Hi all. Haven't done a blog for a long time now. I've been away doing voluntary work. Alas, i missed my life as a DJ and I had to come back. So I'm well and truly back in business. Good news is, my diary is wide open so if you have any doubts about availability I shouldn't worry. Already done a couple of gigs and it feels mighty good I can tell you. Just sorting out a place to live right now and it can't come soon enough. I don't mind living in a B&B but it get's a bit costly after a while.
Where I was working I was doing close to 100 hours per week. That sounds like a lot, but it's actually quite do-able. Only trouble is, you don't really have a life outside of it and it was that plus deejaying that I missed.
Being back in what we would all call ordinary life is so much more appreciated now I can tell you..
On the upside, I lost over a stone in weight and though I didn't really consider myself a fatty, for the first time in my life, my stomach is flat! All i have to do is get into my new place and give up eating bread. Kind of difficult to do when you're living on full english and then whatever you can buy at the garage for the rest of the day.... Last week I played at a hotel as I am tonight and I must have looked weird as i was wearing my old smart clothes which were roughly two sizes too big. Doesn't inspire great confidence in one's self looking like a tortoise peering out of it's shell! Never mind, have smaller trousers now so the "pair of flour sacks/refugee" look has gone.
I've noticed that most TV is appauling. Did i mention I haven't seen any for around 4 months? Some great documentaries of course as always, but reality TV still has all the appeal of a cheese greater on one's privates. No change there then.
I Was Sleeping in a dormatory for all that time, so it's great to have a bedroom again. You get used to other peoples snoring (and farting) but never the less it's good to be able to spread out a bit and breath cleaner air.
Aah well, shoes to polish, food to eat so better get on.
Back soon and have a great Christmas and new year!
