Shakespeare With The Handlebards

Last Friday I saw my first ( and sadly probably only) outdoor theatre of the summer.

Shakespeare’s As You Like It performed by brilliant company – The Handlebards.

The Handlebards started their journey in 2013 and are currently two troupes of cycling actors who carry all of the necessary set, props and costume to perform Shakespeare plays around the world.

On beautiful Pashely bicycles.

Sheringham to Cromer on Foot.

Yesterday I finished work at 1pm and had “nothing to do.”

The weather was stunning so I decided to walk the 5(ish) miles along the coast from Sheringham to Cromer.  It’s something I have been thinking about doing for a while – but as it says above, “travel procrastinator.” I should change that to “adventure and travel procrastinator” now, as I am always having ideas but no way to actually do them.

Sure this was a micro adventure- but it was an adventure none the less.

Before I left I did my checks!

Make a cup of tea- check!

Change into walking boots-check!

Check with local RNLI Crewmember if I was going to get cut off by the tide and down-

No?

Nope?

I was all good to go!

( I do work with the RNLI guy so when we changed over at work he was the one to ask- he has an app for tides and everything!)

Grand Canyon South Rim Tour 

As soon as we started talking about our trip to Las Vegas we all agreed there was no way we were not visiting the Grand Canyon. There were so many tour options out there, ranging through all sorts of prices, with helicopter rides, raft rides, MULE rides and bright pink hummers.

After much discussion and many a google, we went with the Platinum South Rim Tour of The Grand Canyon – booked through Papillon Tours but in the end the actual tour operator was Gray Line. Our tour came in at £140 but as you can see through the links above, it pays to shop about as the same tour can cost a lot less on different sites. (Especially if you were on a tight budget like I was)

“Wild” Swimming, Patagonia & Theatre Cats!

June was quite the busy month!

I was working full on at both theatres, with two changes of  production too!

At the end of June Breakfast at Tiffany’s arrived after a national tour, starring Pixie Lott. We are its home for the next 12 weeks and it’s all looking rather good. I should hopefully be watching next week so keep an eye out for a review! And keep an eye out on my instagram, as there is a cat in the show and I am determined to meet him!

A Few Nights In Norfolk.

It’s been a quiet few weeks on the blog front. I had to put my blogging on hold to work on a project and now that’s all done and done I can get back to writing about my totally exciting London life.

Except (hopefully) it is going to get a little more exciting over the summer. I have a few workshops and events booked in, as well as the Star Trek Beyond premiere and quite a few theatre trips.

It’s looking up!

I found myself with a few days off from both jobs this weekend and so decided to head for the countryside.

Double Monday Look Back 

Afternoon!

A two week look back this week – as I have no idea what I did last Monday, but blogging clearly wasn’t one of them :-/

Last weekend the ladies and I went on a flying visit to Hamburg to support our friend Nancy in her first marathon. We had kept this plan secret for months and aimed to surprise her at the airport as our flight landed before hers.

We failed. She somehow managed to slip past us at arrivals and got halfway to Hamburg city centre before we messaged her and she came back to get us!

Either way she was surprised and very happy that we were there. We looked after her and dropped her off at the start of the marathon before exploring a bit of Hamburg.

A (Wait. It’s not Monday?)Look Back Week 19.

(Apparently it’s not Monday? Having a week off and then the Monday on top of it threw me completely! Yesterday really felt like Sunday.)

I spent most of last week in Norfolk, spending time with  family and friends. I was even lucky enough to get a blogging assignment whilst I was there from the lovely guys at Theatrebloggers.co.uk


Spent the day in Cromer on the Tuesday with my Mum. I took her out to lunch for an early Mother’s Day present, as I am never home for the big days. I had a hair cut and then we hit the charity shops. I got a couple of tops, including one that would have originally been round the £70-80 from Orvis, the shop near work that I look in every time I pass by.
