Today started with dead chickens, ended with a lost purse and included a pointless expensive long journey as well – but I’m determined to find some good in it too!

1. To have become a friendly face so quickly.

2. The play is, really, about eating and the good life. The cast eat ice cream, crisps, chips, more ice cream, eggs & soldiers, strawberries, yet more ice cream, more crisps, finger food and glass after glass of drink… Meanwhile, up on the back row, I have a surprisingly nice brownie at the interval: slightly crispy on the outside but suitably gooey in the middle.

3. A (cat) yawn held a beat too long makes it ten times cuter.
