I have reached my 40th Birthday. After many years of joking that I had been undergoing 40’s counselling, the big day came….. and went! Surprise, surprise, it was just like any other day and I don’t feel any different today!
Of course, the ‘big party’ is this weekend, so maybe I’ll feel a little different next Sunday!
What was really nice was all the wonderful Birthday wishes I received – thank you to everyone who sent me a Birthday wish or thought. My Facebook Wall has never been so busy!
My parents and hubbie took me out for Dinner and a Show. There’s a running joke in our house, that Dinner and a Show means takeway and a drive-in movie (for those of us who are old enough to remember what a drive-in is). The joke comes from my Dad asking Mum out, when they were ‘courting’, to a dinner and show – he bought her fish and chips and went to a movie!
However, Dinner and a Show this time really was Dinner and a Show – The Patsy Cline Review show starring Barbara Thompson. Barbara is a very talented lady and her voice totally floored me. Her partner, Mark Day, is equally as a talented and did a memorable job of Willie Nelson and Kenny Rogers (among others). The costumes Barbara wore were stunning as well. Altogether, it was a well put together show and highly entertaining. I really enjoyed it.
Of course, at the end of the show, Mark and Barbara met the Patrons – very down to earth and amusing couple! If you get the chance to see these two live, it’s worthwhile – visit Barabara Thompon’s and Mark Day’s website to see where they will be.
