Happy Easter folks!
It's been a while, the clocks have changed, the sun is (occasionally) out and there's been lots going on.
15/16 March saw the Classic Car Boot Sale back at the Southbank. The one day last year now increased to a whole weekend. It's a great day out even if you don't buy anything. Lots of lovely old cars & scooters, great music from the djs playing on top of the open-top double decker bus and good food/drink.....and obviously great for photo opportunities/people watching. I didn't buy anything this time round but my BEAUTIFUL £5 candy-stripe 60s dress from last year made up for that!
Back to Wiltshire at the beginning of April for my Gran's 91st birthday. Ventured to the village coffee morning, chatted to a young lady vicar (good for her I say!) and got a book on Victorian photography for the bargain price of 50p. The country is good for things like that!
Up-to-date now with this weekend's goings on. Yesterday was Record Store Day. Yes yes folks, I know we're in England and we have Shops not Stores! I was quite surprised by comments on Twitter that some people weren't aware it was happening or what it was. Different lives and all that. I wasn't so surprised that people had been camping out on the streets of London all night in none too warm conditions - more surprised that lots of those people had been camping out for a limited edition Ghostbusters fluorescent 45!!!!
Finishing off the day with some drinks & big chips in The Swan in Hammersmith where we tried our best not to throw things at Keith Lemon & decided someone needs to invent a shazam type app for famous people you recognise but can't remember the name of - in this case, someone not as famous as I thought, Mark Ellis. Finally, after months of waiting, to the Apollo to see Mr Ant do Dirk Wears White Sox from start to finish. Marvellous it was too.....or as Simon puts it, "tasty". A great value gig with not only the album but obviously lots of other classics too......well done hubby, you played a blinder.
With that, I'm signing off.....now go and eat some chocolate or a bun. I'll leave you with a photo!
