An Anniversary present

On monday evening we got dressed up and went to London to see.....
Les Miserables










The singing was amazing and we had super seats, right in the middle of the third row in the circle.
It was our 5th wedding anniversary present to ourselves, booked some time ago by DH.. I even had my hair done and bought a new outfit too..
Had a bit of a hiccup before we went.. we were standing on the platform in Billericay and Mike suddenly said oh sh--. I’ve left the tickets in the car!!!! So off he went arrived back breathless to see the 5:17 train leave!! But we had chosen to go a bit earlier than we needed to take our time in London. So we caught the 5:37 and arrived in plenty of time.. just on 7:00pm  at the theatre. The trains at that time are all fasts so it is only a 30min journey into London.
What is he like????

Any way we had a wonderful evening, fabulous seats so a great view.
A super present  to ourselves although pretty pricy and the fruit trees we bought  ourselves as well were   naughty an extra!! LOL I think we are on a spending diet for the next month or two!! LOL
If you haven't see the show it is well worth a visit. We also would like to see 'Over the Rainbow' as we followed the competition to find the perfect Dorothy each week on the TV..
And we want to go to a Christmas Carol concert and and and  ........ the list could go on and on LOL

Happy Days

Hugs

Happy Anniversary!!! I am seeing this in October at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC with my DH and daughter. It is her treat to her dad for his birthday. So nice to send a memorable night with the ones you love.

Happy anniversary, Chris!

Was Alfie there for les Mis? I have recently 'found' him and I think he is absolutely amazing. He have listened to his Youtube clips over and over again, after seeing him on the BBC recently.
