Monday arrives, and is heralded in by NBTS' resident rock'n'roll fan broadcasting Shakin' Stevens into the cool clear day.
As I pull on my clothes, a horse and cart pointlessly glides first up and then down the street.
The sky is storm dark to the north, but the sunshine is still strong in the bay - it's an enchanting effect. Makes me think I should leap out into the morning with my camera - or maybe even the video cameras I have on hire for the filming today and Wednesday.
All I actually have time for is a hasty shot from my back door - but it reflects the day quite accurately. Still, no time for this sort of reflection - time for work. Lots of it. Lots and lots of it.
I think I would actually relish the work if I wasn't a little bit late with most of it. So, as the guilt rises for spending time on this blog, time to de-camp into the world of web design.
Paul Hooper, erstwhile member of The Fortunes, joined us in the Black Pearl for our band's rather public rehearsal. The performance has seemed to go well enough, and there were a good crowd listening. Nice.
This is one of our few 'open to the public' gigs and all are welcome - The Black Pearl - formerly The Old Ship, Front Street Newbiggin by the Sea. It should be a fun night, and we'd love a crowd to turn out so please ask your friends and we'll see you down there. Thanks.
