Gala concert and end of year stuff

I'm writing this from the Maths Department due to Tesco cutting off our Internet this Tuesday rather than next, and apparently saying that they basicall couldn't be arsed to reconnect us for just one more week. Gits.

Still, it's been a good week. 3 barbeques in 2 days on Tuesday and Wednesday was a little bit too much, but the 3rd one being at my house certainly made sure we did all the washing up and cleaned the kitchen before we leave the house in the hands of PLU over the summer. I wonder how much of my deposit I'll get back.

Gala concert. Awesome. I walked into a lamppost on the way to the march start, but all the damage I've done is one little dent on my second valve slide, which won't be a problem. Marching round the field to Buttercup and then playing 20th Century Fox to however many people were there was amazing, as was playing the brass set. Well done to Matt and James for their solos, especially James, you seem to have a lot of fans out there. Also, special mention to the Tae Kwon Do people, although breaking a breezeblock with your bare hands is actually easier than it looks, apparently. (Never tried it myself, I'm nowhere near that good). And the finale was awesome too. 200 odd musicians on stage playing Sinatra. Although I was playing a tuba part as the promised alto sax parts didn't materialise from Big Band before the rehearsal earlier in the afternoon. Swaying in the encore – great. Fireworks – spectacular. Going round some of the first-year halls afterwards while walking people home made me feel nostalgic, and reminded me that I still have the key for my kitchen's post box from the first year, and I really ought to give it back when I give back my house keys later.

Now everything's been packed for tour and I will not return to 5 Centenary Road, I will sign off by saying thank you to everyone for making this the best year ever.

Cheers guys, you've been great.
