Packed this am and left Wyndham Vacation Resort and headed south towards Redfern and Surrey Hills. The hotel I have moved to for tonight is the Central Railway Hotel in Chalmers Street. The Hotel was reasonably cheap and not hard to find. There was parking underneath and we were given a garage door opener to take with us because we were coming back after 9pm. The room was clean, if not a little tired. The globe in my bedside lamp crackled a little too much for my liking and the mini Ikea ironing board had a dicky leg so would not stand up properly.
The sound the light/fan makes when you turn it on is startling, and seems really loud when there are no sounds outside. The room was about one metre from the footpath and then the road. It was not terribly loud with the 3 layers of window dressings designed to cope and to keep out the morning light.
Drove to Cremorne next to collect my mate G from her unit. We walked from there to the local shopping centre to a lovely Thai Restaurant called Sam’s Thai in Neutral Bay for tea. Back to the car and then we drove to town to park in Murray Street, just down the road from the Lyric Theatre, in Pyrmont, ready for Matilda! the musical – Music and Lyrics by Tim Minchin. Clever and fun.
I saw it in New York too and the production here was easier to get. The Librarian was not the same in both productions as I suspectedbut they were both terrific. As was the lead girl playing Matilda. Great kid. Miss Trunchbull was also wonderful.
We booked our tickets online and when we arrived there was a package for us – special deal with these tickets it appeared. A program full of photos and a booklet of the cast. Plus we were given vouchers for two choc tops and two drinks of which we availed ourselves at interval. And some choclates – Most pleasing! 🙂
