Cats versus Birds

So on the day we were expecting the first visit from Mom and Pops to the Gordon’s Bay Lotter stronghold in absolute ages, guess what happened? Well, as I should have known, I strolled past the bathroom in the morning,… Continue Reading →

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats… at the Artscape

And having already seen Phantom and the Opera when it was brought to the Artscape a couple of years ago, it was no surprise to find myself being dragged through to Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats last Thursday evening in the company of my dearest wife and the rest of the Montgomery horde! :P
