One of my life goals completed – Billy Connolly

There are not many goals in my life, I am an enjoy each day kind of person but I had two major things I wanted to do. The first was see Billy Connolly Live, the second is to swim with dolphins. Both of which are completely acheivable and I almost acheived the Billy Connolly one a few years ago when we bought tickets but they never arrived so when I went to see him on the 28th February and I was only in the 5th row it was a dream come true.

I loved every minute of it and although you can see Billy is getting older he can still spin a tale like no other. He touches on some subjects that caused some gasps especially his fat person story where the rather (read extremely) large lady in front of me decided that he was no longer funny and huffed and puffed throughout the rest of the show. As a large (although not as large as I was) lady I didnt find it offensive in fact he was talking about those people whose houses need taking apart to get them to the hospital which was rather funny in the way he told it.

And so I now only have one life goal left. Obviously I have lots of things I want to do and see and for my children but these are goals that have never changed in the last 15 years so it is great to be able to cross one off.

Billy, you are still funny and thank you for making me laugh so much I nearly wet myself.
