yesterday morning was rather out of the ordinary here at the roundhouse
my sister arrived at 8.20am a time when she is usually at her desk
we then set up my desk, sweeping my piles of books and papers to one side we recruited swampys help...
set up a second lap top
one internet phone
one landline phone
three mobile phones
all with different numbers pre-set
i counted down the seconds to 9am from when we spent 45 minutes~yes 45 whole minutes on re-dial...
are we crazy?
more than likely...in a frenzy of excitement we ended up with tickets for both Manchester and Wembley in june of next year, a week apart. the wembley concert also clashes with the final weekend of wimbledon so if we are lucky enough to get tickets for that we will be busy bee's and more than likely need to keep smelling salts about our person...i can just see myself in my green boots and edwardian waistcoat, carpet bag in hand...
yes, way back in the mists of time they were considered a cheesy boy band and i was never a huge fan but last years concert we went to was just an amazing show and certainly changed my mind about them.
