100 lengths and counting…

Hello people,

Just got back from the pool. Smashed out 100 lengths (2900 metres) this afternoon. Training for the swim is well and truly under way.  I’m putting everything into this. I really don’t fancy walking down Ryde High Street with my pecker out. That disappointment is for my girlfriend and my girlfriend only.

Am working on new material this week. I know the album is already written but one can never have too many songs. My Mrs is miles and miles away so it’s sounding melancholic. You wouldn’t expect anything less from me I’m sure.

I best get back to it before football training. I have fitness issues it seems. x

 

Dover Park Primary School Fete…

Yellow.

I know I’m not renowned in the 4 to 8 year old musical bracket but that is my audience this Friday.

I am playing the Dover Park School Fete at 2pm. It’s my old primary school and my niece and nephew also go there. It’s always nice to give something back. Especially as I basically caused carnage for my 4 years there.

I’m a big fan of the brick work. I became quite pally with it while I stood facing it for almost every break time.

I’m on at 2pm, it’s totally free and it’s all there to support the school.

Ryde Regatta & Beach Soccer Party…

Alright bum faces!

I’m playing Ryde Regatta tomorrow between 1pm and 2pm. It’s only a chilled out acoustic set but there is beer, and it’s free. Not the beer by the way. Don’t get too excited. You could break a hip.

In the evening I’m playing the IWBSA party down at Appley. I’m on at 7pm.

For a man that “doesn’t really gig on the Isle of Wight”, I’m doing alot of gigging on the Isle of Wight.

It doesn’t count though as I don’t actually enjoy it. 😉

Be safe. x

Swimming the Solent apparently…

Hello all.
I am still going to attempt to swim the Solent in August. I might drown as my training has taken a high board dive. I’ve cracked my ribs so have been out the pool for 3 weeks. Not good.
