Not wanting to miss the immersive experience of Shakespeare performed in the space for which it was written, I dragged my friend Sue along, she has never…

Wanderlust…

No, it’s not mine, but perhaps it should be? My eldest daughter came home recently with her first tattoo, it’s not an issue, I have a few and so does my other daughter. She is 26, it’s her body, her wallet, her problem 🙂 …..but I do like it and it sums her up well,…
