Skating into new year after Crimbo limbo

More news, no ads


So Crimbo limbo is over and I now know what day of the week it is. Even though I like Betwixtmas I have to keep an eye on my diary so I am aware what I should be doing and where I have to be.

It has been a big bubble of Christmassy-mas and now the hard cold reality of the New Year is upon us all.

So many resolutions to break, well it’s only been a year that my new pair of roller skates were purchased from my last resolution.

They need to be dusted off and moved from under the piano where they could cause someone an injury and put on eBay.

What a waste but at least no broken hips.

I am hoping that within reason, even with restrictions I will be able to see a lot more live performances this year.

It will be great to support live theatre at Alive Corn Exchange, St George’s Guildhall and Westacre Theatre.

The live theatre performances being screened look interesting with Shakespeare’s plays starring some well known names.

The successful run of My First Panto in the Workshop, Lynn should encourage youngsters to see live theatre and experience being in an audience.

Since seeing the James Bond film No Time to Die at the Majestic, which I would like to see again as I thought it was really outstanding, and the popcorn was pretty good too, I have become more interested in going to the flicks.

I suppose I am getting a little old but the sound can be so loud at the cinema that I am not sure I could sit through three hours at those decibel levels.

That was just the trailers though and it seemed a bit quieter when the film came on.

Then of course there are the other people there, I think I prefer to be in a dark room on my own rather than with strangers.

However odd that may sound.

I also hope to do a lot more reading. I really need another eye test.

My eyesight seems to have deteriorated. Particularly when I went into Savers in Lynn for an eye appointment as I got it muddled up with SpecSavers.

But I instead picked up some cheap bubble bath and bubble wrap envelopes (what is it with bubbles?).

I know for a fact that I have a couple of friends who will be counting down now until next Christmas.

Usually from about Boxing Day the chalk board goes up with the number of days to go.

Even I think that might be a little premature. We’ve got Spring, Summer and Autumn to get through yet.

When the time is right I will be counting down and saying: It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
