“All Quiet On The Western Front”

Well, having survived one or two wee health scares this year I’m glad I have the time to be ill.
Things are not so pressing when you don’t have to worry about working it’s not all as stressful as it used to be.

I’m happy to be playing this Hogmanay at The Courthouse Restaurant in Kinross.
Having a gig within walking distance of home is something I’ve been angling for since time immoral. It should be a fun night. The Courthouse has a great rep for it’s food and I’m hoping to see some kent faces to bring in the new year.

January brings the usual flurry of Burns celebrations in various forms from formal dinners to ceilidhs. Maybe I’ll see some of you.

After that back to usual lethargy…….or possibly not?
