DH works away during the week and I'm fed up being on my own again. Not his fault and he wishes he was at home more too. However, I'm in a bit of a grump today and to cheers myself up I'm going to watch P&P on my own with a bottle of Pinot. The BBC version (the best adaption in my humble opinion), not the Keira Knightley one.

I'm looking forward to the bit when their eyes meet over the piano in the drawing room.....

Oh sounds like a fab night-where are you??? I can bring chocolate to go with the wine! :-)

HebeJeeby Thu 16-May-13 19:13:20

chocolate gets you automatic entry. (Budging up on sofa now)

I am so envy - that sounds like the perfect evening. Enjoy wine

YANBU! sounds like the perfect way to spend a Thursday evening

That's my idea of a good night. smile Love the BBC one. And the even earlier BBC one is great, too.

Budge up a bit more for me.

I am so very envy . That honestly does sound like a perfect evening. Not fair.

Hulababy Thu 16-May-13 19:40:25

I would smile
P&P, wine, chocolate - perfect!

Can't we have a fantasy MN version where it is no Ikea Knightly but I get Matthew MacFadyen? Pretty please?

Decoy Thu 16-May-13 19:41:07

YANBU. What a good idea for a nice evening smile

squoosh Thu 16-May-13 19:41:50

Oh yes, I did this recently, was lovely.

Hadn't watched the BBC version in ages so was worried it would look a bit creaky. It doesn't, it's still great. Love the eyes over the piano bit too. Love when Caroline Bingley gets her comeuppance.

I can bring Monster Munch? smile

Oh can I come envy, I have <looks round desperately> half a plum crumble and some mini cheddars. I also have shingles but am not catching, and only slightly spotty so Colin Firth would still find me mysterious and alluring

Nelly000 Thu 16-May-13 19:43:18

Lol at MrsTP autocorrect fail. If that's what is was grin

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 16-May-13 19:47:14

Not a typo. A Mark Kermode reference. Because she is so wooden. Snurk. grin

YANBU. DH is working late tonight and I was just trying to decide whether to watch P&P or something silly from the LoveFilm site Twilight while folding laundry - it'll have to be a hot choc though for pregnant me though.

Ooh wonderful - I stayed up til 1am the other night as I just caught Mansfield Park (1999 classic) on Beeb2. It was gorgeous. DH always fidgets, and prefers car chases, so preferable if he's elsewhere TBH.
Enjoy your evening with The Firth x

LineRunner Thu 16-May-13 19:50:36

Of course, there is always the Eurovision semi-final...

nkf Thu 16-May-13 19:51:04

Without me? Yes, you are being very unreasonable.

JustGiveMeFiveMinutes Thu 16-May-13 19:54:06

I'm on my own too as DH working away. As soon as ds2 in bed I'll be watching Sense and Sensibility which I'm sky plussing atm.

In answer to your question YADNBU grin

sleepingsatellite Thu 16-May-13 19:58:21

Just finished watching it, so no, YANBU!

quizzywizz Thu 16-May-13 20:36:26
