Belated Happy New Year

Posted by Bill on February 7th, 2007

Yes, what with the Pinter on and the BBC gigs imminent I haven’t got round to wishing everyone a Happy New Year yet, so as the freezing damp of February has cocooned me indoors, I thought I’d take this opportunity. Just a quick note to let you all know about our New Year experience. We played Balderdash a lot, and stayed indoors. Making up nonsense while eating tiny bits of icing. Marvellous! On New Years Day, I had this brilliant, some would say ill-advised, nay reckless, plan to have a barbecue on the beach. In the shed I had found one of those self-lighting types, which have a brief incineration window of 18 seconds, during which time if you lean over they singe your eyebrows off. Nothing cooked as we all huddled in the dunes, and there was plenty of helpful advice, as in ‘why don’t we go to a cafe?’ . The biting wind did nothing to help, and coated everything in a fine layer of sand. It was a triumph! Then we went to a cafe.
