Well life is full of surprises. I expected today to be a very ordinary day. I wanted a new camera bag. Easy. Anna had booked lunch at The Rogano (which is reputed to be one of Glasgow's premier restaurants). This evening Anna had booked seats at The Citizens Theatre (with no apostrophe!) to see A Day in the Death of Joe Egg.
However when I looked at my cellphone this morning I saw a text asking what I was doing today. I duly supplied the information requested pondering as to why a friend from France would make such an enquiry. The response was a 'querie as to whether I would like to meet for coffee this afternoon. Gosh.
So I spent this afternoon in the company of Viv who was in Scotland for a few days - a decision taken on a spur of the moment whim as she was in the UK for a few weeks visiting family.
The acting in the play this evening was serious and light and funny all at the same time. Quite an accomplishment when dealing with such a subject and dialogue.
So today I am thankful for wonderful surprises and enjoyable nights out.
