Bellowhead at the Parr Hall

Bellowhead -
utterly bonkers - amazing music - fantastic atmosphere -
 singing, dancing and lots and lots of bouncing!
Standing gigs are always so much more fun than seated ones -
and there was a great mix of older and new songs-
including new favourite "Let Union Be"
  We may be tired - overworked and stressed -
but a good bounce to New York Girls can solve a whole host of problems
{or at least it can squash them for a while!}

Other great nights with Bellowhead

Death of a Salesman

A day trip to Stratford for our third Miller within 12 months
{we saw The Crucible at the Old Vic last July
and recently we saw  the Young Vic's View from a Bridge via NT Live}
The weather was beautiful for the drive down -
 after a quick trip into Waterstones and a chippy lunch
we took some photos in the sun at Bancroft Gardens.

We were trying out a new plan -
don't leave Ben at home -
instead take him with us and let him sit in the cafe -
logged into the wifi with plenty of food -
while we watch the play.
It worked brilliantly!
He even decided that he would like to walk the couple of hundred yards
to the McDonalds to buy himself a McFlurry!
So - Ben was happy -
and we were blown away by yet another amazing Miller production -
Anthony Sher and Harriett Walter - perfection.

On the train from Llandudno....

Gma andGpa have gone to the caravan for a few days
{Ffestiniog related trip}

They've not stayed there before - 
so Ben and I went out with them to make sure they knew how everything works.

We had lunch at the RSPB reserve, 
before we left them there and caught the train/bus combo home.

Back to Wales

For a lovely day trip with Katharine, Jonathan, Karen, Gma and Gpa

The sun was still shining - but the wind was COLD!

Still - Katharine (Named Shrimp by Ben) and Ben (named Giant by Katharine)
enjoyed their time together.
