I’ve blogged before about how I’ve gained so much confidence about going to restaurants on my own and asking for a table for one. Even really busy restaurants can often fit in a solo traveller so there are perks 😊 … plus, with no one to talk to, they probably know that my meal will be far quicker than a table of 8!
Recently, one of my favourite childhood groups, Level 42, has been doing a round of TV and radio interviews. I spent hours listening to their music, especially their 1989 album, Level Best. However, as anyone of a certain age can no doubt relate, I also spent a VERY long time trying to repair those old fashioned music cassettes! Yes, the worn out tape would slowly emerge and start to tie itself in knots. All I needed was a pencil and a lot of patience to slowly encourage the tape back into the cassette, desperately hoping that the music would still play.
Well, Level 42 is going on tour (yay!) and, in November, I’m off to see them at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. There just happened to be a spare seat all on its own next to a column and that will do me very nicely, thank you! Do you find that you may not have heard your favourite childhood songs for many years but, as soon as you do, all the words come flooding back?! Keep it in the Family, The Chinese Way, Love Games and Lessons in Love…just some of the hits where the lyrics have been stored deep inside my brain for the past 30 years!
And with November so many months away, I thought I’d see if there’s anything on there sooner and I managed to grab one of the last few remaining seats for tonight to see the national tour of Mamma Mia. Yes, I’m in that same seat next to the column!
Next weekend, I’ll let you know how Mamma Mia went and also about something that I want to pluck up the courage to do although I’m terrified at the thought. But I’m going to keep you in suspense over that one 😊
Have a great weekend everyone xx
