Moving along

Royal Military Band Johan Willem Friso

If there is one thing that I hate about the internet it's when it's not doing what it's supposed to do. Like ordering tickets to the tattoo (and no Janice, it's not an ink tattoo, it's a music tattoo, a military one at that). I have tried several times now and every time the site just doesn't do anything. I can see the empty unsold seats, I just can't fill any of them! Very annoying. I will have to phone tomorrow. I tried today, but they close at 5pm. 

But, the flights are booked. I will be flying on Friday night, leaving me free to work during the day and fly back again on Saturday night and then I will go to the afternoon show. This leaves the Sunday free to work as well if I choose to. And according to my current rota, the whole weekend should be a work weekend. First the ticket to the show though and then I will see what I can do about the rest. Oh, and a hotel room of course. No sleeping in a box for me! I am no cat!!


  1. I remember you talking about these military shows before. My father would love to see something like that. It's his favorite part of the Rose Bowl parade in Pasadena on New Year's Day. Hope you get your tickets!

    One of the most famous, of course, is the Edinburgh Military Tattoo - did you ever get to that?? Need to book tickets a full year in advance. They are amazing shows usually so i understand your desire to see this! Good luck with it and look forward to seeing some piccies... YAM xx

  3. Wow. I had never heard of a military tattoo! I am a real back country sort of girl. That is why I love the internet and blogging, learning new things all the time.
