Sia Furler and Krispy Kreme :)

Well Thursday was the day Me and Dave went to see Sia Furler live at Roundhouse in London and it was absolutely amazing! We got the train down to London and headed straight for Krispy Kreme. I've been obsessed about going to Krispy Kreme ever since I seen a picture of someone I know on Facebook with a box of doughnuts from there. We got a box of 12 assorted doughnuts, headed for our hotel in Islington and tucked in. They are the best doughnuts I have ever had and they were like doughnut heaven! Anyway back to telling you about Sia. The doors opened at 8pm and we were almost at the front of the que at 5.30 as I wanted to make sure we were right at the front of the stage (I had actually had a nightmare about not being able to see the stage the previous night, as mad as it sounds lol). Anyway to my relief we were right on the front railing and had an amazing view. The stage was beautiful, covered in crochet and knitted blankets and on the back wall was quite a large crochet blanket with her name Sia made up of pom poms. Sia came out in a dress that was made of red and white barrier tape that was half crocheted which was gorgeous. When she came on for the encore at the end she was wearing a set of "bubble wings" on her back that spun while she sang with an air fan behind her which blew masses of bubbles above the crowd. I expected the gig to be good but it was even better and we had a great time. Once we got back home the next day I was on the internet and noticed that she is playing another gig in October in London again but this time at The Troxy, needless to say I quickly booked 2 tickets to see her again :)

Sia's dress was crocheted with red and white barrier tape.

The stage was covered in crochet and knitted blankets and pom poms spelling out Sia on the back wall.

Not a great photo but you can see the wings on her back. They had bubble discs in them and a motor on her back pumped bubble solution onto them with the fan behind blowing through the wings as they spun around. Amazing!!

Our delicious Krispy Kreme doughnuts! mmm

Summer is here! Yay :)

Well its very warm today here in the UK (reading 24 deg/75f on the house thermometer), so much in fact that I have stored away all of my winter clothes and swapped them for my summer stuff and I'm now wearing my shorts and vest top and have applied my fake tan :) I dug out all my summer skirts from a storage box under my bed and tried them all on just to make sure they still fit. I was convinced they wouldn't fit and crossed my fingers in hope as I tried each one on and very luckily they all do, Phew! So I headed for the bathroom scales thinking I can't have put much weight on over the winter if my skirts still fit me but I was wrong! :( I've put on 10 pounds (4.5 kg) since last summer!!! Im really going to have to get back into my exercise regime but I just can never find the time to fit it in. I have just bought a Nikon D90 DSLR camera and I'm trying to learn how to use it to retake all of my jewellery pics and then theres painting the hallway to be done, which I'm planning on doing at the weekend.

Thursday 27th May me and my husband Dave are off to London and staying over for the night as I have got us tickets to see Sia Furler which Im really excited about and I really hope the weather stays as nice as it is today. Friday 28th the next day is the anniversary of when we first started seeing each other and will be 17 years, only feels like yesterday though, time flies so quickly doesn't it? So when we get back I will let you know how it went and post some pics too.
