It’s been another interesting week. As I type this I feel like Ronnie Barker at the end of an episode of “Open all hours” hence the title.
Yesterday was a mammoth day in all aspects.
I had a gig through an agency and it said the set up time was 11am. This is fine normally for most gigs for most Deejays as they don’t tend to stray far from home and go to said place in between setting up the show and actually coming on at night, some even programming the background music to come on before they get there in the evening. Ian, I so admire your confidence in technology..I on the other hand, cover the entire South of England so I can’t just pop back from Salisbury to jolly old Barnham for some dinner and TV.
I meant to ask the bride if I needed to be there at 11am as I knew she was not getting back to the venue until 3:45pm but forgot and called her the day before to ask her this very thing. Alas, she was at a friends house for the day before and for some reason, she may still not have received the mobile answer phone message that I left her.
Have you ever had that thing where the message turns up days later? I know I have. Anyway I had another brilliant gig as you will see when I put the video blog up and even got given a bottle of wine as a thank you (for being here all this time and staying awake?) from the Bride and Groom who were a wonderful couple and had many friends who had helped out with the costumes etc. which shows that I’m not just saying they were wonderful!
On the way home though, I suddenly realised I should have brought some matches to prop open my eyelids as I couldn’t drive anywhere without really wanting to close them. I’ve been a temp truck driver for years so I know all about odd hours and “sleep driving” but this was severe! I’ve never been this tired before. Never mind, I’m still here to tell the tale.
Here endeth todays blog.
