ME and Posh Boots always intend to make the most of our long bank holiday weekends - by going away.
But we usually end up staying in Wirral ... with its generic blandness, vile pub "restaurants" and unexciting bars.
The weekend just gone hacked me off for a variety of reasons.
First, Sunday night's Britian's Got Talent disgusted me when the 10- year-old girl singer Natalie Okri was put through the humiliation of being voted out of the competition. The poor wee thing was reduced to tears. Read more abiout what I think about all that in my Sam Brady blog.
Then being around and about in Wirral - and in Chester - and studying the faces of people made me reailse that we are becoming a very unhappy nation. So many people now look utterly beaten and in many cases, mentally ill. I have written a poem about that, which you can read on my poetry blog.
But actually, the weekend started off well, entertaining, exciting even...
MY pals Dicky Dunnit and Raven Smokieyes (pictured) are going to share their feelings of LURRRVVE for each other at the next Bards of New Brighton poets' and songwriters' evening.
Made of marzipan these newlyweds might be ... but they have soul.
Come join us Bards at our session on Monday 11 May, 8pm start, at the Magazine pub, Magazine Brow, New Brighton CH45 1HP.
