28th November 2007: Montreal

TODAYS THE DAY! Todays temperature was forecast as minus 5, it actually ended up being minus 8 ... I may mention how cold it was once or twice today, keep your eyes peeled, it's subtle!;) Now I had bought a VIP ticket because it came with a guaranteed seat in the first 10 rows - and I got front row! There was also a pre-show reception that changed to a meet and greet when I checked the info just before I travelled. I have to say that the possibility of meting Sarah again did cause me to be slightly stressed thoughout the day!
