Stingy eyes today, sure sign of a good weekend for those who don't suffer from hay fever! I actually don't as a rule, but obviously there is a particular pollen blowing round today that is affecting me.

I don't think hay fever is a problem in Mallorca is it?

Just checked the weather station in the garden and, out of the breeze, in the sun it's 31c at the moment.Wait for the thunderstorm later 'cos this is too good to last.

Hottest day yet today, so spent most of it indoors ironing all the washing I did yesterday! I did cut the grass though as it's supposed to storm tonight or tomorrow of course !

And much the same today again.  Not with the sunshine though! Good day to stay in and paint the kitchen, sort out tiles, do the ironing , write a book, say, lovely weather for ducks,  climb the flipping walls out of frustration!!!!!   >:(

Not even 8am yet and its ridiculously hot! Keeping the blinds down to keep it cooler. And where am I going today? Up town sandal shopping with  my daughter! Kings Road also beckons evidently, for a cheeky spritzer or two! Glad she knows where she is going as I certainly don't! Not expecting a great deal of breeze to get through but a/c in stores will be welcome!  ;)

Great evening was had by all 20,000 people at the O2! They started playing at 8, had a really short break at about 9, then played on til 11. The show itself was faultless , stage was great with lots of movement, brilliant camera work on the screens with interesting video backdrops and lighting. Goodness knows how many guitars they have, but they seemed to change instruments for virtually every number, and these are serious looking instruments of all shapes, sizes and colours. Sound was spot on, no feedback, all jokes and history was heard clear as a bell. No photography was allowed at all and boy, were they hot on that! The playing was amazing, ranging from their very early work, which I admit not to have heard too much of, through to a few of the more commercial numbers which obviously got the crowd up, singing and dancing! A superb 6 piece backing percussion group added to the rounded sound of this great group. Really good interaction with the crowd too. Three encores ending with Desperado and the crowd still went wild! Came out on a high and wanted to buy a T shirt which I would probably never wear, but I wasn't in charge of the purse strings last night!  ::)

Sounds a great evening Bella. Excellent review too! Good value for money as sometimes you can pay a fortune for tickets only to have the artist on for an hour or so.

T shirt probably a good pass! Put the money towards a pair of shoes which you would wear!  ;D

Ha ha BL! I'm on Bella's side here. Shoes much better option than a t shirt! Much better fitting too no doubt!  ;D

Lol! At least they don't shrink in the wash! Read in the paper, with a photo to go with it, that a couple of members were at Paul Mcartneys birthday bash . Doubt that was a dry evening!  ;)
