One last time – Visit to the Myer Windows – 5th January 2016 – Little Dog and the Christmas Wish
Last night my husband and I were in the city seeing the wonderful Fiddler on the Roof (see it if you can.) I hadn’t realised it was opening night so there was the red carpet, the media and a gathering of actors, including Eddie Perfect who was sitting near us.
Afterwards we wandered down to the Myer Windows to see ‘Little Dog’ for one last time. Robin Cowcher and I had been the night before, but as we were so close, I couldn’t resist the temptation. As far as I know it is now dismantled (scheduled for 1.00 a.m. this morning.)
A couple of times, Robin and I stood looking, totally anonymous, listening to the comments and watching the joy the windows were bringing to all who saw them. Stage One . . . what a creation!!!!!!!
At about 10.45 last night, with few people about, my husband and I took one last look and while we listened and watched one particular family enjoying it, I decided to tell them I was the author of the book. We talked and snapped photos and it all took a little longer than I thought.
Returning to the car park at 11.05 we discovered . . . . we’d been locked out. Thank you, thank you to the very kind lady, who, when I told her why we were late, she opened up. I didn’t get her name, but I am soooo very grateful.
It does feel strange now . . . but oh, what a dream it has been!
Here are a final last few glimpses.
My husband, Grant. He’s been a rock!
The family we met last night.
Walking away . . . one last time.
