Well, it’s been a long week! Lots of shows as far apart as Folkestone to Preston and all points in-between. Yesterday was a classic! ‘Manic Friday’ and we were booked to appear up in Southport.
That meant of course, The M6….on a Friday. Sure enough, I looked on line for the postcode, checked the route, and saw there was a major accident on the M6 and the 2 hour journey time was estimated on Google Maps at 5 hours 58 minutes! We quickly scanned for other routes and found them to be jammed too. There was nothing else for it! Get on the damn motorway and ride it out.
It took 4 1/2 hours! Oh… and I neglected to say that my back had gone through excessive coughing. Absolute agony alleviated only by the borrowing of a back support from Bob and Christine. A fantastic piece of kit which no home should be without! (I just bought one on line) Bob also took the driving seat whilst I was a reluctant but thankful passenger for the entire trip! A great gig followed by a two hour journey back home, which I managed to do, thanks to said back brace!
