    To my delight, & surprise, Joanne is still positive about a visit to the Goth Weekend

    I’ve been wanting to get there, to either event for years

    Generally, one of us has been working

    – her covering staff, who are off

    – me not able to get leave, or swap shifts

    However, this year, we’ve sorted it out

    ‘Up to press’, we’re going up on Friday evening

    Then, trying a (Tex-Mex?) diner she’s told me about, & stopping at the ‘Shed’ (ie the ‘Posh Porta-Cabin’)

    Saturday we’ll drive up, & spend the day/evening in Whitby

    A spot of over-nighting, at the ‘Shed’ again, then driving home Sunday morning

    Julia, & Hazel (sisters), a couple of friends of mine are involved with organising one of the parties there, & have very kindly offered us 3 guest-list places 😀

    (I’ve known them since about 1986, when they first went Goth, when it first really started as a ‘scene’)

    They have suggested, because generally I’ve only see them at the Hospital recently, they’d dress as Nurses for the party

    Now, I’ve seen the photographs of the pair of them dressed as Nurses, at one of their parties, whooo-boy!!!!………………………………

    Saturday was a good day!!

    Sadly, not long enough for me, as friends had to leave, & had left things at the Shed, so we had to go back too

    There was some fantastic costumes in evidence. mainly of the Goth, & SteamPunk genres, but plenty of others too (including one rather portly, short, chap dressed as Judge Dredd!!)

    Again, sadly I didn’t bump into my buddies; Hazel & Julia, who offered us the guest-listing

    Nor did I see Angela & Mick (the Duathletes/Triathletes I know, who sometimes go)

    Took some photos, but not as many as I’d have liked, it was just too busy to get a good position

    Recognised a few outfits there

    Sorry for some odd exposure settings/ & slightly out of focus images

    I’ll add a couple of Hazel & Julia later, when I’ve seen their party images

    Yes it is, this coming weekend

    My friends, Hazel & Julia, are heading up today, to get sorted out, for their parties, & to socialise with people they may only see at the events
