The Phantom of the Opera and Home made Custard!

It’s been a busy weekend!

As the title suggests David and I went to a packed Liverpool Empire to see a new production of The Phantom of the Opera. I have seen the musical twice before and wanted to share this with David. I think he was impressed with the stage design.

On Friday I was invited to Gary (David’s twin brother) and his wife Bilgen’s English wedding celebratory party. The evening went fast enough, but I realised I have nothing in common with anyone! 😦 I came home with balloons and white roses which dressed the tables. It was such a shame to waste them!

Sunday, and I was determined to make a nice rhubarb pie, (after last weeks tart didn’t go to plan). I also decided to make alongside the pie, home made custard with milk, eggs and a very expensive vanilla pod! The result was lovely! 🙂 I will definitely make it again! 🙂

The day before, after coming home from the Empire I made ‘slow roasted salmon with red wine barley‘ though it wasn’t as tasty as I had hoped it would be, but we have to try these things to see if we like them!

News on the wild bird front: Yes I am still feeding them! The Chiffchaff was spotted in the tree Sunday afternoon, though the Pigeons and Goldfinches chased him away!

It is David and My, seventh year anniversary tomorrow (Monday), I can’t believe how quickly time has past! It seems only like yesterday when he was picking me up from my street corner in a blizzard to see a particularly bad Jake Gyllenhaal film in 2006!

Ohh exciting times ahead…

Today my tickets for Mahler’s 10th arrived! I am so excited about that… perhaps listening to it will be life changing?

I was looking at my diary and David and I, though we don’t have a holiday booked, do have lots of things to look forward too at the local theatres in Liverpool the first half of 2013!

On the 14th February I am ‘dragging’ David to the Liverpool Philharmonic to hear their Valentine’s concert. Then we are back there on the 23rd of March for Mahler and then in June again to listen to Stravinsky’s Firebird!

In March I have booked to see The Phantom of the Opera at the Liverpool Empire and in May, I am going to the Echo Arena to see Walking with Dinosaurs which I saw in 2009! I look forward to that! I loved it the last time!
