May 12th 2018 – Sorrento, Italy

Written in retrospect We slept late – something about being on holiday makes us both incredibly soporific – and went for ‘breakfast’ at Ristorante Sorrento. The speechmarks are there because we were too late to catch some actual breakfast food so instead my first meal of the day was a lush, fresh octopus salad whilst […]

May 11th 2018 – Sorrento, Italy

Written in retrospect Today, we caught the ferry to Capri. The marina itself is very touristy with everyone departing from the ferry being bombarded with offers of trips to the various grottoes dotted around the isle, shops selling tat emblazoned with ‘Capri’ and restaurants with pushy waiters. It’s pretty though, that’s undeniable, and we were […]

May 10th 2018 – Sorrento, Italy

Written in retrospect Mr P bought bread, meat and cream cheese so after a makeshift breakfast, we headed out for a proper mooch around the town.

We couldn’t check in to the airbnb until 3pm so we grabbed a beer and some food at the nearest restaurant in […]

On other […]

Hello! Glorious pay day is upon us again but, since we’re off to Italy next Wednesday, I’m trying to be good. However, in my opinion, spending money on gig tickets is never a waste of money so we’re off to see Shame again in Leicester in November: I t’ll be interesting to see how the […]

So, something pretty extraordinary happened this week. You may remember that way back in the mists of January, Mr P and I attended a Gaz Coombes gig in Leicester championed by Independent Venues Week, 6Music and the great Steve Lamacq. Mr P’s band had a 10 inch vinyl made especially to give to Lammo who […]
