A Night Out at the Mechanics

Last night Mr juicy and myself treated ourselves to a very rare night out - all the way to the glamorous Burnley Mechanics to see this guy - Rich Hall. 
I haven't laughed so much for a long time - he is a funny funny guy - especially at the points where he couldn't keep that dead-pan face straight! 

There was only one slightly awkward moment when he asked the audience what Burnley is famous for - some one shouted "football" and someone else shouted "riots" - when probed further as to what the riots were about, the crowd fell silent - so he moved on swiftly!

This evening our little village knit and natter group is meeting at our new venue for the first time - a rather posh cafe that has opened in the village called "Benedict's" - never the less, I shall be there in my usual jeans and wooden clogs! I can't wait to see who turns up - so if you are ever in the area on a Wednesday evening from now on - pop in for a brew and a natter!

Right - I am off to pick up Mum, Dad and Aunt to take them all to Blackburn Market - Their Wednesday morning ritual. I am the temporary driver until my Dad is allowed to drive again in a few weeks. - Thanks to everyone who left a message about him - he is doing great at the moment - stir crazy, but great!

Good to hear your Dad is on the mend... and how lucky to have a great venue for a knitting group... even a group would be a start. And no, I won't start one, never start what you can't finish is my motto these days.

What time are you meeting, I may actually have a husband tonight to sit on his children while I come knit!!!! If not will make bogus appointments in his diary for wednesday evenings. xxx

I haven't had a good old belly laugh in ages! I prefer to watch comedians on TV so I don't get picked on in the audience! I am so pleased that your Dad is making a swift recovery. Enjoy your knit and natter tonight. x
