Uneven Sunburn

We went to see a performance of 'Taming of the Shrew' in the open air at Roundhay Park today by heartbreak productions.  They were awesome.  However one arm is now a pale pink and the other is the normal washed out colour.

Bear was meh about it.  We took him just in case.  He schmoozed with one of the ladies before hand who was encouraging him to play quoits, enjoyed the first half but was lost during the second half.  We are definitely going to see them next year!  It was nice to be in the fresh air and it was a great performance.

We have a new-to-us car.  It's the same make, model and year as the last one but with a lot less mileage.  I drove in a car for the first time since the accident on the way home and I admit to getting a little nervous.  I still think DH is an awesome driver, but we passed a few idiots and one bump on our way home.  It looked like no-one was hurt which was a relief but three cars were all lined up with battered parts and people taking details.

Also, and this is shocking, there are already Christmas cards in the shops.  It is August.  I needed a sit down after seeing that.


  1. Christmas seems to come earlier, every year, doesn't it? I went to the Sri Lankan store today and they have several Christmas puddings!

  2. I would love to go to an open air theatre - I keep seeing them advertised but the dates never fit in with our other commitments! Driving these days is more like playing dodgems on the roads only without those thick protective rubber bumpers! We were out on the roads yesterday - Huddersfield, Halifax then M62 to IKEA in Leeds and we witnessed some horrendous driving and parking! Stay safe.

  3. Definitely not ready for Christmas yet! Half of my feet have a really good tan and not the other as a result of the shoes I've been wearing. They look really funny!
