31st of May Blog update

BusybloggerI’m starting to feel like I am in need of some serious dose of vitamin D. Summer is definitely well behind the schedule here in Dublin, and I for one am in serious need of some warm sunshine 😀 But we struggle along, coffee helps.

I don’t know really what else to tell you about this week. It’s been a busy one, bit like the past year and a bit. But I feel it’s time to get my focus… bit more focused again. Three sessions, three Sliotar shows, recording, writing and keeping my blog busy certainly does keep me out of trouble 😉 So let’s get straight in to this weeks posts.
