Looking for Treasure

The threat of a torrential rain didn't stop us taking a trip to Blists Hill Victorian Town in Ironbridge for their Treasure Island Weekend. Fortunately the rain gods were looking down on us and we only had one small shower to contend with.

There were activities all around this recreated town to keep the boys entertained, an old fashioned fun fair, searching for treasure on a pirate map, candle dipping, singing sea shanties, traditional fish and chips, chasing pirates and a performance of a scene from Treasure Island. A fabulous day out for all the family.

A Hot Summer Night with Rascal Flatts

I will only succeed with this blog if I make regular posts................... consider that a telling off Annie.

So here goes, with another musical feast for you. Still buzzing from the Rod Stewart concert a couple of weeks back we set off for the big smoke, this time getting back to my real Country roots, the artist of choice being Rascal Flatts performing to a sold out audience at the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire

We've waited a long time to see these guys perform in the UK and it was well worth every minute. Opening support acts Jill Johnson and Laura Bell Bundy set us off to a good start, with the latter getting members of the audience on stage to line dance.


Then it was time for the boys themselves to take to the stage and they certainly didn't disappoint. The room was rocking as they sang their way through their back catalogue of hits, throwing in one or two tracks from their latest album Changed for good measure. I just love how the audience sings along to every song, God Bless The Broken Road, My Wish, Life is a Highway, Stand, Changed and Fast Cars and Freedom, and of course Summer Nights. Fabulous night from start to finish :)

Fingers crossed it won't be too long before they come back............are you watching Country 2 Country?
