So this week I was fortunate to spend two nights with the spectacular St Mary’s Inn, Morpeth located in the heart of Northumberland, UK. It’s just been Easter and we wanted to get out into the countryside to explore! St Mary’s Inn is perfectly situated for just that, positioned in a corner of Northumberland is the B&B which has recently has been transformed from the former administration building of St Mary’s hospital to quaint, contemporary first class accommodation.
Rooms at St Mary’s Inn are as close as you can feel to being at home. Rooms perfectly reflect the pubs ambiance and the ‘country bumpkin’ theme flows throughout incorporating striking antique cabinets with contemporary bathroom suites.
I’m sure we all remember my overwhelming excitement fit for a 4 year old on christmas morning when I purchased our Jay Z and Kanye tickets. Well last Monday we finally made it to see the incrediable duo at the Manchester Arena and its safe to say they did not disappoint.
For months prior to the run up I made the other half, Bonxy, listen to, and learn, all the songs on the Watch the Throne album (well!.. I couldn’t be signing along to myself now could I?!) Sceptical at first, it took him a while to get into but to a great success the show did not disappoint.
Prior to the tour I simply can’t remember my expectations, I mean I knew it was going to be epic.. but it truely was mind blowing. The crowd errupted as the pair rose from below! .. It’s possible I even cried at the sight of them. Yes, I am sad but the atmosphere was immense.
Following the pair from a wee nipper made the show for me, the aspect that they played their individual hits allowed me to Scream Shout Dance and ‘Diamond’ away at the classics! .. 99 Problems, Goldigga, Touch the Sky and ALL OF THE LIGHTS were amongst my favourites! And, you’ve gotta agree, knowing the lyrics to every old school song does make it that little bit more AMAZING!
After a 3 hour stint Kanye and Jay Z left the stage to an insane amount of stomping and shouting, Can I Get An Encore?
And what an Encore it was! 6 remditions of NI*GAS IN PARIS made it. Amazing night, the BEST concert of my life. Thinking of selling your tickets? DON’T .. or infact do.. and give me a ‘Holla’..
