The Cat in the Hat – A Review

The Cat in the Hat is an amazing show. I went to see it with my girls and a friend and her kids at the Curve Theatre on 22nd December 2018.

In a vain attempt to honour Dr Seuss’s books, I’m going to try and rhyme this review.

The story begins like in the book:
Rain pelters down on living room windows, while one bored kid stares out and another one sighs
Attempting to entertain themselves, they pick up a book for a page or two
But then, water guns come out and spray the crowd while bubbles from above, entrance little audience’s big eyes.

It has been a long time since I last went to a Christmas concert in a church but if I was going to go to one, I’m glad this is the one I went to. The whole concert has been pretty amazing from the singers, musicians to the execution of the whole show. Continue reading “Loros Christmas Concert”

Maybe it’s because she’s still young. Continue reading “Pre-half term holiday sickness”

In aid of National Poetry Day

To read other poems that I have written, you can follow this link – Poems. Continue reading “In aid of National Poetry Day”

Buddhism for Mothers by Sarah Naptoli

I started reading Buddhism for Mothers while on holiday. On holiday its really easy to take on board all the exercises outlined and even to try out some of the meditating exercise. Since coming back, even though I’ve tried being mindful but its not that easy. However, the best thing about Buddhism is not to berate yourself about it but peacefully move along and carry on when you can again. Continue reading “Buddhism for Mothers by Sarah Naptoli”
