"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Okay, off to a place called Haverhill in Suffolk (England) this afternoon for my sister-in-law's 50th birthday celebrations. And no, they won't consist of sitting around drinking cups of tea and watching The Afternoon Show (hopefully) Going to see the Lion King in London on Friday night - not my choice but I've been told that for reasons of family solidarity, my presence is required.
Not sure about online access, but hope to get my Poetry Bus ticket in before I return on Monday.


  1. Never been to Suffolk.Sounds nice, have a good trip, be sure and enjoy the Lion King (sniggers)

  2. get on the bus gus!!!

    Sounds like a fun trip, enjoy

  3. I'm sure you'll enjoy the Lion King but perhaps not in the conventional sense I can see maybe a few prompts for poems comeing form the experience?

  4. As Gwei Mui says, I can definitely see a few prompts springing forth from attending the musical. I have not seen it, myself, but I do think you will find something to like about it, even if it's just the lion-villain, Scar. (Jeremy Irons did a brilliant voice for that character in the animated film).

    I for one, am rubbing my hands in anticipation of what the experience will spark.

    Have fun in Jolly Old England.
