Richard II played by David Tennant. A Shaespearean coup! What a guy. Thank you Sally for a wonderful evening. It was a live screening of the play from Stratford on Avon. What a treat. Champers and everything!
Richard II dramatizes the downfall of, you guessed it, King Richard II (1367-1400), a lousy English king who gets bumped off the throne by Henry Bolingbroke (a.k.a. King Henry IV) and then tossed in the slammer, where he experiences an identity crisis bigger than King Lears (and maybe even Hamlets) before he is finally put out of his misery (ie. murdered). Basically, it is the story of a major power shift in 14th century England, which means the play is one giant political soap opera. Thereis even a weird sex scandal (Act 3, Scene 1) that might give ex-US Congressman Anthony Weiner, former US Prez Bill Clinton, or the ex-“Governator” of California Arnold Schwarzenegger a run for their money.

Cozy n warm

On a fine and autumnal sunday afternoon Hector and I had a really special walk at Lowther. The woodland area was glorious!

Lollykin (much loved daughter of my best friend) stayed with us a couple of nights (she was in the area for a family event) and it was great to see her. Just great.

My birthday mid November – did not do much but spent a day in the Lakes visiting Mum and Sis. Sis and I had a lovely walk down to Milleground at Windermere, waling on the path past he house we grew up in. A lovely couple of hours.
