A weekend's entertainment

We've had a few weekends recently where we did relatively little, just chilling out or going for a leisurely meander and coffee in a local town. But not last weekend when it was all go!

My wife is a big Oscar Wilde fan and when I saw that The Importance of Being Earnest was on in London, with Penelope Keith playing Lady Bracknell, I decided it was time for a treat. It's important to keep surprise and delight in your marriage and she was indeed very happy with the evening out. I enjoyed it too, but I enjoyed Eleri enjoying it even more.

Then on Saturday, after Wales won the rugby, we had friends to dinner. I wrote a book on innovation with Graham and he was full of ideas for something else. I'm overloaded with other work at the moment but do watch this space!

On Sunday, we got up for a leisurely day, but then my computer beeped at me, telling me that we had another concert on in London! We wondered whether to give it a miss as Eleri was a feeling a bit tired, but we both really liked Clannad and so we went anyway. I was so glad that we did! We had great seats for a splendid performance of all the old favourites and then some. The icing on the cake was Sephira, a very young band with a couple of sisters on fiddles and a chap on keyboard. Sound dull, maybe, but they were sublime, including a powerful female voice and songs that moved Eleri to tears.

Life's too short and you've sometimes got to pack it all in. I think we succeeded there but will need a bit of a rest next week!
