An Island Of Sound

After Inspiral Carpets/Happy Mondays and The Stone Roses it’s a continuation of the theme as a couple of weekends ago Jan and I vanish to the seaside for the Sound Island Festivall (in a park, not on an island), featuring The Farm, Inspiral Carpets (again!), Cast, Echo and the Bunnymen and James

Ed’s Boundless Energy

Congratulations must go to Dr Perkins who somehow convinced a lovely woman to marry him. They did that a couple of weeks ago in Denmark (Ed having proved to the Danish authorities that he wasn’t already married!). This weekend saw the UK leg of the celebrations. That found Jan and I navigating trains and a bus to Sudbury then Long Melford, in Suffolk.

Pasty Tasting

Must get things out of draft! On which note, taking far too long to write up as usual (perhaps I should try writing these things more as they happen), a look back at a very relaxing week’s break in a very sunny Cornwall, as undertaken by Janet and I. There was plenty of sun, and walking, and beaches, and pubs.
