Our house is like a building site! We have electricians starting the re-wiring of the house and while I was monitoring this, I came across this magazine which I love and have found some really great articles, here’s a few:

I came across these video’s by WongFu Productions on YouTube a while ago, but I saw another one on YouTube today and it got me hooked on watching all of them again. In the area of relationships how many times do we miss out because we don’t get the courage to say something:
and how strange is it that someone who wasn’t in your world could become your whole world then become a memory:
They have really good short films, mainly to do with relationships, that are really reminiscent of everyday life. Check it out.
Good thing of the day: It’s nice to know you’re not alone.
A lovely long time friends birthday celebration took us to the Soho theatre to watch a play called God’s Property.
It was a story set in 1982 about two mixed race brothers are re-united in Deptford, South London.
“Sixteen year old, Onochie rules the family roost. His barely known older brother Chima returns home to find that Onochie is a skinhead who chooses to no longer be black.
Chima is not welcome in the area and only has a few hours to meaningfully connect with his brother. But outside a hostile community has been alerted to his return. Chima has been blamed for the death of a white girl and the vitriolic community won’t be satisfied until it delivers its own rough justice.
Onochie faces the tough decision of siding with the community he has tried to belong to, or standing with the brother he doesn’t know.”
This play, with its cast of only 4 carried was carried off perfectly and the qualms I had at the beginning when I saw a single set, disappeared as I was drawn into the story. It wasn’t long, but it turned out to be really funny and with a great twist – I just wished it had continued.
I really want to go to the theatre more often, need some more culture in my life!
Good thing of the day: Great night out out.
