The Hills Are Alive....(and Giveaway Result!!)....

....last night I went to see:

My friend L treated me as a surprise (how lovely is that?) - I *love* The Sound Of Music and have actually been reading the book of the real story by Maria Von Trapp so I was delighted when L told me we were going (L didn't know I was reading it - she and I are always doing spooky psychic things).

My Mum threatened to put me off a bit though when she said it would be "like a school play" because it was being done by an Am Dram society - so I was wondering what is was going to be like when we took our seats.

It was WONDERFUL!!!!!!! It couldn't have been any better if it was on the West End.

I blubbed. Managed to keep the actual tears until the end but as Maria, the Captain and the children climbed the mountain silhouetted against the moon it was too much!!

I just love, love, love a musical!!

Now without further ado I shall announce the winner of the giveaway........

  1. Ah isn't it great? SO chuffed you loved it so much.
    Three Christmases ago my dad took me, my mum, my sister and myself to London for our annual festive afternoon tea at the Ritz and at the end we sighed and said how perfect the day had been.
    Then he announced he'd found a way to make it even more special, and told us he had booked tickets to watch Sound of Music in the West End (it is my family's fave film ever. My sis and I are always quoting from it and love Georg so much) so this was the best ending to a fabulous day. We all cried too, Dad managed to be more manly thank god!!!!!
    LOVE your recent fugly transformations by the way.
    Have a lush weekend

  2. I LOVE a good musical, when I was living in London Ray and I went to the theatre all the time. Expensive! But sooo worth it :-) Les Miserable is my fave but we went to see Sister Act when it was on at the Paladium theatre and it was Amazing. Ahhhh the good old day's! haha It's a bit more difficult to go now we have little Rose... xxx

  3. I'm so glad you had a fab time seeing "The Sound of Music", you have an awesome friend. "Spooky psychic thing", that made me laugh. Good friends are like that, don't you think?!! :)
    Congratulations to your giveaway winner.
