Shopping at Accessories of Old!
Isn’t it lovely to see the sun and to be out again enjoying a little bit of retail therapy. Like every-one I’m looking forward to getting back to some sort of normality and now the restrictions on non essential retail have been lifted it’s wonderful to be able to browse in pretty shops and Antique centers once more. It does wonders for my morale!

my singing engagements I hadn’t been able to get any of my dates to tally. Last weekend that all changed as they opened up to the public and I had a list of goodies I needed.

This Friday it’s St Georges Day and I’m looking forward to performing two Pearly Queen shows back to back. It’s been far too long since I was last at the hair dresses so I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to make it along to “Hair by Kim” on Tuesday. Neglected lock down hair has been getting me down but after a couple of hours with Kim I felt rejuvenated. Presentation matters and it’s important I look well turned out when performing my shows. Next week I’m booked in to have a number of well over due beauty treatments as I get back to normal and work on looking my best.
Colour Restored & Hair Back to Normal!
Dates are starting to sell or be it slowly and I’m looking forward to a time when I can be out shooting and filming again. I’ve a number of songs I’d like to record and put to film so once things open up I hope to check out a few locations.
Keep Following Toodle Pip and Bye for Now!
