Went back to Brighton yesterday for a gig at Komedia, which as usual was lovely. I used to live in Brighton, I was there for about 7 years (I think). I followed a long term partner down there, and we lived together for the majority. When we broke up though, I lived on my own for 2 years and it was a difficult time for me. In a way, it sort of muddied my view of the place. So, it’s actually really quite nice to come back for a visit from time to time.

Seagulls are actually humungous that close up - their wingspan is terrifying and I thought I was going to die.
