What an eventful weekend is behind me. (Although I am longing for some downtime because I’m starting to feel like I’m getting too old for this shit. A book, a blanket and some tea, with more than some rum, would be perfect right now. 29 going on 92.)
On Saturday I went to see the freaking Rolling Stones in Austria. I might be more of The Beatles fan but you just have to see the old pebbles before you can. 😉 My boyfriend got us the tickets for our 10th anniversary and we were super excited to go with our friends. We were having so much fun, the excitement kept rising with every passing second leading up to the show. We couldn’t wait for it to start.
When we arrived, we stopped to take photos (because if you don’t do that, what’s the point in going anywhere 😉 ) and a British guy approached us and actually gave us tickets for pit access. Pit access!!! We were literally 3 metres from the stage. It was unreal, we couldn’t believe our luck. Still can’t.
We drove for hours and you better believe I had a book with me and stole some time between engaging in conversation and drinks with people who didn’t understand that an open book means “Not to be bothered!” 🙂 .
I slept the entire first half of Sunday and then I was glued to the TV screen to watch Slovenia win the title of European basketball champions. I was so nervous and very hopeful, and now I am beyond proud of the team, still screaming at spontaneous moments, like a deranged person. There is nothing like feeling the whole country (all 2 million of us) stand behind a cause, wanting the same thing, fighting against whoever wants to take it from you, physically or mentally. But there was no way we would lose – we got a Dragon and The Chosen One in our team. 🙂
How I managed not to lose my voice again is beyond me! There is nothing ladylike about me when I’m cheering on whoever I’m rooting for; all elegance goes out of the window. Put a blond wig on the Hulk, maybe some mascara too, and there I am.
I’m hoping that the week will be less eventful just to let me find some time to write and to read.
What was your weekend like?
