New Blog

I have decided to set up a separate blog for our holiday photos and once I have that sorted I will post the link. Might take me a little while to organise!!

So we have been back almost a week now.....back to the real world indeed! I was shocked and amazed to discover I did not put on any weight while we were away. That is a minor miracle. Considering all the rubbish we were eating.

I went this morning for my first morning run in about a million years. I really need to get into a routine, so today was the first go! I didn't run for the whole time, but it felt good. I will be able to build myself back up. I've heard that the Bridge to Brisbane has been changed this year, and my parents aren't going to do it, so I am not either, since they were my ride there...anyway, I will be looking for some other runs to get into.

Celine Concert (31st March 2008)

We were picked up by the Limo and taken to the entertainment centre, which was very cool indeed!! Luckily I had the camera in my pocket, as they were searching people and not letting cameras in. They didn't see mine. Once we got through security, we had to find Robyn Bailey from 97.3FM. This was quite easy, since we had just heard her on the radio describing the shoes she was wearing, so we recognised her as soon as she walked through the door. We then had to wait around for a really long time in the foyer. Some Sony people arrived and gave us a sticker to wear, and told us that there would be a group photo taken. Eventually we were taken out into the back stage area. We then waited here near the stage door for a really long time. We saw Anthony Callea (the support act) walk past us and onto the stage to perform, and then he came off stage and walked past again. He really is very short. Then, after standing in the corridor for what seemed like forever, we were taken in to Celine's dressing room to meet her. It was quite something. She was all done up and ready to go on stage. She really had a major presence about her. (I am not a big Celine fan - that's Janet's department, but even for me, it was a big deal). So we got to shake Celine's hand (I think all I said to her was "hello") and then we had to group tpgether for a photo. Janet jumped in immediately and managed to be right next to her, so that was exciting! And then it was all over an we went out to our seats. Janet swapped her ticket back with her Mum, since the ticket Janet had bought was in the third row. The tickets from the radio station were way up high, so Pam & I sat up there and Janet was up the front. I got to try out our new camera's zoomability.
