Watched the DVD of Hairspray last night. In fact I was beguiled, bewitched, stirred with memories (yes of iron-firm hair but also of the civil rights movement in the 60s. And I wanted to dance and sing-a-long.

Just as well my offspring bought me the karaoke, do songs with animated lyrics extras!

The other thing I did, was to finish my library copy of Libby Purves’s Passing Go. Interestingly, it explores issues of justice and relationships, only in the 21st century. Altogether a day with much to think about.

    I’ve just bought Hairspray to do with the church film group. I thought we needed something a little cheerier after a host of earnest meaningful ones. Haven’t had time to watch it yet but looking forward to it.

    I read Libby Purves’ first book about her childhood and thought it was excellent. Will look out for that one too.
