Take That!

Wow! I had the most fantastic day and evening yesterday.

For our birthdays this year our Mum and Dad bought my sister and me tickets to see 'Take That' at Wembley. Pippa's friend did all the organising and there were 6 of us who went together.

My day started by driving to my sister's house and then my darling brother-in-law took us to the local pub, The Fishery, collecting two more friends on the way. Once he had dropped us off he went and collected the final two and brought them to join us. We spent a pleasant afternoon sitting by the canal, having a light lunch and sipping cooling drinks!

We were then collected by a chauffeur and driven to Wembley. He dropped us a 10 minute walk away from the Stadium, so after a quick toilet break in ASDA we made our way there.

Our seats were up high! Not as high as they might have been, but still pretty high!

Fortunately though we had a good view of the screen, as although we could see the stage really well, the band did look like ants!
This was the first concert I have ever been too - pretty sad I know, but that's life! It was absolutely brilliant. The 'Pet Shop Boys' were the support act and they were pretty good, but Take That had to be heard/seen to be believed. From the moment they came on stage until they left we abandoned our seats and stood and danced. Robbie had a solo slot, but to be honest, my favourite songs were the old ones and the ones done by just the four - I am not that keen on the new songs with the five of them, apart from  'The Flood' and 'Eight Letters' which I really like.

After a fantastic day we finally got back to my sister's house at 12.45am and fell into bed. I spent some time with my nieces first thing this morning and then it was back home to do jobs. I then treated myself to some scrapping time this afternoon and made this layout using Shimelle's 4x6 photo love layout for June.
We were lucky to be given a promotional neck tag from Samsung which was basically printed ribbon which as soon as I saw it knew that it would be perfect for scrapping purposes!
