Well slap my wrist and call me a bad girl! I've just realised that I've not done a blog entry for such a long time, the last one has grown mouldy.
Here we are in a new year, actually quite old now, and it may look as if I've done nothing since October but in fact there's been loads of stuff happening. Where to begin?
Well, first off, I'm now running a new open mic night in Portobello's lovely Skylark (details on gigs page) on the first Monday of the month and that's growing into a great night with a really diverse range of musically talented people as well as a hugely appreciative audience; all served up in a lovely environment with friendly staff, good food and a comprehensive range of things to drink. What's not to like?
A quick update on my request for Marcus to get in touch (see blog dated 16th October) – he has and we've been in contact, this time I've not deleted his email address!
There are so many things that have been happening that I can't possibly write about them all here. Suffice to say that these include a new venue for Stuart and I in the New Town Bar, several festivals, and the usual gigs in some of our favourite places. Thinking of new material for the National Portrait Gallery gig is always challenging and lots of fun.
I'm learning to play the piano and hoping to do some recording this year of new material (about time too, I know).
Sadly, for the time being, the guestbook is out of commission as it was being absolutely hammered by computer generated hacking which overloaded the system. So, I'm really sorry that it's not available just now but I'm sure that Martin will figure out a way to deal with it. I really like having a guestbook and particularly enjoyed the fact that you could post your comments up on it. In the meantime, please email me if you have any questions or comments.
You can actually join me on Facebook too and I do visit there and post on that with a little bit more regularity than I write this blog!
Until the next time, adios amigos, and have a great February.
