During my late teens and early twenties I did what most people my age do every weekend. I went out drinking and only regretted it occasionally. That ended when I became pregnant and had a baby aged 23. Now it's my child that gets to go out nearly every weekend. However, the last May bank holiday was all about me and I don't regret a thing.
Both Saturday and Sunday just involved being lazy around the house, every now and then I just need to slow down a bit so that I don't burn myself out. Monday was a different story.......I have a friend that is really into country music and she's forever telling me to come out to a gig. One of her favorites, Mark Curran was playing. I'm not too fussy when it comes to music and there was alcohol involved so how could I say no?
One of the supporting acts was this guy, his name is Jem Tyler and he does an amazing cover of Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus. If that song doesn't get my teenage self in the partying mood then I don't know what will. After he'd finished his set he stay and enjoyed the party with us. There wasn't many people there the whole night, maybe in was because it was Bank Holiday Monday and many people would of had work the next day, expect my friends and I. However it was nice that the venue wasn't overcrowded as it gave you a chance to actually talk to everyone. Including one girl who I think was on something other than alcohol...............
I think I might have found a new favorite band. country rock is my favorite kind of country, and when the lead singer buys a round of drinks during his performance, what's not to like? When a friend talks about something so much you start to wonder if they are over hyped, and I'm pleased to say that wasn't the case with Curran. They were amazing and I can't wait to see them again.
The next again morning I was feeling alright, apart from the fact that Blake tried to wake me up at 6am! After only 5 hours of sleep. He did say he was worried and he'd missed me so that was pretty cute. Don't know when I'll get out for drinks again so I made the most of it. Sometimes you need to be yourself, instead of someone's parent.
