The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

 & Symphony Hall in Birmingham


While in London, if you follow on Facebook, you may have seen my post that I had a front ticket to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. On a Tuesday amidst the week of the Royal Wedding, I was able to score front row smack in the center for ₤25. In my opinion a great bargain, the theatre was beautiful and got me prepped for my next leg of trip in France.  


While in Birmingham, I went to the Symphony Hall to see The Organ Symphony, which was also a great bargain to experience the acoustics of this hall for ₤9.50 for the 4th floor.

Also, I've mentioned before that my friend Kori at Blonde Episodes has her book released today on Amazon.com! I'm so honored that she mentioned me in her dedication!!! Murder on the Boulevard is available HERE.


Tomorrow, I leave for Paris and am very sad to leave my friend Sheila. This time with her as a last minute surprise has been very special. Today we saw Water for Elephants, a book I read last year for book club, and was so excited to see, and to share it with her was the icing the cake.

So now, I'm pulling out my French dictionary for the next month! Until we meet in Paris...

Au revoir!
