Tin, Fresh Eggs and Armandii

Today I was sent a link to an excerpt from the play The Fate of Jeremy Visick and thought you might like to see it. My review of the play was in yesterday’s blog.

I love it when our fresh eggs from friends’ chickens have straw on them!

Our Clematis Armandii is heavy with buds, the best it has ever been. We’re looking forward to the flowers.

A Play, A Pie and My Glass for Sale

A few weeks ago, a lovely friend saw the poster below, advertising a play that had been written from one of my Dad’s novels – The Fate of Jeremy Visick

Stage Struck and The Fate of Jeremy Visick

I saw the play last night and was moved to tears by this production. The interpretation of the story, the bringing up-to-date of elements, the cast – especially the two amazing 11 years olds who played Matthew and Jeremy – the music, the use of technology, the very cleverly designed set all combined to make an unforgettable evening and one which my dear Dad would have been so proud to know about! I sat there almost bursting with pride that all those people were there, on stage and in the audience, because my lovely Dad had written this story! Thank you to Judith Nicholls and to all involved. Let’s hope it can be put on again. It deserves a much wider audience.

I made a Turkey and Leek pie for dinner tonight.

I visited the display of my glass in The Craft Collective while in town on Saturday! I’ve up-cycled  lots of the bits of sea-glass, earrings, bracelets and other beady bits that friends have given me and have lots more for the next series that I have started already.

Dad’s Book, Singing and A Discovery

A delightful surprise today when a friend rang to say that she had seen a poster for a musical play of one of my Dad’s books! The Fate of Jeremy Visick is to be performed in a couple of weeks and of course, we now have tickets. The book was first adapted by Judith Cook and we all came down from Yorkshire to see the Premiere at The Barbican Theatre in Plymouth in 1990! It is so lovely to know that my Dad’s work is still being appreciated. We love the poster and think Dad would have approved.

Thirteen singers from my two choirs met at the building site that is The Hall for Cornwall to entertain the dignitaries who were being shown around. We sang in the stair-well and the acoustics were brilliant. The audience in their hard hats and hi-vis jackets were very appreciative.

In the process of the building works, a beautiful gate has been discovered. It was buried inside a wall and dates from before 1914 so is well over 100 years old.  The plans have been altered a little to make sure this discovery is integrated into the new building.

Delightful discovery
