A full day. Did a fair amount of writing this morning, and then went for a long walk for a couple of hours. Also had a hair cut (the less hair you have the more you need it cut etc.) and bought another copy of Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience. This with the pictures and the words facing them.

In the evening Lorraine drove us down to Hove where we met Beth and had some dinner at the Regency cafe. I had superior fish and chips, and Lorraine had fish pie, and Beth had a seafood platter. Full of Chinese tourists for some reason.

Then we walked along the seafront to the Brighton Centre to see War Horse the theatre show based on the Michael Morpurgo children's story. The show worked very well, and the sets and costumes were really good. The story had its heart in the right place, but I thought the pace a tad slow, probably due to playing to such a huge hall. I'd never been to the Brighton Centre. A nice way to spend an evening in the week, a rare school night out for Lorraine, and I am very pleased I saw it. The life size horse puppets were amazing, interesting how the people puppeting them became less visible after a while.
