Tonight I’m dining en plein air at a performance of the Illyria Theatre Company’s production of Pride and Prejudice at Belton House, which I’m sure you all remember was the setting for Rosings in the BBC’s adaptation of Pride andPrejudice starring Colin Firth and Jennifer Erle.

(Can you spot Mr Darcy’s Bedroom? Here’s a hint: its not where you’d expect it to be !)

The weather looks set fair for once ,so we will only take flasks of hot chocolate,  fleece blankets and not go sofar as to pack sleeping bags…..this is England after all ;-) I’ll report back tomorrow.
