Just weekend things …


About six months ago, I was preparing our Sunday meal when I had an idea. We were having tray bake (we don’t do traditional Sunday lunch type food) which was basically roughly chopped peppers, courgettes, onions with new potatoes and chicken thighs all mixed with olive oil and crushed garlic. I’ve got a picture somewhere … Continue reading Just weekend things …

After the Party … Leeds Festival 2011


Well it's over for another year, and how do I feel about it this year. Mixed feelings really. I suppose the weather had a lot to do with it. The continuous rain on Friday, left me feeling very depressed. Then there was the mud, which really made the weekend, very hard work. I know festivals … Continue reading After the Party … Leeds Festival 2011

Leeds Fest 2011 … countdown


It's only seven days to go to the annual Leeds Festival. All the road signs seem to be in place, and the security fencing is going up very quickly now.  This will be my second Festival, and I''m beginning to look forward to it now.

After Leeds 2010 ….


   Well I managed to camp at Leeds Festival 2010 for three nights … Thursday, Friday and Saturday. S**** slept in “The Tent” the first night, and then stopped with his mate from drama on the Friday and Saturday night.    The bands were amazing. With the size of the festival, being what it is, … Continue reading After Leeds 2010 ….

He has been with us since the week before his play, so the house seemed a little empty yesterday evening. i must add, the youngest … Continue reading Long time … no see !!!!

A wake up call……..


   We got a bit of a shock at 01:30 this morning. The telephone went, and you know what it’s like, when you just seem to have got off to sleep. Well, I did not know what it was at first, then Mrs H jumped out of bed to answer it. It was S**** from … Continue reading A wake up call……..

Bank holiday


   I’m quite glad it’s the bank holiday weekend. It seems to have been a rather long week. Still haven’t installed the RAM, but Sunday looks favourite. This is going to be a short one, as I am going to download the Office 2007 package. I’m not sure how long it will take. Hopefully around … Continue reading Bank holiday

Better than I expected


   I got home in good time tonight. The roads were a lot quieter than was anticipated. I had visions of 10 miles queues on the A1, after the problems last year. This morning was quiet too, although going north, the A1 was very slow and crowded. The Leeds Festival gates opened at 3am this … Continue reading Better than I expected

Leeds Fest’ is coming…..


   Well the Leeds Festival kicks off tomorrow. Many of the roads around here were starting to get a bit busier than normal. It looked like a number of people, were already moving onto the site this afternoon, and the music doesn't even start until Friday lunchtime. Some of the gate bouncers have been in … Continue reading Leeds Fest’ is coming…..
