In a word… ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH! (not enough A's perhaps)
Germany has not been good for my post tour sanity. Upon my return to work, I have realised that taking a holiday is a bad idea – even though I was paid the whole time I was there (hahaha)... There was more ex-tree in my in-tray than was used to make the table I work on! I long for the care free days of Traben-Trabarch and the wine and beer of the hostel. My payroll has gone a bit screwy because of certain mishaps, but hey… these things happen. Instead I have caffeinated mornings and bacon batches in replacement of music and alcohol.
Whilst there are a few things I am glad to be back for (Lia), I would still love to be workless. I will definitely miss those people I was hanging around with, and also miss the gossip that spreads like wildfire through the Music Centre people!
It seems to be that Music Centre couples that start out on tour, last for a couple of years (if not longer)... so the new couples (you know who you are ;-)), good luck to you!
Keep in touch people!

Well, what a tour. That's probably the most fun I've had crammed into one week…. well, almost.
I had a fantastic time touring Germany and Belgium with the Wind Orchestra and Brass Band. I must admit, the people I know from these societies are among the best friends I have ever had.
My tour highlights were abducting Barry the Squirrel, and giving him an adventure, with Colin, Joe and Naomi; getting wasted on 'free' wine, getting one of the kit parts right that I had not got right previously(!), and getting absolutely hammered on wine on the last night with Joe, Lu, Mark, Lesley, and Naomi.
I am sad too that I am unlikely to see a few people who I consider close friends, again, such as Racquel, Alicia, and Mark, amongst others. Thanks to everyone who still 'accept' me as part of the Music Centre, even though I am not a student anymore! Will I ever leave?? Great Job on a tour well done to the committee, and to the Ents organisers. Good luck to everyone who is not here next year, and I'll see most of you in September hopefully.
