Weekend fun

My mum and I went to see Bryan Adams at Sheffield Arena last night.

Really good show. I've seen him twice before, years and years ago when the KC Stadium in Hull was new and people actually came here, and then a few years later in York. The York show was amazing, it was just him, without his band in a tiny little venue. He took requests from the audience. He took a few requests last night too, actually, when he came on for the encore; he stayed on for over half an hour, just him and his guitar.

I can't even remember all the songs he did, because he was on for about two and a half hours. All the well known ones though, and quite a few off the new album.

Hilarious moment of the gig - he got some girl from the audience to dance all the way through one song and had her on the screen behind him, partway through, the... rather large... guy behind her started doing a striptease! Which of course Bryan Adams thought was hilarious, he stopped singing and said "Welcome to Sheffield everyone!"

We met up with my mum's cousin and her husband before the show. They weren't going, but we met up for some food at Chiquito. I've not seen them in quite some time. I don't know them especially well, but we used to go on holidays together when I was a kid, my mum and dad and us kids, them two and theirs.

After the show we went back to the hotel for a few drinks, then this morning we went to Meadowhall on the way home, not for any particular reason, just because we were nearby. But you can't go to Meadowhall without going to the Disney Store. Going to the Disney Store is never a good idea for me though, so I came out with a couple of t-shirts and this fairly awesome BB-8 suitcase, which was on offer, (I did need a little suitcase, though this wasn't exactly as practical as I might have gotten at Domo!) while my mum was unable to give into the temptation to spoil her grandkids, with a Rapunzel press up dress for Poppy and a really cute Finding Nemo swimsuit for Hazel.

All in all, a weekend well spent!

We have a dress down day at work tomorrow to raise money for Alzheimers research. I might wear one of my new t-shirts. Maybe the Captain America one.
