I'm so sorry for the unexpected blog intermission. A wonderful weekend in Ludlow (more tomorrow) was slightly marred by waking up last Sunday with a migraine. I decided to try not to take my normal medications (apart from pain relief) as as though they work extremely well they cause me to have rebound migraines and then I'm onto a never ending cycle of medicine/headache/medicine/headache etc. So I started school on Monday with very good intentions. I lasted until 3.40am on Wednesday and took an injection; got to school late, burst into tears and had to go home. Thursday was indescribable and I was worried it was going to be another 14 day cycle but I slowly improved and, joy of joy, felt better by Friday evening. I just can't believe it, even now!
It meant that I was able to fully enjoy watching Alice last night in her latest TAF Gold production Aladdin. She was an narrator this time and Anth and I could hardly believe how much she has matured from last year's performance. She even won an award...for the Blondest Arabian!
Poor Alice, I apparently even managed to embarrass her whilst sitting in a darkened theatre. She overheard people saying when they left the stage,
"Who's that lady with the enormous camera?"
Knowing who that must be she replied,
"Oh that's my mum and if you wait you'll hear her scream after the flash and bang of the Genie's lamp...3..2..1"
.."Ah!" I leaped into the air and even managed to scratch Lucy's face as my hands flew up.
Apparently there was a lot of sniggering behind the curtain..
