Thank God it’s Monday!

Weekends aren’t usually very taxing, but this weekend fairly took its toll upon my frail mortal body, which is why I haven’t posted until the weekend has been safely stowed away for the next five days. Here are some photos of what transpired.

I visited a dear friend who has moved into the London area. I saw this on my way up the stairs, after cycling through the snow and careless drivers, it was a little unsettling to say the least!

The police tried to get in here. They didn't have the key, so they used their own.

Long absent friends have the endearing habit of making tea and engaging you in conversation for hours and hours. We had a great catch-up! It’s good to have close mates gravitating towards the capital! Keep coming, folks! The water’s horrible, but there’s plenty of room!

Cups of tea and conversation.

Sunday saw us drive East of Oxted to perform in an enormous pile that commands a breathtaking view over Surrey and Kent. This is the lobby. Check out all that oak panelling!

Sunday afternoons are for biscuits and beer. On our way home, laden with beverages and baked goods, we noticed that a Tolkein fan had scrawled ‘Riders of Rohan’ in the snow on a Subaru.

Riders of Rohan!

We could only add to this little homage.

For Gondor!

There you have it! For Gondor! I hope the owner appreciates the sentiment.

Now it’s Monday and we have to drive all of the way up the M1 to Sheffield. We have three performances tomorrow in two places! It’s going to be hectic, but we’ll be home tomorrow night. Hurrah! I reckon we’ll do about 400 miles. Pray to the gods of Spring snow and fog that we may be safely delivered.
