Living it up in London

To Sadler’s Wells last week to see Matthew Bourne’s The Car Man. Fantabulous. I think I’ve seen all of his shows now and while this was my second viewing of The Car Man and I’ve seen Swan Lake three times over the last few years at the theatre, I don’t think I’ll be rushing back to see Highland Fling but everything else he’s done has been sublime.

Also went to see Patrick Hamilton’s Gaslight at The Old Vic a couple of weeks ago which was wonderful stuff. Upcoming delights we’ve got tickets for include Elling and Fiddler on the Roof although I’m looking forward to that one more than my boyfriend is, can’t think why. What’s not to like about overblown West End musical theatre?

Making the most of living in London is what it’s all about. My thinking is that if you don’t go out and see things, do things, take what’s offered and enjoy it, you might as well not be here, in one of the most exciting cities in the world. I know, I'm so fickle. One minute I love the place and the next I'm pining for up north by the sea.

I know what you're saying in your last paragraph. My problem is I only tend to do that stuff when friends or relatives come to visit! God all that culture and stuff on my doorstep and I can't even be ar*ed. I'm a lazy blighter. These days I'd rather sit at home and watch "V" or some other cheesy DVD.
