Name dropping and Pond
Went to a concert of 80s music at Audley End at the weekend. All performers were great...Particularly Jimmy Somerville who is in great voice and shape. It's hard to believe that Jimmy sang on my track Luna about fifteen years ago at RAK studios with Stephen Hague producing vocals...Great stuff!!!
While I'm name dropping, I was really pleased to see Laura Aikman starring alongside Leigh Francis in Lemon La Vida Loca. Laura plays Keith Lemon's girlfriend, Rosie Parker and was in Signs Of Life, a BBC production which I wrote the music for...It's online here...Signs Of Life
I'm working on a new show for ITV1/Love Productions which is an interesting mix of orchestral and 50s music!!! More news soon.
We're planning the works due to take place soon at Tumbledown which will involve some earthworks and building. These can now be done as we have the new piece of land. We're just sorting out various quotes and dates and hope to fix a start date soon.
There's some moorhen confusion...A new family seem to have moved onto the pond, so we now have four adults and four chicks and it's impossible to tell who's who!!! The Ducks disappeared for a few days but, to our relief, returned safe and sound!!! The pond level has dropped a little despite some heavy downpours...We're hoping to find the normal range of levels so we can plant the right plants in the right place around the edges...A few things we put in were submerged during 'high tide'!!!
