A grand day out

Thanks so much for all your comments on my long, rambling post about the hospital visit. I am almost 100 per cent again now, though still a bit appetite-suppressed: always hungry, but not really wanting to eat anything much.

Thursday, in celebration of our 10th wedding anniversary, the wife and I went to the theatre to see Othello at The Globe, as previously mentioned in this post. Pictures will follow.

The theatre itself was magnificent and the play was great, with a really gripping, compelling last act, and the performances were solid all round. Afterwards we met the man in the title role, Mr Eamonn Walker himself, had a chat with him in the bar for a good five minutes, possibly ten, talking about his film choices, locations he's worked in, and things like that. He then humoured us with some photos and an autograph. A real gent of a man.

A great day was had by all.

There's a critic who argues Othello is basically a gay love story, but I dunno. Desdemona is a pretty weak character but Iago's hatred is more akin to that of a stalker than a lover...

Glad you're on the mend.
