It was their Life at the Limits tour. Fascinating evening - and amazing stuff. Sir Ranulph has, among other things, just become the oldest Britain to complete the Marathon des Sables.
I've done it all of course - though from my sofa, i.e. I have read the books. And I was happy to find he has written a lot more than I thought, so I shall be looking out for those.
And maybe I will become the oldest Britain to have read his book about the Marathon des Sables (if he is going to write one)? Worthing theatre ought to book me now.
What a beautiful evening sky though. It was very hot, and we went out onto the terrace overlooking the sea in the interval, and, wow, a lovely evening.
Got back late.
Cathy and I were out on the doors yesterday morning. And we had a great time. We placed a lot of invitations to the upcoming Convention at the Brighton Amex Stadium, including one with the local vicar and his wife. They were a lovely couple, and apologised for their garden explaining that they were turning it into a wildflower meadow. I said that Captain Butterfly would be thrilled, as we need all the wildflower meadows we can get!
