THE WEATHER OUTSIDE IS FRIGHTFUL - BUT!!


Last night it rained, then it snowed, then it rained again, which has filled our pavements with grey freezing slush. What to do? apart from staying in with the heating turned up. As you well know such days can be pretty lacklustre, plans get put on the back burner and you feel a bit deflated. But ' hey nonny nonny ' (or words to that effect) did you know there is a website called digital theatre .com

http://www.digitaltheatre.com/production


You can for a reasonable fee (£3.99) watch a brilliant theatre production online.


Then you can recline like the goddess you undoubtedly are (although I would add a few more clothes if I were you it is jolly nippy round here) and watch David Tennant  strut his stuff. With hindsight the extra padding may not be a good idea, David Tennant has been known to raise many a young ladies temperature! 






AND whilst having your morning bath you can send someone out to fetch a few essentials 




There you are the day feels less drab now doesn't it................


PS  SOME people may have already seen the above production  'live' Yes you know who you are!!

  1. Hello Susan:
    Well, we have to confess that we are getting rather tired of reading about the white stuff/grey stuff/horizontal rain/searing heat [down under, that is].What a welcome change to happen upon your delicious post at this hour of a Saturday morning and have some wonderfully decadent suggestions for the weekend which is yet in its infancy.

    We regret that we did not see KT and DT strut their stuff on the boards of Wyndham's, would that we had. Indeed, it only serves to make us nostalgic for dear Stratford since the Hungarian theatre is a tad beyond our understanding just at present.

    Still, it is 'The Flying Dutchman' for us in the Opera House on Sunday. We shall brave the subzero temperatures for it is but a step away from where we live. And, unlike so many places in England, we know that it will be warm inside.

    Squeezy Jet would bring you here in a trice, dearest Susan....collect your thermals and come!!!!!

    Happy weekend!!!

  2. What a brilliant way to begin the day -- with this post from you that made me smile and giggle and be reminded once again how your writing delights me. Do you talk like this in real life? Because when I'm over there in May I think you and I are in for a rousing visit!!! Live theatre...digitally! Who knew!?

  3. {**SHOUTING**} IT WAS ME, IT WAS ME, I SAW THIS PRODUCTION LIVE, WITH THE WONDERFUL MR T AND MS TATE!!!!!!! Ok, I'll calm down now :)

    I did NOT know about this digital theatre thing - thank you so much for the info. I'll nip over and have a look.

    ps we're going to try again to see Les Mis tomorrow night, having had to cancel our previous booking due to the darned snow. I can't wait! Have you seen it already?

  4. Utterly divine. I hope carrier pigeon broadband will be up to it. It may be that my version has more intervals than most. Extra chocolates and wine. Hey Ho.

  5. Now why didn't you tell me this at the start of last week?! Decent theatre that costs the same as a copy of Country Living! And I'm with Jessica ... there may be more intervals than intended in wildest Wales, but that also means more choccies (and wine if I wait until I've finished the anti-b's). So guess what I'll be doing the afternoon while the Mr. tackles the housework ;)

    Thank you for the get well wishes m'dear, very much appreciated :D

  7. Much Ado About Nothing happens to be one of our favourites (Kenneth Branagh's version) as well but I must say your way of watching the play sounds better! Chocolate bath soaps? Must be that on the list to shop for!
    Keep warm and toasty!

  8. I can't think of anything better than a box of chocolates, a glass of wine and a good play/movie on the TV. You never even have to leave your bedroom (unless you want too). Just snuggle down beneath the covers and enjoy the evening! Sigh...sounds good to me!

  9. I love how winter makes us slow down and find extraordinary pleasure in ordinary things. Who can resist teathre, wine ... And chocolate, Really?!
    Hope your days are happy!
