The Perils of Alcohol - Part Deux

Monday, April 01, 2013

I've just read Chicchantal's latest blog and decided, cheekily, to nick the title. I am currently sat here, almost head-in-hands, lamenting "why oh why" to myself, whilst ruing the day last April that my husband persuaded me to join him in a light libation. From what I remember, it was a sunny, warm Sunday afternoon. We'd enjoyed a pleasant Sunday lunch during which we'd shared a very gluggable bottle of red. We were both feeling decidedly mellow - and that was when our daughter struck. She knows just how to pick her moments....

Fast forward to today. Another very pleasant Sunday in April, only this time I'm stone cold sober and wondering how I ever agreed to take her to a One Direction concert. Tomorrow we will be setting the alarm for 5.30am in order to catch the 6.30 train to Brussels, transferring on to Eurostar for the journey under the sea to That London. From there we will be joining the throngs on the tube to the O2 Arena where we shall be part of a 15000 strong crowd of screaming teenyboppers (chaperoned on the whole by their mothers, I suspect, as under 16's aren't allowed in unaccompanied). Joy.....

She's asked me what I'm wearing. Apart from earplugs, I'm not sure yet.

Edit: Of course I realise that it's Monday today and I'm not in the slightest bit confused by the Easter weekend.....(senior moments? Moi?)

    Oh my goodness.... emoticon A One Direction concert! Be prepared to stand the whole concert if you want to see anything for one thing and ear plugs are good. Wear comfy clothes and shoes or maybe steel toed boots, in case of trampling of feet from rushing teens! emoticon The wine may be a good idea afterwards, just a little to calm the nerves! emoticon
Concerts are fun, but they make me a nervous wreck! I suppose that is why I haven't been to one in 12 years!
Have fun and good luck! emoticon

    Earplugs sounds like a great idea! When in doubt, let her pick your outfit - parents can be sooo embarrassing! LOL
