This an incredibly exciting thing!!

Are you into the arts? Bit of cabaret? Ever fancied getting up on stage and having a bloody great sing?

Well, I am, I’d love to. Unfortunately due to weird random things growing on my vocal chords I can’t.
But I tell you who can.
Yes, Sharron Matthews.
Check out her link below and it tells you everything you need to know.

Sharron Matthews cabaret Superstar

Now, I’m not affiliated in *Any* way and I don’t get a benefit from this, apart from knowing the Sharron gets to do something amazing.
And when this is done, the potential for her to do even more astounding things is also there.

(Like, I would lover for her to be able to come back to Europe, but it’s bloody expensive…)

So, if you have a few quid/dollars/funny shaped stones with holes in to spare, this is a great cause and will spread the joys and skills (she does workshops too you know.. getting the youth into the stage and performance)…

Plus, she is awesome, witty and pretty fierce.

Background (just because it helps right?)
You may know I have a gazillion issues and anxiety is one of them. Well, I met Sharron very randomly at the Edinburgh fringe festival a few years back and went to her show and it was knock out. I went back the next year, on my own. On the bus and everything. Because, when she sings, she sings how I want to sing. she makes a noise that makes you happy.
I sat in the venue and I had no problems. for the hour of that show, I was transported. It was honestly amazing. If someone else can experience anything close to that escape, I’m an advocate!!!

Now, I haven’t know her forever, or am a close personal associate or anything, but I bought her album and it rocks. She rocks. She’s truly a nice person. (Nice how I like nice.. is down to earth and honest and swears a good amount)  and you don’t get that much these days. And she is talented.
And wants to share that with people.

So I’m sharing this with you. I would very much like it if you are able to help, but if not, can you reblog/retweet, whatever and spread the word round a bit. I’d appreciate that.

Oh, I am her self appointed official European stalker (because every super star needs one, OK), but due to the fact I have issues and really can’t fly, to stalk her properly, I would need her to visit me. ironic much????!!!…. Hahaha.



Me and Sharron last time she did the Fringe.


Just catching up..

Hello all, It has been a while since I have written.

Lots going on at the moment.

Got made redundant for about ten hours and then got hired on by the department I was originally hired by, been doing all that work during my time at facilities anyway, so continuity there.  Bit bonkers in all honesty.

In brighter news, I am currently obsessed by pom poms.  Literally obsessed.  They get made and multiply without me being aware of doing them.

I need to buy wool now… wool by the sheep load!  I have a project  on the go which I want to finish ASAP.

We have recently cleared out the garage…step one to getting his man cave up and running.  The nicest thing about my current work situation is that we are looking at getting a lot of things free from the old building.  I have secured for him: sofas, gaming tables, shelving, cupboards, white board, nick nacks of all sorts.  It almost becomes a man cave after one van load of gubbins.

We have insulation to attach to the ceiling, and I am going to learn how to plaster so I can cover the wall that has pebble dash on  it.  Few more things (like finding an electrician to rewire the garage) and it will be a little place almost fit for him to move into he he he.

So that will be him happy.


I am busy. I am also feeling better than I have in months.  Seriously, my last flare shook me up substantially.  I now use a walking stick which is taking the strain out of my pelvis.. you would not believe what a difference it makes!  Also, doc has me on new tablets which seem to be working.

I have gone caffeine free (mostly) during all of this and so far have not killed anyone.  I think I have done that very well.

I have put my first successful post on Freecycle..getting rid of some craft stuff I just can’t use.  Wow.. when you get a post that is exciting, you have to fend off people left right and centre!  Never felt so popular! 

Anyway…I am now sitting at my new home desk area (not quite finished..need things from the office when we “move”) and it is great.

New start coming.

Feel the happy almost daring to show!!
