So, a planned quiet evening turned out to be quite the opposite!

Ian had been away Thursday night for work. He drove up North for some sort of meeting, stayed overnight and drove back yesterday afternoon.
Travelling like that is pretty hard for him with his Psoriatic Arthritis so a quiet evening curled up in front of the TV was the original plan.

Then I got a message from Murron, daughter number one.

Apparantly CC Smugglers where having a surprise appearance at Esquires in town as a warm up to a gig they are doing at the O2 today!
I got to see them at Esquires a few months ago and absolutely loved them so the chance to see them again at an even more intimate venue was too much to resist.


They were even better this time!
Their style is catchy, bouncy and lots of fun! You can’t help dancing.
They made my night when they played ‘Rhythm’. My favourite track and a song that I’m absolutely addicted to at the moment.

And I got to meet the band and tell them exactly how terrific they are!


I must remember not to wear a hoody and a jacket next time. I was boiling and I look like a tomato!!

Fab night and I really hope things go well for them in the future.


So, my eldest has just turned 19!!

Old, I feel very old.
Where did the time go?

How did this?……..


Turn into this?…….


So what’s planned for today?
Well I’m going into town with her so she can get another tattoo and then she is taking me to go find something a little more suitable for me to wear when she takes me clubbing!

Yep! Clubbing.

I haven’t been clubbing for around 25 years and even then I wasn’t a keen clubber.
We will be starting out at Esquires where she wants to introduce me to a lot of her friends.
She worked there for a while and still does door work occasionally.
After that we are going to The Barley Mow. The local gay pub that has recently had a re-fit. They have a cabaret act every two weeks and tonight it’s ‘Charlie Hide’.


Murron knows the owner and most of the bar staff, which in itself is quite worrying!!!
I am going to stand out like a sore thumb tonight and I’m worried sick that I am going to be in Charlie’s line of fire!!
With all that said, I’m actually looking forward to it.

Anyway, a very large glass of wine before I go out tonight may be needed.

Enjoying my coffee this morning I had a really good laugh.
Sorry Riyadh!! I feel your pain but this is just too funny not to share!!
