In fact there has been a lot of things I've wanted to share with you guys projects I've been involved with, swaps, creative stuff as well as life stuff like shows I've seen and exhibitions I've attended. So, hop on board and buckle up and we'll go for a ride through my life........... well not quite but you know what I mean I'm sure:-)As this would be an absurdly lengthy post if I were to fit in all that I've seen and done since my absence, I think it more fitting to back track a little and start with some of the shows I've seen.

Last month my daughter Meena and I went to see "Hairspray" the Musical on stage at The Shaftsbury Theatre, Holborn. I was familiar with the story since I'd seen the John Travolta film - which I loved and became familiar with the songs too, which were so unbelievably catchy (that I find myself still singing and humming them!). I haven’t seen the original film starring Rikki Lake – must get round to that!
I would really recommend this show if you’re feeling kinda low or want to have a good night out with the girls – it really is a feel good production and I defy anyone not to come out of there uplifted and happy:-)
We enjoyed the show immensely (as you can tell:-)) and I’d go back to watch it again given half the chance. As it is, I continually to catch the film on TV and have to watch it each time. I will be buying the soundtrack on CD and the film on DVD. But for those of you unfamiliar with any of the songs you can catch them on YouTube.
