Last night was great fun, so muchly thanks to Paul and Chris for going with me… particularly Chris, for having such disturbingly nice parents. Evening wasn’t even ruined by my mother phoning twice and leaving two voicemail messages and phoning Chris’s parents and getting them to phone Chris… to make sure I had a key. I showed her I had a key before we left home. Ah well.
Flowe were fantastic, and actually the two we stayed for after were very good too – Beat My Guest especially, with their cool sax player, and… whoever it was after them… were well-practiced and put together too, though I thought their original songs were dull. But the image of those two guys standing awkwardly on the left of their stage blowing smoke rings will stay with me forever. So, so funny.
The especially nice thing about having Paul there was that he could pass judgement on something for me, and it feels very nice to have got his agreement. But he couldn’t really have refused, from the situation last night. Mmmph.
Off out in a minute… Lizza’s going too, so with her and Chris and Paul I shall yet again have some excellent company. Funny to think of this time last year, when it was Ev and Ellie and Paul and Chris there. It’s nice that some things stay the same, however different this year feels to last.
Made pink macaroons this afternoon, then sandwiched them together with dark chocolate. And watched QI with Sam. And did homework. I love Saturdays.
Posted on OH today, saying something that I doubted I would ever be able to. I feel very thankful that I now can, and I think with full honesty.
and i wouldn’t change a thing
