And so the end is near…

So we’ve made it to the end of this leg of the tour and I have never seen so much snow in such a short time

As I write we’re in Indianapolis the photos and video were fish ladder park in Grand Rapids

So once tonight is done with there’s no sleep for the wicked – I had a choice of getting a later flight and getting home on Tuesday or leaving literally at the crack of dawn (5:30am including a layover ) to get back “home” tomorrow so being the insane fool I can be I went for that

No more road life now till end of April – I’ll probably be going stir crazy in a few weeks when I am back to the studios base after nearly a year in London and will be climbing the walls

But once April starts it’s all go to the middle of July with festivals and U.K. dates then I’ll be complaining I’ve had enough of touring !!


Niagara Falls and Montreal ðŸ‡¨ðŸ‡¦

So we’re back on the road and one word sums things up SNOW ⛄️ SNOW ❄️ AND MORE SNOW ⛄️

have only seen the Falls from the Canadian side and never frozen but it was so pretty

Quick stop in New York and then onto Montreal

Doctors ………. or rather the receptionists

Now I know that the “customer” is always right but come on when speaking to a patient we are usually one of the following :

  1. In pain
  2. Stressed
  3. Worried
  4. Sick to death of hearing Air on a G string as the hold music

So when we EVENTUALLY get through to speak to someone having to repeat ourselves 4 times DOES NOT HELP

Sent Dr X a letter last week is there anyway in finding out if he is dealing with it ?

Sorry ??

Repeats original question

When did he send you a letter ?

No I sent him a letter a week ago

So you didn’t see him he rang you ?????

Now by this point I am close to screaming down the phone engage your brain

NO I sent him a letter LAST WEEK has he got it ………….. silence

Oh yes it was scanned on the system so that’s a good thing

And ????

I’ll print it out and give it to him

So he hasn’t seen it then ?

No not till I print it out

Well can you get him to deal with it ASAP ?

Shall I get him to ring you again ?

By this point I’d had enough and hung up


You don’t have to lose the will to live with that surgery but it helps




Homeward bound 🇺🇸 ✈️ ðŸ‡¬ðŸ‡§

So the cruise is over and I’m glad to be back on solid ground again

Had a good time and it was certainly an experience not one I’d want to repeat every year though that’s for sure

Half moon cay was a lot better than Nassau and I could relax more – till I got back to ship and drank too much iced water dived in the pool and came up with trapped wind the pain was pure hell

So as I head for Orlando international airport it’s gonna be a long journey home Orlando to Washington to London landing at crazy o’clock Friday morning

Off now till 9th feb and a lot of decorating awaits

Days at sea and Nassau

So we set off Sunday afternoon bang on time

First night on board was getting my sea legs so to speak and trying to find our way round what is to be home till Thursday

Haven’t slept so well on tour in ages as I did on the boat – whether it was the rocking I don’t know but woke up totally refreshed

Today has been a shore visit to Nassau third time for me here

That was a speeded up sunset on Sunday evening

So the band are headlining tonight and we have a shore day at half moon cay tonight

I love my job but there have been times today when memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheek
