#MouseMooMeToo Cowprints – 4th September 2016
1 minutes to read

Some of my more avid readers (all three of you) may recall my post where I apologised to Mouse for generally being a bit shit and neglectful and not making enough time for her. 

Well, today I mothered the hell out of mothering with a little outing to the theatre. That’s right, the theatre. Stick Man was in town, and a friend and I booked tickets aaaaaaages ago, possibly even before I was guilt riddled about my shoddy parenting. Being at the crack of September, my friend and I promptly forgot all about it, until late last week when the calendar pages turned and we shared a flurry of “fuck, it’s this Sunday!” messages.

We’ve dabbled in taking the old gal to children’s theatre before and we’ve not seen a bad production yet. What The Ladybird Heard was a cracker, with a very small cast and teeny set design, but a surprisingly captivating performance. Stick Man followed suit, with all roles being acted by three charismatic dramatic types. I think the lady was girl crush potential but we were up too high for me to get a proper unabridged look.

I had a mild to moderate panic when my friend told me there was no interval, but actually that turned out to be a blessing as it meant we were all wrapped up within an hour and trotting back to the train station. Where our train was delayed for approximately 45 minutes and so we paced the platform eating jelly beans and discussing whether or not we needed a wee.

I only bollocked her a couple of times so I consider the outing a hearty success. Next stop – Room On The Broom.

    You always make me smile – sounds like a fun day! I also panic when there’s no interval to stock up on wine and crisps, just me?! Boo to the 45 min delay though but massive yay to jelly beans ☺️ Xx

      It was at 11am so wine might not have been appropriate ???? thanks for commenting lovely xx

    Ahhh lovely post and it sounds like you had a lovely time. I too would have panicked at the thought of no interval but sounds like it all worked out for the best!

    Oh you make me laugh so much – I love how I never know where you’re going to take me with your writing but you always make me laugh out loud by the end of it! Glad you had fun x

      That’s a mighty fine compliment to read, thank you Helen ???? I don’t always know where I’m going to end up with a post either, ha. X
