Spitfires in the Sky

As Sunday was scorching – there was no way I was going to battle the second day of “Wicksteed at War” , fighting round the crowds etc ,

The Spitfire was due over just after 4.20pm so took to the garden camera in hand thinking to myself that it’d be a dot in the sky ……. but at least the photos show what it actually wasΒ 34919463_122719291951841_164456333578338304_o34984513_122719328618504_7353111786029056000_o35102396_122719255285178_5361570918713786368_o35026618_122719415285162_381011578234863616_o

These were taken at Helsinki on the layover

And this is the view from the rooftop bar at the hotel in Tallinn

So the festival season has started with gusto rain β˜”οΈ but no thunderstorms β›ˆ

Only getting to Germany πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ at lunchtime yesterday didn’t have a lot of time to sightsee but the hotel we stayed in used to be a monastery

Of course festivals mean freebies

only managed to catch part of 30 seconds to mars but Jared Leto is the annoying moron he always is !!

Next stop Munich πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ and Rock IM park

6 months without Roo πŸ±

Come 30th May it’ll be 6 months since we lost our Roo aka monkey

Some days are easier than others people say oh she was just a cat but when she goes to bed perfectly ok and you expect to see her the following morning but she’s crossed rainbow bridge you don’t just accept it

What did I miss ? Was she trying to tell me something ??

I’ll never replace you Roo !

Festival season

So for the next 6 weeks I will be living in denim shorts, t shirts and safety boots whilst having a radio (walkie talkie) clipped to my arse , no different to the other last few years apart from this time I’m tour manager (why did I agree)Β 

We start our journey beginning in Germany and taking us across Europe (back to the UK) and more ofΒ  Europe till the beginning of July , don’t think there is much of Europe that we aren’t hitting at some point , Germany, Estonia, Sweden, Poland, Austria, UK, France, Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Portugal and finish in Spain

Then we get 5 1/2 lovely weeks off to do nothing YAY before the North America support tour starts , I am SO fed up with touring America even more so when it’s places I have been to before or we will be stuck in the middle of nowhere or time off and bored stupid
