The kid's show
This morning the girls and I tried our luck again at the markets. We went to one on the Queen's Birthday on the 30th of April and made a few Euro's by selling some stuff so we thought we might have another go. There are markets on every Donderdag Meppeldag from about 8am until 12.30pm. We got there around 8.30 and it was quite busy already. We put down our sheet and displayed the stuff. We didn't really bring that much as we had to transport it on our bikes but it was more the idea than anything else. But low and behold, we had only just settled down and the first sale was made! In the end we sat there for about two hours and made about 25 Euro...
We then went home which was just as well as it started pouring rain. I did a few things around the house while the girls played, we then had some luch and by the time that was done it had cleared up again.

So back into town we went where we first caught the end of an act for kids right at the end of our street. They would do another show later on so we decided to see if there was anything else to do in the meantime. We saw some street performers, caught the end of another act, singing in the style of the Andrew Sisters this time. We then moved onto one of the other squares but didn't like the music there and finally got back to where we started to realise we had just missed the last show! The girls were really sad but were cheered up in the end: there were some fluffy toys on the stage and the girls decided to go ask for one. And wouldn't you know it, they both got one!
Tonight I went back into town on my own, to see some of the live music.
I ended up sitting down in the main square and listened to a band called SuperQ, an all girls band. They weren't too bad, definitely the best band around town tonight! They did all sorts of covers, from Chaka Kahn to Robbie Williams. There was a bit of an embarassing moment for a couple of grils when they got up on the stage (I'm guessing they were slightly intoxicated) and started to dance. The funniest part was they had no idea that the lead singer of the band was having a jibe at them and you could see all the more mature people in the audience sniggering and some of them remembering some of their own embarassing moments. It certainly reminded me of some of mine!
