The words I NEVER thought I would say . . .
To be honest it is a little bit painful to say, but I am just going to steel myself, be strong and just come out with it.
Okay, here goes . . . . .
Hello, my name is Rhian and tonight I watched (gulp). . . .
tonight I watched Cliff Richard live in concert.
Yes you heard me right.
Your eyes do not deceive you.
For the benefit of those who have just spat their drink of choice all over the screen let me repeat so that there can be no confusion.
I. WATCHED. CLIFF. RICHARD. IN. CONCERT
I honestly don’t know how it happened. One minute we were going for a nice leisurely stroll along the South Bank on a lovely sunny Melbourne afternoon and the next?
Well the next we were somehow buying tickets to see Cliff Richard – I really don’t know what came over me. I am ashamed to say that I was the one that saw the poster and pointed it out, it was me who uttered the immortal words “it can’t hurt to go and see how much it is”.
Turns out it could hurt.
You see in my mind when I mentioned this to sibling and parent, it was with a view to them going, and me staying at home and selflessly looking after the children while they
endured enjoyed a night of Cliff. I was absolutely not going. At all. Ever.
Until mum gave me the doe eyes and the “oh it will be so lovely for us all to go together” and “we are going home soon.”
She was so excited.
I just couldn’t say no.
To be honest she had me at the doe eyes.
So I went – purely for her you understand – purely for the woman who gave me life.
I turned up late due to childminding problems, which did not go down at all well with the die hard Cliff fans in our row. We were VIP seats don’t you know. By the time I got there though he was 4 songs down and on a roll.
I didn’t want to like it, I really didn’t but somehow Cliff drew me in.
I drew the line at rushing down to the front for the encore with the hoards of women of a certain age though, to be honest I was a bit frightened for my life – a lot of them had walking implements that could have worked very well as weapons if I got in the way of them getting their piece of Cliff action.
So to my verdict
I like Cliff he seems like a very nice man and he has still got the moves for someone in his 7th decade.
Don’t judge me.
