What a lovely weekend! I have at last recovered from my jetlag- it is so much fun waking up at 3 am and making porridge, because I was sooo hungry!

On Friday my son posted this clip on Youtube that he had made for Red Nose Day.
It's very funny and hope that he can get a few more likes and shares?

Friday evening we went to a St Patricks Day event at our local Theatre, The Manifest Theatre Group in Manningtree, which I have written about Here
This was a bit different to the normal sort of plays which they put on.  Firstly some dancers from The Debbie Millar School of Dance performed an Irish Dance -  I love a bit of tap!
This was followed by Guy Singleton singing some Irish Ballard's with his guitar.
During the interval they served Barmbrack and Irish Scones and then the one act play:
The Donahue Sisters -  a very funny and yet quite creepy in places.  Three sisters meet up and talk about their lives and then do a ritual enactment of violent incident from their childhood - much better than watching telly!!

Saturday evening was party night, one of my old ( in time and age!!) celebrated her 50th birthday.  A party held at the local village hall took me back a few years, even the music came from the late 70's and 80's when we used to go there for discos as teenagers!!  It was good to catch up with friends, have a little dance and a couple of glasses of Prosecco (it was bring your own drinks!)

This morning was spent at the allotment, very cold, but ok to have a bit of a dig and pick some veges.  Came home with sprouting bbroccoli, cabbages, potatoes and leeks.  Spent the afternoon turning these into leek and potatoe soup.  Also made some vege rissoles and a quiche -  all stocked up for the week ahead.
Forgot to take any photos all weekend, so thought that I would just pop a lovely summer allotment picture in!
