Birmimngham

We are in Birmingham for the weekend - it's been great, we're in upgraded rooms at the Metropole which were not even paying for (Hilton points!) the first night we had comp champagne and chocolates, last night two bottles of red wine!!! We spent yesterday wandering round Birmingham city centre, strangely familiar yet unfamiliar, after 17 years!! I have some photos which I will post when I get back. Last night we went to the NEC to see Chris de Burgh, he played for 3 hours straight, thirty songs in all, just amazing, even better than he was last time I saw him, (about 18 years ago...) It's been a great weekend, I couldn't be happier! This morning we are off to our old church, St Giles, wonder what that's like now... Then we will be heading back to Wirral, Sunday trains....

jealousy
shame that being jealous is such a bad thing to be, but I am so jealous! Depsite that, I am still made up that you sound to be having a great time! Having read ringbarks journal too, it sounds like good fun is being had by all. By now you should be at St Giles. Look forward to hearing more soon.

I asked her to keep track of the songs as he was singing them, so we should get a very thorough review.
Songs sung: 30
Songs where he forgot the words in the middle: 1
Encores: 3
Songs from Spanish Train: At least 4
Number of family members who enjoyed the concert immensely: 5
