Rocking Your World Friday

Back to Rock My World on Friday. Been MIA for the last month, I think. Sorry Virginia! I have been popping by to say 'hello!' to the rockettes in between!

Any hoo... I think you all know what or should I say who has been rocking my world this week! I had a fabulous time at Sir Gary Lord of the Barlow's concert. I screamed, I sang and I danced myself silly. I annoyed the folk behind me by standing up to do all of this - but seriously, who goes to a concert to sit down? And it is not as if I was the only person standing (refer to previous photos in previous posts and there are many of both photos and posts!).

So.. I kind of found 'me' again as I always do at these things. I love 'events' and I am a little dizzy and bonkers and I just really don't care what folk think when I am having a blast at something like this - I just go for it. So that is the really rocking thing I take from the Captain's concert... I should not care what people think... if I am not hurting anyone, I should just go for it... and I am not that bad really.

Now do you want a funny story? Eeee what am I like. Right, well I can't operate an iphone - they are too slidey for my fat fingers. So I have a Blackberry with a qwerty keyboard. It is a very good Blackberry with lots of features that I don't know how to use and it is cleverer than me and will someone please tell me what I am supposed to do with BBM?! I had my Blackberry at the concert. I had it in my hand waving it around taking photos and videos (dreadful quality considering it is supposed to be so good but never mind). Well I was a bit distracted as I am sure you can imagine.

Now you think I am going to say that it flew out of my hand and landed on the stage or in the audience, don't you. Oh no... that would be too easy. What I did was forget to lock the keyboard in my excitement. I was holding it in my sweaty hand squeezing a keyboard letter and the green dial key at the same time.
Without realising.
At about 10pm.
When Gary (ahhhh) was singing Rule The World.
While I was squawking and screaming loudly.
At the top of my voice.
Inadvertently telephoning a male colleague.
Who is technically a boss.
For ten minutes.
I only discovered this the next morning when I checked my call log. EEEK! I had to text a garbled apology. Well, he knows I am daft already.

Other rocks...
I love lego. I think Santa brought lego for me really!
I love hex bugs - they are brilliant!
I love laughing! Need to make time to have a laugh every day.
I love my family. I am really lucky and blessed to have the crew that I have with their unending support.
Oooh and we featured on the front page of UKScrappers this week. There is a post earlier in the blog if you want to have a look.

Got to finish with a video. It is rubbish quality (blooming expensive Blackberry which is cleverer than me. Grrr!). But it is so good - Click here for everyone doing the Never Forget thing that you are supposed to do... and me caterwauling in the background. LOL!

  1. Oh booooooo to phoning the boss lol......Yeay to sir Gary of Barlow. and wooo for Lego.....hours,of fun. I hope you have a most glorious and singing and dancing fun filled 2013


  2. Oh that had me smiling, loving the idea of you phoning a boss during the concert LOL - what are you like!!!!

    Glad that Sir Gary has helped considerably rock your world this week!

    I love lego too, unless it's under my feet when I've no shoes on - then not so much.

    Hope you are having a great Friday


  3. Oh I am giggling with you at your exploits. My last concert (also horrible photo/video quality on a iphone, I think it's the lighting at the concert) I was trying to video a couple of songs to share with the kids when I got home. Upon playback however, it was discovered I was singing along at the top of lungs and although at the concert my voice was lost in the din, on my iphone I was the star of a very off key, raspy show! Next time, I need to remember to clam up if I'm going to record. Also, I want to tell you to embrace your skill to let go and have fun when you are so inspired. I have the hardest time letting go, even though I know it's irrational. Yours is a gift, keep it up!

  4. Did you manage to catch Sir Gary on TV - "Pray" with James Corden was fab...and I did the 'Never Forget' stuff even though I was sitting in my lounge LOL.

    Ooops to the call to boss (made me giggle) and congrats to the post on UKS.

    I hope 2013 continues to be the fun and enjoyable year that has started for you.

  5. You had me at Gary Barlow - wowzers!!!! How funny that you shared your experience with your boss ;D

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year!


  6. Oh that video is brilliant - you can HEAR how happy you are. I agree with Sabrina - I have the same trouble with letting go - you embrace it :D
