Going Spooky for Halloween!
After Show Halloween Cup Cakes!
I’m now in full swing with my Enchantment and Halloween shows doing my best to keep singing. This weekend I have a couple of shows booked in Leighton Buzzard and Aylesbury which I’m looking forward to performing very much although in this current Covid world it’s not easy trying to maintain my living.
Sometimes it’s good to try something new and this week I started working as a delivery driver for Hermes. In reality I think it’s unlikely the hospitality sector will open up properly before Easter and that’s only if a vaccine can be found. What-ever happens it’s important to keep working and as I’m a woman with a van I thought working as a delivery driver might be the perfect fit to tie me over to better times.
It’s hard brutal work and although I don’t mind the sorting, lifting, carrying and driving it’s actually the I.T. side of the job I find the most challenging. All parcels have to be scanned using my mobile phone and then scanned out once the parcel has been delivered. It’s also important to take a photo of the person receiving their parcel too and once that is done you can then move onto delivering the next parcel. Thursday was my third

day but it didn’t go well. My I.T. went down and it wouldn’t let me deliver any further parcels.
On the previous day I was delivering around Pitstone using my Sat Nav. Pitstone has a new housing estate and sometimes Google maps don’t tally with what is actually there. I’ve also noticed road designs can change on new housing estates with roads blocked off in reality with-out openings. Determined to deliver all my packages I went back home and had a look on my computer. It helped fill in the blanks but even so I was out all day and probably spent more on fuel than I would have earnt.
I’m not very good with technology and I thought this job might be away for me to face my demons and learn something new. However after Thursday I’m probably better to stick to what I know best which is entertaining people. I hate to be defeated, but at least I gave it ago and I really ought to be concentrating on my business. There is always plenty to organise and my next big

challenge is to learn how to do zoom. A couple of my clients have asked if I can perform my shows this way so I just need to find someone who can teach me.
Tomorrow I’m performing my Halloween show as a Driveway concert in Phoenix Close, Leighton Buzzard. The weather looks like it might be OK at 4pm which is when I’m booked to sing. Today I went out and bought myself a couple of flood lights as the light will fade quickly and it’s important the end of the show doesn’t get lost in darkness.
This week my photos arrived from my 1960s photo shot with Angela Adams. I shall leave you with a few of my favourites.
