A lean looking Anne this morning departed Morecambe en velo heading for Bridlington. Not having done this sort of thing before (and not a naturally keen cyclist having just moved house) she was not entirely in the zone. Here she is pictured with Christine just before departure.

It is always amazing how much 4 blokes can shift if they get their act together. Apart from my personal delight and gratitude of getting the job done, for me it was actually a good laugh, with plenty of amusing banter from my fellow helpers, Dave, Chris and Andy (plus the utterly pro John Edge). Poor Chris had a rather unfortunate Laurel and Hardy incident when moving the piano, but all turned out ok. I must admit, my normally sedentary upper body is quite sore today. The first night passed off without any hitches but it was pretty nippy - the damn boiler ran out of oil (argh).
Good times. Hopefully I won't be moving now for a long time. Thanks to all.

Tuesday was 13 years since we got married - thanks to Helen for the celebratory picture. Nothing much has changed, apart from a little hair loss here and there.....

A great night last night for me, my brother Dave was playing an acoustic gig, one of his rare live performances of late, and I popped down to listen and connect with some old friends at the First Chop in Ramsbottom. Dave writes some of the best singer-songwriter tunes I know and also reinterpreted a few sounds of the northern indie bands of the 80s. Great night. More please.
