I would like some proper snow please !

Was talking to my sister this morning an Reykjavik is covered in snow.  They were getting ready to go sledding, with hot chocolate and everything..... so not fair. So as you have probably guessed I am still in England and there is no sign of snow. Rain is not useful to me, who makes magical rain angels ???? No one.
But to answer yesterdays question about the chickens, only the one who played a mean banjo solo gets to be on the album, the rest will just keep chillin and eating sweat corn.
Grandpa Harold, yes he is very sweet, and has the coolest mustache. 

Later my darlings.

Album recording chickens and many many layers of chlothes!

Hello my friends !

The first thing I did in the new year was filling grandpa Harold´s car with instruments food and chocolate and driving to Scarborough. After having spent my first christmas away from home and really missing the snow, it was very homely to see the frozen glittery ground up there.
We spent a week in a farm house studio recording songs for my second album. The live room is in a barn so it was freeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzing all the time and we had to wear so many layers of clothes that I looked like a pink starfish (2 woolly jumpers and a pink puffer jacket tend to have that affect ). But it was also kind of cosy with  stars in the sky, a cup of tea in my hand and crazy chickens following me from the live room to the control room.  ( I promise, there were chickens following me, I will show you a video clip soon).
The songs are sounding lovely and it is all very exciting, I can´t wait to start playing some new stuff live.

Later my darlings.
