Luck me 😁🎻🎸🎼🎄

Mrs Will bought us tickets yesterday to go and see them at Honiton on the 14th.  It will be a good way to be welcomed back to the country, and start getting my head into Christmas mode!

People are now phoning me to ask if the gig is still on and saying they might not be coming … the reason being bloody THICK SNOW…. wishing it had waited another day!

Hope that it was able to go ahead, Jenny, and that you got a good turnout, despite the snow.

It was absolutely wonderful, and even the dear departed was kind of ‘with us’!

And typically the thick snow has now disappeared! It couldn’t have come at a worse time!

Slept til midday though!

The tribute to David and the emotion felt at Maldon Town Hall last night was very fitting.
Wonderful to still be able to laugh "We've got our lights up, we've got our Christmas lights up"  Grin Grin
Sadly missed but a fabulous Christmas evening getting us in to the spirit of it all and David's spirit was certainly felt last night.  Kiss What was missing was David's guitar sound driving it all along plus his wonderful prose and overall presence....
He would have been fairly outraged because the bar was 'out of action' Let down by the company at the last minute so we had to nip to M and S and bring in our own!

Fantastic. You can sit, relax and enjoy it as you're not organising it!   Wink

Indeed… I certainly intend to… with no responsibility this time, though I do love organising it each year!
