"In spite of my intense fear and sense of shock, I was consumed with the desire to find out exactly who it was that I had seen, and how, I could not rest until I had settled the business, for all that, while out there, I had not dared to stay and make any investigations.”
We went to see The Woman In Black at the local theatre last night, and it was good. I've been obsessed with the idea of going since reading the book for the first time last year, and it definitely didn't disappoint. The gin bramble Luke bought for me at a nearby bar afterwards didn't either, but that's a story for another day. Now, in case you haven't seen this show and are planning to (it being Halloween month and all) I won't go into detail about it. But I will say this: it is much better than the movie, it follows the book very closely, and the ending is absolutely brilliant. The 'surprise'? (if you've seen it you know what I'm saying) chilled me. I really really recommend it, although if you have bad nerves and/or get easily frightened, you should prepare yourself for terror related heart failure. Seriously.
Tonight I plan to settle in to a coconutty bubble bath, drink some tea, have take out curry and re-read my copy of The Woman In Black before passing out in a heap on the sofa. This week was my first at my (brilliant) new job, and I am absolutely exhausted.
Have an amazing weekend x
