I left the office despondent and went home to pack for a weekend away. We were going down south to my girlfriend's folks' place. We were planning a trip to London the following day where she was due at a party and I was due to kill time in the city until it was time to pick her up - I reckoned on seeing a musical (or two) to do this.
During the packing, I got a call from the Manchester Comedy Store. They were quite happy with the gig I'd done and would be reporting back to London positively about it. I got a few technical notes from the guy who rang and it was good feedback that I should have been pleased with. I think I probably was.
We set off down south and made our way to Reading. We were in no rush and we didn't arrive too early.
