'Storm Front', OTOH, is delightful. I've only gotten halfway through the 1st CD so far, but the story's got me hooked and thank God I've got a few days off coming up, so I can just sit and listen to it unfold. JM of course, is a fantastic reader; but it does feel weird having a book read to me rather than reading it myself.
And so we come to Easter once again. I checked the TV listings for the weekend and sure enough, 'Jesus Christ Superstar' is on again! I might watch it, too...I wonder if they do a sing-along version of it at the Prince Charles Cinema in Leicester Square? They're always doing sing-alongs there. I joined them for 'The Sound of Music'-one last year - I never laughed so hard in all my life! Well, OK, that might have been a slight exaggeration, but it was a fun night out and I would go again if the opportunity presented itself.
In other news: I've taken the decision to put my father in a home. His mental state has been deteriorating steadily and it has reached the point where he can't take care of himself anymore. I've been taking care of him for the last 3 years but it's getting more and more difficult to combine with work and things, and I can't keep taking days off to deal with his crises all the time. Still, I've been balking at making this decision for a long time, burying my head in the sand and hoping I wouldn't have to think about it for a long, long time. I also didn't know how to break it to my Dad that I thought it would be the better option for him, until I discussed it with his neurologist yesterday. To my surprise, Dad agreed to the move, and now that the wheels have been set in motion, I don't expect it will be long before we'll have found him a place somewhere.
