It was 9.55 am. Sat in a meeting, phone on silent wishing I was anywhere but work. Not even needing to be on the other side of the world, just needing to be home and in front of a PC!
Emails tinged with excitement were hitting my phone. Text messages reminding me that I needed to LOG ON NOW! Alas, it was all to no avail.
On the other side of the world, in the world famous Sydney Opera House, Mr Neil Finn and Mr Paul Kelly were taking the stage.
I was at work. Young Ollie was at school. Such is life, but by the magic of the interweb, we sneaked into the den tonight to watch the whole show on Youtube.
So with a cuppa, some treats and a decent connection, we have sat in dark and pretended it was live and even pretended we were there, soaking up the songs, singing along and blocking out reality.
Whatever life throws at Ollie and myself, we always have music. It’s such a joy to hear him sing with Neil. It may not last, but hopefully, it will.
Anyway, for the next 30 days, you can do the same if you wish. Though sadly, not in my den… Oh, go on then, if you promise not to make a mess!
