Doing the 1940s in Mitcheldean!
I’m sorry my last blog was such a dash but in truth I’ve never been as busy as I am now! Thank-you every-one for your kind Birthday wishes. I get so little time off away from work, not to mention the time I spend prepping for work, so going out for a special meal was quite the treat. Even now I have a 101 e-mails to do which all need replies and after a busy weekend away I’ve much to prep for as I’m booked to sing in Doncaster on Thursday!
First things first I would like to thank every-one at the Waterboard Social Club in Cinderford who booked me to sing for their 1940s -1960s evening on Saturday. I was booked to do 3 x 45 minute sets. One 1940s ATS “We’ll Meet Again”, one 1940s -50s Swing and one 1950s and 60s sing along, rock and roll so a good selection. On Sunday I was engaged to sing for the Old Rectory in Longhope who had hired the Xerox Sports and Social Club in Mitchelden and once again I was booked to sing the 1940s only this time I went all glamorous with my “Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree show”. We had a really good turn out and someone had put together a wonderful display of 1940s memorabilia. I love looking at old things and anything 1940s. Now I’m back home I’m thinking a head and planning for this week. On Tuesday I’m singing the 1950s and 60s again with a show in Newport Pagnell before dashing off to do a Music Hall show for a corporate event in Peterborough. In fact it’s Music Hall all the way this week as I’m travelling up to Yorkshire on Wednesday and performing for a school in Doncaster for their WW1 day on Thursday. I’m really looking forward to it as I’ve never done a WW1 day in a school before. Lots of WW2s so this is a first for me.
Speaking of which I’d better get cracking on with my lesson plan before I see my dress-maker tonight, so much to do!. Keep Watching and thankyou for following!
Toodle Pip for Now!
