I have always enjoyed pantos ( oh yes i have ) maybe because of the feeling that all is well with the world and your worries are forgotten about . I had a few mishaps with my tickets as i was gobsmacked to see had booked the tickets for the scouse of the raising sun back in August !! as i had heard on the grapevine how popular the pantos at the Royal court liverpool were , they are advertised as adult which they truly are with the odd f c s words thrown in does not bother me but know people who do not like the use of such words but really when things go wrong do u really say “oh flippertygibberty” OH NO U DONT ANY HOW i digress !!!
I had originally booked tickets for the beginning of December , after clearing it with my mate she was free “oh yes she enthused only to tell me not long after that she had forgotten going on holiday to balmy Blackpool how u can forget is beyond me but still !!
I went over to change tickets this seemed harder than thought not that many matinees and did not want to go for actual festive period as not kidding the prices hit the top of the empire state building !!! ( also i was not to impressed when i had to pay more as we were changing tickets but being the nice person that i am i never passed the surcharge ( think that’s what call it to mate) !!
In previous months had few escapades with tickets to ill to go or had family visiting so was getting very fed up with shows and PTSD aspie side hit off not going ever again especially as i had lost the tickets they were not little square things but massive rectangles but still the theatre were very understanding giving me fresh copies and encouraging me to come again as was just a blip .
I kept thinking of that saying dont cut your nose to spite your face which is what would be doing if never went out again which was what i was threatening to do big breath OUT of the night that covers black as the pit from pole to pole and breathing deep think of all the fun times not the dark u get the picture !!
so we are now in 2017 and on the whole the weather is much milder than the winters i remember but the last few days been much colder and their was talk of thundersnow what ever that is so was not in the best of moods crossing the river Mersey although no sign of the so-called terror snow in fact not a flake fell .
I have no control with emotions and ptsd kept on biting and not to sure what time meeting was it for a drink before hand or not , oh well to late for that ., the relief was tremendous giving ticket in yey got seat all was well , i enjoyed myself and kept thinking must come here more often although their was a bit of a ding / dong as woman accused woman of swaying to much in her seat really in a panto thought u were supposed to enjoy yourself and join in ( oh yes u are )
I came out to pouring rain really heavy type that kinda hurts u can just feel it and got bus with mate which meant had to hang around for another connection to get home but hey its new year be nice !!!! I am the master of my fate though next time i will wait for my bus ( can’t be nice all the time ))
