Glasgow, Scotland, 19 February 2011
I woke up at Callum‘s place at 6 am, though my head was going to explode. I still had a headache. Still a migraine. 2 hours later when Laurence and Ozzy were awake, I finally felt better, probably cos I had a shower and I knew I was going to get some food.
We wanted to take the bus, but it was raining, so we took a cab instead. it was waiting while we were on our way to the bus stop. We arrived pretty early, so we had scrambled eggs on toast first and then we got a train earlier.
We arrived in Glasgow at about 12.30. Our room in the Thistle hotel was ready so we could check in. Only Ozzy‘s bed was still missing. (It got placed later that day). We went to see what the swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room & sunbed looked like. We spend there a few hours. I felt a lot better. Finally my headache was gone.
We went to have a look at the venue at about 3pm.
We saw Kevin there. We met Rob Harvey. And Cassell was there as well. I gave Cassell and Kevin a hug, and wanted to give Rob a hand. He just stood there. After what felt a very long time he finally decided to shake my hand. Very awkward.
We went to get some lunch at Yates. I had a bowl of chips, Ozzy a hamburger and Laurence had a Hotdog. Time to go shopping for a a pair of trousers, I went to Primark, and found one that was just perfect. They were only 8 pounds. It was nothing. But Lizz told me that I had to tell her, I would get discount. Sweet, but it wouldn’t have been much discount anyway. Thanks tho!! Then we went to HMV, but didn’t see anything interesting. Time to go back to the hotel, to chill before it’s time for the gig.
At 6pm we went to the have a look for dinner, but we saw Shep & Jamie, and decided to skip dinner and have a few drinks instead. Poor guys were feeling rough from last night. Hope they survived the whole gig.
At about 7.15 Ozzy, Laurence and me went inside the venue. I got 4 passes for the 3 of us from them. I could have sold the 4th pass, but I couldn’t be arsed. We all had to go to the toilet. Ozzy and I were finished and waiting for Laurence, while a guy came over to us asking where the toilets are. I told him, my toilet is here. Not sure where yours is. So he asked Ozzy. That guy was confused and said, oh sorry I thought you were from the crew. Hahahahaha I wish! We were both wearing Streets merchandise.
Soon Engine Earz, the support act started. They were so good. I just want to see The Streets. 🙂 Also Anna said hello, but we would meet up after the gig.
Always remember when you throw beer, it’s the key to throw accurate!
During the gig, Ted gave us some wristbands. That was for after the gig. Mike asked about Shep… Who cares 🙂 I was there :p hahahaha Anyway, i didn’t know where he was. I heard later that Shep & Jamie were watching the gig from the balcony.
It was all a bit confusing, Ted, we, the security, everyone was confused. Anyways after about an hour we knew what was going on. we got sent to the Polar bar in the venue and we sat down, and Ted & Mike came over to us. And Tim, Kevin, Rob & Stuart. Tim said that Rob wanted Holland to win the World cup last year. So did we 😉
My bikini is now officially retired.
Mike told me I needed a Union jack dress now. “Like Ginger Spice” I said, “Yeah!”… Mike said…. Hmm, NO! I have to think about it. I have a flag, might just get creative with that. I showed Mike my iPhone. It has a blue skin with the yellow lighter on it. Mike said “Wow, that looks smart!”:)
I got a photo taken.
Also a photo with Beat Stevie
Also Laurence did a very good job as photographer.

Me with Ted
Laurence got a few photo’s taken with the boys.
What an amazing day.
I heard so many secrets, one was that he was playing on T in the Park, and Mike said “you should come”. I told him that, I would love to, but that I can’t afford it after I bought my own house in Amsterdam. Then he offered to pay my flight. I can’t say no to this. Really looking forward to T in the park! Thank you so much Mike. I cried. OMG!!!
Also he told me that he had a 2nd baby coming up. I’m well excited for him and his wife Claire.
Another amazing Streets weekend. Scotland this time. Will see you next week in Birmingham.
The next day February 20th we went back home to Amsterdam.
