george michael concert – hotel weekend break

3

My ex work colleague Lorraine lit up my phone this morning before I had even finished my muesli…I have got to see him, I have still got a crush on him after all this time and despite his “history”. I take it you mean George I ventured – with flash back images of her boogieing round the handbags to ” wake me up before you go go”. Absolutely I know he will never be mine but I can still dream. He “George Michael”  has announced his final 2 concerts at Earls Court in August. Now when Lorraine had this crush she was a mere child herself, now almost a gran I did have to wonder about the enduring power of the teenage crush. I presume there will be a gang of you and you will want rail tickets and an overnight in a hotel as well I asked, cereal spoon poised to take down all the details. Have you had a ridiculous teenage crush you still harbour – do let let me know I might even tell you about mine … a clue it involved lots of tartan !

no frills budget London hotel break for posh pal

My posh and well connected mate Rupert rang, I need a really nice hotel on the weekend of the 21st June, we have been invited to Sir Richard’s party at an exclusive venue in Kensington and “not going” is not an option. Ah well says I then in that case money will be no object. The 5* Royal Garden is on High St Kensington, within crawling distance of the venue and very nice, I warmed to the task I will get you a park view and you can look down on The Royal’s – not for the first time I am sure I teased gently!  I also have a great deal on first class rail so you can travel in style too or are you taking the Bentley .Well my budget is around £120 tops he says plus cheap rail tickets if you can get them. OK says I .. understandably now a lot less enthused, then how about The Copthorne Tara or Kensington Close a bit further to crawl and not as glam but ideal for the purpose and I will do the special National Express East Coast restricted ticket deal for £46 each. Perfect he said lets go for it. Do you have go to these type of glam events and if so do you push the boat out or like Rupert save the pennies…do let me know and reply back.
