Guys & Dolls

Yesterday I headed into the city, to the Capitol, a lovely old theatre that languished run-down and forgotten for many years and was restored some years back.
I met a group of friends to catch the 1.05 train, they must h ave all been pretty keen 'cos I was the last to arrrive at 12.55pm.
I had spent some time playing dress-ups and was most pleased with my full length purple satin (ex-bridesmaid) skirt, tangerine twin set and turquoise heart choker. A scarf my Dad had given to (his MIL) my Nanna was a nice little ssentimental touch tied on my handbag.
The walk from station to theatre was fast, they surely were in a hurry, this lot.
We arrived with about 20 minutes to spare and I took off on a hunger busting mission with my sister 'Na. We found some rather delectable quiche florentine & salad and talking was banned as we stuffed our famished faces. The accompanying Coke and ginger beer were smuggled back for in-show refreshment.

The show was great, some of Australia's biggest show-biz names took starring roles, there were some funny moments, some fabbo music and some exciting dance routines.

A coffee at intermission had to be slurped down hurriedly after too much dilly-dallying round the souvenir trap and a quick trip to the littlest room.

Then back to the theatre for the sexy bit and the happy ending.

When I got home I had a call from a cousin I haven't spoken to in a long time. She's mad as a two bob watch but talking to her feels, in a sense, like coming home.

Minestrone by moi and herb muffins by my gorgeous girls topped off a lovely day!
