We have mostly been...
Enjoying - a theatre show at the Rondo Theatre in Bath on Friday night. It was called 'Elizabeth I: Virgin on the Ridiculous' and was a great comedy romp through Elizabeth's life by Living Spit Theatre Company, one group who are well worth seeing if you get the chance. We even got given front row seats so I could prop my leg up and most of the front row audience seemed dead impressed that I'd come fully prepared!
Smiling - after the show when the two actors (Howard Coggins and Stu McLoughlin) plus Tristan Sturrock (of Theatre Damfino, Kneehigh and Bristol Old Vic fame) stopped me on the way out and asked what on earth I'd done. We then had a little bit of a mini chat which ended with them commiserating on what a stupid way it was to break an ankle and wishing me all the best for the future. I smiled all the way home!
Watching - the entries at Taunton Carnival on Saturday night. The clock is ticking now down to the big one on 1st November in Bridgwater...
Staying - at a Travelodge overnight in Taunton so we could have a day out at the West Somerset Railway on Sunday. We were given a wheelchair-friendly accessible room complete with a fabulous wet room, perfect for having a decent shower and not getting my plaster cast wet.
Travelling - on the trains at the West Somerset Railway. We used some Tesco Clubcard vouchers and took a trip from Bishops Lydeard to Minehead and back again. The staff were great, helping load me and the wheelchair into the guards van and then I hopped along to a comfy seat for the rest of the journey.
Discovering - a brilliant little vintage shop and tea rooms in Minehead high street - Sally's Vintage Chic. We stopped off for tea and cake and were very impressed with the service, chattiness and my amazing hot chocolate!
What did you get up to at the weekend?
