Travel Day Off. Edinburgh to Ipswich. Nov 3rd

November 3, 2017 It is a day off. My voice will reboot. A day off means no singing. We will be travelling nonetheless. We determined to leave by 10:30am Remarkably I slept beyond the time allowed to make hotel breakfast. I’m not fussed by their poncy yogurt based fruit cups[…]

Edinburgh. Usher Hall. Nov 2nd.

November 3, 2017 This morning, immediately after breakfast, I took a stroll. Foolishly, I had left my coat in the car and, for quickness, had sported my Birkenstock barefooted. The day was both bright and brisk. I was not warm. I was not clever. I followed my nose. Hard not[…]

Glasgow. The Royal Concert Hall. 1st Nov.

Auckland. ASB Theatre. 14th Oct.

October 15, 2017 6am? Oh fuck off. Why am I awake. Can’t have been more than four hours asleep. Gig tonight and energy to muster. Eyelids are decidedly drawn up like roman blinds. I decide to pack my cases. 3 nights in the same hotel and I have occupied every[…]
