First time for EVERYTHING

So the concert then. The girls and I caught the bus in and walked along the Liffy which was fabulous as we were blessed with blue skies and mild temperatures. Jess and Kirstin put pink sparkly eye shadow on to celebrate the occasion and we all wore comfortable shoes – standing makes this a necessity in my book. I wore my runners and hoped that I would not embarrass my girls. Little did I know that I actually would embarrass them in a way I would not even have imagined.
The opening act was Ray Gun and they were okay but I had been feeling kind of strange all day and after their performance I started feeling a little nauseous – no they were not that bad! I told the girls I was thinking of heading to the back but they did not want me to go so I stayed put. Five minutes later they regretted my company, I felt light headed, put my chin on Jessica’s shoulder and promptly fainted. Typical! The first time I EVER faint is at the 02 packed full of people. I came too and wondered why Kirstin was screaming MOM and in tears, jeez I felt sooo bad, they were terrified. I promptly stood up, confused and somebody handed me their coke which I gratefully accepted. I assured the kids that I was okay and then sat myself down on the floor…eeuuww…and drank my coke. I stayed down for 15 minutes and then took a deep breath and got back up. Luckily that was the end of that nonsense and P!NK came on and everything was right with their world once more. The very first song that she sang was actually the song Jess posted on my blog so that was pretty cool. Watching my children loose themselves in the moment was an awesome experience –they ABSOLUTELY loved every millisecond of the concert and it was unbelievably brilliant, P!nk sure knows how to put on a show. I have been to a few concerts now and I have never experienced anything like it. For all my Face Book friends, the pictures are uploaded – and here is a sampling for the blog too!

Hope you are feeling better and it is nothing serious. Sounds like you had a lot of fun.

sorry - but that was kind of funny!! See how fun being a 'yummy mummy' can be - you get to hang out at Pink concerts with your gals! :)

Natalie said...

LOL - Yep, it will certainly be a night to remember for so many reasons.

Yikes. Only time I ever fainted was in school assembly hall when the whole school was there for morning prayers, but I kind of liked the attention. ;) Fainting at a concert seems like it would be SCARY!! At least they didn't stampede over the top of you like they probably would have at a boy band concert! :)

English Mum said...

Wow that looks amazing! Sorry you felt bad though - what on earth was that about?! xx

Tracy said...

No!!!! Shame nats . . . Fainting is a horrible feeling ! Had you not eaten or something?

Natalie said...

Hails, EM and Tracy - Dunno why I fainted, I think it was because it was so hot and I had not been well.
I had always wondered what fainting would be like! I remember sucking on chalk to try and make myself faint with a group of friends at school...did not work - obviously an urban legend. Fainting at a concert was horrible! But soon got over it when P!nk came on...
