WOYWW 123

Wooo!  It's after midnight so I'll be an early poster for a change!  For the newbies out there - I'm talking about WOYWW, all the info can be found HERE where you can hop on the magical mystery tour....

I'll keep it brief cos, as I said, it's after midnight and I've just turned into a pumpkin.  Or at least, I feel like one!

Not much change to the ol' desk this week.  I've shuffled a couple of boxes and taken a couple of things out of one of them, but other than that, not a lot of change.  Although I would point out that wobbly man seems to be doing his impersonation of C-3PO at the moment!  LOL.  Well, had to make a bit of an obvious change, otherwise the desk would look exactly the same as last week.



Crafting wise, there has been zero activity.  However, we DID go and see Blackmore's Night play at Salisbury City Hall on Saturday - absolutely ACE gig, and we hung around after and chatted to the keyboard guy (Dave) and the woodwind guy (Albert), and Lil Miss B got her photo taken with Albert.  Didn't get to chat to Ritchie Blackmore, but we figured we'd hung around long enough and Lil Miss B was ready for bed!  I would have taken more photos (they're on my phone at the mo) but I've never seen such high security at an event.  The bouncers were on the hot lookout for anyone using a camera or phone and confiscating them if they caught someone.  I got a couple of pics of the empty stage, and one of Albert opening the show, but that was it. 

Equally, it's been an interesting week.  You know how it is, you've got chatty/friendly with someone who is the parent of XXXX, one of the kids in your partner's class at school.  And several months later you find out that said parent is actually someone rather famous in certain circles, and whose band you *cough* idolised in your teens.... 20+ years is a long time, gimme a break, I didn't recognise him straight away.... LOL..... Cue rummaging in your album collection and a music fest of gothic proportions..... No?  Must be just me then.....


Forgive me if I don't mention his name or his band, but he's pretty cagey about what he does (I don't think the locals around here are ready for that bombshell) and it would affect XXXX's relationship with her friends if they knew her dad was famous.  Likewise, I've not told Lil Miss B (and she never reads my blog, so not an issue) because she genuinely likes her; we'd prefer them to be friends because they get on well, not because of who XXXX's Dad is.... I'm sad to say it but Lil Miss B can be a tad shallow sometimes!

Back to WOYWW - I didn't manage everyone last week - BT Broadband had a hissy fit on me again on Sunday.  I hope you're all keeping well though!

Catch you on the hop....

Yep, I don't recognize the face and probably wouldn't know the name, either. So, since I live so far away, I won't be a problem (grin). Have a great WOYWW. #11 this week.

Glad the gig in Salisbury went well!! The bloke in the photo is quite familiar but can't make the link to his name at the mo (old age is a wonderful thing!). Glad the craft room is making some progress, even if it is in the form of a C3P0 dancing man LOL!! Hugs, LLJ xx

Hi there. Just a quick peek around the door this week as time is definitely not on my side! I did want to visit though.

Karen said...

Ohhh I wonder who that is.....maybe you could PM me and let me know...I'm itching to find out who it is!! Promise not to tell..! Enjoy WOYWW!

Sunshine Girl said...

Dont recognise the chap so your secret is safe with me!

All very cloak and dagger! A lovely busy desk as always though.

I know exactly what you mean with those celebrity's kids - we have that at my daughter's school as well, but luckily it hasn't affected her yet. You did right in not mentioning to your daughter how famous he is - and thus keep a normal friendship between daughter and XXX.

Secret safe from me...I haven't a clue!! Ooh you've got a picture on the wall - you must be itching to pull up a chair..

I'm going to expose my inner Goth (Carl from FOTN and a piccy that still warrants a serious ooo-eer!!!) funny really I bounced around in my kitchen to The Cult recently and remembered my stripey tights, long skirt and bikers jacket with relish (painted revolution on the back in red and still have it)...it was divine fun at the time, then I got side-tracked and went to Ballet School!!! But peeps don't realise how similar classical and heavy rock music are...

I'm with Jude- I know who he is, but cannot grab the name. At least he's a cool person- just think, it could have been a pop star, lol!!! I adore Tintagel- we first went there about 10 years ago, and felt just like I had arrived home after a long time away. I would live there in a heartbeat.Running a bit late this week, have a good week, Shaz

Sarah said...

lol it wasn't me, it was a different Sarah - BUT I do know exactly who he is and am getting the impulse to throw some flour around just for old times sake :) blow him a kiss from me :) ask him if he remembers the girl in the full length blue velvet dress at the gig in Dudley ;) :D
