Changing landscape

 I was lucky enough to go and see the very wonderful production of Virginia Woolf's A room of one's own at the Belvoir. I am very glad it was before the new rules came out, as for me, the spacing seemed enough for me to be comfortable. I'm not 100% sure how I feel about the new rules. Will keep watching the numbers and see, I guess. I am very glad they make you wear a mask throughout though. I hope that rule stays in place for awhile.

One thing I've found interesting is seeing entertainment change into zoom format - because for a long time zoom was a big part of our life. Three highlights reflecting lockdown are:

Cancelled, the series. This is on the web and just a brilliant reflection of lockdown life when the world stopped quite unexpectedly.

Who's Your Baghdaddy, or How I started the Iraq War is now available world wide for streaming. It's a musical comedy that was staged specifically for zoom, so not like watching a play being filmed. Far more engaging and visually enjoyable. Make some time for this one, I loved it.

Wakaalat From Home is a series that was made by zoom in lockdown. I've only started watching it but so far, very funny.

2020 has changed our world view considerably, and it's interesting to see that reflected in entertainment.

What I am loving this week, however, is getting out and about and the hope that eventually it will all change back again....It felt SO good walking up the hill to the theatre for the first time since Feb!

What are you loving this week?

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday


  1. Getting to go out to a place that has been closed all these months is indeed a treat. I'm glad you got to go.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  2. Glad you got to go and support the entertainers. #lovin'lifelinky

  3. Fantastic that you got to go to the theatre! I can't wait till I can again. Thanks for the zoom entertainment links. I'll check them out!

  4. I have not participated in any Zoom entertainment. You are so ahead of the game there! Very fancy new concept. I'll have to check out the links. Do you watch them on a big screen TV? Or do you watch on a device?

    1. Both! Some I watched on the ipad when Husband was watching footy on the tv and the Wakaamat at Home is on Prime so I watch that on the tv...

  5. It really is great to get out and enjoy some things you've missed. We've had our hikes and without those I would have been crazy...or crazier! lol Happy weekend!

  6. I loved going to live theater, and to movies, but in my part of the US I don't think I'll be able to see live shows for a long time. DVD's from the library and streaming will be the only theatrical entertainment for some time to come. sigh...

  7. I'm missing going to the theatre so much. We had four shows booked that have all been cancelled. I can't wait to get back there. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time

  8. I miss going places and seeing things live. Zoom is just never going to cut it for me. Good for you for being able to get out and about a bit #KCACOLS

  9. Pre pandemic my partner and I planned to go to the theatre as we haven't done so together as a couple. I want to go more than ever now xx #KCACOLS

  10. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time.
