Despite a large infusion of alcohol Mrs Anson doesn't do hangovers! :lol:
As for post area blues - I find that if we've done well then I tend to get the blues (in the sense that I don't want it to end) a little as non-banders in your everyday life just don't appreciate your achievement, it's like a foreign language to them!
However if the result isn't too great then I'm actually pretty glad it's all over and don't even attempt to tell non-banders what I got up to at the weekend.
After our Area result this year "getting the blues" is putting it mildly! :cry:
I do feel a big anti-climax after any contest, regardless of our result. The first rehearsal back is always a bit ropey and I often wonder how a set of players that played so well [generally speaking] at the weekend can get to be so rubbish so soon! :shock: But it's generally just a post-contest hangover (playing wise that is - my beer hangover after this year was a VERY big one :guiness )
All part of the rich tapestry that is banding I suppose..........
I found playing at this years area very emotional. The lead up to and including starting to play, but once we had finished i was a complete wreck. it was really weird. couldnt stop shakeingand stuff :cry:
but within half and hour or so, i was back to my normal sane, quiet self :lol:
cant wait for the next one now :lol:
yes i guess after such a big build up, it is an anticlimax but i have to say i was counting the days 'til we got to play something new!!bashing away at Coventry variations for two months solid rendered me a jibbering wreck!! :hammer
i am glad its over , but disappointed at the result. :cry:
havent got time to get the blues!! :? My band are asking whats next? can we do pontins/ aCD or more entertainments contests!!
As for the training band, They have decided that they ALL want to do solos , duets and quartet contests....... now the senior band do too!! boy have I got my work cut out!! :wink:
