Up to that there London.......excuse the fuzzy picture........

The House of Rufus. The Royal Opera House. Some drinking, eating, walking, and generally being a tourist.
That man is blessed with an amazing voice. With a sister who unexpectedly joined him on stage last night and sang Stormy Weather. What a bonus.....Rufus and Martha together. I loved London this time.....sometimes I don't....sometimes it seems full and frantic and uncaring and ugly......but not this time....the sun shone, the streets weren't too busy and the glasses of fizz took the sharp corners off my thinking.....

There's something very enticing about that photograph - it captures the essence of your words in the post.

Eldest daughter had a ticket for that concert, but made the huge sacrifice to come down to us instead. So glad you had a great time.

He's cute, I will say that. Have to go now and give a listen to his voice.

Sounds amazing - we went for coffee and cake at ROH last time in the smoke but have to make do with opera north at theatre royal in Newcastle until we go to London eventually without 11 year old! For now it's the railway children, (amazing) and Glee at the O2! Both brilliant of their genre.
