And so the end is nearโ€ฆ

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 ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

So we’re back on the road and one word sums things up SNOW โ›„๏ธ SNOW โ„๏ธ AND MORE SNOW โ›„๏ธ

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

Homeward bound ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ โœˆ๏ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

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

Birthday and Back on the road ……… or should that be sea ?????

So for the 3rd year running being on tour for my birthday was the “thing” though this year I wasn’t leaving till the afternoon.

Thoroughly spoilt IMG_3851IMG_3853IMG_3857IMG_3858Cards alone showed that, present wise case of what didn’t I get from friends and family etc, Soap n glory gift sets, snow white lipgloss, stationary, necklace, sweets, bowie book, keyring, perfume, money box, address book, belt, labyrinth framed print , satchel, cuddly lamb, , and sweatshirt from jilted generation.

Off to Heathrow in the afternoon and onto Newark for a layover then finally got to the hotel around 2am Saturday morning


We have to be at Port Canaveral for 2pm and set sail at 4pm, this is my first ever cruise and a work trip to boot ๐Ÿ™‚

Nassau for the day on Monday and I can’t wait


On the road again

In 5 days roadlife 2018 starts again , well I say starts I have to leave for Florida that afternoon ….. any other time I’d be dying to get back to the band but having to leave on my birthday before I even have time to cut the cake I am not impressed .

Only plus side we are doing a festival on a cruise ship my first one ever so I suppose I shouldn’t grumble too much

Sunday depart port at 4pm

Monday Full day in Nassau

Tuesday Full day in Half Moon Cay

Wednesday full day at sea

Thursday back to port at 8am

Friday back to the UK

Anywhere is better than the cold days of the UK mid 70’s is better than sitting here with the heating on and a hot water bottle to stop the shivers

So expect photos of beaches and oceans lol
