Ha! Luxury!

Monday morning I was getting the kids out of bed to take them to school after getting home at 3am!

The trip home was me, my PlayBook plugged in to my rented Fiat's stereo and a helluva lot of Fish and Marillion :)

A great weekend, and like everyone else, I cannot wait for the DVD release of the weekend. I'm hoping that we'll see the new tracks on the release so that we can compare them to the released versions, but I haave a feeling after reading his blogs that they probably won't make the cut.

Either way, so many people, so much fun, and it still makes me smile thinking of it! That and the Fish Hunt of course! :)

An Awesome weekend, one of the highlights has to be the actual tension and excitement in the Assembly Rooms when Fish and Co took to the stage, i remember becoming sort of Hypnotised at that point, waiting on the first few bars/chords, "THE BIG G" i swear to god, the roof came off the place. I totally lost it at that point, god knows what Michelle thought of me :o :oops: I know Alan(Crawsnest) and Liz noticed i had lost it. I have only witnessed and experienced the decibels level like this once before and that was when i saw Fish and Marillion take the stage at Milton Keynes Bowl in 1986. :D :D :D
Thanked: 4

The way i reacted was probably Equal, if not higher than, when Motherwell won the scottish cup back in 1991. I went Ballistic! for the complete 2hrs or so of the set.

But i didnt feel embarassed one bit :D :D :D :D
