Weekends at the end of January

Are almost too weird to stand! You go in the city and see these crazy people who have spent January in a monastic huddle, suddenly come to life again.

I went to some of these Celtic Connections events..The Old Fruitmarket in theMerchant City of glasgow was really good. I can’t remember wh owas playing, Chris Drevers(?) , not at all my kind of stuff..but the folky folk were good and there wasn’t too big a queue at the bar!

Went back to the Connections club in the Central Hotel, or whatever it’s called now!

Not a nice place…and some of the folky folk lost their cool in the tense heat of the battle for beer in that less than relaxed atmosphere.

But it was a worthwhile foray into a different night out for me…..still managed to find time to go into the Beer Cafe and catch up with Stevie and a few guys…

But by the end of the weekend I was wondering if we should take these breaks from the booze and the none stop enteertainment….like a marathon runner with a niggling injury…we lose the stamina to compete!!
