Continuing from the last post, I thought I would expand on the time we saw Steps.
It was an outdoor concert, in the grounds of a stately home.
There were thousands of people there, mainly families.
Toilets were in the form of mobile units. The dominance of families meant that the ones designated for women had massive queues while the mens ones had no queue. My daughter and I started a mini revolution and after I checked that one was empty, my daughter followed by a throng of other women and children took it over and put it to good use. On organiser briefly tried to stop it but soon thought better of it...
Anyway, as it was a British summer, we were prepared for rain as well as baking sunshine. Good thing too! As Steps, the main group, came on stage the heavens opened and it poured with rain, so we put on the waterproofs. Shortly after a thunderstorm started over the sea a few miles away behind the stage. The on-stage lightshow was pretty impressive, but adding lighting too made it amazing. We sang, danced and clapped in the rain and mud, our spirits undampened. It was a great show, far better than I had expected. A day with my daughter I will never forget.
