How has your week been? Mine has been hectic beyond belief! We started the Mill Hill Music Festival, we had a mass of equipment to check following the Jubilee festivities that had been on hire, I had to play five a side football, have a rehearsal for our bands performance last night, and I caught up with an old friend from Primary school who I last saw when I was eleven for a pint at The Claddagh Ring. As the Good Lord recommeded, on the seventh day I rested, well I did one I unloaded the van, took the dogs for a walk and did the Sunday shopping. The highlight of my week was doing my first gig with The False Dots since 13th December 2019, here is a brief clip for those who are interested.
More to the point, what have our local tweeters been up to? Here's my pick of the fun
