Auntie Jan taking me to see Take That as an early birthday surprise just has to be the best birthday present EVER! Another big surprise was that Uncle Andrew managed to get a ticket at the last minute too and came with us – and what happened to him was stupendous …..!
Travelling to Manchester isn’t really that far but we made sure we set out with plenty of time to spare to avoid the Friday night traffic. Auntie Jan, being Auntie Jan and always thinking of everything, had sorted me out a big bag of pick n’ mix, of which the chocolate toffees were my sweetie of choice for the journey (I had to scrabble right to the bottom of the bag to find them, nom, nom, nom).
We had plenty of time to look around …..
…… to get a programme ….
…. to soak up the atmosphere ….. and have a wee,
…. But, what we all really wanted to do was find our spot in the stadium. ……!!!
