So we’ve made it to the end of this leg of the tour and I have never seen so much snow in such a short time
As I write we’re in Indianapolis the photos and video were fish ladder park in Grand Rapids
So once tonight is done with there’s no sleep for the wicked – I had a choice of getting a later flight and getting home on Tuesday or leaving literally at the crack of dawn (5:30am including a layover ) to get back “home” tomorrow so being the insane fool I can be I went for that
No more road life now till end of April – I’ll probably be going stir crazy in a few weeks when I am back to the studios base after nearly a year in London and will be climbing the walls
But once April starts it’s all go to the middle of July with festivals and U.K. dates then I’ll be complaining I’ve had enough of touring !!
Now I know that the “customer” is always right but come on when speaking to a patient we are usually one of the following :
- In pain
- Sick to death of hearing Air on a G string as the hold music
So when we EVENTUALLY get through to speak to someone having to repeat ourselves 4 times DOES NOT HELP
Sent Dr X a letter last week is there anyway in finding out if he is dealing with it ?
Repeats original question
When did he send you a letter ?
No I sent him a letter a week ago
So you didn’t see him he rang you ?????
Now by this point I am close to screaming down the phone engage your brain
NO I sent him a letter LAST WEEK has he got it ………….. silence
Oh yes it was scanned on the system so that’s a good thing
I’ll print it out and give it to him
So he hasn’t seen it then ?
No not till I print it out
Well can you get him to deal with it ASAP ?
Shall I get him to ring you again ?
By this point I’d had enough and hung up
You don’t have to lose the will to live with that surgery but it helps
So the cruise is over and I’m glad to be back on solid ground again
Had a good time and it was certainly an experience not one I’d want to repeat every year though that’s for sure
Half moon cay was a lot better than Nassau and I could relax more – till I got back to ship and drank too much iced water dived in the pool and came up with trapped wind the pain was pure hell
So as I head for Orlando international airport it’s gonna be a long journey home Orlando to Washington to London landing at crazy o’clock Friday morning
Off now till 9th feb and a lot of decorating awaits
So we set off Sunday afternoon bang on time
First night on board was getting my sea legs so to speak and trying to find our way round what is to be home till Thursday
Haven’t slept so well on tour in ages as I did on the boat – whether it was the rocking I don’t know but woke up totally refreshed
Today has been a shore visit to Nassau third time for me here
That was a speeded up sunset on Sunday evening
So the band are headlining tonight and we have a shore day at half moon cay tonight
I love my job but there have been times today when memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheek
