<< Najo, Monday 21/11/11 Too soon?
Najo, Friday 18/11/11 Sleepy ..... yawn >>
...I'm getting today's journal in early.
We're just getting ready to go to drama. Daughter has to take the anti-panto class (although she's only 15) because the actual teacher is elsewhere this week. So the plan is we'll finish there at 1.00. She'll go into town with her mates. I'll come home to have a sleep.
She'll come home at about 5.30 to get ready for the birthday party she's attending. I'll get up and get ready for the hospice - fortunately sister's son decided he could use his own car or borrow his wife's car today to allow sister to do a shift at the hospice.
I'll drop daughter off to party then go to hospice and relieve sister. Daughter will stay with a friend tonight and someone will arrive to relieve me at some point tomorrow.
That's the plan anyway. I'll let you know tomorrow if it all went a smoothly as we thought.
That makes my one hour with elderly father in law in hospital seem like a walk in the park.
I hope the night goes well and the person relieving you turns up on time.
What's anti panto?
I'm guessing it's a spoof pantomime? Might try to get along and see that!
Good morning, the actual pantomime is Aladdin and we're doing 21 shows so that's rather a large commitment. We have over 200 children involved with the drama group and not all of them can commit to the heavy rehearsal and show schedule soooooooooo
they do the anti-panto!
They meet for 2 hours each week and have been rehearsing just as long as the panto people have. This year they're doing a devised piece based on the song 'Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer'. They're of all age groups from tiddlies through middlies to seniors and their show will have one performance on a date I can't quite remember.
When I remember the details I'll let you know - the show's fun, free and a great showcase for the children.
Ah, I see - anti-panto in the same sense as antipope, an alternative to the official version.
