Visit to the cemetery and a wonderful Magic flute at the Opera

 A scene from the Magic flute

As I told you in my last post I was going to the Royal Opera to see Mozar's The Magic flute.

What a performance that was! The Opera was sold out, not one seat left. The opera itself was so funny and with some twist and turns you wouldn't expect.

For instance, the opera started with a sleeping Tamino - in the audience front row in the stalls. From there he, after pretending being asleep for a good 15 minutes, went through the orchestra pit and up to the stage via a ladder. And it went on from there. I had some good laughs as well as just enjoying the beautiful music.

Me by the grave

Then today me and Helen visited Mom and Dad's grave. It's not All Saint's Day until next weekend but then the cemetery will be packed with people which means no peace, quiet and time to reflect. Today it was very peaceful and we placed candles by the grave as well as a little wreth with flowers and cones. Also Helen had bought a couple of stones that said Mom and Dad and with a heart. See photo.

 Doesn't it look pretty? I think especially Mom would have loved it!

Have a good Sunday, tomorrow it's Monday and time to work :-)
