Of course I could not refuse an offer like that. So we organised for her to pick me up from work. Now everyone - you will be impressed that is just one hour we managed to drive from UWA to Ky's place, get changed and eat dinner. Then we took one of the students from Ky's house with us to the Maj.
This was my first time inside the beautiful 100 year old building that is His Majesty's Theatre. I can say that it well and truly lived up to my expectations. It is so beautiful! We ended up sitting in the "gods" the upper (second) level front row and centre. It was a great view and I have to say it was so relaxing to be able to sit down and enjoy the talent of the ballet dancers and the WA Symphony Orchestra. I loved it! Thanks for thinking of me Ky :)

I had a lovely lunch at Nan and Pop's after playing "Keys 2" for the two morning services, and then headed over to the open house before rehearsal for "Keys 2 " at Sunday Shift. A bit of a busy day for me...
Now, would you believe that two large events have been double booked in a week?
Saturday night's Youth Alive WA rally was at the Perth Exhibition Convention Centre (Dan & Mike filmed). This 6500 seat event was double booked with a finance conference so Youth Alive wasn't allowed to rehearse/make noise until it had finished! As you can imagine this set them back several hours.
The on Sunday... The Journey was supposed to be our Fuel camp at Fairbridge Farm and they managed to double book our 200 bed camp, so now we are having a conference type event at Lake Joondalup Baptist College instead. That is actually a good thing for me, it means I'll be able to go.
Lessons learned - Don't work in hospitality, Melissa and make sure you check your bookings!!
