I'm quite excited because I've booked tickets for my first gig in ages, the pretext being M's birthday. Neither his birthday nor the gig are for ages, and there's quite a big gap between the two, in fact it's closer to my birthday than his. I'll have to get him something else as well and there's a risk that this will seem like a present for me. (Which of course it is as well, because I like her voice too and I've bought tickets for two. But he liked her first and converted me, so surely that makes it count as mostly a present for him? Does it? Please say it does?) It's for Amy Winehouse, if cirrhosis of the liver hasn't killed her by then.

I was thinking about booking a hotel for the night as well, but the ones I fancy are expensive and I'm pretty sure M would say "what's the point?" if we'll be spending the evening at a gig and then heading home in the morning. I expect it's unlikely that we can hang around for long enough to partake of swimming pools and such-like, and booking one like that would definitely turn it into a present for me, me, me, mememememe. The M in my head is no doubt right that it would be a bit wasted on us on an occasion like this, and a simpler & cheaper b&b would do.

On the other hand, I have a hankering for luxury, mini-bars and swimming pools! Perhaps we could turn it into a combination birthday present for us both?

But I still think he'd poo-poo the luxury hotel. I'll leave deciding until a bit later, I think, no need to go mad and get everything arranged right now. I can book in somewhere once I've thought on it a bit longer. And possibly we could have a luxury break another time.

If it's in London remember the Raynes Park hotel. :) We can remove the children and you can have the children's room. With the added luxury of not costing a bean. Abster xxx
