  1. Last night at the O2 was brilliant! Apart from my nearly collapsing, but thanks to the medical for taking care of me. I was let back in nicely in time for Beautiful Day.

      I'm fine now, it was just dehydration. I did lots of jumping about but little access to water. They started at about 7.45-8pm.

      He's a red and green knitted gnome called Geoff. I collected him from the station yesterday.

  3. Today BBC Radio Shropshire confirmed that I can bring one of their knitted gnome mascots with me to the O2 on Sunday They have 2 of these mascots and let regular listeners take them with us on our adventures. I don't know if anyone's ever taken one to a rock concert before. I have to go and pick up the gnome from the studio on Thursday and then I will share the photos etc when I get back.
  4. 6 more sleeps! This is more exciting than waiting for Christmas.

  5. One week! *flails arms and runs around in circles*

  6. I woke up this morning with "The Troubles" stuck in my head. To be fair, it was one of the last songs I listened to last night before I went to bed.
  7. 10 sleeps to go! Getting closer!

  8. Only 2 weeks to go! 14 sleeps! *squeal*

  9. Today was the first of our new weekly arts workshops at the local community centre. We had nearly 40 young people turn up and take part in music, art and creative writing over a 2-hour session. I was leading the writing aspect of it and we had some beautiful pieces of work produced today. Here's hoping that next week will be even better!
  10. 3 weeks and 21 sleeps!

      It will be here before you know it. Have a good time when you go eh. (((hugs))), Lani

  11. I'm hoping to be there now that I'm able to travel down on the Saturday. It's not 100% yet, but fingers crossed
  12. October... needs to hurry up and get here already! Reading about everyone's amazing concert experiences and getting very excited for London!

  13. "Come With Me" by Ricky Martin has been stuck in my head all morning so far. It's the bi-lingual version of the song so I've got a mash-up of Spanish and English lyrics going round and round and round in my head. It's starting to annoy me a bit now...
  14. Congratulations PeterFerris8 on your good results and moving on to the next step of your degree! Today in my local area, we had a Music and Arts festival and I took part, running a creative writing workshop throughout the day. I was nervous as anything as I had only ever been to workshops before, never led one. But it went really well, we got some lovely stories from the youngsters and several of them felt brave enough to read them out to everyone as part of our open mic session. Very happy with how it all went and I hope it will become an annual event.
  15. Happy birthday to our favourite guitarist, the mighty Mr Edge!

  16. As regards social media, the "U2 Friends" group on FB might be a good place to start, nearly 8,000 of us in there. I can post about the event with a link to this thread for people to drop in and register their interest.
  17. I had a day out to Manchester today with my Dad. Among the awesome things I found were the CD singles of Desire, All I Want is You, Angel of Harlem and When Love Comes To Town. And just when I thought it couldn't get any better, in another part of the same shop, we found the 10-disc "Super Deluxe" Achtung Baby box set! It was brand new, still in the wrappers, marked as £80, but when the owner of the shop saw me buying the other 4 U2 CDs, he realised I was a big fan and let me have the set for £60
  18. Congratulations Bluegrace! That is awesome. I will be leading a creative writing workshop at a local arts festival on the 8th of August. I'm a bit terrified as, although I've attended courses and workshops, this is my first time being put in charge of one. Eek!
  19. Rest in peace Jules Bianchi. Formula 1 has been cruelly robbed of a driver who had so much potential.
