guitar, lurgy and car...

This is normally the quietest time of the year for me, in relation to work and other things. The lurgy that I was 'going to go to the doctor for if it lasted three days' lasted a week and a half and of course I didn't go to the doctor.

Other things have happened. Managed to change my accommodation for Infest, from what they call a 'townhall suite' to an en-suite room. This is good. These days I have to get up to go to the bathroom a couple of times in the night -in my confused mental state of those moments I might lock myself out of the room, which would be a hoot -not. Managed not to do it so far, but the peril is avoided this year.

ION, bought a car. This sounds bigger than it is: it means I bought a 10-year old little car to replace my 25+ year old Renault Laguna, which of late I didn't even trust to use as it was bound to die on me in some inconvenient situation or place. Not going to Bradford in it, though; I already had train tickets. I still need a car for lessons and other things and the Laguna was caught in the ULEZ trap so I had to get rid of it.

Guitar: normally after a gig I take a few days off practice. So it has been this time and I'm still not practising 'properly' but I'm reading music I may want to play. I need to learn to sell the 'product', somehow. I should be far busier playing gigs. Oh well.

Summer: not going anywhere much (apart from, as mentioned, Infest) but enjoying getting up at 9 instead of 6, etc. A few gatherings with friends -although, curiously, less than at other times of the year.

I'm on Dreamwidth at -do follow me there if you can.
