Active Easter

Timothy Belmont has enjoyed a terrific Easter. I was at the newly-built Lyric Theatre, Belfast, on Friday evening for a performance of Carthaginians.

On Saturday I attended a matinee performance of Blood Brothers at the Grand Opera House, Belfast, which, by the way, was excellent. The cast received a standing ovation at the conclusion and they came back on stage about four times.

After the show, we went to Deane's new seafood restaurant, which is immediately inside the main entrance on Howard Street.

We enjoyed artisan bread, butter, olive oil; fine, silky smooth pate; battered squid; rather agreeable retro-style prawn cocktail. The culinary maestro himself, Michael Deane, was cooking in the kitchen.

I have also indulged in very hearty cooked breakfasts for the last two days, consisting of egg, bacon, sausage, black pudding, white pudding, mushrooms, tomato, potato bread, soda bread, baked beans.

Well it is not often that I enjoy these big breakfasts, so this was a treat.

Methinks I shall spend the rest of Easter recovering.
