A nice night at the theatre was had yesterday - we went to see Gervais Phinn at DeMontford in Leics - he is an ex teacher/examiner/school inspector and now writes and lectures with anecdotes about the people and students he has met along the way. Very amusing, I didn't find it quite as funny as some that seemed to be crying with laughter, but he was amusing. We actually thought we had turned up at the wrong show, 5 late 20-early 30's girlies in a theatre where the average age was, well, about 50.....maybe higher.....and the running commentary from 2 rows back was delightful - not!!!!
Anyhow, he reeled off a couple of poems, here is one I have found so far, called 'Anyway' by Mother Theresa:

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered;Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough;Give the world the best you've
got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God;It was never between you and them anyway.

Isn't that beautiful ?

Late night tonight, gonna wait up for the teRaa's to get here. 3 days off work, a curry, a trip to Warwick castle to see some real knights (one little 4 year old will be jigging with awe me thinks!!!!) await us and also, hopefully, a start on clearing my loft of 30 plus years of toys and memories. Managed to entice my Blyth obsessed sister into a night of sifting through boxes with the lure of many many boxes of Sindy accessories. How sad, all of our childhood belongings are now classed as old will we feel digging through that lot !!!!! Be prepared for her to show lots of various Blythe poses.....Blythe on a horse, Blythe in the salon, Blythe in her jeep, Blythe on a camping trip........I am sure the list will be endless, apologies in advance !!

Grandad is poorly at the moment, a couple of days in the hospital now looks like it may turn to a couple of weeks unfortunately. He has some plants that he bought just before got ill, still in pots so think I may go and do my Percy Thrower impersonation tomorrow to cheer him up when he comes home :o)

night y'all
