Thermae-Bath-Spa-5 As you know, I and LM popped off to Bath for a few days at the very beginning of 2015.

One of the highlights of our mini break was our morning at Thermae Bath Spa. What a magical place.. and what stories it has to tell!

Yesterday, I was a VERY lucky girl. I found myself at the Donmar Warehouse for a matinée (a MATINÉE! On a Wednesday!) of the critically acclaimed ‘City of Angels’ – the 80’s musical created by Cy Coleman (music) Larry Gilbert (writer – you’ll know him from M*A*S*H and Tootsie) and David Zippel (lyricist).
