Saturday started well also. I've been unhappy with the sound i get from my amplifier for a long time. Not that there's anything wrong with it, it's just that it doesn't have that x-factor that Fender amps used to give me. So i tried using Gumtree for the first time and posted a free ad on Wednesday evening with a view to selling it and buying a Fender amplifier. Great news, a gentleman from Glasgow contacted me and offered a swap for a Fender supersonic Amp! a higher spec amp than i originally thought I was going to be able to afford. He came over, we tried the amps and did the deal. What a sound! that crystal clear fender 'spank' each time you hit the strings.

|Now we're Supersonic!|
The Mesa was chunky but this thing has 10 Valves!! mental! the transformers are huge and the reverb tray is twice as long - most excellent!! can't wait to give it a spin with the band on Tuesday!

I was staying in on Saturday night as Kate was going to a neighbours party and spent the early part of the night catching up with people via facebook and phone. Just as i thought the night was winding down, Kate arrived home around eleven o'clock to declare she was going to bed and i had been invited to the party also. Had a great time and spent a nice couple of hours getting to know some Haddington locals - good bunch of people. Mind you i was home around 1:30 and my body is telling me today that i might be getting too old for 2 late nights in a row these days.
Got up on Sunday and we decided to take a refreshing walk in Pressmennan woods. That's the best thing about where i live, there are loads of interesting places to root around. Pressmennan is one of these, owned by the Woodland Trust, Its a wee fairy land, full of carvings and Elf houses cut into trees and the lads ran riot.
