Today I got the new chain saw set up and this afternoon launched myself against the ailing tree at the bottom of the back garden and by teatime had both felled it all, chopped it up and disposed of the remains. Now I'm aching everywhere, felling trees is not my normal comfort zone and my back is fragile to say the least. There are so many things to worry about at the moment that there is always going to be people worse off, we'll certainly be keeping a eye out for our yet older neighbours.
We had a great night out yesterday at WNO at Llandudno, the restaurant has a great look out over the prom and although the food was patchy is was a pleasant early evening relaxing start to a quite lengthy opera, Verdi Sicilian Vespers. I think it could be a bit tighter the great moments are between fallow periods. One of the leads was a Clonter opera prize winner a few years back. Its good to see that those you've supported are going on to great success. My only gripe returning to grand opera after college productions is that the constant applause for every utterance is really irritating and the set was uninspiring . Needless to say they all get killed at the end, or did they , the wine and time had taken their toll by then. Wonderful theatre staff and marvelous wheelchair access.
Fingers crossed we can get some filming done Monday and Tuesday this week plus en route to Hampshire on Friday. Aiming at trucks one day and buses the next. I'll study the weather forecaste at bedtime and see how the latest pans out. Meanwhile bus shots from Huddersfield last week.
