A post which starts off badly but picks up by the end.
After having a sore head and neck all day yesterday, I woke up with a headache again this morning, which is never a good start. Despite getting up ON TIME I managed to leave late, miss my bus and end up being 10 mins late for work. By the time I got here I was too hot and in a crap mood. I have retreated behind my PC and am hoping that no-one speaks to me as I want to just curl up and go back to sleep.
I did actually have a nice weekend though despite all this! I was at a wedding reception on Friday night, and the Pittenweem Arts Festival on Saturday during the day with my mum and sister, which was lovely. It's a showcase for local artists and there are venues all over Pittenweem, which is a tiny wee place in the East Neuk of Fife. Some of the venues are in people's front rooms - it feels kind of strange just wandering into someone's house, but I saw some lovely works of art. I didn't spend any actual money as I'm skint, but in my head I spent a fortune.
I then went to the Jim Henson Puppet Improv on Saturday night, and oh my god it was funny! I would definitely recommend it, as it's like no other show you'll see at the Fringe. Because it's based on suggestions from the audience it's different every night and you get some totally random and/or outrageous suggestions - they will make those puppets do ANYTHING!! Apart from the comedy value, it's also quite cool seeing the puppeteers doing their thing - they're not hidden behind a screen or anything - and they're as much a part of the show as the puppets are. It must be an incredibly difficult thing to do twice a day (there's also a kids version without the swearing and shagging), and I take my hat off to them. Well I would if I was wearing one.
Seriously, this show is not to be missed - get your tickets now before it sells out, because word will travel fast.
