This week we have been practising deep breathing and finding our zen on the hard-shoulder of the M11 (when we should have been performing in Colchester), in a recovery vehicle (thanks to the RAC), and during venue power-cuts. Life on the road ain't always plain sailing - and we were pretty close to having a little breakdown of our own at one point.
However, we were rewarded with a beautifully warm audience in Maldon, Essex last night, and a very cute cottage on Mersea Island to rest our heads in - with some lovely beach walks for good measure.
Thankfully, along with the brilliant staff at Essex Libraries we have been able to re-schedule our Colchester Library show for January 29th at 7pm. Anyone who had already booked tickets can get them transferred to the new date. If you hadn't - go and buy them now!
Then we'll be gearing up for some serious driving (and hopefully no encounters with hard-shoulders) as we visit Norfolk, Thurrock, Cambridge, Cumbria, Rugby, Leeds and Bristol over February - here's hoping our van holds out for the rest of the tour!
