A MESSAGE comes in from Catriona…she and the kids are on their way. That spurs us to get out of bed and get breakfast on the go!

I spend a little time with everyone then hit the studio to start work on production for Monday’s Cookin’ Up The Blues. It takes most of the day.

An email come in telling us that the Manchester/Salford show only just re-scheduled for February has been cancelled! I spend the next hour getting git off all the listings and ticketing websites 🙁

We’ve been invited to Betty and Joe’s for dinner later and there’s just enough time to get out for a walk and some fresh air before we head along.

We have a lovely night and great food…the covid crisis has meant that these kind of get-togethers have been largely off limits, but now – if we’re all careful it’s possible. For the time being, at least.
