Three good things today:
1. L and I enjoyed a really good performance at the National Theatre. We watched ‘Her Naked Skin’, a play about women in the suffragette movement who face different challenges and strife as they strive for equality. The performances were first rate. In the interval a man got upset with another man and I heard him say something along the lines of: ‘You’re trying to be helpful but you’re in the way’. Well done old chap for not swearing about it!
2. I enjoyed lunch with different people from different organisations in the basement restaurant in the building where my office is based. I regularly get to lunch with lots of interesting people who are doing great centrally managed work on behalf of my Quaker Yearly Meeting. Some but not all are Quakers. Keep up the good work folks!
3. I met L for dinner tonight. We ate in one of the restaurants at the National Theatre and soon got our day’s works out of our systems and had some good quality time together. We watched a play together, then sat while most people filed out and we talked about what we had seen and how it had affected us. As the auditorium cleared, we also left. I saw a man outside reading a newspaper. We walked to the station and caught the train home together. A man opposite me took the free paper in front of me. I warned him that the news was the same as last week – some people went to a club, some played some sport and the economy is up the creek. The man was sweet and said goodnight when we got off the train. Now L is making us hot drinks.
