Hello one and all and welcome to my news page. Here you can see me as my two alter egos the ever efficient secretary Prudie Jones, Evette the Spivette and plain old little me as you catch up with all that is current in my world. Regrettably unlike Prudie my spelling is quite frightful at the best of times due to my dyslexia so I shall apologise now for anything which might be shamefully mis-spelt. In the mean time I hope you find this page fun, entertaining and informative and become a regular visitor to my site.

Kind Regards

A Voice in a Million

Back from Beautiful Bath and Onward to Bournemouth!

Me at Royal Crescent

Hello everyone and what a great week it has been. I’m just back from having a wonderful holiday in Bath – Yes a holiday! It’s been so long since I’ve had a proper holiday that is to say time out where I haven’t had to do any paper work or sing that I had forgotten what the word meant. I have rather been making the most of it sight seeing although it did rather entail going from restaurant to tea room so I made sure I went out for a good run this morning!
It’s quite rare for me to have a run of dates where I don’t have any shows but as it was my birthday last week it was a treat to get away.

Me taking about Roman Make-up at the Baths!

There is so much to see in Bath and one of my first port of calls was the Pump Rooms and the Roman Baths. While I was there I met up with a lady dressed up in Roman costume who told me all about how the Roman women made and applied their make-up – long before the days of Boots and Superdrug! There’s quite a bit to it. It’s so easy these days to slap on a bit of eye shadow and lip stick, not then everything had to be ground up and applied!
Bath is quite the place for costume so I felt quite at home there. I’ve always loved Jane Austen and Regency fashion so two other places I just had to visit was the Jane Austen Centre and the Bath Costume Museum. I even managed to be photographed with a portrait of Mr Darcy who looked ever-so like Colin Firth but then he was the best Darcy ever swoon swoon! I sometimes think that maybe Jane Austen may be more of a female thing. After I had finished the tour and looking round the centre I popped into the shop only to over hear a chap as he came in through the door with his wife and daughter say “What are we doing here?” His face was a picture of confusion of how did I end up here and why am I here?

Regency Fashion!

Like I say sometimes men just don’t get it! I did laugh to myself!

Me with Mr Darcy at The Regency Tea Room

While I was on holiday I also made a point to have tea at the Pump Rooms and to have a swish in the Assembly Rooms when no-one was looking. I can be very naughty but then I love to dance and when I see a large empty floor I can’t resit a bit of a swish! I also visited Wells Cathedral and if you click through to my facebook pages you can see lots more of my photos so if you get the chance do take a look
I’m back to work tomorrow with a “Magic of the Musicals” show booked for the Middlesex New Synagogue and then I’m off down to Bournemouth with my friend Kim as I play for Saga holidays. Kim is working with me as my sound engineer so I’m looking forward to working with Kim very much and having a good girly natter on the way.
Well I have lots of e-mails to catch up on so I shall call it a night blog wise. Thanks for following and do check out my photos. Toodle Pip and Bye for Now!
