One of the better things of being off work, on sick leave, meant that I could go on the computer at 9 o'clock on Thursday morning and purchase a ticket to go and see Fleetwood Mac at the LG Arena in September. It's cost an arm and a leg for the ticket but sooooo worth it - I've loved Fleetwood Mac for years and who knows how many more times, that they will tour, (they're in their 60's now) so I took my chance, paid my money and that's it now...... I'm going to see them.
I've also recently had a new car, it's a Toyota Cruiser (it's slightly higher and looks more robust than the old one, but it's not a gas guzzling 4 x4) , it's a proper motorway car and I feel so much safer manoeuvring through Junction 9 and 10 of the M6 every night!
Plus we were lucky with the Sun Holiday and we have a week (well Monday to Friday) booked at the beginning of October, for St Agnes, in Cornwall - we've paid the extra money and upgraded the accommodation and we're taking Daisy and Tillie (our dogs with us) as they will be OK by then for going on the beaches in Cornwall. (Can't take dogs on some beaches in Cornwall until 1st October)
Plus I was looking on the Internet and found a beautiful little chalet in Hayle, which looks straight onto the beach and across St Ives Bay, for a full week in May. It was a reasonable cost and we managed to book it.
It's got a balcony, just built for whiling away the hours with a glass of wine in hand and a good book to read! - we're already counting the weeks down to that one (13 weeks next Saturday!)
We also have some further good news (but I'll save that for another day)
Till then - here's Steve Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac singing a beautiful song
