Feeling tired but worth it.

Hi peeps, just wanted to say me and my hubby went to Manchester arena last night and saw Elvis in concert with the philharmonic Orchestra, it was absolutely brilliant and fantastic how they had sett it up. Elvis on a big screen with the orchestra playing in front. Pricilla came on stage a few times to talk about the show and what some of his songs meant to Elvis. Stayed the night at a premier Inn and came back this morning then straight on to hospital to have chemo. Been a long day but it was worth it, even the gasping for breath after walking up a lot of stairs and thinking am I going to make it lol. so happy we went. just wanted to share that with you. love Julie xxx

Hi Julie,

Hi Julie,

Sounds amazing,music has been one of the things (along with my grandson) that has kept me going.I saw that on a programme and thought how wonderful it would be to go,but the ticket situation down here is scandalous.

On a small scale, I went to see Go West (80s band) in a local theatre last night and spent the evening dancing and singing,it was a joyful evening that made me glad to be alive.

I hope last night did that for you too and that it's given you the lift you need to finish your chemo before Christmas,

Lots of love
