Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

The Housewife’s Crush: Blue Wiggle

with 6 comments

DH and I took the kids to see The Wiggles on stage today. Well, if I’m honest, DH took me and the kids to see The Wiggles today.

Actually, if I’m REEEEALLY honest, he took me to see The Wiggles, and the kids tagged along too.

DD is too old for The Wiggles. She’d rather be at a Hannah Montana concert. DS is too young for The Wiggles – he’s just about getting into the Teletubbies. But when I heard The Wiggles were coming to Dubai, I had to go. Sorry family: we’re going.

It’s Anthony. Blue Wiggle. I had to see him in real life.

Anthony Field - aka Blue Wiggle. Look at the shiny white gnashers!

I blame it on watching Wiggles DVDs FAR too much when DD was small, but I developed a bit of a crush on Anthony.

Anthony post-‘work’. By that, I mean that we have some of the older DVDs where Anthony is chubby, pasty and has bad hair and bad teeth. Then, bingo, in the newer DVDs, he’s slimmed down, got some abs and some pecs, got shiny new teeth, a short haircut, a tan and maybe (don’t sue me – I’ve had the ‘pause’ button on a lot trying to figure this out) – maybe a nose job, too.

So today we had brilliant seats. It was pot-luck as they were assigned randomly, but ours were fab. Close to the front, great view, and on Anthony’s side of the stage. I was free to ogle, in the flesh and uninhibited, from about 20 metres. He even ran past me so close I could have touched him. Were there other Wiggles in the show? Didn’t see them – my eyes were only on Anthony and his sparkly gnashers.

And what a guy he is in the flesh: toned, tanned, fit and BEAMING in the way only a Wiggle can beam. He connected with the kids, read out signs that kids had brought with them, lead the rest of the Wiggles, made jokes, and sang and danced his heart out.

But, Housewife’s crush aside, the show was terrific. What great value – what great performers. They came out and slammed it to us for 75 minutes. Old songs, new songs – Hot Potato, Fruit Salad (why is that song so popular?  Because it’s so bad??!). DD was entranced. For that hour she forgot she was too old; she clapped; she sang, she danced; she grooved.

‘It’s the best show I’ve EVER seen,’ she said. And I think a lot of the Housewives there probably agreed. Thanks Anthony.

Anthony helps Dorothy the Dinosaur do a handstand. A man of many talents.

  1. I’m with ya, girl! I have had a crush on Anthony for a couple of years now! Sooooo hot! LOL! Although I don’t think he had a nose job. He had some work done on his jaw after he got an infection after some dental work so maybe it just changed the way his face looks. But still, yummo! 🙂

  5. […] I noticed last week that The Wiggles are coming to Dubai again. There was a time, three or four years ago, when I may actually have killed someone to a ticket for DD, who adored The Wiggles. We saw them live in the UAE twice – once in Abu Dhabi in 2010 and once in Dubai a year or two later – I even blogged about it.  […]

  6. definitely a nose job!
