I should have blogged about the end of my holiday a week and some days ago, but life’s been hectic and starting work again meant stress has mounted.

I don’t think I’ve ended a holiday on such a high before. It took days to land.

The Goo Goo Dolls did a European tour this summer, and played two shows in Sweden. Hubs and I went to the one in Gröna Lund, Stockholm.

And it was the best gig I’ve even been to. Ever.

Not that I’ve been to too many shows by bands I like (we’ve mostly seen bands hubs enjoys). Foo Fighters in June were really good and I’m so glad I saw them.

Goo Goo Dolls though. I almost don’t have words to tell you how good I found them.

They played all my favourite songs (but then I like all their music). When John played “Sympathy“, all by himself, I was all giddy with excitement. And Robbie did an awesome job on the songs he sung.

The greatest moment for me though was when John started strumming his guitar and talk about their first big hit. I thought I’d faint right then and there.

Name” is my song. Like, it’s been my go-to song for all the things for so many years and icanteven begin to explain to you how much that song means to me.

I started crying, bawling my eyes out and shaking. Hubs was patting my shoulder, a bit exasperated at my breakdown I think.

I missed recording the beginning of the song and hubs had to take over, as I was deliriously sobbing and had trouble holding my phone (I’m not sharing that video, because it’s not a good quality and as I said, the first bit of the song is missing).

I don’t know if I’ll ever feel like this again. And it’s perfectly okay if I never do. This was the best thing I’ve done (for myself) in years.

I bought myself a t-shirt and I both want to wear it all day-every day and just keep it safe and pretty forever.

My now plan is to get a line from “Name” tattooed on my arm. So I kinda need to research tattoo parlours nearby and get it done. I’ve had the idea rattling around in my brain for years, but seeing them live and having such a great time makes me really want to do it.

I really wish I could share some of these ecstatic feelings with you. I just have so much happiness inside of me!

Anyway, I should get back to this Last Day of Summer Holiday for the horde and make sure it’s a good end of summer for them too.

Take care, hug someone you love and listen to your favourite music.

whale-watchI had planned on going to Gothenburg Book Fair tomorrow (that would be Saturday), but I’m so fatigued that the thought of pushing and shoving my way through throngs of book crazy bookworms has lost its appeal.

The Book Fair is the BEST THING all year, and it hurts not going, but I gotta take care of me… I’m going to go get my hair sorted. It’s in need of a cut and a colour and I might buy some makeup too. I need more translucent powder, scraping the pan at the moment.

There are good things happening too tho. I have tickets to The 1975’s concert in Stockholm in February (which makes up for so many other things going pear shaped atm). I’m dragging hubs there, only fair since he’s dragged me along to all kind of concerts with bands I really have no interest in.

 

And in January our good friends are getting married, so there’s a trip to Stockholm happening then too. I love weddings, they’re always so much fun! Also, I’m seeing this as an opportunity to buy a new party dress (YUSSSSS!), dare I go for shoes too? SHOES!!!!!

The twins are off to a birthday party tonight, and I’m thinking maybe I’ll have time for a bath (using the Galaxy bath bomb from Lush) and a read. Yeah. That sounds nice.

Anyhow, I think I’ll have a bit of a read now too…
