Well, what can I say? I wasn’t blogging yesterday as we were having too fab a time. *Caveat* I don’t always blog just because I’m not – honest! Our happy trio went to see Paloma Faith perform at the Piece Hall in Halifax last night and all agreed she was absolutely brilliant. Her two hour set flew by. Admittedly, the three of us had made a day of it and enjoyed a decent Italian meal and a few drinks beforehand, which added to the sense of occasion. Oh, and the stories I could write about the people watching!
Today’s a different ballgame – ish. After a late night Dee and I had a lazy morning before heading off into Halifax once again for a couple of drinks as I’m on my travels again. The town centre was buzzing with people as tonight it’s Paul Weller’s turn to entertain. The Piece Hall concert season is really putting Halifax on the map – and it’s lovely to see. Here’s a pic from last night – taken on a mobile phone as I couldn’t take my kit inside for obvious reasons!
But for me now, it’s a change of tempo – and country. Right now I’m heading down to London as I’m a guest of Siemens in Germany for the next couple of days. I’m part of a press trip – more of which will be revealed later. First, I’ve got to get to Heathrow…
Having bid goodbye to Dee I caught a busy Northern service to Leeds via Bradford. Passengers were flocking off the train to come and join the fun in Halifax at yet another sell-out gig which meant I’d no problem getting a seat to set up the laptop, log on and start blogging. Right now I’m on LNER’s 21:45 service to Kings Cross. It’s another busy train but coach C is unreserved and I’ve managed to blag a table. The evening’s following a familiar weather pattern that’s been with us for a while now. The days may be crap but later the skies clear, leaving us with some stunning evenings.
What a pleasant trip this has been. A quiet carriage and a lovely evening outside. What more could you ask for? The one interesting aspect is how many more people are wearing masks again. Despite the Government pretending, Covid has never gone away. The opposite in fact. Clearly, some people trust the medical profession and not our shambolic Government. My camera bag has a stash of masks as we’re expected to wear them in Germany – and sensibly so.
