Had a lovely day out today with Big Muddle. Together with her friend and her mother we went to Nottingham Theatre Royal to see The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark, staged by BlunderBus Theatre Company. It's the adaptation of the children's story book and was incredibly well done. All the children were caught up in it, joining in all the way through and the puppets and the set were beautiful. The cast were so high energy I was exhausted just watching them and they really brought the story to life.
Afterwards we popped to TGI Fridays. This is without a doubt my favourite family restaurant. All the staff were excellent as always and the food was fab. Their children's menu is very well thought out, with a section for younger children, and one for older, more adventurous, palates. We left very happy and very full!
It was lovely to have a day out to focus just on Big Muddle, I'll have to make a point of doing it more often. But we'll definitely be going back to the theatre more often, she loved it!
