OK would you go to LONDON tomorrow to the theatre ?

We ahve got tickets and my mum says we shouldn't be going

We are going, would you?

Go! what are you going to see RT?

kid · 22/07/2005 22:39

Yes I would go. There are still lots of people out and about in the city.

Fran1 · 22/07/2005 22:39

Oh yes, definitely go.

What are you seeing?


Flossam · 22/07/2005 22:40

I think as long as you are going for a worthwhile reason - go. enjoy yourselves.

serenity · 22/07/2005 22:40

I'd go. Have fun

hunkermunker · 22/07/2005 22:41

Absolutely, I would definitely go.

Enjoy it! What are you seeing?

RTKangaMummy · 22/07/2005 22:42


my mum says we shouldn't

I told her we were far more likely to be in car accident

I am worried but DS is sooooooooo excited I don't want to disappoint him

But wonder if I/we are being rather stupid in going cos it is not like it is essential

You know like we have to go for work IYSWIM

Definately - wouldn't hesitate really

spidermama · 22/07/2005 22:43

Yes. It's a bit sombre at the mo' but don't let it spoil things for you. Enjoy.

RTKangaMummy · 22/07/2005 22:44

I have told her I will ring her several times during the time we are there from my mobile

Blu · 22/07/2005 22:45

Yes, I'd go.
Hope you enjoy it!

(just monitor the latest transport situation before you set off and leave loads of time for delays)

Flossam · 22/07/2005 22:46

I have decided on a policy of no central London shopping with DS. I have no reason to really, live 15 minutes overland train to Lakeside, friend is always up for driving to Bluewater etc etc. I will, in the next few weeks start visiting friends who live centrally, and will travel centrally to catch my train with DS to visit my mother. Does that make sense? Might also try to hold him where possible, so I can run easier if needs be, sorry if OTT, but trying to think things through out loud.

Flossam · 22/07/2005 22:47

RTKM, surely you only need ring to say you have arrived and one to say you are home safe? perhaps one to say you are setting off home?

hunkermunker · 22/07/2005 22:49

Oh, wow! Enjoy!

hunkermunker · 22/07/2005 22:49

Flossam, I'd go to Bluewater over central London any day

RTKangaMummy · 22/07/2005 22:50

Am prob going to drive in

Cos hate trains of any sort and haven't been on one for years

Would usually get a bus but am going to use taxi

DS is 10 years btw

Went to the theatre in central London on Thursday. Streets perhaps a little quieter than usual but pubs full of normal-sounding chatting. Took the tube home.

Am taking children to the Blue Peter prom in Albert Hall tomorrow.

So, yes.

RTKangaMummy · 22/07/2005 22:52

I will prob ring during interval cos have told her I would

I don't want DS to worry about it though

OP posts:
Flossam · 22/07/2005 22:53

It's loooveeeerly there isn't it HM? Must stay away ATM though, am so skint it isn't funny.

handlemecarefully · 22/07/2005 22:54

Actually no I wouldn't - but take no notice of me, I know I am being ridiculous! (my dh has told me so, as have friends when discussing the 'would you / wouldn't you go to London scenario)

RTKangaMummy · 22/07/2005 22:54

on news it said they are searching bags in theatre and museums

OP posts:
hunkermunker · 22/07/2005 22:55

Yes, love it, Flossam! Never seem to have enough time there (live the other side of London!), but thoroughly enjoy it!

binkie · 22/07/2005 22:59

But searching bags isn't anything new, though. Does the idea of that scare you more, or less?

RTKangaMummy · 22/07/2005 23:00

it makes me feel better actually

OP posts:
binkie · 22/07/2005 23:06

Good. Then, really, in your place I would go.
