"I see you've brought the weather, Billy"
We drove down to Auckland in what was supposed to be another tropical cyclone, but apart from some very heavy rain ( 130mm ) and gusty winds overnight it turned out to be really rather nice!
Stayed in the Quadrant as usual, always good to us.
Mum came down so we went for a wee shop at Sylvia Park in the afternoon then went for a veg at the hotel.
Lloyd and I met Cath and Duncan for drinks and food first, which was lovely, then we wandered down to the Vector Arena. I actually really liked it as a venue.
At about 8.15 Billy came on stage and rambled away in his inimitable style for well over 2 hours. He was absolutely brilliant, I love this kind of humour and it's all lovely as a lot of it is Glasgow based, we've lived in places he talks about so really get it all! Pixie is even 'Princess Pixie Fae the Drum' ( you'll only really get this if you're from Glasgow!)
It was a fantastic night, I loved every second of it.
The photos are not great, our seats were, but they were high up and looked quite far away. With a wee camera, no flash and a small zoom they're never going to be good!
I think he looks like Santa Clause!
