WE’RE up early and have breakfast with Ruben and Alison, chat a while then they hit the road.
There’s one more gazebo to get up for this afternoon’s garden concert. We get that sorted and all the other preparations – luckily the forecast heavy rain all day still hasn’t hit us.
JonZip and Maggi arrive just after 12.30pm and once we’ve had a sandwich help with the final prep. We both manage a quick soundcheck and then I get the livestream set up as folk start to arrive.
The garden is full by the time I introduce JonZip at 3pm and he plays a stormer of a 45-minute set.
Next up, it’s myself, and I too have a blast. There’s plenty time once the music’s finished for everyone to mingle, chat and have a few drinks.
Everyone’s gone soon after 6pm when JonZip and Maggi help us with some of the clear up then we go indoors and have some snacks while the pizza dough I balled up earlier gets to room temperature.
We go back outside for pizza, chat and beer then back inside for a few drams. Grand day/evening.
