Ah well ,such is life. At least I have lots of Led gigs lined up.......ah, except that I was ill (again) (gastric flu, yuck) so I missed a lot of the nearest ones ffs.........finally managed to catch up with them at Stroud in March. Such a great gig, missed them so much!! And then this last weekend I caught them at the Bierkellar in Bristol, what a great venue, loads of space to dance, a decent sized dressing room to dump all my stuff in, great sound, thoroughly enjoyed myself! And, afterwards, I followed fellow Led enthusiast and photographer Richard around Bristol's various road works to find a great kebab house for an after gig meal! Owing to the nefarious twists and turns of the Bristol roadworks, it wasn't actually the same kebab house that Richard ended up at, but hey, the lamb shish was awesome, so I'm not complaining.
And then Saturday night beckoned. A Light Zep acoustic charity do at a stone barn in the middle of nowhere/Oxfordshire. Having got home at stoopid o'clock the night before, and had a number of exciting things (ironing, washing, Craft Fair) to do during the day on Saturday, I was feeling just a little jaded late pm, and reconsidering my decision to go out...........in fact, I had totally abandoned my going out plans, and settled down to watch episode 7 of Vikings, when my gig buddy Ann, phoned and said 'leaving in 10 mins, are you coming??'
Well, what could I say? Apart from yep, I'll be ready in 5..? And I was. And we went. And it was great! Huge stone barn in middle of nowhere, lots of rugs and cushions to keep us warm, a pizza van outside, bar inside,.....SORTED :)
Spent most of Sunday asleep, lol, but what a great weekend, looking forward to the next one.
Am also looking forward to July, when I get to see Alice in Norway and Sweden!
