Well (thats another hole in the ground – sorry) Ok so I won’t keep you too long or ramble on as I sometimes (normally) do…
January is always a huge month what with getting over New Year and those resolutions that mostly don’t get kept hmmm… that’s alright I kept mine simple 😂🥳🤨
Of course after New Years its full steam on working towards the Tamworth Country Music Festival but… in their wisdom because of the Corona Virus Pandemic its been cancelled – say what??? Yes the 49th Festival has been cancelled so lets look forward to next year the 50th Anniversary, yep oughta be huge.
PLEASE NOTE: There are still lots of venues in Tamworth and surrounding areas that have country music, it’s just the Official Tamworth Country Music Festival as such has been cancelled.
Instead of going up to Tamworth I have decided to stay and continue working on my music, although I am mixing a song by Eric Pasmore called ‘How I Lost My Way’, quite a catchy country song.
Now once that’s out of the way and one other then I can work on mine, was thinking of putting out an EP of maybe 4 songs rather than a CD of 14 although I do have all the songs just they need mixing as the instruments are all recorded.
I did however play the raw tracks to my mate Jacks wife Leeane and she loves them even unmixed so that a good sign – thanks Leeanne.
So as you can tell, January gets busy, since the start I’ve also had physio twice, x-rays, ct scans, ultrasound every other day and we’re only halfway through the month. Each time I have one the Doctor rings 2 days later saying hmmm we better follow up with another like WTF really?
And… later this month like nearly 3 weeks in is my mate Watts birthday and of course my long suffering partner Debbie both on the same day – hey we even dress the same going on a cruise; couldn’t miss us or the others either.
Ok so I’ll bring this to a close by saying its Australia Day on the 26th, the mother in laws birthday on the 30th and another mates birthday on the 31st which will be a big COVID safe party – phew then February begins & Valentines Day.
Hopefully the border security changes and I can get back into Victoria to see Mum who’s in a home and my precious daughter B-J, I mean its been 2 years since I’ve seen them both and it hurts; between the accident then the Corona Pandemic its been tough.
People say its been hard as they haven’t seen their loved ones for a few months try 2 years and then when it was almost safe to travel the Aged Care Facilities were put back in lock down again in Victoria which meant if I was able to travel down I still wouldn’t be allowed in to see mum.
Anyway here’s to Australia Day 2021 lets hope its a great one.
Anyway I have rambled on for too long, hey if you see me out on the road say gday or hit me up on UHF Channel 40
Till next time, take care, yours in country music – Leigh
