What a Christmas Present!!

I have had the most fab two days in Manchester with my hubbie, Chris!
For Christmas Chris bought me tickets to go and see Jamiroquai in concert at MEN - I cannot tell you how long I have wanted to see Jay Kay in concert. I have been a huge fan of his music (and him - yummy!!) for a long, long time. It was always the music I listened too when getting ready for a night out with the girls - always gets me dancing and singing at the top of my voice!

So, we set off on Tuesday morning - after sorting Ben out for a few days with my mum and dad - to spend the day around Manchester before getting ready in the afternoon to go for a few drinks first before the concert. A few Corona's later I was so excited so off we went to the MEN.

Nothing like afternoon drinks with the sun shining too!

Me & Chris - waiting for the show!

My programme - some stunning photos in there!

The show - not many pictures taken as I was too busy dancing! Danced for the whole show - how people can keep still to Jamiroquai is beyond me!!!
We were so close too - amazing seats!

It was amazing - a mix of his old stuff and new! Loved every single minute of it and did not want it to end. It had too though at about 11pm - so we went off to China Town for a meal to end the night before going back to the hotel.

The next day we had a lie in before meeting a friend in Manchester for a catch up - of course, at Starbucks!!!

We then set off home early afternoon stopping on the way for an early tea - Chris finished off with an amazing pudding!! Ah well, it was a treat! He He

We got back to Mum and Dad's to find our little boy absolutely shattered from a day out with his Mamah and Bampa - he had been out walking for about 3 hours and had a little snooze of half an hour on the way home. He soon woke up as soon as he saw us though and we were taken off into the back garden to help him water the plants - he loves my mum and dads back garden!

It was such the best end to a fab few days - me and Ben in our bare feet watering plants and splashing each other with water!

Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine too!

Will be back tomorrow with another update as more to tell you but shattered now and off to bed!!

Night Night Everyone

Sweet Dreams
