It's been a busy week and a bit. Last Saturday me and my husband Alex managed to have a whole day off together (he usually works weekends) so we decided to go to St Pauls Cathedral as I have wanted to go for ages. I found a voucher that got us in two for one and we spent a while looking around the ground floor before climbing the many stairs to the various levels. The first level is the whispering gallery where you whisper against the wall and someone on the other side of the dome can hear it. We finally got it to work which confused me as I hadn't seen Alex sneak off and then hearing his voice next to me I was really confused when he wasn't there! The other two levels were outside giving a good view over the city (the Stone Gallery and the Golden Gallery). I took some nice photos on my mobile phone but for some reason I can't get them to upload.
After going to St Pauls we had tickets to see the RSC performance of King Lear staring Sir Ian McKellan (Gandalf!) as King Lear and Slyvestor McCoy as The Fool (one of the old Dr Who actors). It was a great performance and all the actors were fab in their roles. It is my favourite Shakespeare play and I have wanted to see it performed on stage since I first read it. The best thing was getting a lot of autographs afterwards of the cast including Sir Ian and Sylvestor who were both really sweet.
