OK here we go :roll:
Arrived at Cardiff roughly about the same time as Gran :roll: only to see her waylaid again by some toy boys, this happened in Holland as well, there he asked her if she'd had a wee, dunno what this one wanted to know I didn't dare ask :shock: but she seemed to be having a whale of a time.
We arrived at the hotel and were well impressed, the receptionist looked at us a bit strange when she realised there were three women and one man in the same room :shock: :shock: with two double beds :P I won't tell you what Jan told her :shock:
We went looking for Sarah and Tanya but they had swanned off somewhere :wink: but Sarah had given us the gen on getting a meal etc etc. that again was very good value :wink:
Well we decied to get ourselves ready before Rob and Clare arrived, we were both snivelling with cold, Jan was worse than me poor bugger :(
Nevertheless we soldiered on :wink: needs must and all that :grin:
Rob I think got lost on the way and arrived a mite late and didn't have time to get changed anyway (Pooh the pong :grin: )
We arrived at the Arena just in time to see Maxi Priest who was great 8) I mean he is no spring chicken is he? but he was prancing round the stage like a good un, and the bloke with him who did a bit of rapping was really good at getting the crowd going, and his son although young, knew how to play the audience as well.
But the moment we were waiting for arrived :wink: and the intro music started ooohh the anticiaption sent shivers down my spine, the set lights came on 8) everything from then on was brilliant 8) the set list was the best I have heard from the new ones to the old, I won't name any of the choons they played, but best of the new ones for me is the first one they played 8) it's wikkid, everything was just perfect and then Norman!!!! this was the icing on the cake WOW! WOW! :grin: Dave, Jan's hubby thought I had gone an a bender, I just could not stand still, I went hoarse with shouting :roll:
I won't even mention the silly buggers fighting :evil: :evil: :evil: but they did not mange to dim the evening for us.
Poor Janice was really poorly by then :( and had decided that she was not coming next night and since I did not know her friend Dawn I did not feel like going either :( and I was going to go home :roll:
Boy am I glad I did not!! as it happens Dawn was a great lady and Clare Rob's wife came, both great fun.
We were in the middle front with Sarah and Tanya this time and A) the boys seemd to sound so much better and B) we were in a much better position 8) 8) and although I was feeling a bit knackered from the previous night, I just could not help myself I still went ape when Norman strutted his stuff :roll: and loved Astro's cool movements around the stage :grin: oh it was all a brilliant two nights 8) 8)
Well worth being knackered for :grin: :grin:
Flew home this afternoon in just under an hour, after first getting on the wrong train to the aiport :shock: not my fault some pratt of a porter sent me to the wrong one :evil:
You Brummies a re so in for a treat as they sound even better at the NEC, but I think they were well pleased with their Welsh welcome :lol: as were the Welsh crowd well chuffed with them 8)

So there you have it :wink:
I forgot to add Brian threw his bottle for me :D :D :D I wanted the towel but beggars can't be choosers :roll:

Just a little note :grin: Ali was looking so good 8) seemed to enjoy every minute of it and walking off before the end of the song seemed to me to be the natural thing to do and he gave the audience the thumbs up as he went :roll: :roll:
