Festivities were well and truly in full swing this week . On Friday night my friend Palmer-Vi had invited a few of us round to her house for a Christmas Jumper and Prosecco night. Hello – Friday night with Friends, Christmas jumpers and Prosecco???????? I was so there!. We had a brilliant night , and we got a brilliant photo –
Then Monday night OMG!!!! , so along with my sister Lynsey and a few friends , we had tickets to go see the Shires. They were playing the Sage at Gateshead. If you have never been to a gig there before and you get the chance, it is an incredible venue . Lynsey and I went armed with our Cd’s in the slight hope we may get them signed. We had just the most brilliant night. First off Myself, Lynsey , Emma and Joanne started in the Pitcher and Piano on the Quayside for a couple glasses of Prosecco – hey it is Christmas after all!. After that we went off in search of food and found ourselves at Sabatinis – a lovely Italian restaurant on the Quayside.
We then had to race along the Quayside and over the Millenium bridge to meet our other friends Joanne and Jonny as I had all the tickets. We had fab seats in a Box on the side of the stage. The band were amazing !!!!!!!. After it finished, Joanne D and Jonny headed home. Meanwhile Emma, Lynsey, Joanne N and I headed to the bar for a final glass of Prosecco , we were really hoping to try and catch the band. No sign of them however and the girl on the merchandise stall, said they had left already.
We then went off in search of our taxi and whilst looking, we walked past the stage door and we saw a big bus, Joanne jokingly said “well we can just get a ride on the tour bus”, I just glanced at the stage door and saw Ben from the band ! well I was like they are there and off I went , with the others following . Both Ben and Crissy were there and were sooooo lovely despite my fan girl babbling eek , we got our photo taken and got our cd’s signed! – even now a couple days later I am still on a high from meeting them!.
A brilliant week and I’m almost done with my Christmas shopping, just a couple more to get and then I am done!. next week it a super busy one , with lots going on. check back next week for my next blogmas update.
