October 8th and 9th 2017 we went away with Mark’s parents. My baby girl Roos gave her granddad a day out for his birthday in June. Roos suggested a zoo visit (well we did in her name). Since earlier this year we have 2 Panda’s in Ouwehands dierenpark, so Roos wanted to go there and asked to bring her mummy, daddy and nan as well. So granddad did. We stayed in Rhenen (where the zoo is) for 1 night in a hotel. On monday the 9th we went to the zoo. I think that me, my hubby, and my parents-in-law liked the Panda’s more then Roos did, but she had a great time anyway.
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.
At 8.30 I phoned the room of Emma and Emma, I asked them if its ok if we leave at 10 in the morning, cos we had to drop everybody off at a different hotel. They thought that that was fine.
There was 1 Problem, Shep & Jamie were walking around the hotel… and will be back at 11…. hmm…. I asked Emma J. to text them and let them know, and they were up for it…. My own phone was broken so I had a phone from Tmobile I could borrow, but it didn’t work over here. Shep and Jamie came back on time, so at 10 am we were on our way to San Fransisco. Our last journey together.
