Yesterday we had a very long day out to Llandudno to see Super Furry Animals at Venue Cymru. We always try to go to a gig or show in December, this one came nice and early in the month. Last year we ventured out on the evening of Storm Desmond - the sea was angry that day my friends.
It was a gorgeous day so we had a stroll on the prom, did a small amount of Christmas shopping, visited the art gallery, watched the lovely Christmas parade, complete with donkeys, played on the 2p slot machines in the arcade and had a falafel kebab at Barnacles!
A first for me at the gig was to be sniffed by a drugs dog! On these occasions I'm always slightly concerned that the dog may be excited that I smell of rabbits but all was well!
I don't usually buy merch at gigs but there was an SFA tea towel. Earlier that day Dan had requested a small quilt for him to use in bed. He is a cold boy and often has an extra cover but they can tend to drag off the bed or whatever so he wants one with no overhang, if you see what I mean. The tea towel gave me an idea. The man on the stall said "you're not going to dry the dishes with that are you" so I assured him I was not and was going to make a quilt from it. "Awww, that's a lovely idea, I've never heard that before" he replied, and off I went to enjoy the show.
