Back in the UK - for a while.

Hello Blog.
Hello everyone who reads this blog.
Hello google-bot.
Hello world.

It's me. Daniel. Back again. Exciting, wot?

So, we're back in the UK. I arrived back here literally 4 hours before getting on to a bus to go to TeenStreet in Germany, which we (OMNIvision) were doing video and some sound and lights and so on for. After two weeks of running this event, which I will tell you all about - later, which was very cool, we came back to the UK.

10 days later, Adam, Becky and myself went across to the Nederlands for our friends Jurgens and Eleanor's wedding. Which was lots of fun. We came back after that to the the UK again.

(from that biggish place near New Zealand... um, forgottern what it's called. Aus something? Something with trailers? or something?) also came with us back to the UK, and was here with us for about a month, hanging out, working at OMNIvision, and so on.

Then 10 days ago (or so) Bridget took us over to Malta, so see the Logos Hope for a few days, and also Becky's dad and church there. I'd never been to Malta before, but Becky grew up there, so that was VERY cool. Malta is beautiful.

I'll be posting more detailed stuff and photos later.. This is just to catch y'all up to date, you know.

So. We then came back to the UK, last week.

Now for the next scattered layer of events in between those all.

Yesterday we ran the video and lights for the Northern Women's Convention, which we've been doing for the best part of a decade every year now, I believe.

On friday morning, we set up our whole smaller OB unit (the bus - aka "The Tardis") at the main office for devotions, we filmed a bunch of stories people were telling. We hadn't set up the unit in a while, so this was good to check everything was working before the Women's convention... one bad camera cable, one missing focus adaptor, not much else actually wrong.

Two weeks ago, just before going off to Malta I ran sound and we did a spill-over room for the local Baptist church - as they had a new minister arriving (for the first time in decades) and so there were a few hundred people along. I'm in the middle of overhauling our sound equipment / side-racks stuff, so it's good as well getting these smaller gigs to test things on.

I also went down to the Quinta and ran sound for them for their big 30 years Quinta+OM celebration a few weeks ago.

I do enjoy doing live sound stuff. I still wonder quite frequently if I should somehow go and do some more official training for it...

Oh well.

So, that's the grand scope of my last few months, I'll post more details soon.
