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.
It was lovely to see a little flurry of snow a day or two ago although here in Leighton Buzzard we are quite sheltered. I go out running every day but sometimes I change my routine and go for a walk along the canal tow path instead. It’s a popular walk for locals especially as you can combine your walk with a trip to Tesco. Tesco’s store is located right alongside the canal path in Leighton Buzzard so you can do your shopping at the same time.
Today the snow has almost thawed away and it’s back to the old routine of running, office work and song learning. It’s a shame because I’ve been
Me with the MGA 1600 & Jaguar XK150
wanting to do a Christmas Snowy photo shoot for a number of years. Like any shoot there’s a lot to it, and it’s quite a business combining the Christmas look with snow. These shoots nearly always have to be done in February and usually at short notice. We’ve not really had any snow around here for a couple of years and due to the lock down no-one is allowed to travel anyway, so I guess it’s one of those shoots I will have to put on hold for another year.
Me in my 60s fashions with the MGA 1600!
I always believe in taking opportunities when they come and I’m so pleased I was able to squeeze in my 60s photo shoot with Angela Adams back in September between lock downs. I remember it was all very touch and go at the time and at one point I didn’t think we were going to be able to go a head; but then just at the last minute I was able to coordinate the shoot with two wonderful vintage cars from the 1960s the MGA 1600 and Jaguar XK150 which really made the shoot.
If a thing is worth doing it’s worth doing right
The Jaguar XK150
and it’s good to do shoots out in the open at interesting locations. If possible I like to include props of interest and vintage vehicles tick all the right boxes. When it comes to sending out publicity clients love to see vintage vehicles and I’m always keeping my eyes open for places of interest.
This week I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my new flicker book video for Valentines Day, Stupid Cupid. As you’ve probably guest I’ve used the photos from my 1960s shot staring along side the MGA 1600 and Jaguar XK150. I owe a big thank-you to Peter Macwaters and John Greenwood for allowing me to be photographed with their beautiful vehicles and to David Cantor for letting the shot take place in his paddock. Peter and Karen Hardicker of Everything Sorted produced the video for me and you can see it by clicking the link below.
That’s all my news for the moment as I get back to work and continue learning new songs for 2021.
It’s been good for me to go over some of my old repertoire and I plan to continue with my driveway concerts for the Spring and well into Summer. I hope it wont be too long before the world can get back to some sort of normality and we can say goodbye to Covid-19.
In the meantime thank-you for following, enjoy the video, Toodle Pip and bye for now! 😉
