Little pleasures and big pleasures
Another sunny morning and it isn't just the humans in the household enjoying it's warmth. I stood for a moment watching him rolling on our bed. Slightly different story this time last week. Alfie had to have a little haircut...well a big haircut really.
Poor boy had got rather matted and I was out of action for the last few weeks and was unable to keep up with the grooming. He has been behaving rather strangely since he has been, er, scalped as he keeps jumping onto things that he shouldn't or hasn't done so before. Take the above photo on my trolley. (Look how grumpy he is!) He also has been jumping into our bath and basin. Perhaps he feels lighter on his paws.
Ooh the big pleasure today is having Matthew (my youngest brother) here and my Tom for the weekend. Matthew came with a surprise for me..look....look..
...tickets for my beloved Crosby Stills and Nash. I am sooooooooooooooo thrilled and excited!!! I may not have mentioned very often how I spent my teenage years, after loving pre 1980 Genesis, totally LOVING Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (I was a bit of a hippy then.) I have only seen them once and that was in 1983. I was unemployed and living in Perth Scotland and saved up to buy a ticket and the train fare to Birmingham (it was a 6 hour journey). I was the youngest in the audience and the first to run down to the front and was thanked for doing so by one of them. I love David Crosby best, then Stephen Stills and then Graham Nash. What I do dislike immensely is whenever anyone plays any of their music it is always 'Teach Your Children' or 'Marrakesh Express' which are totally the worst songs they have ever made. It doesn't showcase their wonderful harmonies. Right, rant over but my goodness I am so looking forward to seeing them. I thought I would have to go to the US to see them again as I missed out in getting tickets last year when they were in the UK.
Such big pleasure...I'm counting the days...
