Memories are made of this

What’s better than birthday cake? Nutcracker birthday cakes. In ‘summer’. I use the term summer lightly given that I don’t trust the fact we’ve had two nice days in a row (also it was good weather for my birthday party and we sat in the garden which was true weather witchcraft).

The other night I went to see Sylvie Guillem in 6000 miles away a programme of three pieces: Kylian, Forsythe and Eks. I enjoyed the Kylian, was utterly nonplussed by the Forsythe and fell head over heels for Eks’ ‘bye’. The latter was a sole piece for Guillem who is magnificent and the whole thing blew me away into serious, serious ~feels. And it hurt my ovaries a little to think I’d never get to see Guillem dance a real dramatic classical role live.

But yesterday featured plenty of cake and cocktails to help me get over that a little…

    I ‘almost’ saw Guillem at Covent Garden & I still remember that sinking feeling when it was announced she was injured/sick!

  2. Just letting you know that I listed your blog in my Liebster Award post. I totally understand if you don’t feel like doing it, too, but I thought I’d share the love 😀
