Operation Oysterhood: 16 October

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

My friend Debbie and I at the Baxter: the opening night of The Outlaw Muckridge. It was simply wonderful to be in a theatre again, part of an audience, immersed in a live performance of the best kind. I might have had one shot of tequila too many afterwards to write coherently about the night (or the day), so here are a few photographs:

What else? I got a few (brief, masked) hugs tonight – my first hugs (apart form my love’s) since the beginning of lockdown. HUGS!

I go to bed a happy woman, tipsy on theatre, tequila and hugs. Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.

Operation Oysterhood: 6 October

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

The show must go on! It’s time for theatre again as the Baxter reopens its doors – with care (small, physically distanced, audiences) – to theatre lovers. I can’t wait! And when one is gallivanting with an outlaw, a mask is a must, so it should all feel ‘in character’, as they say.

I am going to the theatre! It sounds unbelievable, and yet it is true. That’s the magic of it all.

Today, after some admin and an early manuscript meeting on a beach (almost), I spent the day catsitting one of my love’s cats who had spent a few days at the vet’s and needed some furry love after the ordeal. While she made herself at home again, I continued with my work until it was time for dinner (I cooked fish for her and for my love – not sure who liked it more).

Then home to my own Furry Ones (with fish leftovers, of course!) and a Skype call with Mom and Krystian and some more admin, and now, I am falling over and heading in the direction of Morpheus’s arms.

Good night.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
