Gig night

fri 12th SEND MORE PARAMEDICS + EXPLOITS OF THE DEAD + FORENZIC tickets £5


Off to work now with very sore feet, smelling faintly of the beer that I was covered in during the thrashing...

Will post more in a bit!!


'In a bit.....'

So, yeah... It's gig night at the Yorky and it's tickets only (rare, yet always worth it). Debs and Marie pulled out at the last minute (grr) but I dolled myself up and toddled down Cannon Hill and through the Marsh to meet Lelly out side the (now heavily bordered up) Vic Pub. It's only a 5 or 10 min walk, but my feet are already hurting, thanks to the new leopard print, PVC healed ankle boots I had bought that afternoon (after a tip off from some one at work about a sale at New Look on boots etc), and I'm freezing in my thin black mesh top and jeans (the only sensible thing I had on!).

Staggered into town and went directly to the Yorky. Jen, Steff, Tall-Andy and various others were already there milling about... Plus a multitude of zombies...

I've never been to see SMP before. The fans like to dress up in tribute! There was fake blood - and an occasional fake limb - EVERYWHERE! Brilliant! Lelly ended up covered in someones fake blood at some point,and only noticed at the end of the night when she went to the loo and thought "what the HELL is THAT?"

Made a new friend too, guy called Mark (who Jen and Steff know, he's seeing a woman called Jill that we knew some time ago and who has a realy problem with Jen over a guy she went out with YEARS ago, as though it was any of Jill business. This Mark guy doesn't give a toss about all that though). He took it upon himself to guard all our stuff by the bar while we went down to the front of the stage while the bands were playing tracks we liked. I bought him a beer to say thanks and instandlty made a friend! lol... I think he rather likes his beer (the stroking of the glass and murmerings of 'beautiful beer' gave that a way a wee bit, lol).

Naturally Jim was there with his missus as his band was playing first. He got all excited when SMP signed his guitar for him too (bless). We had our (now usual) flirting session - which was a bit more graphic as he was drinking that night. Apparenly I have an 'amazing rack' and I can't repeat the rest of what he said as I think Yorkie would want to KILL him, plus Jims girlfriend wouldn't be over impressed either. It never comes across as a laugh in type, does it? Just to make sure though, I declined the swap of mobile phone numbers. Best to keep these things as occasional fun flirtings. It is nice to have a sexy young guitarist flirt with you though!!!

By the time SMP came on everyone was ready for them. There was a huge surge of people down to the front of the stage and we got smushed over to the side... which was a good thing once the dancing (madly crashing into each other and knocking each other all round the dance floor) started! Poor Lelly almost got knocked flying, we were all covered in everyones beer, and my already throbbing and near bleeding feed were jumped on!

It was bloody BRILLIANT!

By the time the bands finished this Mark guy had enlisted us girls into his personal hareem and promised to make us all a copy of his new SMP CD...

All in all, a good night.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
