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.
I don’t really have that much to report other than I took my mother over to Stevenage last Thursday for her Covid-19 vaccination. We had been looking forward to it and we both enjoyed the run out which made a change from Tescos. The center was extremely well run and organised and at the time of booking the center in Leighton Buzzard hadn’t opened. My mother was once of the first of the over 80s group in Leighton Buzzard to receive her jab and we are all looking forward to better times ahead.
My mothers trip to Stevenage was the highlight of the week and made a change from my usual routine. This usually consists of a good morning run, phone calls and office work in the afternoon and singing rehearsals in the evening. I’m continuing to learn new numbers and practice my musical arrangements. I don’t normally get this much time to rehearse and it has been good for me to go over some of my old repertoire. I’ve been learning “Stupid Cupid”, “Puppet on a String” and Dolly Parton’s 9 – 5 to name a few while exercising at the same time. Singing and exercising together is good for my physical fitness.

It’s going to be a while yet before things get back to normal so I’m ploughing ahead with zoom shows and Driveway Concerts for the Spring and Summer Seasons. By the Autumn I hope more events will open up but for the moment the world is on hold. Fortunately I am getting bookings and I was able to sell another three dates today. It’s hard going but the work is out there if you care to look and think imaginatively.
Once the world has turned the pandemic corner and we’ve received our vaccinations then there will be a great demand for live entertainment. Every-one is going just that little bit bonkers and I’m looking forward to the time when I can perform in front of a large audience with-out the aid of a computer screen.
It’s important to keep busy and I’ve been designing new pages for my web-site including “What the papers say”. Last weekend I spent the time going through my old press cuttings and I plan to have a selection of these up on line before too long. It’s been interesting to read them again, they chart my career from the 90s through to the present day and all the things I’ve done from classical concerts to Rock and roll. It’s easy to forget just how much I have done over the years and they will make a lovely addition to my web-site.
That’s all my news for now and as I haven’t been out taking photos this week I shall leave you with a few of my favorite shots from the 1940s Control Tower shot I did with Angela Adams a few years ago.
Keep Following and Toodle Pip! 😉
