Thread: Boo!

    Hey Gang

    It's been a while! Just having a read through some of the threads and acquainting myself with what's been going on. Seems like ages since we were around!

    It also seems that a lot of people have been through the mill recently, from what I've read on certain threads. Unfortunately we've had a few things going on too which have caused our absence.

    I've been absolutely stacked at work over the last 6 months or so. Overuse of the computer at work means the tendonitis in my right arm has flared up and I can't play bass.

    We also suffered a bereavement a month ago - Trev's mum died very unexpectedly after a short and painful battle with pancreatic cancer and neither of us have taken it very well. He was there when she passed and I didn't have the best of relationships with her - so both of us have different reasons for guilt. Even if I was physically able to play, both mojos are gone, so to speak.

    However yesterday Trev picked up his guitar for one of the first times this year (as she fell ill in January) and I think it's coming back to him. We've both been on the forums today looking at pictures and hopefully making plans for the UK Bash in June - although we don't feel like we deserve to go. My bass is going to get a thorough Wonder-Wiping tomorrow and a new set of strings. We'll see where it leads.

    I hope everyone here is keeping well and that I'll be back to nag regularly

    Good to see you.

    what's this nonsense about not going to the bash?

    psh. I WISH I could go to the UK bash. I'd probably bring my guitarist friend too. He's a fender freak.. what better way to convert him?

    Listen to The Man.

    The Man is right.

    It's an important part of healing.

    All the best! We've missed you and it's great to have you back.

    Hey Arianne

    Sorry to hear about Trevs mom, and about your arm, but I'm confident you two will bounce right back, being young and all

    Why not come to sweden, you know you have a place to stay, and yes you must of course come to the bash!

    hugs and stuff

    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    Soryy to hear about your losses, and a hope you have a speedy recovery! There is not a reason in the world you don't deserve to do anything, so get that out of your head right now. The way I see it, when life throws you a bunch of lemons, make some lemonade! Get back into the swing of things and put your guilt and feelings behind you, its the only way to heal, besides going to the bash!
