in the end we did manage to see The Lion King


I've been looking forward to this weekend for a while now. We were given tickets to see The Lion King at the Capital Theatre from hubbies parents as a Christmas present. We booked a babysitter (my sister...thanks!!), we made reservations at a nice restaurant and purchased a nice bottle of wine
...excitement plus for new parents, A Whole Evening Out!

But as luck would have it I came down with a mysterious illness that caused me to have vertigo and therefore we cancelled our lovely dinner and put the bottle of wine away, still determined to go to the show, we didn't cancel the babysitter and decided to drive into the city. The show was AMAZING! The costumes, the stage, the music, the dancing...AMAZING! and I managed the whole time to keep my head straight, battled the vertigo and won.

Took us ages to get home, just leaving the car park took over half an hour but we eventually did get home only to discover that little Lucy was sick and up. So we spend the whole night up with her, soothing her back to sleep (4am she eventually collapsed!) all the time feeling slightly guilty for leaving her while she was sick... it seems to me that guilt is an emotion I will need to get use to as a parent!

She is now on the mend with medication and hopefully we will actually sleep tonight, but with a sick 9 month old that's not a certainty. But through the eventfully sick weekend, in the end we did manage to see The Lion King, and we loved it. The dinner and the wine will have to wait for another time.
