"OH WHAT A NIGHT"

Hi everyone!
How are all  mothers/grandmothers coping with the school holidays? Busy busy busy! Did I tell you I have no.8 grandchild on the way? So my Christmas and birthday list is now huge! (now you know why I have to be so shop savvy!)

I was taken out on a surprise trip out to Leicester Square to have a few drinks and see a show. Had a fantastic time!, this is what I wore


Difficult to know what to wear at the moment don't you think? One minute it's sunny and hot, the next it's cloudy, chilly and raining! It did drizzle a little while we were there. I bought this lace dress a while ago in T K Max My favourite to go place for a bargain. Draped over my bag is my cream pashmina (goes everywhere in this weather) An accessory I totally recommend!


Bargain shoes from Choice which sells the fabulous next brand

Anyway back onto the day out, Really, really busy time in Leicester Square. Shoulder to shoulder walking around. And just got lucky to get a seat in one of the many bars there. I love to sit outside and people watch, but today it was just too busy. I could do that all day long, and be more than happy.



          I never tire of looking at historic statues and buildings in London



             Watching the kiddies getting a soaking, enjoying their day out


It makes me smile, how they try to hide the building works going on (note the umbrella photo bomber!)


Off to the show... sadly no pictures were aloud whilst in there. Shame, but I recommend anyone go. I wasn't sure about this show, as I'm not a big Frankie valley fan. But the story line was good, the singing was excellent. And the stamina that the actors/actresses had, I really admired. These people sung and danced more than anyone you would see at a concert any day.


Picture says it all! Had a great time!
Have you got any shows to recommend to me? I don't know what to go see next. I wanted to see We Will Rock You but sadly it's no longer showing. So I would love to here from you!

  1. Looks like you had a great time. I love going to London, although bit of a trek for me (2 hours by car) and I love a good show. Les Mis is still my all time favourite and think it always will be. I desperately want tickets to see Book of Mournon, have you seen it? You look stunning in that dress BTW!

  3. What a pretty, flirty dress! And T.K.Max!?! Maybe I should give it another chance. it usually creeps me out, so messy... Or maybe I'm just a bigger snob than I thought...
