Well it’s been a brilliant week this week so the Rose is a choice between starting the week with Summer Holiday at Bolton Octagon which was so brilliant. Have a read of my review here and if you are in the area, get yourself down. Then I had my Levison Wood blog post retweeted by the man himself and I even got a thank you. After that I went to see my first ballet, Jane Eyre, by the Northern Ballet. Finally a lovely weekend with my parents was topped off with some of the best seats for Soccer Aid. My parents and I have never missed one of these and the atmosphere is always so brilliant. This year we were about three rows from the pitch so got to see all the action close up. Not bad to witness Cantona’s return to the Old Trafford pitch. Oh and I got my first ever paid writing gig for a website in America, here’s a link to my Dynasty Smackdown article.

So after all that goodness, I’m really struggling with the old thorn so in honour of my brilliant week I’m going to declare this week thornless! Let many other weeks be like this. Hope you all had a thornless week and continue to do so.
