Happy news

Where has the time gone again!
Heard some great news yesterday, my best friends daughter gave birth to a little boy jamie sam 6lb 9oz almost two weeks early but all fine, so i will be up in essex next week so will be able to see him ah can't wait.

We went out friday to a quaint old pub in bude with friends, there were 10 of us in the end, had a lovely meal we had heard the portions were large so just went for main courses, i had homemade steak and kidney pie yum and it was delicious and very large, tony had lamb, the choices were very good, tony is ceoliac, our friend is veggie and one very fussy eater so i think everyone was catered for very well. Meal over then the group played in this most tiny space, fiddle ,mandolin, 12 string guitar, bass,and mouth organ they were really good , not youngsters by any means but they played so well together traditional irish folk songs with a few requests thrown in, they played until nothing to pay for the entertainment it was a great evening, we then went back to our friends house for cheese and biccies finally got to bed at . Saturday had a late cooked breakfast then back home at around three then collapsed for two hours sleep, can't hack these late nights any more! good laugh though. We sang so much we now have sore throats.

Been watching glastonbury on tv, neil diamond was very good , amy winehouse was a joke, she needs some help, such a talent when she wants to be . It is a good way of seeing bands that you would not maybe go and buy a cd of. Sooner watch it on tv than to be there.
Tony and our daughter are off to watch neil young next sunday at an open air concert in kent good luck to them with the weather we have been having lately.
We have also got tickets to see K T tunstall at the eden project at the end of july, the atmosphere there is very good especially when darkness comes with all the bioms lit up it is quite an amazing sight, we also saw Peter Gabriel there last year. So you can see we love our music willing to listen to anything. Oh yes and an elbow concert in october. give them a listen they are really good.
Post some new york piccies soon

Good news about your friend's daughter and grandson - happy times.

Alan and I watched Amy Winehouse and were of the opinion that she was completely out of it. We were waiting for her to fall over at any moment, and the security guys were looking very anxions weren't they! She must have been high I reckon.

I'd love to see the Eden Project, hoping that maybe will get a holiday in Cornwall sometime in the not too distant future, will have to twist someone's arm I think. ;o)
