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.

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.
