Chatham in the rain.
I had a day off on Friday and went down to Chatham to see Shirley. The weather was atrocious; I think the best part of a months' rain fell in a day. We did some shopping and ended up in Nandos in Chatham Maritime. I love Nandos - I know it is only an up market fast food restaurant, but the food is well made, wholesome and tasty. It is also the only chain eatery that uses proper spices (as you would expect, I love their extra hot seasoning). Shirley of course had hot buttered sweetcorn - her favourite dish.
On my return home that evening, I was walking from Erith station and heading towards the Tunnel of Doom(tm) when when I heard voices ahead of me. Three teenaged Chavs were scrawling graffiti on the newly repainted battleship grey tunnel walls. I shouted at them and they took off like startled rabbits. They were too far ahead of me to intercept, and anyway, I was carrying my camera bag which I was keen to keep unharmed, as I have not yet got it, or its' contents insured. I did get a good look at one of the scrotes in particular - a spiky haired ginger Chav in a hoody. Taser bait if ever I saw it.
I now have a double CD broadcast quality recording of the Twickenham Genesis gig earlier this year; drop me a line if you would like a copy - thanks to Ian for this.
