so i actually left the house yesterday afternoon/evening to head into Douglas to watch the red arrows + meet my cousin and my sister before the gig
here i am with my cousin Mandy, waiting for the display to start.
but more importantly... the red arrows were AMAZING!!!
i managed to snap a few quick shots of them swooping around Douglas bay but as we all know, my camera is a bit shoddy so the pics aren't that great. . .
they were really, really amazing though + we found out that one of the pilots was from Coventry, which was nice (all and i mean ALL of my family comes from/lives in Coventry!)
speaking of family, my sister Nikki turned up next
then it was time for the show, we wandered around the Villa Marina for a bit before the gig and Imelda came on at just gone 9pm
myself + Nikki attempted to take a photo but. . . you guessed it, camera + dark room = godawful picture!!!
Imelda looked amazing though! she had this gorgeous red and black polka dot pencil dress and a skull and roses necklace, very rockabilly, very awesome!!!
kind of like this dress only red with black polka dots and black buttons/belt/collar
the gig was amazing! i'd definitely recommend seeing her live if you ever get the chance, what a voice!!!
to be honest i think i just enjoyed getting out of the house for once! at the gig i bumped into Ciara and Julie from Sweet Ginger, my friend Melanie from the Alpine, my graphics tutor Andy and my web designer friend Richard, so all in all it was a super duper night
DEFINITELY go and see Imelda May perform if she ever does a gig in your city/town/country. . . for sure!
after the show i took a walk along the prom (Douglas Promenade) since it all looked so pretty with the fun-fair all lit up
believe it or not but this is one of the first years in a long time that i've actually bothered to visit Douglas at night during the TT, i'm so boring i always stay at home, but the atmosphere last night was great
so maybe now i know what i've been missing all these years
anyway providing it doesn't rain on Friday, i intend to make i into Douglas for the senior race day firework display at night :)
