It has been a huge weekend at Casa de Glowless!
I've celebrated a birthday, had mastitis (TMI? Sorry), gone ten-pin bowling, almost broken a tooth on a non-pitted olive on a pizza (seriously, why put olives with pits on a pizza? That's just asking for trouble), celebrated Christmas1.0 with my family and Tricky got his first tooth!
But the most memorable, amazing and sore feet inducing part of the weekend was going to see U2 with Aunty Penny! It was so nice of them to come to town for my birthday (and super nice of Aunty Penny to buy me a ticket for said birthday).
It was unbelievable! The stage was totally awesome and looked like it was straight out of War of the Worlds. If Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning had popped up I would not have been surprised at all.

Other than "Elevation", the best bit was when Bono compared himself to David Boon and a massive "Boonie" chant echoed round the stadium. I had no idea U2 fans were such bogans - I fitted in really well.
But Aunty Penny and I were a little bit naughty...
We bought a bottle of water - but there were big signs up saying that we couldn't keep the bottle caps. That it was a request "from the band". Hrmmm, how am I supposed to jump up and down, singing my lungs out if I'm also being careful not to spill my water?
What if, in the hype, I flicked water on someone? Perhaps mosh-rage would ensue? There was only one solution... hide the bottle cap. I am totally hard core, sticking it to The Man.
I know, I live life on the edge. Not The Edge*, he's still in town but I'm pretty sure that'd get me arrested.

So with a concert and a teething bubba I've had about ten hours sleep since Thursday night. My eyes are hanging out of my head. But with my new GHD from Map Guy, at least my hair looks pretty.
*For the uninitiated, 'The Edge' is the name of the guitarist from U2.
