Brom and the seven dwarfs


Yesterday we went to Belfast, but we didn't go to see a lot of old buildings and churches and statues and stuff, we went shopping. And bear, can those two girls shop! Now, they are not clothes shoppers, but they love their books and they love dvd's, so a lot of time was spent in both the book stores and the dvd-shop. 

Not only did we go there, we also went to the Christmas market. It wasn't as big as the ones in Germany Mara said, but it looked pretty big to me! There were so many lights in Belfast as well. A lot of Christmas trees with twinkly lights and a lot of other twinkly lights. It was quite magical. 

After dinner, Mara and her sister and me went to the best place of the day: The Grand Opera House in Belfast. Because we were going to see Snow White. We got really good seats (thanks to her sister who booked the tickets), not too far away and not too close and we could see everything that happened on stage. 

There was Snow White and seven dwarves (one who fell asleep the whole time), there was May the cook (May McFettridge, a Northern Irish legend), Muddles (who was very funny) and of course a very handsome prince (Chico) and an evil witch, who we booed every time she came out on stage.

It was very funny and we all had a great time! Mara didn't take any photos from the show itself, but those were taken before the show! I just hope I will be able to go next year as well. To Cinderella!

    OMB Brom - am so sorry that I was MIA... Queensland, apparently, has never heard of etherwebs... sigh...

    Anyway, I have read and caught up with all your posts - love the knitwear!!! Mara is truly very clever with her needles. And you lucky, lucky bear getting a seat of your own on the plane and THEN to get to see the dwarves and snow white and all.... Big huggies and growlies, YAM-aunty xxx

    1. I hope Mara will get an equally good seat when we fly back. As for Snow White? Well, I have dreamed good dreams the past couple of nights...

  2. Sounds like you're off to a great start on your holiday! What fun!

  3. Brom... that sounds like a day Our Mom would Love too.

  4. What a really fun time yoou had!!

    1. It was! It was the first time for a panto though and I didn't quite know what to expect, but it was really funny. Well, hilarious at some points actually.
