I'm feeling very guilty today as Mrs DeeJay, who never has any sickness, has finally succumbed to the cold that I brought home from one of my trips several weeks ago and still have not completely shaken off. She had a bad night last night, sounds extremely croaky this morning and is staying in bed today. That shows how bad she must feel as she NEVER stays in bed!
I hope she will be well again by the end of the week as it is her birthday early next week and I am taking her on a surprise trip to Edinburgh on Friday for a long weekend. She has never visited Scotland and as Edinburgh is one of my favourite cities, I hope she will find it the same.
Having had to give up my ticket for Thin Lizzy next month in favour of a business trip to Tokyo, I tempted fate yesterday and booked a couple of gigs for next year. Alison Moyet and an Eagles tribute band - The Illegal Eagles. I have heard the band before and they are excellent, but this will be the first time I have seen Alison Moyet on stage.
The tickets arrived on Saturday for Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings in January. I am still in two minds as to what to do about them as I couldn't believe that literally 15 minutes after I placed the order on the internet, I received an email inviting me to a face to face meeting in the U.S. for the same week. I am sorely tempted to decline as I think it is time that I favoured my personal life for a change.
This is the week of my first guitar lesson on Wednesday evening. I will let you know how I get on. I must admit I am facing it with just a little trepidation.
