Yes, we're off again. To London on Thursday. Lots of things planned, but the main reason for the trip is for a tombstone-laying ceremony on my dad's grave, which is to be held Sunday morning.
To counter this rather solemn occasion I have booked us 5th row centre stall seats at Evita on Friday; the same seats (I always try and get E12/13 whenever I book theatres) for Les Mis on Saturday (haven't seen it since it left the Palace Theatre, hope it works just as well on a smaller stage); We're off to the Corn Exchange in Cambridge Sunday evening to see a singer I have long admired - Al Stewart (yes, he of Year of the Cat). Friends and food will be fitted in around these plans and I am so looking forward to seeing London again.
One thing is the restaurants I will be selecting for our lunches. Living in France with a superb, prize-winning restaurant about a 15 min drive from our home, we really want to pick a different cuisine but what to choose? We're spoilt for choice really in London town. Maybe Michael Moore in Baker Street? Perhaps Pasha in Kensington?
