How great thou art.

Hmmmm what should I talk about today?.....

Hows about ELVIS!

I went to the 2012 Elvis in concert tour at Wembley on Saturday night and it was bloody brilliant.  For those who haven't heard of the tour it basically is a video projected Elvis (footage from his shows) singing with the original former band mates playing live on stage.  Those musicians are no spring chickens now by my god they can sing/play.

In his lifetime Elvis only ever toured in America and Canada, a world tour was an unrequited dream for him (and us his fans) so this tour is doing for Elvis what he never got to do while he was alive.

It was a fabulous night of great music but even better was the atmosphere, thousands of Elvis fans under one roof!

There is nothing better than people watching at an Elvis gig. There were 70 year olds wearing head to toe '68 special' leather, women adorned with pictures of the King, teddy boys, rockabilly gals and lots and lots of dyed black quiffs! 

So to all of those I had a chat to on Saturday night that may have found there way here - a huge hello, thanks for making it a brilliant and beautifully eccentric evening.

Big Love and Long Live the King!

Back from the dead!

Hello all! Have you missed me? ;o) 

Sorry I've been away from blogland for a little bit, been blooming crazy in "real" life the last few weeks. I seriously want to kick natures butt for the "viral gastroenteritis" bug, its not only got my son twice but also me!  There is only so much puke I can deal with and I'm sure I've had my share now for 2012.  So enough of the grim stuff, how are you all doing? I'll be making my way around all your blogs to catch up over the weekend :o)

I've really got to get back into the swing of things with taking pictures of my thrifty adventures so for now I'll just leave you with this which gave me a belly laugh in a vintage shop in Brighton:

Honest gov i didn't lay a finger on it! (I'm not convinced however that others have followed the rules...)

Big Love to you all!
