I thought today was going to be another ordinary Wednesday. Oh how wrong I was.
I dragged my body out of bed this morning, dragged it into the bathroom to wash, and forced breakfast into my mouth (I don’t have much of an appetite in the mornings but I have to eat something to prepare myself for the over-crowded trains). I then trudged to the train station, my head already spinning with thoughts of office tasks that need completing in my bosses absence. During my train journeys, I attempted to read my new book, 'It could happen to you', to empty my mind of office tasks, but I had a little doze instead.
I entered the office at 9am, fantasising about a mug of coffee whilst checking my emails. It was at this point that I noticed the two urgent texts on my mobile from my cousin Paul, and the voice mail from my cousin Sarah. I then logged on to my computer and an email flashed in my in-box from my cousin Paul, and the telephone rang on my desk, it was my cousin Sarah.
This could only mean one thing. One very important thing. George Michael has announced two new concert dates, in London, August bank holiday weekend!
I thanked the Lord that I had not booked my dream holiday in August, so therefore I am available on both of the nights he’s performing at Earls Court. Oh the unexpected delight! The incredible excitement! Our tickets have been ordered (the George appreciation is a family trait) and according to the seating plan we will have a very satisfactory view of the stage. Only 77 days to go.
Don’t you love it when that happens? There you are, half asleep, when out of the blue - BOOM! All it takes are a few choices words and you're walking on air with a stupid grin on your face, thinking what a wonderful world this is.
I’m easily pleased, aren’t I.

Can you play 'Faith' by George Michael?
