Funny - but true.
The Queen & Duke of E are coming to Scarborough tomorrow to officially re-open the refurbished open air theatre, seats nearly 7,000. I had 2 front row tickets given and we were both going to go. However, I have a choir to accompany in concert tomorrow afternoon, so I decided to spend my morning practising.
So, we rang a couple who have been close friends for many years. She had already got a ticket with a friend but hubby didn't have one and was delighted when I gave him mine, he picked it up from me last night, and arranged to meet Mrs O inside.
He only rang me this evening to say that he folded it and put it in his back trouser pocket. This morning his wife washed the trousers without spotting the ticket, so all he has now are a few pieces of papier-mache! He said "what can I do"? I said well the story is so unbelievable that I'm sure they will let you in, if not, you'll have to stand in the road and wave. Watch this space.
Look forward to hearing what happened!!!

Having moved universities I now have a new office. It's a bit darker today than it's been on the other days since I started here, and I can't find where the light switch is.
Oops.... Did you find it?
