Another night on a sofa. But we’ll get to that later.
We’ll start where we left yesterday. At yesterday. After spending a day stuck in the house I decided a walk was in order. With no knowledge of the town I was in (having been practically house bound since arrival) I thought there is only one place I new the direction to.
I knew the directions because I spent days and hours designing the map on the back of our flyer (a delicious piece of A6 card that makes me proud of myself (a rarity))
Anyway. I journeyed. 30 minutes from our house, up roady hills and down roady hills and past roady restaurant eventually to Hill Square.
I even took a photo. But it had just turned midnight, so it’s not really worth posting…
It was at this point in my tired, bed deprived, sofa based (we’ll get to that) state that the thought really hit me about where I was.
But I was in a tired, bed deprived, sofa based state and so the thought was lost in the ether of stars and the glare of the KFC opposite. It’s almost romantic, if you find the boneless banquet an aphrodisiac.
So, I made to return home and sleep on a sofa. But we’ll get to that later.
I get home and fall asleep on a sofa. I told you we’d get here eventually.
Day 1 complete. Or so we thought. Correctly. Because I slept quite well.
As for Day 2 (which is the point of this post) it was spent finding my bearings and taking the occasional photo. I don’t even know how the one I’m uploading turned out because I took it on the fly and haven’t looked since. But I like surprises so it’s on here anyway.
There was a secret, secondary aim to the wandering and that was to collect the flyers, posters and t-shirts for Coal Head, Toadstool Mouth and Other Stories. It required patience, conversation and being nice to people.
All in a days work.
The box was heavy. My arms were – and indeed still are – dead but I did the half hour journey in just over an hour and a half and looked manly while doing so… So manly.
And that is where I’ll finish today’s blog. With a picture of a shirt and poster. Modelled by another lovely cast member. Containing one of the cast members from yesterday. All designed by me.
