He wears it well

a Rodtastic evening...
you wear it well!

Have l told you lately?

hot legs!

the crooner
 and who stole the show?
contrived or no, 
his son 5 year old Alastair brought on a drawing for Daddy
into the mike he said 'hello Newcastle'
biggest cheer of the night!


  1. Can't go wrong with a Rod Stewart concert! Looks like you had an amazing time- good for you!!

  2. He is one of the creme de la creme of singers. I would have loved to have been there! Looks like you had good seats too.

  3. Glad you had such a great time!

  4. I just popped over from The Fifty Factor. You are a terrific read!
    I'll be back when I can spend more time. I must go...and join in the drama of my teens!

  5. Rod will be rocking right into the night forever....What an amazing entertainer.... one of my all time favourites!

  6. That goes to show, men can procreate ( and sing rock and roll ) forever!

  7. Rod Stewart has a FIVE year old! Where have I been :-)
    Glad you had fun.

  8. Aw how it brought the house down x

  9. Always had a soft spot for him ever since I saw the Faces EGBDF tour.

    Sounds like a great evening.

    Mad x

  10. I have a CD of Rod singing standards .. love it

  11. So glad you had a fab night out :-)

  12. I saw in The Journal the yesterday that Rod had been to Newcastle, I bet it was a great show.

    You can't beet a good old'n..!

  13. Well, certainly glad you had a great time! "Handbags & Gladrags" was always a favorite, but I sort of lost hope for him ever putting out anything I'd care about again after "Hot Legs". Not my cup of tea :-)

  14. Lovely! Looks like you had a great evening!

  15. So, even old folks can still rock, huh? Sounds like a great time.

  16. I am not envious.


    I would have loved to be there, though! ;-)

  17. I feel as if I were there - I wish I had been, ma chere! Beautiful, atmospheric pictures and great seats! Fab! xox

  18. Totally, totally awesome, Saz...I'm almost jealous...but so glad YOU got to enjoy the show! You deserve EVERY happiness that comes your way! Love, Janine XO

  19. Thanks so much for sharing photos - I hope to be seeing his show at Edinburgh Castle soon...can`t wait...he`s always been such a charmer!

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
