All roads lead to Vienna

Danny won the lottery the other week!

Well, actually he won $1 on it, but for someone who virtually never gambles that’s still an achievement. 🙂

This week, probably to try to boost my spirits a bit, we’ve been having fun planning what we would do if we ever won “big” on the lottery. It’s a good way to get the brain juice flowing, even if only for a short while.

Last night I finally managed to get an evening out to have a few drinks and a game of darts. All in all the whole evening was a disaster, which is really great seeing as how I only get out about once a year other than when wifey is away. Such is the way of things right now.

So tonight, after another row with wifey, I needed a lift. I started by trying to find out if there are any tea dances that happen locally, without much success, and then hit youtube for some good old Viennese Waltz music.

It really doesn’t get much better than André Rieu, and this magical performance of what I’ve always considered to be the most beautiful piece of music ever written adds another item to the post-lottery wish list … best tickets in the house at a performance of Strauss at the beautiful  Empress Sisi’s castle in the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna.

Of course I’d need to go shopping for a stunning outfit, shoes, jewellery, wig and everything first, and have the greatest make-over in history … but we could afford it. 🙂
