Quickie

Just to let you know I'm not dead here's a ten minute post.

Life is full of good things at the moment, like a well stocked pantry.

This weekend was the Moffat Music Festival, just about every pub in town (four, it's a small town) had some musical activity going on within. People came from far and wide, and I had a marvellous time. Here are some photos:



Wing and a Prayer, aka Dave (my man) and Jim in the Annandale Arms Hotel for a Blues session.

 Susie Jones and band play at a concert in the Buccleuch Hotel.
Sunday afternoon in the Black Bull, just after the accordion player left and the double bass arrived. 

My ten minutes was up about an hour and a half ago. I had to go and take a loaf out the oven and, naturally, I had to eat some of it too. Then Dave got back from fishing, and after hugs and chat I remembered I had work to do. It's so easy to be distracted these days...

But it's all about the distractions :o)

There's a lovely undercurrent of happiness here - and I'm dead glad about that.

Nice to hear from you, and that you seem to be doing well. : j

Eryl said...

Linnhe ~ ain't that so! <3

Sharon ~ I am like a wasp at a Disney World bin at the moment.

Alesa ~ must come and see your awesome ads.

Philip said...

That was short and sweet. If I met your man I'd shake him by the hand. Carry on being distracted, and tell us stuff later.

Scarlet Blue said...

Oi! Keep the noise of happy distraction down on the blog next door!

Pat said...

Both men in the top photo look fun but I'm guessing he's the one on the left. How great he plays an instrument.

I've been wondering but, of course, I never pry. Very good. Glad to hear. As Bukowski would say, "scramble two."

alphawoman said...

Reminds me of a music festival my hubs and I stumbled into while visiting Ireland. So glad to hear you are happy and baking. Don't the two go together well?

The Weaver of Grass said...

Lovely to hear of you being so happy.

Whirlochre said...

I hear the twanging of strings, the pop of real ale bubbles...

nick said...

Looks like a great festival. Susie looks positively entranced. Loaves and fishes eh? Reminds me of something.

And for the benefit of us sassenachs, how the hell do you pronounce Buccleuch?

Eryl said...

Philip ~ We'll be down your way in early June, so you never know you may get to do that.

Scarlet ~ Oops, do apologise! X

Savannah ~ xoxoxoxox

Pat ~ you guess right. It really is great, before we actually met I'd seen him playing the guitar and thought: "Now I understand groupies."

Kim ~ thank you, high praise. I'm getting lots of practise with my camera at the moment, no time for writing so it's my only creative outlet.

Steven ~ how right you are!

Parsnip ~ I like the distraction part too!

Monica ~ I do hope you like it, I tend to err on the side of indulgence when it comes to chocolate.

UB ~ I've been talking to Dave about you, he's a Bukowski fan too.

Alphawoman ~ they're a perfect match!

Weaver ~ thank you.

Nick ~ being a sassenach myself I had to ask how to spell it, much to Dave's amusement. The best I can do with regards pronunciation is: bercloo with the stress on the last syllable

Titus said...

Yay! Good to hear from you. Want some bread.

Eryl said...

Whirl ~ you've been then.

Titus ~ we ate it all, but I could make more...

Elizabeth said...

Music, love and bread

a hard to beat combo!

Put like that, Elizabeth, it sounds rather biblical, or Shakespearean.
