Hello. Yes, it has been some time since I did a regular post here – a couple of years I believe. In case you aren’t following my YouTube channel or Instagram account I thought I’d do a bit of an update for you before I endeavour to get back on the blogging bandwagon.
As you can see the family has grown somewhat. Christy is 17.5, now driving and has started at TAFE doing a Territory Preparation Course.
Athena will be 20 next week, has an (in training) service dog, Koda, and is starting University this week. They have also recently gotten engaged to the lovely Ellie (though the wedding isn’t being planned for a few years yet).
My life is still spent dealing with fibromyalgia and adjusting to life without kids in regular 9-3 schooling. Kevin is a working for a company (having sold his about 18months ago). And we are still travelling, both in Australia in our motorhome, and overseas.
I feel like I have a lot to catch you up on but I’ll leave it here for now. If you have any questions or want to know about anything in particular, please let me know and I’ll write more about it.
I had been lucky enough to get a ticket to see Robbie Williams as a birthday present from my Mum. By myself, which I don’t mind doing (though it is always better with a friend).
I had only just discovered Lawson about a month ago (via a Youtube interview) and was THRILLED when I found that had just arrived in Perth as the support act for Robbie Williams. To be honest as just as excited to see them perform, as I was to see Robbie. And they did not dissapoint. I sang along and took plenty of video and photos. And felt so sorry for all the people not yet inside to listen to them.
Then they announced you get their CD signed. Of course, I had buy one, even though I already had all their music. I got to chat with Andy (lead singer) who was surprised I already knew who they were before this concert. It was such a step out of my comfort zone to do this but the guys were so nice and friendly (in the few brief minutes I got to chat with them while they signed my CD.
As I was leaving I was telling Andy that I had been just as excited to see them perform as I was Robbie and he told me “don’t tell Robbie” :-).
I was on such a high after meeting them, but the night just kept on getting better. And Robbie was truly an awesome performer. Last time I’d seen him (about 10 years ago) we were SOOOO far from the stage.
He had Lawson back on stage to perform a few songs with him. And I loved how much support he gave to the band (here and on social media).
It was such a wonderful and special night. I slipped out during the last song and beat the rush back to and out of the carpark :-).
