We are going to a gig in London this evening, so that means that most of the day is taken up with preparing to travel to London, and actually travelling there (and back).
My wife goes to work in the morning, and I busy myself making sure that I am ready to leave as soon as she gets back home – walking the dog, ordering Calor Gas refills (something I’ve been trying to achieve for the last couple of weeks), printing out details of the parking space that I have booked through Justpark, making sure that I have the tickets to hand, having a shave…
My tremor is running riot in my left leg again. I’m very tempted to increase the stimulation on my device, but am very wary of provoking dyskinesia, which has been on the increase lately. My voice is fairly weak (still), but apart from that I’m doing just fine.
My wife arrives home, and we leave for Hammersmith, dropping the dog off at my wife’s youngest son’s house on the way. Our timing is pretty lousy, and we hit rush hour traffic on the outskirts of London, meaning that our journey of just over 130 miles takes us just over 4 and a half hours. We arrive at the Apollo in plenty of time, however.
Midnight Oil were absolutely fantastic – I have been wanting to see them play for many years, and I wasn’t disappointed. The gig finishes just after 11pm, and we then burn the midnight oil getting home, arriving back in Southrepps just after 2.30am. I think I will need a few days to recover!
