Tuesday – No, I didn’t watch Cinderella for the first time… it’s the name of the ballet piece I watched on March 31st, Sunday, at Peacock Theatre, London.
It was lovely! I went with two friends of mine and their daughters, aged 4 years old… plus a friend of one of them and her daughter aged 6… I said “I feel misplaced… I think I should have rented a child to come here…” Around me, only parents and their children! That was sweet! Nice energy and it was so good to remember my time with my parents, grandmother and brothers, when I was a young girl going to ballet!
It was so funny, with my friend’s daughter. We always play together and laugh a lot! At a certain point, she asked me if I’d be able to go to her birthday party. I answered “I’d like to”. And she said “you can ask your mother to allow you to come!” I had to tell my friend “look, I now know it’s true what people say about me. I AM A CHILD. Your daughter sees me as equal! That I have to ask permission to my mother to do things!”
That was so funny! On the train back to Bewdley a tall guy with an even bigger dog, if that’s possible, asked me if I was going to visit my mother. Out of the blues! So, I guess my mother wanted to send me a message, two episodes mentioning her…

It worked its magic, children loved it, adults too – I suppose – and I totally recommend it – even if you don’t have children!
Hope you have a great day, full of smiles and magic!
