Johnny Cupcakes did it again - an ace acoustic show, this time with Less Than Jake. Thankfully there wasn't a balcony for any idiots to jump off like the night before so the show ran smoothly!
There were only 50 spaces up for grabs through a competition on Instagram...Mr P & I were jammy enough to be part of the lucky bunch...yay!
It was brill to hear acoustic versions of the songs I'm used to hearing as loud punky ska & looking at everyone else's faces they were just as chuffed! After the show the whole band turned up for a meet&greet so we got a few bits signed & a photo before heading back to our lovely new home for a bit more unpacking!
Phew! What a whirlwind week!

Well we spent our 2nd Valentines Day as a married couple in a mosh pit jumping & singing along to how love sucks! As you do...
(Thanks to RBF twitter for the shot above!)
I'd been waiting for this gig for ages & even though it's not Adam's favourite music, he did his husband duties & came along :) I love Reel Big Fish...ever since being taken to my first rock gig at Rock City in Notts in first year...once I realised I wasn't going to die & they played Take On Me I was hooked! Ha! I've never seen Less Than Jake though & I'd always said if they ever toured with RBF I'd be there...& there I was!
After jumping around & getting covered in beer, sweat & goodness knows what else during RBF we moved to the back for LTJ. They came on stage...managed to get through a few brill songs then an idiot decided to jump from the 1st balcony into the mosh pit....the gig stopped...the band went off & we had to wait 30min for security & an ambulance to arrive....eventually he was stretchered off & once the place wasn't declared a crime scene the gig began again.
What we heard was ace but it wasn't the end of LTJ excitement last weekend...more on that another day!

As if out week wasn't exciting enough we had a date at the 02 with a Mr Frank Turner.
We weren't going to go cos we were being snobby about it being a bigger venue than we were used to but I got itchy feet & needed a good old shout along so we thought why not?!
We only bought tickets a few weeks ago so we were right at the back...yes I was jealous of the people jumping around with standing tickets but I did my best to have a bit of a boogie in my seat!
We arrived to hear the end of Flogging Molly's set which was brill - I'd love to see them again but in a smaller venue. Frank's set was awesome, hit after hit...I shouted, jumped (& yes even cried!) along.

Being the daredevils we are Adam & I have taken part in another of the most stressful things to do...we've moved house! Yay!
At 8:30am (on the dot!) the removal men showed up & started piling our worldly goods in the back of their lorry. I knew we had a lot but I really didn't expect that much! Yoink!
Home sweet home :-)

Surrounded by boxes last night I was having a break (but no kitkat *sigh*) & was idly flicking through Facebook when I saw THIS link to a buzzfeed list of British People Problems. I hope it wasn't my lack of sleep & frazzled brain that made this as funny as I thought it was but there were a few ones that really caught my eye.....
I've done this so many times while my nose has been stuck in a good book....another one's when running for a bus & it pulls away as you're still running...you try & jog it off & look cool like you'd never wanted that bus in the first place. Mug.
I hate this....it's only happened to me twice but both times it resulted in me paying full price for something I hated then going to another hairdressers to get it sorted out & having to pay again!
Adam claims he's indifferent too....hmmmm no comment!
This used to be me till I moved to London...now I just go hell for leather if anyone takes longer than a millisecond to decide to go....usually with my hand on the horn too. Yoink!
Did this the other day!
I love the little things that makes the Brits so random...gotta love them stuff upper lips!

Yesterday was a sad day...my little toasty maker that has seen me through many a drunk/tired night gave up the ghost *sigh*
While packing up the house we decided on a baked bean & cheese wonder & ended up with a disaster on a plate...such a shame! I was even more gutted I didn't get to make my banana & nutella (which I'd bought especially!) toasty for desert...nooo!
Anyways onwards & upwards...a new house calls for a new shiny toasty maker. It won't be long till I'm back on the fish finger & cheese culinary delights once again! Who says once a student always a student?!
