  1. Several years ago we had tickets for Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, but on the day grandpa was taken ill and we gave the tickets to friends. A year later we booked to see it again, but it was shortly after we were due to come home from holiday and I was concerned we’d forget to go. We didn’t…we grabbed the tickets, headed off and having told the attendant our seat numbers we were waved to our places. The theatre seemed oddly empty for such a popular musical, and when the curtain went up, we realised we were at a film showing….In our anxiety not to miss it a second time we’d turned up a week early….so we watched the film giggling in the dark, and returned a week later to see Joseph…On the other hand I once turned up to interview an earl almost an hour late. As we arrived outside his pile at five to noon for an eleven o’clock appointment, the photographer said “leave it to me…” When the earl himself opened the door, the photographer said shamelessly “I realise we’re five minutes early, so if you aren’t quite ready we’ll just wait in the car for five minutes…” The poor man looked utterly bemused but assured us it was fine and then gave us tea and biscuits which we definitely did not deserve!
