Every year just before Christmas I have 'an away day' in which I go back to the Home Counties, lunch with old friend, take tea with another, supper with a couple of my old theatre pals (actresses, naturally!) and then go to the Theatre Club Xmas party. The year before last, regular readers may recall, I only got as far as lunch before the blizzard came in and it took me 12 hours to get home on a journey that is normally 2 hours. Last year, sort of fortunately, the snow came before I even had chance to set off. So, today I am trying to catch up by doing all the things I missed but instead of a party I shall be seeing our production of 'Pygmalion'.
Anyway, the point of all this is to tell you that there will be no words of wisdom from D&N today - sorry, what was that? - 'no chang there, then!' - shockin', shockin'!
