Tour Diary

Belgium. Antwerp. De Roma. Dec 7th.

December 8, 2017 6th Dec. We land in Amsterdam late afternoon, Vinny and I. G had already returned home the morning after Copenhagen. Our hotel is conveniently situated for any amenities we might find ourselves requiring. We are commuting from here for a couple of days. Immediately, but immediately upon[…]

Stockholm. Berns. Dec 5th.

December 6, 2017 What a Hooha. 2 hours in the car last night to our Copenhagen hotel, which was chosen for its being, ostensibly, a 10 minute drive to the train station I need for my early doors journey to Stockholm today. I am beat. I decide I will shower[…]

Denmark. Odense – Odeon. Dec 4th.

December 5, 2017 Good and bad points of the morning. I slept well. Hurrah! My alarm didn’t go off. Bollocks. Where’s the cat when you need it? I was just leaving my room when Vinny appeared to rouse me to the hour. We walked to the airport – he, I[…]

Oslo. Rockefeller Music Hall. Dec 3rd.

Aylesbury Waterside Theatre. Nov 27th.

November 28, 2017 Bollocks. Now I am lost and can’t remember the order of events. This is where I am so saturated with geographical time-lines that I start repeating places in my head like sea-bed objects in a Brain Train exercise. I was in a bed. It was in a[…]

A Nottingham High. Royal Concert Hall. 26th Nov.

November 27, 2017 Sometimes I think it’s easier not to go home. It gets harder to leave every time I do. My poor man is beset by building dust fall-out and the house chokes. My cat wants to be next to my body. She wakes me up throughout the night,[…]

A life less ornery. Bristol Colston Hall. 23rd Nov.

November 24, 2017 I am a hen scratching for yesterday mornings. I find a strand and worry at it. We leave at midday. Vinny has picked me up a pitta wrap that I have ordered on-line so as to spare me another service station fast food outlet. This was certainly[…]
