Rog tries to out do my 9 year old Eunos by buying a Peugot 205CC (the type with the electic hood). I'm impressed but mainly because the 205cc is deisel powered! Ok the lazy hood is cool to but you don't get the exciting driving sensation the Eunos gives.
Friday night came and while there was a fair few people paddling at Glastonbury I was seeing one cool band that wasn't there. Nope Third Day away were headlining at the Varsity Wolvo. And so a few beers were had and then off to bed after a hot hot pizza!
In the morning I popped over to Peter Posh over in Teleford for suit fitting for Di and Gregs wedding. Apparently the only correct item here is the red tie. Mind it was painless!
While over in Telford I thought I'd check out the shopping center as I hadn't been there for a while. In HMV I bought some Joy Division I've been meaning to buy for ages. Then a quick scout around JJB and we found Allen and Joe Parker. Big-L and myself nipped into Asda where I filled my face with fish and chips!
With the rest of the day free Big-L and myself went for a trip to Montgomery Castle via Muchwhenlock, Church Stretton, The Long Mynd and Bishops Castle.
Being as thee weather was not great we had the narrow mountainous roads across the Long Mynd to ourselves - apart from loads of young hikers around doing so sort of navagition exercise. One even shouted give us a lift. So Big-L shouted back we can't theres only two seats and its a bit of a squash already!
Big-L's map reading was as bad as usual, although I must admit the only map I had in the car was one of europe, which obviously was to such a big scale didn't have any of the small roads we were on in it!
We made our way to Bishops Castle where there was a church covered in scaffolding. The reason for going via this church is the fact that it is one of the only few left with a single hand clock. But with all that scaffolding you can't see it!
As you can imagine the castle at Montgomery is great.
Yep Big-L liked it so much he didn't want to leave.
but we did. Heading back to Church Stretton again via a different route over the Long Mynd.
We headed to the valley part.
and talked to the talkative sheep before getting a sandwhich and heading home!
Well the day had just been too exciting for some and well they dosed off! Later I haeded over to Zoe's for her fairwell party before packing up and heading over to New Zealand for a crazy life.
On Sunday once my hangover had gone I serviced Matt's motor. Can't say I like Citreons much. Pain in the arse. Oddly and always cheaply engineered. And as usual the dealer stocks bugger all parts you want. Thats Citreon for you.
Later I order some Depeche Mode tickets. Christ they had been on sale for at least 4 days. NEC Friday had sold out and also Monday at Wembley!. Luckily I'd rather travel to Manchester even on a Thursday night so that's what I booked. Unfortunatley no staanding tickets left. But thats not a really bad thing anyway at the MEN.
