Mike Skinner London 2014

London, England, 18 April 2014

Monique and I are to go to London for the weekend. To go shopping. It’s our ladies weekend, as our men are on a lads weekend in Budapest. Flight and hotel were already booked.

Then Moricz Mate told me that Mike will be playing in London in The Old Queens Head on April 18th. While I was updating my website, I discovered that we would be in London as well. I was very excited, I’m going.

The D.O.T. Birmingham 2012

Birmingham, England, 25 October 2012

Ted sorted me and Ozzy out again. And Clare offered to let me 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 in Hillegom, because Mark had to go to work, I had some stuff to do at my house in Dam because 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.

The Streets Rock en Seine Festival 2011

Paris, France, 27 August 2011

I woke up at about 7am, got the bus to the airport at 7.50. Arrived at the airport at 8.20. Got a Starbucks at the airport and at 8.45 my train left to Rotterdam. Ozzy would pick me up there. We are going to Paris.

It was a last minute add to their tour. They were replacing Q-tip. I found out last week on Sunday that they would be playing there. On Monday Ted arranged it for us. Thanks Ted! Again!

The Streets Birmingham 2011

Birmingham, England, 25 February 2011

I had the flight at 9.40 from Amsterdam, well it was 50 minutes delayed but finally at about 11 I arrived in Birmingham. Burke would pick me up.

The scary thing is, I have thought for months that I would arrive at 11, while on my boarding pass it said 10am. And in the end it was 11 anyway. When I told Burke, he wanted to know the winning numbers for the lottery haha

The Streets Glasgow 2011

Glasgow, Scotland, 19 February 2011

I woke up at Callum‘s place at 6am, 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 because I had a shower and I knew I was going to get some food.

We said goodbye to Callum‘s girlfriend Chelsea, poor girl had to work, and we got dressed and ready to leave to the Haymarket train station, Callum was still asleep. We left him a note.
