upsidedown

Random

Just got back from Godalming.

Random were still amazing :-)

Not the best ceilidh I've heard them play at though. Was fairly subdued as ceilidh's go.

Don't think Chris Pitt (the caller) was at his best tonight either.

Still fun though :-) Danced with lots of people, most of them complete strangers...

Smoothy Expense

In the reduced chilled section at Somerfield today they had a small bottle of smoothy reduced to £24.74.

I know these are relatively expensive, but I think that might be pushing it slightly...
