|Meeting Tracer after the Show|
After the show I went to get my scrapbook paintings signed. To start with, as usual, I only did one for the band I had booked to see (i.e. Tracer) but, after finding out that they were doing warm up, I had stayed up late to do one for Everyday Circus. Lucky I realised they were playing before turning up really! Anyway, it was so worth it because they were so sweet about the painting and, aside from that, they were lovely to talk with, polite as well as great musicians. It was a bit overwhelming for me though because, as I seem to say quite a lot nowadays, my scrapbook paintings are just little things I do for myself and when they get attention it’s bizarre (in a lovely way).

Yesterday, I was supposed to be at the Glastonbury Medieval Fayre but, with the weather being blooming miserable, I gave it a miss. It’s a shame because I go each year but oh well. Instead I went out for a super meal. If you happen to be in the Exeter area then try The Blue Ball Inn – their food is so good, locally sourced and fresh. It’s also a very reasonably priced for the quality.
After that it was the long drive back to Birmingham (where my parents live). We decided to do a bit of a scenic route through Cheddar Gorge. Seriously, that place amazes me no matter how often I see it. It’s a shame how commercial it is around there though. Burrington Combe is just a bit further along and seems a little less touristy, although it is still popular.
And today I’m at my parent’s house in Birmingham. I’ve booked flights for my next trip – this time to Venice – and I’ve drunk a fair amount of mead. The latter will account for any strangeness in this post! I’m now waiting for what promises to be a glorious meal to cook! Sadly, tomorrow it’s back to The Netherlands and back to work…. that is, if Storm Katie doesn’t cause my flight to be canceled!
And before someone comments on the above: I do really like The Netherlands, I just like my family, friends, not having to work/cook etc too 😉
Oh and, before I forget, Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate it! And to those who don’t, happy Sunday anyway ❤
