The photograph below was sent to me by Louise Halvardsson, who saw the shop on her recent holiday. Would you want a tattoo from a place called Clowntown?
On Saturday Lou was reading at the Wedding Present's At the Edge of the Sea Festival. The event was at the Concorde 2, and Lou was the first performer on the main stage. The readings, organised by Short Fuse, were stories based on Wedding Present songs, with Lou writing a piece based on I'm from Further North than you are. Lou has been writing some great stories lately, and it was exciting to see her performing at an unusual event. Lou has blogged about the event here.
It's been a busy weekend: swimming in the sea, revisions on the novel, visiting the tip, and moving my library from storage to my new room. I also visited Metrodeco, where I had Lapsang Souchang and a massive meringue. I'm loving being back in Brighton.
