Hello there! Many "Thanks" for all your kind comments on my last post and "Hello" to a new follower. I have certainly enjoyed the Photography Course and would recommend it. It helped me not only to better understand the camera and its capabilities but it also mentally helped me - being so ill last year with Glandular Fever and secondary infections as it made me have a reason to get out of the house.The course was through an Adult Education Centre and cost £120 for 10 two hour sessions. Worth the money, I think.
Anyhow, what did we get up to on Saturday - Do you know where we were from the above photo?
We were at Wembley Arena - not to watch a football game. Oh, no we were here to see Robbie Williams and his support act, Olly Murs.
This photo was taken on Sunday morning as being so excited the day before I had forgotten! KP is a huge Olly Murs fan and I regretted never having seen Robbie or Take That live when I bought the Robbie Live at Knebworth CD many years ago.
I'm not one of these people who can stand in one spot for hours on end so we ended up paying more money but we did have comfy seats! Most of the time we weren't seated though as we danced our way through the evening.
KP was enthralled with Olly and sang along to his hits songs - Troublemaker in particular, was a favourite.
In the bouncy ball there was a camera so that members of the crowd could later see themselves at Wembley when they accessed Olly Murs Twitter Page. I think that's what he said anyways!
And then Olly Murs left the stage and there was a huge silence and then some yellow smoke appeared.
And Robbie emerged down a zip wire singing none other than - Let Me Entertain You!
And boy entertain us he did. Vocally they were both brilliant but Robbie is a showman too and had the audience in the palm of his hand.
The Robbie face turned into a monkey as he sang - Me and My Monkey.
And then the face turned back into Robbie's and he sang his last song - Angels. As he left the stage the crowd were still singing for at least another five minutes. We sang all the way back to our hotel.
If he ever tours again, we will be first in the queue for tickets.
What else has been happening - well, on our way home on Sunday we stopped at B&Q to buy some paint. Last week I had painted our shed which then made the garage side door look grubby, not to mention the back and front door. So we selected a colour - pillar box red and I have been busy painting and received some assistance from Charlie!
As KP commented when she came home from school yesterday and witnessed this new look - "It looks as if Charlie has dip dyed his beard!"
On Monday night as I was asleep I was awoken to a strange noise - half bark, half howl. I initially thought that it was some youths in drink who were trying to get Charlie and George to bark as sometimes happens on the weekend. Charlie and George however remained completely silent which is unlike them. The noise continued for some time so I thought that I would get up to see what it was - I peered through the curtains and couldn't believe my eyes - there in front of me an animal with a pointy face and pointy ears and a long bushy tail - a fox, making that noise at our cat, Poppy who seemed non-plussed by it all.
I tried to wake the OH up but he was in a deep slumber. So, I watched - the cat went and tucked herself underneath the OH's car next to one of the front tyres. Then to my amazement another fox appeared. I was now getting a bit apprehensive about Poppy but didn't know quite what to do. I was just about to make a noise to try and scare them away when both foxes about turned and ran off and into a nearby housing estate.
The first fox that I saw was huge. The second one was smaller but not a cub. We have lived here for over 15 years and I've never seen foxes outside the house before. I hope this does not become a regular occurrence.
I asked the OH the following day why he thought the dogs hadn't whimpered let alone barked. His reply - "They were probably cacking themselves!" There's not a lot you can say to that!
Until next time,
