With a big night ahead it was MOST unfortunate that I woke up at 3am!!!! With sinus pain and a tickly throat there was no way I was going back to sleep, so after 30mins I got up and went downstairs. I did manage to get another hour on the couch around 5am. Since I wasn’t feeling the best Christy was kind enough to make me some French Toast for breakfast. Haven’t had any more ages – and it was so good.
I spent the rest of the morning doing a few jobs, mainly vegging on the couch. But I did enjoy my lunch outside.
And I took an afternoon nap – something I NEVER do but felt was very necessary today. I manged to get about another 45mins.
Then finally it was time to get all dressed up and head to Sydney. My Mum was supposed to be my date (the ticket was actually a Christmas present from her) but she wasn’t up to attending. And Amy was more than happy to take her place.
Still a lot of smoke around.
Even with some traffic getting to Olympic Park we arrived nice and early and had plenty of time to get some dinner.
I was so happy with our seats. With my bad vision I really appreciate being close enough to see facial features :-).
The support act was Timomatic, who I really enjoyed.
Then it was time for Ricky. I’ve been a huge fan for about 15 years and it was great to see him in concert again. The last time was about 12 years ago and I was on crutches with a broken ankle. Obviously I didn’t get to dance the night away that time :-).
Such a great show. He has so much energy and genuinely seemed to be having a good time up there. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a performer so happy. Hope I don’t have to wait another 12 years to see him again!!!
To see more of my day, or to see Ricky in action, be sure to watch my vlog.
