Those Frustrations Melt Away...

This is actually one of Stewart's birthday presents...

Well, no... not actually me getting a massage (I was a lot more relaxed than I look... he was very good)... but an evening out away from the messy house and the bridesmaids dresses.

There was Pimms

See... I'm not the only one enjoying myself.

There were free samples
(wine, coffee, chilli sauces and ice lollies!!!)

Because we were here on Hampstead Heath at Kenwood House...

to see...

BLONDIE!

We are both fans from way back in 1975
and we weren't disappointed.
They were fantastic!


And although Debbie Harry might not be as sprightly as she once was, she was still pretty amazing! I hope I look that good when I'm 65!

And so now I'm feeling refreshed and ready to tackle another day of satin.
I'm determined they will be finished tonight.

  10. I saw Blondie a few years ago when she was playing at Guilfest. She was indeed AMAZING! I found it quite surreal to hear her voice "in person" - it is even better than records, and she hasn't lost a bit of it! The last song we saw was "Union City Blue" the stage was lit in electric blue, her singing was awsome .. AMAZING!! Sigh .... a very good memory. Replaying your Blondie records at home and remembering the gig, is sure to get you through the rest of the bridesmaid dress chore (as it seems to have turned into ).

  11. I can't believe Debbie Harry is 65! I thought she was younger than me but good for her to still be performing so well. What a great evening for you and Pimms as well :o) Hope you get the job done today.

  17. Just a thimbleful...

    Oh, lovely - I've been to concerts at Kenwood House and it is a super venue. Looks as though you had lovely weather too. I HAVE been known to spend an evening there under a bin bag....

  18. Sounds like a fantastic time out! I'd like to look that good at 65 too...but since I've never looked that good, I'm thinking there's not much hope!!!
