The Run Down on Date Night

It was 7pm, and as Hubbster and I stood on the pavement beneath the luminescent signs of the theatre, I looked at him trying desperately to find the words to tell him.

How was I going to break the news to him?

It felt like telling a child the truth about Santa. I knew even before the words left my mouth, how devastated he would be.

“Hun,” I said, trying to steady my trembling voice.

He noted my serious look.

“Whats up?”

“You know that Shane Warne isn’t going to actually be in the Musical tonight, don’t you? He’s being played by an actor called Eddie Perfect.”

His big blue eyes were unable to hide the disappointment as he gave me a reassuring smile. “Yeah, I knew that.”
“And, you also know that the likelihood of Liz Hurley even being there in the audience, let alone sitting next to you, are absolutely nil, right? She’s in the UK”


“But I can put on my best plummy British accent for you for the rest of the evening if that helps?” I grinned.

We can’t be sure, but we suspected said minor celebrities were equally excited to spot us in the crowd too! lol!

Shane Warne the Musical was every bit as hilarious as it had promised to be, and Eddie Perfect lived up to his name! The story of Warnie’s life, as it played out in the media spotlight was told with humour and compassion, with exactly the right amount of bad language…(because I am partial to a little colourful language for dramatic effect!)

If you get the chance to see this show, I highly recommend it! (Although I’d definitely leave the kids at home for this one…)



Jolene enjoys writing, sharing and connecting with other like-minded women online – it also gives her the perfect excuse to ignore Mount-Washmore until it threatens to bury her family in an avalanche of Skylander T-shirts and Frozen Pyjama pants. (No one ever knows where the matching top is!) Likes: Reading, cooking, sketching, dancing (preferably with a Sav Blanc in one hand), social media, and sitting down on a toilet seat that one of her children hasn’t dripped, splashed or sprayed on. Dislikes: Writing pretentious crap about herself in online bio’s and refereeing arguments amongst her offspring.
