Whilst snoozing in the garden last week I received a tweet from the lovely Gemma of Fatfrocks saying that she had won two tickets to see McFly and The Wanted in Blackpool but was unable to go so would I like them! Yes – best tweet ever. Then Rosie of AroseLikeThis who happens to be a huge fan of McFly and boy bands in general tweeted saying she would love to go so I invited her up to Blackpool for a day on boy band goodness.
I met Rosie at the station and we went for some food then joined the longest queue ever in the rain next to the sea. I felt like such a grown up wearing a woolly hat, scarf, and waterproof in the queue amongst teenage girls wearing next to nothing! Whilst in the queue a seagull manages to not only poo on me but Rosie as well but being the prepared grown up I seem to have evolved in to I had tissues and all was okay, then as we walked into the arena the sun came out! Amazing.
I didn’t realise how much of a boy band fan I am until I found myself screaming, jumping and throwing my hands in the air! Rosie impressed me with her extensive boy band knowledge and her ability to shout at the precise moment the rest of the crowd quietens down. We had so much fun dancing around, it was a brilliant day and by the time I got home I had no voice and ached all over. I now have huge crushes on Danny from Mcfly, Siva from The Wanted, and Rosie.
Huge thank you to Gemma and Rosie.
