Up and down

More charging up and down the M62, this time twice in one weekend! Firstly back to Warrington, but in a nicer hotel, for a work meeting on Saturday, then back home at night and then to Manchester itself on Sunday to go to the Academy for a gig, where Daughtry were playing, and back up home again Monday!  For this we went with Phil’s son and his wife, Carl & Karly, and thankfully Carl was the chauffeur as I’d had enough! We stayed in a Holiday Inn express which wasn’t bad and only 15 mins walk from the Academy, and so had a few vino delecto’s and had a laugh.

I only have wine, but like the ticketybrew sign, signature yeast sounds yucky!

Daughtry! Maybe.

It’s always a problem for me at standing gigs, every one is taller and I don’t get to see much. Never mind, I’m probably too old for this stuff anyway 😀

This seems an appropriate song for me by Mr.Daughtry,

  • You’re never too old. Ever. As for everyone else being taller, you’ll just have to either shove your way to the front, or negotiate better access 😉 I’d love to see some gig photos from you.
