too much of a fidgeter and while he enjoyed some bits, he got bored.
Hope you all have a Merry Christmas and enjoy what family time you have. See you on the other side.
