It was of a high standard with four professional actors in the cast. Sam Cameron as Peter Pan absolutely shone. I can remember him from one Little Jo's Music Box acting class performances. There are some photos on the website above. You may recognise an actor from the tv show Doctor Blake. Captain Hook is a master of voice overs.
Little Jo went to the kids after party and we went back to Sister's for afternoon tea. Bone Doctor stayed on to help with the clean up as it was the final performance. Little Jo put a lot of effort into the show with a month or more of rehearsals and two one and a half hour performances a day for ten days. Sister and Bone Doctor were going to the adult after party later. Mother and ABI Brother left, we took the dog for a walk with Sister and eventually Bone Doctor and Little Jo returned. We gave her the Pokemon poster in appreciation of her work and she came home with us to stay for two nights. She is not a great sleeper normally, but she slept straight for twelve hours that night. She must have been exhausted. It was nearly seven before we got home, so we had pizza for dinner.
I had to work the next day and at her request, R took her to Scienceworks Museum. She loves going there. Lasagne for dinner. She wasn't so keen to do much the next day, so R just took her into town for lunch and some shopping and a visit to another favourite place of hers, Dymocks Bookshop. Sister, Bone Doctor and a friend returned from seeing tennis matches in the Australian Open for a barbeque. R is is his own worst enemy. Little Jo had made a cake for desert. I drove them to So Cross Station to catch the 8pm Waurn Ponds train home, ok, the Geelong train.
My immediate work superior is an attractive blonde female and a wearer of sensible shoes. She greeted me at work yesterday with, ah, did you have a sick day on whatever day? This is subtle pressure. She went on to say, I've been on two weeks holiday and just catching up on paperwork. You didn't present a certificate? I am just checking in case I missed it.
Well, they are under work pressure, perhaps more than I am. I actually quite like her and she is much nicer than my last superior. I politely asked if she went away for her holidays. Yes, camping with my partner in Bright. Today Sister, Bone Doctor and Little Jo are going camping. Guess where? Yep. Bright. I never noticed an overwhelming presence of lesbians in Bright when we were there eighteen months ago. Perhaps I missed something. It is a delightful town, but has become overwhelmed by the number of visitors.
Just to note, I never realised Mother will turn 84 in March this year. She did really well for two Christmas events and did really well to see Little Jo perform. Yes, there was plenty of help for her, but just that she made the effort was great. There is the Mother cat story to come.
A friend is terribly unwell in hospital and perhaps dying. Posts and comments may be irregular.
