Weeza was very sympathetic but took my fall without drama, so that’s okay. We had a lovely visit and she cooked a chickpea, sweet potato and spinach curry for lunch, which was excellent. I took Easter eggs for the children (also dropped some off for Rufus and Perdita on the way) with a cake and the first of the rhubarb.
We were talking about the theatre in Norwich and I said I’m a Friend, so do let me know if there’s anything for which you need early booking. I also get a bit off the ticket price and 2 for 1 on the first night of dramas … actually, that wasn’t how it started. We were talking about birthday presents and I said I was taking Wink to Guys and Dolls at the Bridge Theatre in London for her birthday (a couple of months late, but that’s okay) and then we talked about musicals, which Weeza rarely likes. But Zerlina does and she said that, of the two she was interested in this spring, one has already sold out. And, being a good mum and granny, I relieved Weeza of any pressure to take z to the other by going online and booking tickets to it for the two of us. It’s Heathers – I’ve heard of the film but never seen it and I didn’t know they’d made a musical of it. So I am sure it’ll be brilliant fun and I’m looking forward to an evening out with Zerlina.
I’ve sat in silence, alone in the evenings, so much for the past year that I’m pulling myself together. I rarely bother to put the tv on (I only watch on the computer, I’ve given my tv to Wink, though I do have Tim’s in the study) and I sometimes listen to music or the radio, but often don’t bother. I’m not lonely by myself, only lonely for whom I’ve lost, but this is no way to behave for the rest of my life. I’m going out as much as I can.
Wink will be away that week, so I’ve suggested to z that she comes back here for the night, because it’s too long to leave eCat if I stay at her house. And she assures me that she won’t be embarrassed to be taken out by her old granny. So that’s all good.
