On Wednesday we had a night out – we went to the Globe to see Timon of Athens – which, as it turns out is a Shakespeare play which most people agree was only partly written by Shakespeare. Apparently the editors of the first publication of Shakespeare’s plays in the 1600’s wanted to leave it out entirely, and there’s no record of anyone performing it in Shakespeare’s time.

Ok – it wasn’t up to the standard of Macbeth – it was a bit simplistic – but nowhere near as dull as Midsummer Night’s Dream which gets performed all the time because it’s got fairies in it.

No time to write more now – I can hear George crying because it’s his bath time….
