Reasons for My Absence, Part 1
October 18, 2011 8 Comments
List of things I have not blogged about this year:
Going to see Faithless for the last time
Getting off the tube 10 miles from home in freezing cold weather by mistake and having to get a cab @ 50 fucking English pounds
Going to a whiskey festival in Brighton,
Uttering words Husband has never heard me say. I must stop drinking whiskey now, they all taste the same,
Seeing Dave Gorman at Hoxton Hall, and getting heckled – isn’t that what they call it when the comedian tells you she likes your shoes?
Meeting Dave Gorman at the signing of his book, Dave Gorman vs The Rest of The World,
Telling Dave Gorman off for calling me Madam (his reply – his mother bought him up well – made me feel crass)
Seeing Ray Davies’ performance at this year’s Meltdown festival, performing the whole of Village Green with a full Orchestra and a Choir was pretty fucking stunning. Then he rocked for another two hours – not back for a guy of coming up 70.
Swanage was a good weekend – walked to Old Harry Rocks, found a Beer Festival and searched Swanage for a decent whiskey then for glasses to drink from. Our B&B only provided one water glass, and shot glasses seem an endangered species in Dorset.
Having a good lunch in a vegan cocktail bar; again in Brighton.
Getting diagnosed with breast cancer.
It’s a fucking bugger, that last one.
Contained. Treatable. Cancer.
It has sort of taken over my life, so apologies for not being around.
