As the Killers new found BIGGEST fan, I am currently working my way repeatedly through their catalogue. Current song on repeat? (And I mean repeat…..) A Dustland Fairytale. To be perfectly honest I thought I was too old for concerts. FYI- I’m not. Second row, all the way. Standing for 3 hours mind you is havoc on the knees and hips the next day. But it was SO worth it.
Especially as we were so close. The supporting band- Houndmouth were pretty good too. Supporting bands don’t get enough credit, and these guys got the crowd going- no mean feat as really a) we were all only there to see The Killers, and b) they sang all their own music!
I love the line-
“Saw Cinderella in a party dress,
But she was looking for a nightgown.”
And it kind of rings true for me. As all my friends know- I LOVE a good night out- but am invariably first to bed! I love this picture of me in my finery at the Dublin Horse Show. I was sewing plaits into a friends horse. You should have seen the shoes!
But I’m not often dressed like that around horses.
Thankfully. Especially the heels. But it was a great day…
And as for a night out. Love the out part, especially the eating- and wine drinking, and mostly the craic. But the preparation- not so much. I own a hairdryer. Not sure why, it gets used once or twice a year to dry something in a hurry. And I never wear make up day to day… so why would I wear it at night. I reckon Cinderella went au natural anyway 😉
My all nighter days have definitely gone- , and although I might only wear the party dress for a short while- I still like to wear it….
