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.
