        ... 8230;. but when a woman from the front row, exactly where I would have been sitting, was called onto the stage I got over it!! The show was pretty good as the kids loved it and Lyndon and I got a kick out of seeing the not-so-slight of hand for many of the acts, so something for everyone.

        After the show we made the mistake of sitting down to an Italian meal, realising once we had ordered that eating a full meal at 10.00pm when you are tired is really not a great ...
