I am playing in a concert, that they are not allowed to attend, because it is on G.C.H.Q. property. So on Saturday they are going to visit friends near where DJ lives. So should be a nice break for them - and means I don't have to do the drive this weekend!
The house is clean and organised, so I am filling in time by doing a meme that I snagged from kudagirl ... just another of those question types. I do enjoy doing them as it makes me think about what is going on in my life, and to be able to realise (again) that there are a lot of positives.
