it all went a bit pete tong

Fake Cockney rhyming slang for Wrong.

I drank too much last night.  I embarrassed myself.  I told my friend's Mum on the phone that I was 'wankered' and then fell over whilst on the phone and said the F word.

Still - today has been fun.  Went swimming and then to a pal's house for tea.  Enjoyed it....

Lazy Day

I'm loving this sunshine.

Bbq today and we won't need a fire to stand by for warmth or an umbrella to cook under.

I also like the Blogger phone app.

So Shallow! The band: Crow Road

There is a band on at the gig I'm at who all have bad hair. I am automatically offside.

I am not so shallow that this would actually be sufficient to dislike them, but I am shallow enough that if they will have to be amazing musically to gain favour.

I am not proud of it.  I just discovered a character flaw I was unaware of.... I'm not exactly perfection in a woman!

Regardless, it seems I prefer pretty boys!

In my absence

blogger has changed!  Where's the navy blue border etc?

Oh well.  It's not as easy to see right now, as I'm sitting with the sun shining in behind me through the living room window.

That's right people!  SUNSHINE in Glasgow!  I am delighted but have tidying up to do today which is disappointing.

My reaction... blog.  (Bad plan, TC.  Get on with it!  Then get out and have some fun).

The plan:
Sort out the clothing mountain on the floor of our bedroom.
Do some gardening?  Or some shopping for food.
Walk to the city centre (5miles) for a gig tonight.
Tomorrow: Tidy more because people are coming round for bbq.

Recent activity:
Been to see looots of gigs.  We saw a Saturday gig, headliners: Bwani Junction at King Tuts - loved them.
We saw  Otherpeople and The Kings Hats, and Song of Return at King Tuts and liked the first 2 of the three (who were actually the 2nd and 3rd of four but the first band were not worthy of mention).
We then went to see Trombone Shorty in Edinburgh Queen's Hall and LOVED him.  I saw him in New Orleans last year so was very excited to hear he was coming here.  The crowd was disappointing.  I was surprised to find a hall half full and was a bit annoyed that only one of my brass playing friends happened along.  Ignoramuses. Watched the gig sipping iced water to get through.  Agony in the car on the way home but totally worth it.  (He's hot - check out the link).
Had root canal treatment yesterday.

i love it here!

Since we arrived weather has been changeable. I decided to begin with weather because it's what we Brits tend to discuss often.

We have been to Les Minimes and Ile de Re where we had enough sun to swim and dry off mostly!

We have climbed 2 of the 3 towers in the harbour. We have taken a boat to Fort Boyard. It is imposing and so remote it's difficult to imagine being imprisoned there. Amazing.

We have eaten a variety of delicious food, worthy of a separate post.

This is only day 4!
