VDubs and Scooters!

We’re going to this next year!


It’s £20 each for the weekend including camping and under 16s go free! There’s VWs, Scooters, live music, flushing toilets and showers! Sounds like a bargain too good to miss! We wanted to go last year but it clashed with my festival but SoL is earlier next year so we’re buying ourselves tickets as Christmas Prezzies! They’re available here!

In the meantime here’s a couple of pictures from our holidays on the Isle of Wight last year!!

When an old cricketer leaves the crease

I thought I’d post this today for two people who died in the past few days:

The first is composer David Bedford who arranged the song and in particular the brass section played by the Grimethorpe Colliery Band. He also worked with artists such as Mike Oldfield, Billy Bragg, Madness and even Frankie goes to Holywood!

The other person who sadly passed away was England Cricketer Dilly who died aged just 52. He played for England, Kent, and Worcestershire during his long career and I think I may have seen him play at the latter club but I can’t be sure!

South Norwood Country Park

I “discovered” this place today! It’s just round the corner from where I have worked for over 20 years and I didn’t even know it was there. Hiden from the world by a huge Tesco store, a train line and the trees that surround it a vast area of open country side in South London. It is mostly reclaimed land that used to be sewage works and a dumping ground. In the few minutes I had to wander round one small corner of it  I was amazed by the variety of wild life that I saw.
