"At our time in the day"

Laetare Sunday, or, at least, the weekend of Laetare Sunday. This is my excuse for going to the theatre during Lent (see post below). We also went to the theatre on Gaudete Sunday during Advent - to see War Horse - which is now about to transfer from the National Theatre to another London theatre.

At our age, it did seem very rebellious to be in the West End of London on a Friday evening.

This was a "posh watches" occasion. And, yes, that does mean 12.30 am, in the middle of the night, not the middle of the day. We still have some staying power, as well as having watches that match! Notice the existence, though, of "Irish time" - the watch set five minutes fast to make up for delay ....

I have only just spotted "At our time in the day"-well thought of! For any readers this was an expression said in the play.
