The best laid plans of mice and men, etc. This was to be the week in which I did so much. Last weekend, however, I contracted a bit of a sore throat and had to drop out of not one but two Defenders rehearsals. By Wednesday I was feeling a lot better and did a run on the treadmill followed by a spinning session on the cycling machine. That night I was due to go to the gym for the class with Will but by that time I was beginning to feel a little unwell again. Yesterday I was just wiped out with a head cold and last night was really rough. I was really glad to see the clock finally crawl round to 'getting up time', Today will be a day of lying on the couch with a quilt on top of me, watching endless repeats on Sky and feeling sorry for myself.
Today I had intended to put up posters for The Defenders gig but that's not going to happen.
But I can announce that that the gig will be on 2nd January at An Talla. Further details when I have them.
I suppose it's better to have been ill now rather than a couple of weeks down the line when the gig is approaching. At the moment I am aiming my sights on being ready for our first full-scale rehearsal on Sunday night. Andy, our drummer, is back with us and the four of us are really looking forward to making some real noise together.
