Well, we have reached departure day. My house sitter is ready and Sheba is still very concerned. I am trying to finish last minute tasks including this post, get in a walk and make sure I haven’t forgotten anything like (as i discovered this morning a luggage tag – guess I’ll be making a trip out before I leave at 2pm). Anyway, I have had great time this week having dinner with friends – thanks to all for not making me buy groceries. On Monday, I was able to get in a movie with Rhoda and Sandy (Obvious Child – good film if you are looking for something) and then dinner at their house. On Tuesday, I met Terry at Soundbar to watch the World Cup (sorry USA). We were joined for a bit by Jeffrey and then Terry and I had dinner at Nick Ryan’s Saloon. Last night, Rhoda and Sandy were kind enough to have me back again for dinner.
I have made plans to meet up with a former student while in London. She is taking me to see a couple of operas as well guide me through the V & A. Also, hoping to catch up with Margaret and Jane. They are considering my schedule at present. I expect we will be able to get together. I have one long weekend and plan to to go Bath and Bristol as well as Stonehenge that weekend.
First up, though is helping Christina get ready for the first class on Sunday (which I am skipping to go see Cosi Fan Tutte at the English National Opera with Vikki). Then we are off and running – first up is The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time at the Gielgud Theatre. I am really looking forward to this production. Fathom Events was featuring this production for their fall schedule.
