Peg at home

Mum is now successfully (I think) ensconced at home. I'm doing her shopping and generally keeping an eye on things for her. She rang tonight with a list of things she needed - it was just like old times.

On Wednesday I met B&P for a quick Japanese meal before we headed off to the Athenaeum for a splendid performance of The Marriage of Figaro presented by Melbourne Opera. A standout performance in an overall good cast was the Susannah of Suzie Shakespeare.

Then last night I took nephew SP to a preview of Wicked which stood up well against the London performance I saw in '06. The production of course was a carbon copy (it's a franchise after all) and the cast acquitted themselves brilliantly - dare I suggest that Rob Guest made a better Wizard than Nigel Planer. The audience (us included) thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
