The chances of anything coming from Mars,are a million to one, he said....

....The chances of anythiiiing coming from Mars, are a million to wuuuun- but still they cummmm....dah dah da...dah dah daaaaa.

Totally off topic really, but last night jolly good old BBC radio 2 played a live recording of Jeff Wayne's The War of the Worlds.

I went to bed at 10.15 pm (horifically early for me, particularly as i don't need more than 6 and a half hours sleep- i was awake again and raring to go by 5.00), put on me headphones, lay in the dark and gave myself up totally to it.

What a treat.

I really wanted to take Darling Daughter to see the show at the Birmingham NIA, but the tickets were £50 a piece (i think the show must be worth paying that amount of money for though), - alas, way beyond Sprouty's means, if we wanted to eat for the rest of the month.

Darling Daughter loves the music though, and her dad bought her the CD many moons ago. She plays it a lot. I bought her the original book by HG Wells for Christmas, and, seven months on, she is still only on page 27. The book is only 142 pages long.

She doesn't like reading very much- which is something you tend to keep quiet about in this house...
I am absolutely determined to get to a show next year though. Best start saving now.

On a quick note, Shakespeare is almost ready to be let loose on an unsuspecting world.
Sy wants me to have a look first (he always does)- just to clarify that the whole thing makes sense.
As he always says;
'If you can make sense of it Sprouty, then anyone can.'
Thanks a lot- i think.

Till next time,
Shakespeare's Housekeeper x


  1. He really knows how to pay a graceful compliment! Maybe you should clobber him with the book ....

  2. Hey....if "Sprouty" can make sense of it, it must be extremely profound, sufficiently so to capture her imagination and be utterly interesting.


Your words are every bit as important as Mr Shakespeares.
Put some of them together, and leave me a comment...but don't worry if it takes me a few days to get round to reading them- i have nine jobs and a writer who needs me!
