Dad was still in hosi but we had plans already made which we were not going to mess about with caring daughter that i am but do love theatre of most kinds and was looking forward to jungle book so much although i had a sneaky feeling this was going more towards the correct route of Rudyard Kipling not the Disney sing along version but pretty sure Eva not bothered although she has a fetish about war so when I told the sad story of Rudyard’s son Jack dying in first world war this was worth a spark of interest .
The weekend was chinese new year and we were entering the year of dog i had looked up events for the New year and saw a dragon was coming for a dance round so off we toddled to William BRown street to museum ( this marked interest with distant relative called william Brown . i was bit surprised to see not much going on outside so ventured in and asked about the dragon “dragon are u sure ” yes it cos new year ” umm no few more worried brows and bit asking til it all became clear it was all down at the other one the museaum of Liverpool life at the docks so wont be seeing any dragons this new year so off we went to see the next best thing dinosaurs !!
The museum is great for although busy their is room to walk around the displays relatively easy although using the lifts t and get people with various buggies and baggage in and out and to the right floor was abit of an art form but people friendly enough as per in Liverpool and after examining various dinosaurs and relics of various creature and not forgetting the fave dinosaur poo
we zoomed to have dinner at St Georges hall and felt really sorry for volunteer really giving us so much info and what we could see in the hall but not kidding time was of the essence if we were going to get to the jungle at time although luckily only 5 mins and still do the usual thing Look for the seat !!! the right one which has not got someone else siting in well usual story we went one way but wrong number f then the other right number f but coats on our seat Oh well move it and did so but only for young girl with maybe her dad coming along ” in our seat ” ” NO its ours this continued for while in pretty friendly way and we both checked tickets and with a smile the man apologised as he was in wrong seat which was slightly along all happy and the two girls sat down and with in mins you wld have thought they had known each other life
wow the thought of how to show a brand new version of the jungle book wa sa success although slightly disappointed no well-known songs but the new songs were catchy and soon had people toe tapping I would not have taken kids younger than 6/7 as I cld hear younger children crying when shere Khan ( nasty tiger came on and Balooh raised a smile with his Welsh lilt as we were all a mixture of the land of song
I have only read the kids version of jungle book but other week picked up the proper copy from a charity shop and was amazed how big it was going to take me awhile and also their is a variety of stories about the jungle obviously but other stories bar this one Mowgli and being brought up and then has to choose were does he really belong with wolves or humans ummm think it can take a lifetime give or take to be where u belong took me along time to find the reader org and its various book grps and learn one of the most important lessons not from Rudyard Kipling but think OSCAR wilde ummmmm yer it is be yourself for everyone else is taken so true being something you are not just makes people break eventually !!!
Eva seemed to like the play specially cos made a friend due to seating mishap but cld tell something bothering her which she confessed that she did not like the fact that the tiger was nasty as she was born in the year of the tiger and she was nice so was not right ummm yer but really would not like to be around a tiger and my mum was born year of snake and that did not come over well we must just accept people animals who they are and not tar everyone with same brush ummm oh well off to the hosi to visit dad which was quite a journey but really could have given it a miss as he had made friends with other people and was quite happy with his new found friends seems to be the day for it so obviously did not stay long not to bad day and sure if ever end up in a jungle will have the bear necessities to cope ( groan )
