Nothing like a sleep-in with the kittehs on a Saturday morning, followed by a lazy breakfast. Bliss!
Thank you all for your kind words about my back - very pleased to report that I am feeling miles better, almost 100% again thank goodness. Yoga seems to be really helping!
I was lucky enough to score a subscribers ticket to see Don Quixote at the Sydney Opera House today. So, dragged the bump to the ballet for a matinee viewing - hopefully the first of many such outings with her!
Madeleine Eastoe was dancing the role of Kitri today, much to my great joy - she is quite simply sublime. Such control. She and Kevin Jackson were just fantastic. And I absolutely loved coryphee Benedicte Bemet as Amour, she was absolutely luminous, her smile and her feet were captivating!
I love being close enough to the stage to hear the dancers' pointe shoes, and see their faces, and today I was seated a mere 5 rows back. I always find myself moving my feet and tensing my legs during those seemingly endless fouettes or a particularly tricky allegro, and shifting my weight in my seat with the dancers. I must be a joy to sit next to! Needless to say, I walked out of there on a huge ballet-high, which sustained me all the way home (as it turns out, much needed!)
The drive home from Sydney was truly hair-raising. It was bucketing down rain and pitch dark, and there were far too many b-double trucks on the road for my comfort. Got back late and needed quick/ easy food.
Apparently McDonalds now do all-day hotcakes - this is seriously inspired. Nothing like pancakes for dinner!
Currently settling in to hibernate for the evening and read my Don Q program again - how cold is it! Ugg boots all the way
