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

Singing Through Lock-down & Planning a 1940s Wardrobe! ;-)

On Stage in Harrow Road!

Once again this week I’ve been busy performing my Driveway concerts as I continue to lift spirits by singing around my home town of Leighton Buzzard. The weather has been good and I managed to fit thee shows in at Harrow Road, Cotefield Drive and Mountbatten Gardens. As more people go back to work most clients want their shows at weekends as I continue to work my way through my list. My Driveway Concerts have proved extremely popular and I’m now opening up the service to the surrounding towns and villages. So if you, or indeed know of any-one who would like a Driveway concert please do get in touch.

This week we saw the opening of many shops and it’s good to see life starting to return to some sort of normality, although I confess I’m not really a fan of queuing. In this current climate you have to know exactly what you are looking for to make the shopping experience worth the wait. I, on the other hand like

Thank-you for the Music in Cotefield Drive!

to browse and potter about with no particular plan, which is the thing I’ve missed most in lock-down along with visiting vintage fashion and Antique fairs.

Next week “Fabric World” re-opens and I have a list of haberdashery items I need, to finish off some of my current 1940s fashion projects. Before the lock-down my dress maker Judi was altering a vintage Lilli Ann suit for me which I had planned to take out to Normandy this June. I’m looking forward to seeing her again as I also have a dusky pink 1940s blouse in production which I can’t wait to wear.

Consider Yourself At Home!

I saw the fabric by chance in a shop in Princes Risborough and it’s covered in mischievous monkeys. It’s completely bonkers but I just fell in love with it and I knew the fabric would make the perfect 40s blouse. Fortunately I had just the right pattern and I was able to find original 1940s buttons on line at Esty which is the ideal buying sight for for any-one who likes vintage and hand made goods.

It was such a shame that the VE Day events which had been planned for this year were unable to go ahead. However I’m pleased the Leighton Buzzard VE Day event has been rescheduled to 2021. I’m already planning ahead and for some time I had been looking for an original 1940s V for Victory brooch. Last week I found just what I was looking for on Etsy which will be making up part of my out-fit for next years event. Shopping on line is a new experience and it’s amazing the treasures you can find if you take the trouble to look.

Lifting Spirits in Mountbatten Gardens!

This week I’ve been able to complete some of my out-standing jobs including delivering my accounts to my accountant and up grading my e-mail server from Incredimail to EM Client. Next week I plan to up grade my computer as it’s been running extremely slow and move it onto the modern world with Windows 10. It’s long over due for an up grade but I thought now might be the right time.

This weekend I plan to be performing on Saturday in Mentmore a driveway concert as the village sadly had to cancel their VE Day event due to the lock down and on Sunday I shall be at 99 Waterdell. Both clients have requested my “We’ll Meet Again” ATS show and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for good weather. In the meantime I shall leave you with a few photos from this weeks driveway concerts.

Keep Following and Toodle Pip! 😉
