Bend It Like Beckham

2015-09-05, at 21:48:00

Last night was undoubtedly one of the best nights in my entire life.
The entire day, which I spent with my dear friend Nicola, was actually one of the best days of my life,
but the evening was definitely the best part.
 
Nicola and I started the day by going to the London Zoo, which I'm going to tell you more about (and show pictures of) later. Around 6.30 pm (after having walked around in central London for faaar too long to waste some time) we started making our way toward the Phoenix Theatre on Charing Cross Road where the Bend It Like Beckham musical would be shown. 
 
Nicola and I are both huge fans of Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays Joe, the football coach, in Bend It. Nicola got two tickets to the musical as a birthday present from her sister, and she told me I could tag along, which I am so immensely grateful for.
The musical was amazing, the actors were all phenomenal and the music made me want to get up and dance.
Even though I'm not Indian and I don't play football, I could still relate to some of the struggles Jess went through,
and I like the message of the musical, that you should go your own way and follow your dreams.
 
The best part of the evening happened after the show, though. We were lucky enough to be able to catch Jamie on his way home, and he signed our programmes.
The conversation went a little something like this:

Me: Hi, Jamie, sorry! I know it's late and you probably want to go home, but do you think you could sign our programmes?
Him: Abso fucking lutely, love.
Us: Thank you, you're great.
Him: Have a great evening, guys.
 
Always so humble, always so kind. He really seems to appreciate his fans, which is something both Nicola and I love about him. I'm also so incredibly proud of him, because he's improved tremendously as an actor lately.
He looked genuinely happy on stage, which made my heart sing.
 
I was going to provide you with a proper picture taken on my DSLR, but alas, I seem to have forgotten to bring the SD-card for my DSLR camera, and I can't be arsed to spend money on a new one right now.
 
 
In the picture you can also see the beautiful Morgenstern family ring replica from Hebeldesign that Nicola got me. Love her!
