What a weekend!!!

Why is it, that everything comes at once!

Well this weekend for us, was just crazy ... but crazy good. I’ve managed to capture a couple of photos to share with you, but sorry they were taken on my phone or in semi darkness.

The first well, what can I say – we were invited by one of Simon's clients to see the amazing Elton John .... now awesome is a word I rarely use, as I think it's used too often, and far too easily, but I can honestly say he was AWESOME! First we had dinner at the Ritz! ... I know, how cool is that! And then we were whisked off by taxi to the Royal Opera house, where for one night only – Elton John and Ray Cooper, in aid of the Royal Academy of Music, preformed! He was on stage from about 7:15 until about 9:30 – and throughout the evening, he just sang or played the piano ... no needless chatter – just pure entertainment. You forget what an amazing pianists he is! A true entertainer!
But amazingly enough that was just the start of our wonderful weekend. Yesterday we attended a charity ball, at the Plaisterers’ Hall, in the City of London – oh and it was such a beautiful and fun evening. In attendance was the Lord Mayor, and entertainment was from the Royal Marines Band and two magicians. We ended the evening with dancing ... it was so glamorous and fun, and then to top it off .. the real cherry on the top, so to speak. As it turned midnight, we went into Simon’s Birthday, so more champagne followed - and the band sang Happy Birthday to him.


So today was celebrated with family, which is just how birthdays should be.

All in all, an amazing weekend ...right, now back to real life!
