Kiz: ‘That’s me, going for a swim in the North Sea. It is NOT as tropical as it looks. There are film crews everywhere, and I saw later in the paper that they were filming giant footprints on the beach for the forthcoming Steven Spielberg directed ‘BFG’ movie! Very exciting.’
Sooze: ‘With Will, Rich, Loz and Marion for a ride out on the new Tracer to Cassington. We joined up for a while with the Birmingham-Worcester-Droitwich-Evesham bike group – so riding in convoy with 30+ bikes. The occasion was Cassington Bike Night: every year on the last Monday in June, 10,000+ bikers take over the little village in north Oxford. An incredible experience. Should be in every biker’s diary.’
Kiz: ‘Islay and I are getting a haircut, with the lovely Georgia. Islay’s having a “big haircut”, as opposed to the 3mm she allowed to be cut off last time!’
Sooze: ‘At an exhibition in Stratford Artshosue about plans to convert two old townhouses next to the Arthouse into a Hotel du Vin. If all goes to plan, it’ll open in Nov/Dec 2016. Great news!’
Kiz: ‘Mortal Fools are running a whole school First World War themed Arts Week at Collingwood Special School this week. These are some fabulous folk musicians teaching the pupils songs from ‘Oh! What a Lovely War’.
Sooze: ‘While I was having an ‘afterwork’ (as they say in Spain) drink outside the Elm, this hot air balloon passed overhead so close we could pretty much chat to the passengers.’
Kiz: ‘On my way to my first Mortal Fools business meeting with my bro today, and spotted this. It made me smile.’
Sooze: ‘My road’s blocked off and full of police cars and ambulances because a guy was murdered on the street just at the end. We’re not clear on the details but it seems that at 4.15pm, a man was stabbed and left to die on the street. Five people (three men, two women) have been arrested. Between them, my neighhours saw everything. We’re shocked.’
