Monday 10 December: Playing Stylist/ Prop lender

Fun evening helping  Martin Gooch  in his latest film project. The dressing room turned into a prop centre to dress all his actors and extras on Saturday. They left with many bags full of cloaks, horns, headresses, wigs, feathers, ruffs...the room is still full but hornless ;) Cannot wait to see the results

Tuesday 11 December: Mortal Engines

That was epic, a fantastic surprise. I loved the moving cities, especially their futuristic vision of London, very Star wars meet Mad max and i will never look at St Paul the same way

Saturday 8 December: Nightwish

On Saturday Simon went to kent as he was playing a gig at Emma and Glen renewing wows/party and Andy came to stay in the afternoon so he could have a rest before the gig. He is saldy very unwell, we had a lovely catch up, playes gamne and then made or way to Wembley.

The first band Beast in Black was amusing, some song but the singer was a bit silly and cheesy .
Nightwish, once again an epic, fantastic, amazing gig. I have seen & loved them through all their various changes and Floor really has added even more energy . I did really like all their fantasy backdrops last time they played wembley and this time it was even more awesome, we went underwater, in the sky, in the snow, inside books, funfair and of course they played all my favorite songs. Still smiling and all the flames and fireworks are a good warm up to Rammstein next year

Sunday was relax with games with Andy, then he left and Simon returned and in the afternoon Paul popped round .

Saturday 1 December: Krampus parade

Thta day was the first one of a week of event and it was happening in the suburb of Salzburg. I was expection some cool ones but not to that scale. Over 40 groups from various alpine places , all together 900+ Krampus and each one as amazing as the next. All the details, especially in the wood carving of the maks. Not 2 were the same, some danced, some paraded, some attacked us, chirldren were scared, hats stolen, gates jumped, whipping everyone, one even gave me a nose bleed by pinching my nose :)
It was mental and fantastic, so hard to catch photos as they move so fast.

SalzburgSt. Peter's Monastery & Cemetery & Catacombs [Dec. 5th, 2018|07:48 pm]

Saturday 1 December: SalzburgSt. Peter's Monastery & Cemetery & Catacombs


Lunch followed by onto another cemetery this time St. Peter's . Literaly at the feet of the fortress, shame the rococo church currently closed.

The cemetery has an unique setting in the mountain and is one of the oldest in the world. Very colourful between the plants and the gilded iron crosses.www.salzburg.info/en/sights/churches-cemeteries/st-peters-monastery-cemetery
Very unusual catacombs as they are up some stairs, inside the mountain. They date back to late antiquity, the caves served as both hermitages as well as burial sites.
As you exit you perfectly passed at one of Europe oldest restaurant so perfect to have a mulled wine before going to look for Krampus

still time to venture in another very autrian drinking place http://www.restaurant-stieglkeller.at/en

Saturday 1 December: Salzburg St. Sebastian’s Cemetery

Our apartment was great but sadly the plumbing was not, so no working loos, luckily we found a flea markets with loos to have a wander and go to that morning.

St. Sebastian’s Cemetery : so many amazing skulls , with snake in eyes, winged, with cherubs...

Also full of sulky babies, it also has occultist /astrologer/father of modern medicine Paracelsus grave and lots of beautiful graves. Lovely lunch in Die Weisse
