Long time-ish no see!

So here I am...sitting on the sofa with the lovely Violet Kirby (yeah, my cat :P) and wondering where to begin with this blog! But I guess that was the beginning. Phew! Glad that's over with. Lol.

I hope you had a brilliant Christmas and New Year! I had a lovely, relaxing time with my family before making the trip back to University. Since I got back to Uni it has been all systems go...I've been doing coursework and preparing for an exam we had. Ooh...I can post the coursework pieces here...they're instrumentals, and a little different, but I had fun writing them...and they still come from the same place that my songs do...

Number 1...Sky Cycle

Please do let me know what you think! I'm still learning to write instrumental pieces, and any feedback is extremely, ever so, more than welcome. ;)

I also wrote this song. :) For a particular man who makes me very happy. No, it's not Alan Rickman. :P

One might even go so far as to say that, I am in love....would you believe it? :P

It dawned on me the other day that I'm actually halfway through my time at Uni now! Geeeez. :-S Bit scary...however...I feel I have learnt so much there already. About life more than anything. (Though I have learnt some very useful stuff about music too! :P) And being able to live on my own...well I have housemates......but with myself, if you know what I mean. :) When you're completely dependant, you can only be a limited version of yourself...I don't mean that in a negative way...it's just that discovering things yourself is so important, and even though I kind of knew that before, I didn't fully realise it until I had to do it!

Oooh...I got a bit of very exciting news the other day! I'm supporting Joan Armatrading at the Yeovil Octagon in June! SO excited. :D I will leave you with this video...a great performance of her song 'Love and Affection' on Jools Holland's show...



I'm very excited about this...a little nervous. :P But sometimes the most nervousy gigs turn out to be the ones that leave me buzzing for days. :)

I'd better go to bed now...but I will be back soon...I'm sorry that I haven't blogged in a while. I will try my hardest to make the posts more regular...I also hope to post another video to YouTube soon, but at the moment I'm recovering from a horrible sore throat/cold combo. I'll get thinking during this time.

Night night peoples! :) And I hope you are all well. :)
