The Mystery of Edwin Droooooooduh

On Thursday night I was able to join my husband at the theatre for a rousing murder mystery! Vertigo Theatre in Calgary is currently presenting the "Mystery of Edwin Drood", Dickens' last work, which he passed away in the middle of writing. As no notes have been found, it truly is a mystery. What happens to young Edwin? Who perpetrates the crime? Who gets the happy ending?

Truly enjoyable and I recommend it to anyone who has the opportunity to take it in. Kudos, Congratulations and Great Job all round to the entire cast (18 in all!!!) and crew, but especially to Mr. Bellamy, Mr. McKeag and Ms. Holt (who is capable of anything in my book!)

And thank you to my mother- and father-in-law who came to look after the boys so that I could have an evening out with my sweetie. When your youngest won't take a bottle and isn't sleeping through the night yet, the date nights are few and far between!

Good for you for taking a date night!!! It's so hard sometimes to work that in!

Ahhh... date night. How I miss you. We don't get out all that often, but when we do, it's so nice. I'm glad you had such a nice time.

Thanks for visiting my blog the other day. :)

A date night! Lucky girl. Glad you had fun.

The self-help post was interesting. I don't own any nor do I look to "experts" for help. I have a hard time with psychologists, even, as they always have a label and a diagnosis. - My eldest son is, as I have ALWAYS said, high maintenance, but now has a fun diagnosis he can attach to the end of his name. Does it make any difference in his life or how we parent him? No. This is especially hard as I have a Mother in law (and her long-time beau) that are both college psychology professors. Yeah. Lots of good conversations there...
