Mrs Warren's Profession

Another grim journey to and from London again today. I hear they're cutting the number of trains to improve the service. Idiots. It was a mild afternoon and the air was crystal clear, suffused with a pale January light. The rising moon hovered in the sky as I walked from Buckingham Palace Road to St. Martin's Lane. Oh London, our London!

I up for coffee with a guy from out with whom I've been chatting for a little while. A super guy with a sense of humour and poise in thinking.

Then on to Covent Garden and meeting with Howard - one of my longest-standing friends. We've known one another for 26 years. It was pleasant to catch up with him - we only manage to do so once or twice a year. We had a quick but pleasant meal at Livebait and then saw Mrs Warren's Profession at the Strand Theatre. Brenda Blethyn was in the title role of this rather histrionic and uninspiring production by Peter Hall. Rather too melodramatic and unsubtle for my taste. Anyway, it was a good evening out overall.

Howard, renovate your flat this year. I know you're reading this.
