The Edit
Read. Watch. Listen.
Weather update. Still hot. Back update. A lot better thanks.
Last weekend I went back to my childhood cinema to watch Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again with my mum, sister and boyfriend. It was one of my favourite days out in ages and a real reminder of how wonderful the experience of sharing a film on the big screen with other people can be.
Tomorrow I am going to Brighton Pride, sharing a moment with other people on a slightly bigger scale and hopefully Britney Spears. I always feel quite apprehensive about the event and the addition of a pop icon to proceedings has served to somewhat intensify that. I’ll report back next week.
For now, here’s my pick of things to read, watch and listen to.
Have a lovely weekend.
Bye!
