Four happy days bring in another moon;
But O methinks, how slow the old moon wanes,
Like a step-dame or a dowager, doddering with her canes.
Four days will quickly steep themselves in night;
Four nights will quickly, like dreams, take flight,
And then the new moon, like a silver bow bent on high
Shall behold the night of our solemnities draw nigh.
OK we've not gone all Kultcharall. No not really...... well sort of I suppose. Chris and I went to the Grosvenor Park open air theatre (http://www.grosvenorparkopenairtheatre.co.uk) last night to see a performance of Shakespeare's Mid Summers Night Dream. The theatre is in the grounds of the lovely Grosvenor Park in Chester and is modelled on a small Roman amphitheatre complete with overhead canopies.

ending with a Morris dance like none other that had the audience in hysterics whilst clapping in time to the music. A great night in all and well worth seeing if you can. If you are ever in Chester next year whilst the theatre is running you must put it on your to do list, I assure you you will enjoy the performance greatly.
