We went to see "Whipping It Up" starring Richard Wilson (Victor Meldrew) at the Lowry this week. It was ok - a bit boring in parts - but it was good to see him in real life and also the man who played Nick his neighbour in One Foot in the Grave. I couldn't understand why the theatre was about a third empty though. Then after the interval lots of new people arrived - they'd been in coaches that had been held up because of an accident on the motorway - what a shame. They only saw 45 minutes of the play but I didn't hear anyone complaining - "It's just one of those things," said one elderly man. How refreshing to come across that sort of attitude instead of the compensation-culture we've grown used to.

The Lowry

Before the play we had a lovely meal in Lime, one of the bars at the Lowry Centre. It was beautifully presented and hot and tasty - my three main markers when it comes to a decent meal.
