We went to the panto (oh no you didn't....)
oh yes we did. Anyway, he's beeeehind you....
The kids are now really old enough to enjoy a panto - as opposed to last year when Issie was bemused and Max was bored! This year is also our last chance to go to a proper British Pantomime, so we grabbed that chance in style with a trip to Aladdin at the Cambridge Arts Theatre. When Gesa went to buy tickets, only the full price seats were left, but the ticket agent suggested we got a box - in the end it was only 10 quid more, so we felt like royalty - it was great. I wanted to be like the old gits in the muppets but apparently I'm enough of a muppet without proving it to the rest of the theatre.
We enjoyed the show, and although Max still got a bit bored about halfway through Act 2, it didn't matter as we had the box all to ourselves. We'd spent breakfast practising the 'oh yes it is, oh no it isn't' and 'he's behind you' bits, so the kids were well up for that. Classic British Christmas fun and games.
