Tour Blog 11: Norwich Arts Centre

29 October, 2009 | Posted in: journal

Following a jaunt around York, myself, James and James spent 2 days at our good friends Belinda O’Hooley and Heidi Tidot’s house in Golcar, Huddersfield.  By the time we got there, all of the aching and sinus issues that go hand in hand with being on tour had caught up with me. S o I spent the majority of our time off sitting and being fed.  But whilst in mild discomfort and exhaustion, I made the most of being ill amongst nice people.  I was able to re-acquaint myself with Mavis, Belinda’s infamous cat.  Motherhood seems to have softened Mavis somewhat, and whilst she has gone up a dress size since the birth, she appeared to be content.  I also met Mr Magoo, son of Mavis and the only teenage kitten to be still living at home with his parents.

After our mini break, myself and the James’ set off early on Thursday morning, across the Yorkshire Dales and down to Norwich.  We arrived at Norwich Arts Centre very early, and had a lovely lunch with my university friends Deleh and Steve and their 2 children.  Post lunch James barricaded himself in the dressing room to get some sleep, and I set off into Norwich to search for various sore throat remedies that I’d been recommended via Facebook.  By the time I reached the middle of Norwich however, I realised that I wasn’t ready to be in the outside world yet, so I headed back without any manuka honey.  Back at the Arts Centre I ate cake with the rest of our band who had arrived from Devon.  The arts centre is attached to a church, and the acoustics of our gig turned out to be very atmospheric.  We enjoyed our gig, especially the support from Canadian singer Amelia Curran.
