Feeling excited, wobbly (I got really shakey after we'd left the boys, I couldn't explain why it happened AFTER I'd left them!) and a little sad that it was over we went on the hunt for dinner as I was obviously hungry! We had to hunt around for somewhere that could seat us and get us back to the arena before the show started, eventually we settled for Spur. I opted for the fajitas and specifically asked for the mild version... the food came really quickly which we were pleased about, but with just one tiny lick of the sauce I was on fire... it caused me to cough and my face go red. I asked mum to try just to check it wasn't me being a wimp but she had a bite of a green bean and the same reaction happened to her. We called the server over and told her it was ridiculously hot and I wanted another one. My new dish returned pretty much as mum was finishing her burger, so we ate in sittings!! This dish was much better, although my tongue still hadn't fully recovered and tingled most of the evening! The server was really good and said if this was still too hot she would personally go and bash the chef!
Once we'd finished eating we headed to the Sky Backstage area. As a Sky customer, you can register for passes into their lounge which I would totally recommend. They have a bar and a restaurant, but also some fun extras like a mini tv studio where you can do some newsreading, they have an interactive thing where you can be turned into Ironman (so fun!) you can have a tour of their other stuff (it was closed by the time we got in there so I don't know what that consists of) and thy have a papparazzi style photo bit to have your 'red carpet' moment.
