A thoroughly lovely Mothers' Twodays if that makes sense!
Took Mum to the wonderful new Everyman Theatre in Liverpool to see Twelfth Night on Saturday. Mike and I were at the spectacular opening just a few weeks ago and Twelfth Night has had tremendous reviews (Independent 4*, What's on Stage 5*, Guardian, 3*). I guess since those early reviews, items such as scene change timings have been ironed out, 'cos it was smooth running and utterly captivating. Especially the fun, festive end seeing the cast dancing their way off stage with balloons and streamers festooning from the ceiling.
We dined first in the fabulous basement Bistro before the show then a welcome cuppa and cake after the show in the ground floor cafe where we spotted many of the cast 'off duty'!
And before I leave the subject of the Everyman - this great architectural review in Building Design last week.
And finally Mothers' Day itself - dawning sunny and warm - so after the usual shopping top up for Mum, we sauntered on down to West Kirby prom for a bit of sea air and a tasty lunch in Tankseys. The Ham Hock soup was to die for!! And there was even free Pimms or bubbly for any Mums present:
Leg stretch along the edge of the marine lake
then back to Mum's for slap up Sunday roast.
And on arriving back home in Sheffield - this other Mum had the most wonderful Spring-like fragrant bouquet awaiting her
such a lovely unexpected treat - thank you so much J & J x x x
