I’ve had this on a loop all day, since Spotify dropped it into my Discover Weekly list. It strikes me that, this weekend, this is the perfect track. It’s a long dreamy piece, that I don’t have to think too hard about, and it ticks all of my boxes.
Bank Holiday Monday is our 17th wedding anniversary. Monday 29th May 2000 was also the Bank Holiday. It had rained for 4 days solid – so much so that the Captain of the Thames River Cruiser we had booked was worried that the river was too high for him to get under the bridges between Marlow and Henley. Luckily, on the morning on the 29th, the sun shone, the river dropped and, after the ceremony at The Compleat Angler, and drinks on the lawn, Janet, myself and 50 close friends and family climbed aboard the boat. Six hours of leisurely cruising, food, drink and a disco and watching the world go by. It was the best day of my troubled life.
So, tonight we’re on a train into London, dinner at our favourite restaurant, then train home. Up early tomorrow to drive to Birmingham, see Jan’s Mum & Dad, then into the city for an early dinner with close friends, then Paul Rodgers at Symphony Hall. Sunday? Leg it back down the M40, drop the car at home, train into London for Paul Rodgers at the Royal Albert Hall. Monday? Sleep, I think.
Anyways, post your perfect song for a perfect weekend, and give me some idea of what that weekend might contain.
Have a great weekend everyone, whatever you’re doing.
