I'm off!

Just a quick post to say I really will be missing in action for over a week.

First up, mum has her operation this week so we leave on Monday and drive home after her op on Wednesday. Then Thursday morning, I get in the van and drive to one of my favourite events of the year The Rhythm Riot.

It was all a bit scary this morning when we heard that the company that runs the site where it is held had gone into administration, but it turns out that things will operate as normal PHEW for all the people going to the Rhythm Riot, that would have been a disaster as both the bands and the customers travel from all over the world to get there!

So although I work 15 hour days there and don't get any chance for fun, I am looking forward to catching up with lots of old friends, I'll be meeting some people I've never met before but know really well online, which is weird! If you are going and we know each other online but not in person please tell me, I'm rubbish at recognising people from photos, I have the memory of a goldfish and I'll be tired, so shake me really hard by the shoulders and shout your name at me.... only kidding but please say hi. We have our stall at the back of the main hall in between the record stalls, this is great as we get to see ALL the bands from a great vantage point as we're up some steps, BUT it means we're open from 11am to 2pm yep people that long!!

I would promise you pictures and video but this is one event I know it won't happen at, I'm just working too hard, sorry!

Oh wow I have no pretty pictures for this post, boring huh?! Sorry! See you on the other side......

Fiona - I'm so glad you figured out how to be there for you mom's operation (good luck to her!) and be able to attend The Rhythm Riot too!

p.s. I'm kicking myself for doing a post on online sellers, and neglecting to add Notorious Kitsch. But I'm going to remedy that right now!

I hope your mum's operation goes well.

Hugs to you and your mum. Although, I have every confidence that you and she will be tip-top! :)

Isn't it great, meeting new people and seeing old faces at the event you're attending. That's good on all accounts.

Take care, and will look forward to reading about your return when you do...

When I heard Pontins went into bankruptcy, it was a day after I spent $1300 on a plane ticket to go to the Rave! I emailed Jerry and asked him that even if he has to move the rave, not to change the dates! haha! He assured me that it has happened before and that the company will probably just change hands and the Rave will not be moving.

Have a great week!

Thanks for all the good wished everyone!

Kim - I know, scary huh? Worse cos us traders always buy in extra to sell there and that would have been a nightmare! But ALL is well, nothing to worry about!
