Well colour me surprised!  
 I’ve had a bit of a weird day, I finally got around to telling mum that not only am I off to Creation next Saturday but I will be going to the SNS. Now I was expecting world war three to break out, instead she told me she was worried about me coming back late at night. I asked her if she would prefer me to stop over rather than try for the last train. I was stunned when she said yes it would be better for me to stay over rather than come home alone, and then she said if I’d hadn’t been so cloak and dagger about the whole thing, I could’ve invited one of the girls going to the con to come and stay at ours, as long as “I looked after them.”

Then I asked if I could have someone to come and visit in any case and she said yes! Well buggar me backwards, it looks like I can have a friend over for a slumber party (I always said I was a recycled teenager). *Rubs hands together, looks like hotel sasha-dragon is open for business *G*.

I staggered off upstairs and set about booking a hotel room, and now I’ll be spending next Saturday night at The Holiday Inn Birmingham Airport and NEC! (It's on the Coventry Road and there is a shuttle service to the NEC, or I could take a taxi back there) I got Steve to come up and we had a little chat, I said how shocked I was about what mum had said and that I’d booked a room before she changed her mind.

 Steve admitted he was glad I was stopping over as he didn’t like the idea of me coming back so late as well.  And that the reason I was so cloak and dagger was if you catch mum in the wrong mood she would’ve gone nuclear, and she still can’t get that my Fl*st are real friends and I’d love to spend more time with them in real life.

So who knows perhaps she’s finally coming around to me having friends she hasn’t had chance to stringently vet, and decide they are fit because they share the same views as her!

Roll on May! And Creation and Crossroads, it’s time to have some fun

That sounds wonderful! I know how she is with all that stuff... perhaps she is coming around, after all?

Fingers crossed that just maybe she's getting the hang of my friends in fandom.

Well, someone is full of surprises!!!
But, I have to say I'm with your Mum 100%, I didn't like the idea of you travelling home late at night.
So that's great news - we can all rock out together at SNS right until the end now :)

I was so happy when she said yes, and I had a brilliant time it was a real shame you couldn't be with us.

Wohoo! Glad you were able to catch her in the ride mood!

It was one of those perfect moments and I ran with it.

Well hell fire and brimstone - did she step out of the right side of her coffin that morning? LOL! Sorry but, LOL! I'm so glad you're gonna be able to stay over ♥

*G* You know I think you might be right about her getting out the wrong side of the coffin, but just maybe this could lead to a better understanding of me and my friends.

Well that's a huge relief and it'll be easier for you knowing you're staying and not rushing around late at night.

Only a few days now!! Looking forward to meeting you :)

It was so much easier staying rather than having to run for a train.

Hey, I'll be at the concert and con too! Glad you have a place to stay and don't have to travel back and forth:)

If you want to come find me; I'll be in seat Y44 on Sunday.

Hey there, the concert was brilliant last night, sadly I was only there for the one day. I'm back home now and the Con is a lovely memory.
