Leap Year


As we wait for yet another storm to arrive [don’t you think it’s weird how they like to arrive at weekends] a Happy Birthday to all those celebrating their birthdays today. My grandmother’s birthday was on the 28th and for 3 years out of 4 she must have shared it with all those who only saw their birth date once every four years.

Last week there was a singular sunny day and it just changed everything, the mood and the hope that Spring may be on its way. I stopped and took a photograph of the daffodil fields, which have been hives of industrial picking over the past weeks. People wrapped up for all weather bending over and picking the buds to bunch and take to be sold. I wonder what the difference will be next year? It’s unskilled labour yet very hard, back breaking work.



Next week I am performing a show I made almost 7 years ago! A performance about the Plymouth Synagogue, which has a unique history of its own, and because the Theatre Royal in Plymouth are showing a play called Amsterdam, which has Jewish themes I am performing four times in the front of house to compliment the in house show. https://theatreroyal.com/whats-on/coffee-with-vera

If you are in Plymouth, come along, it’s free and there will be tea & Kit Kats

  • Friday 6th March @ 2.30pm and 5pm
  • Saturday 7th March @ 12noon and 5pm
