At Tatton Hall With Katharine

A lovely, sunny spring day at Tatton Hall -
 
having lunch, riding on the carousel, exploring the playground and visiting the farm.

To me.... to you....

Oh - Benjamin does love the Chuckle Brothers.
 
I think there's something very autism friendly about
 the repetitiveness of their routines, the catch phrases etc.
 
So when Uncle Chris kindly offered to take us to see the live show at the Brindley in Runcorn, Ben was delighted.
 
He really enjoyed the show - joined in with all the catch phrases - answered back etc
 
And afterwards he was delighted to meet the Paul and Barrie for autographs and a photo.

Elbow at the Echo - Three Days Like This



Oh - I booked for the fabulous Elbow in huge expectation -
but as the date drew near I was in a state of "gig anxiety"
 
 
 
Leaving Megan and Jamie in charge of Benjamin
{first night with no official babysitter!}
we got the the venue at 6pm
and joined the queue for the standing area.
 
It worth the early start - we got a better position even than in Manchester -
right at the end of the runway.
 
The end result was that a gig attended by 12,000 people felt intimate.
 
The Night Will Always Win reduced us to tears,
Grounds for Divorce was musical exctasy
and One Day filled us {yet again} to overflowing with love.
 
Did it match up to the the last two gigs?
Perhaps there wasn't quite the same connection with the crowd as in Manchester -
but for us at the front it was everything we could have hoped for and more.
 
Afterwards we met Kathie and Iain for a chat
which rounded off another gerat evening perfectly.
