Crying in my soup :<)

A song, and a poem express pretty well what I am feeling today.

The song first, the Barenaked Ladies' "If I had $1,000,000". Then Browning's poem, "Oh, to be in England, now that April's there."

If you read Elaine's comment on the preceding post today, you'll know why. The Importance of Being Earnest is on stage at the Vaudeville Theatre in London. This is good enough in itself, but with Penelope Keith, Janet Henfrey ("our" Mrs Bale), and Lol, also from As Time Goes By, appearing, I could just cry that I can't be there.

  1. Oh, I feel for you. It's at times like this that the world feels so big.

  2. well I hate to rub it in but it was wonderful. My cry of Oh Look it's Mrs Bale came out slightly louder than I intended as well, much to the annoyance of people around me....

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
