So. In usual Kat style, I find myself sat alone in a restaurant with a decent real ale and a burger on its way. The show may not start until tomorrow but oh my the agro I've had today.... A huge thank you to a well known online booking platform for cocking up my reservation so heroically... despite confirmation emails detailing the correct dates, I got to the hotel to find that said platform had booked me in for tonight and then for Friday to Sunday. I have no bed for the night tomorrow and it took an awful lot of ringing an round to find somewhere that had had a lucky cancellation for tomorrow that hadn't yet been rebooked. The staff here have been nothing short of awesome and have gone out of their way to sort it. I've even got chatting to a few who are doing the show themselves tomorrow. Let's hope that the rest of my week goes rather more smoothly because so far, it's been rather stressful.... especially after my OH rang to tell me Maude had eaten a whole donut! Seriously.... he's been alone with them for 12 hours! I shall update with constant pics over the course of the next 4 days. Brace yourselves.... pics are coming. Those of you heading to sunny Birmingham tomorrow, have safe journeys and see you there!
