Fish, chips and a sunny England!
A lot has happened since my last blog post but before I catch you up on everything I just want to say a big thank you to all our customers and friends that popped by in the last few days and weeks at the Thai Gift Shop. You are the best! Thanks to all those that helped us move too – Jack and family, Aunty Nicky, Neil, Mei Ling and Caroline to name but a few. We couldn’t have done it without you.
So, first stop on the blog-jog: July! Well with the shop closed I had a month to get everything done before I flew to Bangkok on the 31st July. I crammed in a little songwriting, a touch of producing, a few martial arts classes, a couple of meetings, a few nights out with good friends, a lot of nights in with the family and even a weekend getaway with some university mates;
Actually it was my friend Ed that suggested the weekend away. His mum, Angela, has a beautiful house in Aldeburgh (a small town in the south of England right by the sea) and as I happened to be in London for music meetings I was lucky enough to be able join him and a few friends for a couple of days. It turned out to be a ‘proper English’ weekend and as such it was the perfect thing to do before heading back to Thailand: Fish & Chips on the beach, long walks through green fields, fresh air, summer sun, local ale and good friends. Absolutely perfect! I’ve included some photos below.
Oh I almost forgot to tell you about seeing a performance called ‘It Felt Like a Kiss’ at the Manchester International Festival. It was a live promenade style walk-through production by a company called ‘Punch Drunk’. It’s hard to describe exactly what happens and why it’s so enthralling but I came out wishing all my friends could see it. If you ever get the chance to see a Punch Drunk performance please go – one word: amazing! For a few more words though please see: http://www.mif.co.uk/events/it-felt-like-a-kiss/
Ok I really wish I could stay a little longer. but I’m feeling rather sleepy. Best get some zzzzzzzzzz before the studio tomorrow. Take care and see you soon. J
