3rd gig off the week

The Beat and The Selecter at Shepherd's Bush Empire. Tired!

I think my hat's actually further away

Looks like my hat for next weeks rugby dinner is further away that it was when I ordered it!  Doh!

Cheeky so and so

Biscuit really is a cheeky so and so.  Leave a cup of tea anywhere remotely accessible and she'll find a to get to it when you're not looking.

Bourbon Street Revival at the 100 Club

I'm tired this morning, I've gotten home gone 12:30 twice in a row now.  Urgh.  Yet another band.  This time one of Steve's.  The Bourbon Street Revival at the 100 Club.  A Great small venue.  The Trident Waters were on before hand and were great.  So good I bought their EP.  They were a bit Soundgarden / Audioslavey.


I split tea on my shirt yesterday on my commute in.  What an idiot

Vote Green, and if not donate

I'm note sure how many people silently read my blog but for those that do please take a little time out of your day and donate to my wife April's crowdfunder campaign.

She's not only standing for the County Council elections next month but now due to the snap election  is now standing for election in the General election 3 years sooner than expected.

If you can spare a few pounds to support her cause that would be great, and if you live in the Tonbridge and Malling area even better, as you can vote for her too!

Your donation will help cover the not insignificant costs of running in an election, such as the £500 deposit, leaflet and poster printing etc.

And knowing the Greens, if there is any left over i'm sure they'll put it towards saving an endangered seal or something...

Jeff Lang

We saw Jeff Lang last night over in Camden and he was excellent. Pete and Steve joined us too and I've now been ropped into going to another gig tonight at the 100 club. Another late one I think. Urgh.

2 weeks to arrive?

I need to wear a 'funky' hat for our rugby dinner in a couple of weeks so ordered this from a page on etsy

It's been dispatched but from the other side of America.  Fingers crossed it arrives.

I think a max of 5 people out of the 100 or so at the dinner will know what it is.

2nd watering of the day

It's doing well but still not full embedded just yet. According to Google, another two weeks or so before I can cut it.

April's away

Steak and wedges for Stu.

A couple of shots from the latest games meet

This one was in Cottingham round Ben's Mum's new flat. I think I won the trophy this time having won 2 out of the 3 competitive games we played...

April's bought me a book to read

It's actually quite funny.  It's been ages since I last read a book.  Podcasts and tablet watching films and TV series has been the order of the day over the past few years.

April actually bought it for herself as the books she's been reading are aimed at women and finds they have sexist undertones...

Spotted a fox on the way into work yesterday

He (or she) was trying to drag this sack somewhere. Not sure what it was or where it was taking it, or why for that matter.

Some photos from over of our receptions at work

Not sure if it's how I would have kitted it out...

Not quite what I was expecting

Well that's interesting.  Not sure it's what I was expecting.

Here's the quiz if you want to have a shot yourself

As mentioned before, don't be a dick and vote Green.  Not sure if it will catch on as a catch phrase but we shall see.

All gone

I bought my own "egg" this year. Do you think George Lucas still gets a cut?

The Behemoth

I cooked a 3kg leg of lamb for 8 on Sunday and as far as I can tell nobody died. I quite enjoy it but I do get a bit hot and bothered towards the end. And a roast dinner isn't really what you need after that.

Honey, I blew up the ... microwave!

April blew up the microwave this weekend trying to cook songs popcorn. Here's this weekend's shopping list.
It's quite typical.
