Hot Rod

Wow.........where do I start to explain last night :)

The beginning would be a good place I suppose with the arrival of an email offering me complimenary tickets to see Rod Stewart in Birmingham...............yes they were FREE!! Next was to find a plus one (hubby is in France this week) and I remembered someone talking about Rod at the weekend, that someone turned out to be Jackie Geiring who almost hit the floor when I asked her to come with me.

So freebie voucher in hand I would have been happy with a seat anywhere so you can imagine my shock when I collected my tickets and found we were sitting 11 rows from the stage.

As for the show, one word........Amazing!! Rod put on one hell of a show, his energy (you would forget his age) husky vocals, fabulous mix of the old and the new songs, you can tell he loves his  audience and simply gets a kick out of being on stage. A truly nostalgic evening singing along to all of those songs that we grew up with, no wonder Jak almost lost her voice :)
This has to have been one of the best evenings I've had in ages, free tickets, some of the best seats in the house, great company (loves ya Jak) and a cracking performance from the one and only Hot Rod Stewart.

I want to be on the losing side

Life throws you curve balls sometimes that knock you off line,and there have been some pretty big ones around lately. So, the only way to deal with a load of balls is to get back on your feet and dust yourself off, and get yourself a giant sized net to catch anything life throws at you.

Top of the list this weekend is fat club, aka Slimming World. I must be on a  winning streak with the pounds I've gained lately so after a long a enlightening chat the girls from group the other night I'm gonna bat this ball out of the field. Joining in the fun are Tamsin, Theresa, Lisa, Tracey, Kam and Yvonne (for starters) and we're all going to give this a damn good try.

Might start by making my way through this box of delicious strawberries :)

Will I be a loser this week?? Watch this space to find out x

Nashville, wouldn't be Nashville without you

At least that's what Tim McGraw says, and Nashville is just the place to be this week as the 2013 CMA Music Festival gets underway. The place is buzzing right now with so much musical talent that it's driving me crazy that we're not least not this year ;)

Here's a few of the reasons why I love this place so much

Keith Urban with Lennon and Maisy Stella
Lady Antebellum in playful mood

Lady Antebellum in rehearsals with Darius Rucker

Luke Bryan
Better start saving up if we're going to join in with the excitement next year.

The Art Of Persuasion

I can't think of a reason not to do this anymore, I've got time on my hands and things to share so what better way to get it out there than to blog it.
So here it is, my second attempt at a blog, the first one lost its way after about half a dozen posts but this time I should be better, and it's all thanks to the gentle persuasion of my mate Jakkii Geiring

Stick with me, this is not going to be the busiest of blogs, but I'm up for a challenge. Thanks Jak, what have you let me in for
