Things don’t always go to your plan…

Hi Everyone, I’m just sat in the cooperative ‘run by the people’ pub waiting to go to the the spiritualist church in an hour and then I’m finally getting to see the film ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. I’ve got less than three weeks left in Hebden Bridge and I can say that I’ve really enjoyed my time […]

Stop, in the name of love…..

Hi Everyone, I’m finally living alone in Hebden Bridge, going for walks in the woods and really having some rest and downtime. I was meant to be working this last week for the charity Lost Chord singing in old folks homes in Sheffield and Rotherham in Yorkshire but woke up on Monday with no voice […]

Hi Everyone, I’m sat in the Eurostar terminal in Brussels waiting for the train. I’m going back to the house in Hebden Bridge today. I really enjoy living alone and haven’t had the chance since I left Belgium in 2016 so I’m glad I get the chance again even if it is only for 7 […]

It’s break time……pressing the pause button.

Hello Everyone. I hope you are all well and had a nice Christmas and New Year. I had a pretty full on December, going from place to place the whole month. It was good but I’m absolutely shattered now from a year of constantly being on the move. I lived in 38 different places, visited […]

Feeling the strain of following my heart……


Blog

I’m sat in my room in Bushwick in Brooklyn and I had just nearly finished my blog post and the computer just suddenly closed down Firefox and I lost it all. I was nearly finished and the only time I haven’t saved it as I’ve gone along. It’s been one of those shitty days tbh. […]

Cause I’m free to do what I want any old time


Blog

Hi Everyone, I’m in my own little world today. Very much ‘do not disturb’ going on and having some time to myself. I’ve been moving around so much recently that I just need to focus a bit and get organised and things planned in my head down on paper so I can feel a little […]

Feel the fear and fricking do it anyway…….


Blog

Hi All, I’m just sat in my friends apartment in Belgium. I was singing at a ‘white picnic’ event this afternoon in Knokke, which for all who don’t know is a wealthy part of Belgium where the ‘bourgeoisie’ live. I was asked by a man I’ve sang quite a lot for over the past few […]

Back in the Blighty hood…….


Blog

Hi All, I’m in Derby at the moment with my friend Gaynor (Pride and Prejudice Colin Firth part of England). Just back from singing on the streets again over here. It’s been a while so it was nice to do it again. I had a few requests for Puccini and a couple of ‘thanks me […]

Hello Everyone, This is my last new York blog post for the time being. I have only 4 more nights here (boo flippin hoo). Gosh, I really felt it earlier today. Sat in Union Sq watching the world go by with tears in my eyes just thinking about leaving. I went to the soup kitchen […]

The Big Apple Part 5

Hi Everyone, I like doing my blog and telling my story. I never thought I would be a writer but I do enjoy writing about what I’m doing but I’m gutted that ANOTHER two weeks has gone by. It’s going too fast. The people who know me really well know I have spent the last […]

The Big Apple Part 4


Blog

Hello Everyone, I’m just sat in my sublet in Bushwick, Brooklyn listening to an 80’s playlist on Spotify as I write. Whitney Houston and all that. I’ve been here for just over two weeks and I really like living here. The area is cool and down to earth, with a good community vibe and I […]

The Big Apple Part 3


Blog

Hello. Just spent the last few hours here and this is my view right now. I’m just sat in Bryant Park not that far from Times Square. There are loads of little parks here with seats and you just rock up, get on the internet and people watch to your hearts content. There’s some Shakespeare […]

The Big Apple Part 2


Blog

Hello from New York, a loony bin of a place where anything goes and if you feel like expressing yourself in whatever way you want, get on with it. Noone will make you feel bad or strange for it. You need to talk loudly on your phone having an argument, do it. You need to […]
