A musical offering, in parts
March 15, 2003

I don't enjoy shopping. We spent the day traipsing around Harrods, Harvey Nicks and other shops in search of life's essentials.

We had a pre-theatre supper with Philip at Mezzonine, where marinaded chicken with hoi-sin sauce is called "sweet and sour". We then hobbled along to the Piccadilly Theatre to see "Ragtime". It was a slick and superb production, with singers who could act, the strong cast was led by Maria Friedman. The story is very PC - the lives of three families are intertwined in the America of the early twentieth century. The WASPs, East European Jews, and "people of colour" warbled for three hours to the inevitable triumph of right over wrong.

I may be supercillious, but it was an excellent evening. Faultless... well, in execution anyway.

This time, we returned to the Rockwell bar for late night cocktails.

There was only one place I actually enjoyed shopping in London, and that was at the plethora of Lush bath products stores. Maybe it's the smell.

Shopping in London isn't the same as the USA, but can be great if, like me, you like 200 year-old tie prints. But what's this about Lush? I heard they'd recently been threatened with expulsion from the Lion Yard shopping centre in Cambridge as they were generating such a malodorous (ooh I like that word) pong.
