Bank Holiday Weekend Blog

Not a particularly good weekend for a Bank Holiday as the weather could have been an awful lot better, however there were two events that I consider to be blog-worthy.

  1. A trip on Sunday to good old Brighton with Mrs DeeJay and her son who came to visit for the weekend. I can't remember the last time I visited and it was good to see it again. The down side was the Bank Holiday wether and the traffic even though it was far from beach weather. However after searching for a parking space for over half an hour (at least we managed to find one in the local swimming baths, not like all those obedient motorists waiting in the car park queues for someone to leave), we had a very blustery but embracing walk along the front and a more leisurely walk back through the Lanes. We stopped off in a little Italian restaurant for a good bowl of pasta.

  2. Last night we went to Croydon to see Joan Armatrading. What a fantastic show with a lot of new material as well as all the old favourites in an almost 2 hour set. What a fantastic voice range she has, as well as terrific guitar skills, especially on her 12 string playing Love Songs.
    There was also an unknown (to me at least) support act in Jade Gallacher. I think that she was obviously influenced by artists such as Eva Cassidy and sings incredibly like her. She was only on for about 30 to 40 minutes but she had me enthralled for the whole time. Her new album to be released around July is going to be a definite buy for me.
Work has been tough this morning after such a late night and after a long weekend, but as I have a dayoff to go bike riding with the Police on Friday (maybe blog material for the weekend), it is only a 3 day week for me - hurray!!
