A night at the opera



l missed out last night. The boys went to the theatre in York to the opening night of Wuthering Heights premiered at the Theatre Royal York. It wasn't all pleasure however, the evening featured local food producers who were providing samples of their delicious food for the theatre goers. Apparently Harry was mobbed by female drama students! Unfortunately l was still busy when they left & just didn't have time to get spruced up. The evening went well, they had even enjoyed the play which featured just 4 members of the cast. So each time they died they would return as someone else. Hubby was shocked at just how skinny the actresses were & that they were unwilling to let very much in the form of sustenance pass their lips.


Whilst they were out, l decided to wash the sofa covers. Unfortunately, the covers have now got 'scorch' marks all over them from the washing powder. How l just don't know. l changed brand last week & some of the clothes have got bleach marks on them too, ie] black shirts have orange marks on. So now my sofa covers have got pale terracotta marks on & in just the places that stand out like a sore thumb! It's all ebays fault you see. l won a huge pair of brand new, interlined very long curtains & well, l thought the sofa needed a bit of spruce up? l should have known better, me & cleaning up just don't go at all. l always make three times as much mess as was originally there. It's a bit of a standing joke concerning me with dusters & hoovers. Luckily Hubby loves tidying & hoovering. What a relief!

l am hoping to get a day off tomorrow, l would rather like to take the dogs up onto the moors for a gentle stroll, Hubby wants to travel from Pickering to Whitby on the North York Moors Railway. Hmm, not really that keen. Have done the Thomas the Tank bit with Harry big time Toot Toot!! Please no more!
Um, just had quick word concerning this year's Game Fair. Looks as though we might be doing a demo / talk organised through Annie Stirk & her team at the Regional Food Group. That should be fun. l do have a problem with talking, basically l do rather a lot of it as anyone who knows me will tell you. l think she said a 25 minute slot? Question & answer format. Should be fun. Oh well, l'll worry about it just before l start to speak on the day, best way really. Don't panic Captain Mainwaring!

The demo/talk sounds fun. Oh don't remind me - Thomas the Tank Engine - he ruled our house for a while. I would have been inclined to force-feed those actresses!

Ah, that eBay habit. It's very dangerous you know!

Made me laugh about the sofa covers-I am a big E-bayer-however I sell, rather than buy much!

+thinking about your 25 minutes slot and public speaking!-I can't believe I used to be a regional Training Manager with the bank and would think nothing to presenting to 400+ people right up to Senior Bank Managers and Area Directors!! I would DIE now at the thought of it.

YOu are a brave woman Muddyboots!!

warm wishes

M's sister lives in Pickering. We have been on the railway, it's well worth it. Have a good day tomorrow at your demo.

I'll probably be a The Game Fair, so if you need a plant in the audience, I'd be up for it, looking forward to seeing you at The Game Fair anyway, was the debate about a traybake, whether it's been bakes or not as they were a few mutterings about that at ours

i'd pay to hear it

Enjoy the Game Fair - it sounds very interesting.

Good old eBay has a lot to answer for in this household too, I'm afraid! If the covers wont re-wash with a mild stain remover, will you be able to dye them another colour, or is that going to make it even worse?x

You sound like you deserve a day off, Muddyboots. Have a great time whatever you decide, Crystal x

Hi Muddyboots - I hope you had a good day off and got to do something just for you.
I have had some cleaning tragedies too - new towells with horrible bleach marks, shirts with horrid faded streaks....
The Great Dane is the one in our house who does all the vacuuming.

Just catching up, at last. Your photos are lovely, especailly the one at the restaurant looking out over the sea, please tell me it is this country?! Know what you mean about the weather improving once the children are in school, happens here too. Pain about the washing powder, how frustrating. I have just washed the happy farmer's new pink shirt in washing powder only to read the instructions as I hung it on the line to find it need a whole load of specail care laundry codes to follow, am hoping it hasn't shrunk!
