Hi all, Just a quick one this week. Not a lot happening at this time of the year. I’m getting a steady flow of bookings for weddings next year so the sites doing well I’m glad to say. Lord knows I’ve put the work in! Slaving over a hot monitor night after night. But if I’m honest I like it. Life is a game after all. You shouldn’t take it too seriously. Just play along like a game of whatever with your friends. Do right by people or you’ll always feel like shit anyway regardless of how they are. Treat others as you yourself would want to be treated. They call that the “golden rule” in some parts of the world. imagine if everyone lived by that one….Yeah that’s right baby….just stop reading this for a minute and sit back in your chair and think what it’d be like….no more traffic wardens, arms dealers, political betrayal, dictators, anti-depressants, foreign call centres and celebrity fitness DVDs. I’ll let you into a secret. If you did just that, (lived by that rule) you won’t get even half the crap that bad-arses get in their lives..
Anyway, all I did this weekend was a children’s party in Bognor which wasn’t great money or anything but hey…the folks were great, the children were as cute as anyone else’s kids always are. And they are! Particularly the little blond girl walking round all night with a dummy in mouth and a floppy teddybear/bunny rabbit thing. I’m a big softy I know but I feel a lot more relaxed with children running round the show than drunk adults lurching around the lighting rig with a full pint of Stella and legs like jelly! Help!!!! short circuit warning!
Took Becky to St Martins tea rooms in Chichester today. Oh how I’d love to live in a house like that building. Cosy just doesn’t do it justice. Old cottagey place with log fire and beams and all organic menu…We didn’t eat there. It’s a bit pricey for a week day lunch but if we had a bit to blow we could do a lot worse I’m sure…There I sat in my new jumper which was amazingly warm. All I needed was a pipe and a mortgage….
This Saturday we’re not gigging as things stand. We donated an eye wateringly large amount of our hard-earned to a very good cause indeed and have been rewarded with a night out at a restaurant in Hove with some other mates so that should ease the pressure for an hour or two…
See you next week and book me! I need to make that money back! (yikes) Have a GREAT week!
