SkyWatch Friday - The Birthday Date

Sunday was my birthday - in the try something new effort we're on at the moment - Tim bought me tickets to see Shakespeare at Stafford Castle.  I've never really got Shakespeare, to many Foresothes for my liking! But the setting, the weather, the yummy picnic, the strawberries and pink (fake) champagne persuaded me that this time would be worth the foresothing. 

The first half hour I had to keep asking what was going on, not being familiar with the storyline of the Merry Wives of Windsor, and I could have thought of better ways of spending my birthday.  But the actors were great (they were proper famous too!), the costumes (1950s) fantastic and the stage really well done, so I soon forgot about the foreign English and began to enjoy it!

As Dr Pepper says "try it you might like it". Visit Skywatch Friday to see something else you may like (better quality photos guaranteed - I forgot my camera so had to use my phone, shiny and new but no match to an SLR)

Sorry to sneak two things in one post - but it's my birthday week so there!


  1. Happy belated Birthday! I was going to say what fabulous photos - just goes to show there is so much to be said for clever composition. I particularly like the angle of the second one. Sounds like it turned out to be a lovely day and I particularly like the sound of the pink stuff to drink ;) x

  2. How nice to see and read about your happiness. May time and life continue to treat you all kind. Please have a nice Friday.

  4. Talent shows have become so famous almost everywhere now...
