I’d just like to say thanks again to everybody that sent Orynthia and I their best wishes recently. It was really nice of you all to take the time.

The funeral was held on Wednesday morning, and went as well as could have done. It was lovely to see that so many people wanted to be part of the day, quite a few people travelled very large distances to join us. As well as being a sad occasion, many happy memories were recounted, prompted in no small part by the fantastic collection of photo’s, showing Don with friends and family from his days back in Burma, right up to the last family picture taken on Christmas morning, which were on display around the hall.

So now we have to get on with the next phase of our life, tonight we are going over to Cardiff to see the American band Fiery Furnaces at The Barfly. I really enjoyed their album, which came out last year, so am hoping for a good night. It’s actually a bit of a works outing for me as Mark. RLF and Beren are also making the journey. In an effort to avoid too much shoptalk Orynthia and Jane are also coming along to keep us in check.

We have quite a few things lined up for the forthcoming months, The Libertines on March 4th,Trashcan Sinatras and Camera Obscura in London on March 12th,Jonnathan Richmond on April 11th, Lambchop in Bath on April 19th and finally something a bit different Derren Brown the mentalist on April 29th.

Bristol City have managed to keep up their good form, in fact the midweek victory at Grimsby was our 10th win in row, meaning that the team are in their best run of form since 1905! That win also took us to the top of the league, so with 15 games to go, it looks as though we do have a real chance of getting promotion this season.
