School Play

Last night we went to see the senior infants and the 6th class perform their plays. The senior infants went first and they were ADORABLE, jeez they are cute at that age! They did a little story on a village - the Lazy Daisy Village and littering, it was too cute with a little 'litter muncher' who went munch munch...I think I smiled throughout the performance.
After that the 6th class put on a sterling performance of Joseph and his Technicolour Dreamcoat which was better than the show that Kirstin did during her extra mural...expensive drama lessons...will definitely not be sending her back there!I sat and watched young ladies on the stage and wondered where on earth all those years have gone, all those tall, grown girls on the stage and mine is one of them! There certainly are many benefits to the girls being older, like being able to go on hockey tours...or to watch Def leppard knowing they can be left in the hotel room..but when they were little and I could not do any of those things I certainly did not mind!

Anyway...after the play Tracy and Warren were taking their 2 girls - cute little girls to Eddie Rocket's and Skyla begged us to join them. Malcolm was playing cricket and then watching the soccer, I had already eaten at home, but the kids hadn't - sly move on their part me thinks... so I thought, why not! I am glad we went, the girls enjoyed it, they all sat at a table together and I got to be the third wheel with Tracy and Warren, a good third wheel though...a tricycle! We sat there long after we had eaten having great craic and then realised the kids still had school, it was 21h30, the sun was still shining, oh how I love the Irish summer...lots of rain but so many daylight hours!

Only problem with those late sunsets - when I was in England, I felt guilty having a glass of wine at 9 in the evening, cause the sun was still shining and it felt like mid-day!!

You should NEVER feel guilty for partaking in wine...it is after all only grape juice ;)
