Back on the bus

Don’t worry, I will tire of the marvel that is bus-based blogging soon. Well mentioning it at least. Homewards now, thinking sweet bus-bound thoughts of pasta, of comfy chairs and of sweet sleep. Really fancy a good long sleep for a while, maybe a few days. Starting to think about Christmas and next year now.… Continue reading Back on the bus

On the bus

Apparently as an iPhone user on O2, I’ll get priority booking for tickets (I only ever remember to buy… Continue reading Goodbye Carling Academy/The Zodiac/The Venue, welcome the O2 Academy
