A strange english man wanted me to sign is bum cheek !

It´s true, I said no, not unless you give me a very long pen, not going close to your behind mister. Someone found a longish pen and I signed his lower back/ bum cheek. Maybe that is a tradition is Portsmouth, who knows, and who am I to break the rules. When in Rome.....

Apart from bum signing, Portsmouth gig was lovely, first gig with the full band playing songs from the new album so we picked a very cosy venue, The Cellars in Eastney. Everybody very friendly there, and barman gave me a Rachel crisps, we liked that.

Rachel was playing with us for the first time, so thanks darling.... she is a proper english rose like Sarah, soon I will have an army of english roses. Steve is not an english rose though, he is more chips and beans kind of man, still very english. And Alisdair Mr banjo man probably wouldn´t think it was cool if I called him an english rose either.

Someone wrote a blog about The Cellars gig so instead of me telling you more about it, I will steal one of the pictures and then put a link to the blog. ( Does it count as stealing if I am borrowing a picture of me ? )

Saw me first very english pantomime.

Hello everyone.

I went to Kings cliffe village hall to watch my very first pantomime this weekend. It was wonderfully homemade and apparently had all the proper characters in it, ( for those who don´t know, there needs to be an older man dressed as a woman, and a girl playing a boy, don´t ask me .... ). The boy played by a girl always gets the pretty girl in the end, and the woman played by a man tells rude jokes and touches her/his boobs a lot.
Then all the people in the audience kept shouting at the actors, and disagreeing with them, you would never see that in an Icelandic theatre so it took a bit of getting used to, but by the end I was screaming " it´s behind you " like a proper english rose.
Panto in Kings cliffe.

Car,train,car, plane,train and then a car !

Yes went to Switzerland this weekend. it was a long journey had to take 1 plane, 2 trains and 3 car journeys to get to St Gallen in Switzerland. Me Steve, Alisdair and Anna looked a bit sleepy when we finally got there, but we were soon woken up by Swiss cheese and chocolate. And there was snow, what more could you possibly need ??????
The gig was great and I played 5 songs from the new album, the audience seemed to appreciate the new ones and I am looking forward to rehearsing all the new songs with the whole band, as this gig was just me and the boys.

Later my darlings.

Snow-rabbit-angel-monster and me.

I made this Snow-rabbit-angel-monster today in my back garden. A man walked past and said it was a lovely snow-fish ( I don´t think he lives close to the sea.)
If there will be more snow I will make more creatures.
Any ideas what I should make next ?

Later my darlings.

I think the man upstairs might be reading my blog !

I was complaining about the lack of proper snow in England, and today there is more snow here than has been for a long time. So I apologize for saying it doesn´t snow properly here. I suggest the good people of England all put some wholly socks and mittens on and go outside and attempt to set a new record in the amount of people making snow angels in one country at the same time.

So who´s with me ?
