I had a really wonderful weekend.
On Saturday, I was invited to my pals B-Day and he asked me to do a set for him. I was really chuffed to bits, nervous, but happy. With a few borrowed records to add on to what I already have and my limited gear, I set up and played at his party until midnight. There was plenty of food, drinks and of course music. Unfortunately, because I had to make it for Harpenden Sevens the following day and one of my pals who dosent drink was around with a car, I had to leave.
Woke up early to meet up with my pals to drive down to Harpenden. I had breakfast with them, then we set off to the Rugby Ground. It was a very windy day and we had a tent to pitch up, but it was a waste of time. Compared to Slough Sevens that happened in August, the turn out for this one to support the Kenya team was much better. Peeps turned up from Manchester, London and Exeter. There was enough Tuskers to go round, sandwiches and a BBQ of chicken like the last time. I saw few faces I hadn’t seen a while, new faces and ones that I don’t want to see again.
- It was at this event that I made my decision about who my friends really are and who are to be DELETED from my life completely. Cut off the ones that no longer have meaning in my life.
- It was at this event that I discovered the real diamonds from the fake.
- It was at this event that I realised what it means and how it feels when people take you for granted.
- It was at this event that I discovered that people always underestimated me and try to use that against me, only to figure out otherwise.
- It is at this event I realised not all of us possess the power of TACT. Even if they do, they use for self gratification and through selfish acts.
I was glad that I went to this event. It opened my eyes to a whole new way of thinking and about life in general and my real friends helped. Being around people actually helps you figure out stuff that has been troubling you. You don’t even have to talk to people, just sitting down and making a few observations help.
Back to the tournament…….Kenya didn’t do well, but the spirit was there. Rugby events are more sociable. I hope over time, such events to make Kenya Exiles UK bigger and better will continue for a long time.
For me, the day ended on a high. I finally can close my chapter of Summer 2006. Concentrate on the NEW Season and look forward to wonderful things.
After a hearty meal with my friends, I was dropped off home and I retired exhausted but happy that I really enjoyed myself.
Have a nice Monday y’all!!!
P.P.S. The 2006 Black Weblog Awards results are out. We didn’t win, but it was good to be recognised through a nomination. Maybe next year.
