I am full of a cold today and THIS is the reason why!
Outside the theatre where Mr Sally works, they have put up a HUGE TV screen and are showing films every Thursday night and Saturday.
I finished rehearsals on Thursday and had half an hour to kill before Mr Sally finished work, so I pottered over to the screen. They were playing 'Withnail and I,' which I've never seen and EVERYONE seems shocked when I say I haven't seen it!
You can hire a yellow deck chair and blanket for £2 or you can sit on the grass for free.
I got myself a take-out coffee and watched some of the film - which was FUNNY and left me wondering why in fact I have never seen it before!
A little bit of rain started and I though, 'It's only a bit of rain - it'll pass.'
The heavens opened and it CHUCKED it down! I ran over to the theatre to borrow an umbrella but it just didn't stop throwing it down.
Such a shame as I think the screen is a fab idea. There will be films playing all through Summer, so hopefully the nights will get better.
They're playing everything from Breakfast at Tiffany's to the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
