The Comedy Store

I went on Tuesday 7th December.
I have to say things didn’t look promising when I turned up for the other half’s Office Christmas Do this year. Things aren’t exactly going well for the company right now, and as I walked in the atmosphere was seriously choking. So I have to say The Comedy Store is a pretty good idea because at least you don’t have to make small talk while watching a show. It may also cheer people up a bit. And, to be completely truthful; it worked!
The food there isn’t what you want to go for really. There are a couple of tables, but not enough for everyone to sit at, so you balance your burger and chips and drink on your lap in the rows of seats facing the stage. I don’t know how much it cost (thanks to the kind boss man ;o) but it seemed pretty reasonable food really. Though there wasn’t enough mayonnaise in my chicken burger.
Anyway – onto the show: It was brilliant! They said as it was a Christmas occasion, they were doing things a bit differently and the audience shouted out various news topics they had to make jokes about. They also did games like one guy has to follow on from the other and any hesitations they’re off the stage. The names of the guys were: Andy Parsons, Paul Thorne, Steve Gribbin and Ian Stone. There were a couple of others but I couldn’t find their photos on the website to find their names. Steve Gribbin was the only one who I didn’t find particularly funny – especially when he got up with his guitar. But for 90% of the time, I was really laughing and it was a really good night out. Everyone enjoyed themselves.
My only word of caution – don’t go if you’re worried about passive smoking – my eyes were watering from all the smoke in the room.

Entertainment, Theatre,

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them review (no spoilers)
November 20, 2016
This is just a quick extra post because I went to watch this film last night and thought it was absolutely fantastic! As Harry Potter fans, we were very excited in this household and the kids and I dressed up for the occasion in 1920’s style outfits! We ate a meal first at the Frankie & Benny’s opposite the Cineworld cinema in Yeovil (which, by the way is hugely improved from last time we went there – I think they’ve employed new kitchen staff) and sneaked pudding, in the form of chocolate buttons, in my bag into Screen eight!….
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
What it’s like to be an Introvert
October 20, 2016
Move over anxiety; being an introvert is the new fashionable difficulty! I am of course, being slightly tongue-in-cheek, but I when I recently started getting into You Tube, I couldn’t believe how many people are giving their videos titles such as, ‘Coping with anxiety,’ and ‘My depression story.’ I couldn’t help but be a little cynical. Could this many people really be dealing with mental health issues, or has it just become a little fashionable? Then I considered two things…..
