We're all in this Together!!!!






Last night we took a trip to London, Hammersmith Apollo to see High School Musical.
It was a brilliant show, full of life and colour. Beth had no idea where we were going and didn't twig until we were on the train. Megs was a last minute replacement fro Carl who had to work. I don't think it would have been to his taste, although there was one bloke right at the front who was stood up dancing for most of the performance!!!
The actual cost of the all the things that kids want was extortionate, the pom poms started off at £5 per pair. (Just a bit of glittery tinsel stuff on a plastic handle) I managed to play two salesmen off against each other, saying that one was selling for £4, eventually going back to the original guy and getting them for £3 a pair!! The ice creams were a mega £2.50 each for a minute tub, the programs were £7, but they were good value a very comprehensive book with loads of glossy photos and a pull out poster. Coke was a bargain at £3 for a Glass!! So even with the reduced price tickets, we managed to spend around £150 for a nights entertainment, not something you could do every month!!
Still it was worth it for the look on the girls faces and the excitement of seeing them join in and sing along with their pom poms!!!

The girls really look like they are enjoying themselves. I couldnt get over the price of the coke in the theatre when we went either. I wasnt at all surprised to see the peeps in front of me unload a picnic box!
