Terry told me that Mike is coming to Belgium in August. He will come to the festival “Feest in het Park”. Hopefully I can go, as I will be on a holiday from July11th till August 11th. The festival is from August 21st till 24th. SWEET!!! I can go. The exact date is not known yet.

A few weeks later they announced that Mike would play on Friday the 22nd. I asked time off from work. Maybe I didn’t need to, but I didn’t know what time Mike would be on. I got the friday off work. While I was on holiday in South Africa, I contacted Mike and asked him if he could sort Ozzy and me out. Mike replied and told me that he would, but I had to remind him closer to the date. Exactly one week before the festival the timetable got announced. Mike won’t be on until 11pm. I didn’t actually need time off, but it’s nice to actually relax on that day. I also sent another message to Mike to remind him that Ozzy and I would still like to go. Mike replied that he will tell the promotor. The day before the gig I received a reply from Mike that we’re on the door.

Mike Skinner Cologne 2014

Germany, April 26th 2014

Máté told me that Mike would be playing in Cologne. I’ve seen Mike there 2 years ago. It’s only 2 ½ hours drive.

Ozzy and I are going. But the same day is Kingsday in Holland. It’s the birthday of our king we’re celebrating. His actual birthday is on April 27th, but that is a sunday this year, and out of respect for people who go to church on a sunday they don’t celebrate on Sunday’s, they celebrate it that year on a saturday instead. That’s the case this year. We only have a king since April 30th 2013. he took over the throne from his mum (game of Thrones) We used to celebrate Queensday on April 30th, this year the date changed. I need to wear orange, otherwise I’ll look stupid in Amsterdam. That means I will have to wear orange to Mike’s gig too. I am not going home first.  Sorry lovely German people.

Usually everybody is always on a holiday, this time nobody was. Everybody who was invited came over. This weekend I’ll celebrate it with The D.O.T.

I saw on Facebook that Mike would DJ on Eristoff Urban Art Forms Festival this year. It is in Graz, in Austria. is it do-able for us Oz? I think I’m still not sure if it is. It’s an 11 hours drive, 12 hours as we stopped a few times. But I’m sure it’s worth it. Mike said in Amsterdam “Let’s hang out for a bit, it’s going to be a long journey for you.

Ted Sorted me and Ozzy out again. And Clare offered me to stay, luckily Ozzy was welcome too. Also Shep and Jamie, and Shep’s girlfriend Kate are coming, also Lizz and Abbie will be there.

I woke up at 7ish, cos Mark had to go to work, I had some stuff to do at my house, cos I have hardly been in for the last month. When that was done I watched “Step up”. I love that movie. I love Channing Tatum it was finished just before 9:30am, a couple minutes later Ozzy arrived. Just before 10am we left to get the bus to the airport. We checked in online already, we only had hand luggage (That was a tip we got from Mike in Solana Beach), so we got through very quickly.
