Anne and I have a special occasion coming up in a few weeks and we’ve decided to go all out and spend some pennies. We’re off to see a London show and stay the night, and because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime event I’ve booked an extra surprise for Anne.
We’re going to be picked up by limousine! Yes a real chauffeur driven job. I hunted around for ages and came across a nice company called CrawleyLimo.com – in Crawley as it happens! They’re providing a wonderful chauffeur-driven Lincoln to arrive here mid-afternoon. Anne thinks we’re taking the train so she’ll be very excited. Apart from our wedding I don’t think either of us has ever been in a proper limo.
Then we travel up to London to our hotel, book in and should have time for an early supper before heading to the theatre. We are so looking forward to it.
We’re going to see Mama Mia at the Novello. Of course we’ve seen the film a few times and Meryl Streep is wonderful, although Pierce Brosnan’s singing leaves a bit to be desired! Oh and Julie Walters is wonderful too.
But this will be the first time we’ve seen it live so we’re really looking forward to joining in all the songs (I hope that’s allowed?). We haven’t been to the theatre for years so no idea of the etiquette but I’m sure we’ll be fine. We loved Abba back in the day, so many memorable songs and all those customes!
We did go to an Abba tribute party once, fancy dress it was. We dressed up as punks if I remember rightly and had a fabulous evening. And that tribute was fantastic, mind you that was probably 20 years ago so we were a bit more energetic then.
