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 Cards 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 🙂
Nassau for the day on Monday and I can’t wait
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
10th January 2017 was the 2nd anniversary since we lost the legend that was David Bowie
There was no where else I’d rather have been than Brixton so despite a very wet morning off I headed to the train 🚂 station in the pouring rain ☔️
The place was awash with flowers and fans already by the time I got there at lunchtime it’s lovely to see what people still want to show their respects 💐🌸🌷🌼🌹🌻🥀🌺
From there jumped back on the 🚊 into the west end to go to 23 haddon street where David shot the cover to one of the Ziggy albums
Again the place was covered in flowers
After 6 months on and off Christ knows how many miles and same goes for countries finally home
Got home Saturday morning , by Saturday afternoon voice disappeared altogether and has been like that since – not to mention having the same amount of energy as a half dead slug
Still we have just under 5 weeks off now before leaving again on 19th January (also my birthday) so I am planning on doing as little as possible – I don’t care it’s Christmas next week all I can say is BAH HUMBUG !!!!
All that needs doing is food shopping but I really can’t be arsed to battle round the OAP brigade who waddle into town for something to do / get in everyone’s way/ don’t understand the words excuse me
So think majority of food shopping will be done courtesy of home delivery for a change I might be brave enough to face Tesco at the end of the week for fresh stuff but then again I may talk someone else into doing it for me
Well here we are (or should I say there I was ) down to one more show in Italy 🇮🇹 Friday and then road life is all done for 2017 !!
Next time on the road is leaving on the evening of my birthday 🎁 in January so I have 5 weeks off all but one day
Get home Saturday and then TRY to relax whilst the mayhem of Christmas 🎄 descends upon us
Day off from the tour as it draws to an end , the boys decided to stay put a while longer so as friend of mine was in Switzerland 🇨🇭 visiting his parents so what do we do decided to go skiing
I’ve been skiing since I was 14 following the yearly high school trip but with touring hadn’t managed to go for a few years and as they say it’s like riding a bike 🏍
Only downside was I wasn’t there long enough !!! Definitely need to get in the habit of skiing ⛷ at least once a year again
