Fabulous Night With UC!

I was treated, yes me, treated.

After going through a rough patch over the past few months (two miscarriages, need I say more?),  I received a call from my Uncle Chris, who surprised me with tickets to see Andrea Bocelli at the MEN Arena in Manchester.  WOW! I have always loved Andrea, my husband and I class ‘Canto Della Terra’ as our song, goosebumps guaranteed every time.

Unfortunately, he didn’t sing Canto Della Terra, but he was superb, the guest singers, the atmosphere, couldn’t ask for more.

It was lovely to spend time with my Uncle, something we haven’t done for a long time.  Thank you UC x

If you’ve never heard the song before, here you go, enjoy!



Not much to say today, suffering with the onset of flu me thinks, so so tired and no energy at all. Now that’s it’s getting dark early doesn’t help either!

Well I can’t leave you picture less, so to cheer myself up mainly, here’s my favourite photo of all time!! Taken three years ago on the beautiful isle of Gozo, taken about 4am just as the sun was rising behind one of the many churches on the island.  My family is originally from Malta and on days like this when it’s cold, damp, dark and i’m not feeling clever, there’s no other view I’d rather look at, photo or in real life…….

I can’t wait any longer!

The 7th October seems so far away, we’ve waited so long and now it’s nearly here!  We’re talking about the Michael Buble ‘Crazy Love’ tour for which Mr Bangles and me have tickets and cannot wait!

Mr Bangles (aka Tino/Martin/Martino/Martini/Puddin/Pickle – depends on the mood) and I got married on May 8th this year and of course, our first dance was to Buble’s Hold On .  There isn’t a song that I don’t like, an album of his I don’t play over and over and over again, I love his unique voice, his personal touch to every song and to listen to him when he is singing live, well, there’s nothing better.

So from today, I am officially counting down…. 8 sleeps!!

And for those of you who are interested…presenting Mr and Mrs Bangles!
