May Madness Part Two

My friend Grace came down the Thursday after I saw Sleeping Beauty and we went to Lumiere, our favourite restaurant. It was good to have a talk with her, especially since the last time I saw her was at her father's memorial service, which was packed. I explained that my parents and I had left because we didn't want them to feel like they had to talk to us when it wasn't necessary. Grace commented that it would have been nice if other people had showed the same tact. She went to Bath Spa the next day while I had to work (the holiday calendar was all booked up).

That Saturday, I went to see Oz The Great and Powerful at the Guildhall with Lorna, which was surprisingly good. I recommend it! The Sunday after, Mum and Dad came up to see me, along with Helen and we went to The Parrot in Cheltenham, which is a steakhouse. The roast was pretty good but the lobster bisque was a little strong for me.

On Wednesday 15th May, Helen and I went up to London to see The Tempest at Shakespeare's Globe. I had talked about taking her there ever since I saw Dr Faustus a couple of years ago and I was worried that she would be disappointed, but she wasn't. We had standing tickets so we were smack bang in the middle of the action as the cast often comes down from the stage and through the audience! Colin Morgan was very good as Ariel and I was gobsmacked by Jessie Buckley's English accent, since the last time I saw her, she was on I'd Do Anything with a very thick Irish brogue! We enjoyed ourselves very much. When I told Helen afterwards that Colin was Merlin, she started exclaiming "I thought I'd seen him before!" Ha!

R came down for the weekend so we could see Star Trek Into Darkness (verdict: good but not as good as the first film and Harrison could have stayed Harrison and still been chilling and villainous). We also watched both my DVDs of Batman: The Animated Series and I cooked roast chicken. The chicken was nicely done but the gravy was weak, so I swore I'd do better next time.

This concludes my mad May!
