I wasn’t at home much today. I went for lunch with my Mum and my Grandma, and then went to the theatre with my Mum in the evening. I still wasn’t feeling amazing, so my vitamin c consumption shot through the roof.
We had lunch at the Mill in Gomshall. They do really nice food there. The only thing I didn’t particularly like was my starter, but I think that was my fault for not really thinking about what I chose. They were sweet peppers stuffed with cheese, I thought they would be warm, they were cold, they were sweet but also rather spicy, and served in a dish of oil. Really not for me. My main, butternut squash pasta, was lovely. And a pudding of crème brûlée can’t really go wrong.
The restaurant itself is pretty interesting, being set over the top of an actual mill. Where we sat we could watch the water rushing through.
We saw Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the theatre, starring none other than Jason Donovan! I didn’t know much about the musical (aside from the obvious) so there were lots of nice surprises. I thought it was all great fun, and very funny. Jason was just a bonus really.
You see, when I was five, I discovered a tape at my Grandma’s, called Ten Good Reasons. I (being 5) didn’t watch Neighbours so I’ve never understood the whole Kylie thing. With the exception of my Elton John obsession, I didn’t really have much taste at 5 either. Jason’s 80s pop was right up my little street and I must have listened to that tape a million times. How I didn’t drive my Grandma nuts I will never know. Anyway, I loved it, and I loved Jason.
Fast forward to now, and I hadn’t really thought that much about him. However, when presented with the opportunity to see him sing live, and in a dress no less, 26 year old me still jumped at the chance. He does have a lovely voice, and judging by the reaction of the audience I am not the only one who thought he was super cool back in the day.
The show was really good, recommended if you like a laugh. I finished my day with an episode of Peaky Blinders and a lot of sleep.
