I am blessed with some great people who contribute to this blog through their comments and I was stunned when I recieved a hand-written note after last night's production of Abigail's Party that turned out to be from my good friend Marian. I think of Marian as a super warm-hearted friend who hails originally from Yorkshire and currently lives in the South West of France an hour's drive away from Bordeaux. I had the pleasure of staying with her for a long weekend in France back in May this year. You couldn't ask for a better friend or a more generous woman.
Marian made the long journey across mainland Europe to the UK this week in special effort to see me in The Lace Market Theatre's production of Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party. I had no idea that she had planned this visit in secret and was astonished to see her in person in the theatre bar after Thursday's production, over a thousand miles away from her French home in the countryside in South West of France! What a wonderful person!
Thankyou so much Marian and enjoy the rest of your break in the UK with your other blogging friends and family. I am truly blessed to have you as a friend.
PS: Marian has written her own blog about her visit. See: http://cabinfevernow.blog.co.uk/2009/10/09/surprise-surprise-7133143/comment_ID/11184085/comment_level/1/#c11184085
