Last week's show was really funny, I really enjoyed myself. I returned home across London the next day, and felt a bit wiped out. Friday's building work finished at the normal time, and I looked forward to a quite relaxing weekend with my Rene.
Then it began, some argument between some of our neighber's, and a dreadful noise continued throughout the night, I hate conflict's, and I hate noise.
But there was a silver lining to this grey cloud, my alarm awoke me at 3:30am, it was the live qualifying for the F1 Australian GP, I was only partially awake, but loved it, I prefere to watch the live event where possible, a few hour's later the position's for the race had been sorted and I returned to bed.
Saturday, Rene had bought some dining room chair's off of E-bay, and we set out to go and collect them, the address said Kent, but it was much more like South London, I'd thought we were going for a drive in the country.
We spent Saturday night watching a film and having pizza. Sunday was race day in Australia, Jenson Button was on pole, and it looked like today was the day for his first victory, but the poor bloke blew up just before the finishing line. It was a superb race, the best so far. There's a break for three week's now until the next GP.
Then after the race, I went to visit my brother Shaun, we had a good afternoon in the garden pruning and clearing, the sun was bright in the sky. Jed is as gorgeous as ever, alway's smiling and giggling, and so big and strong.
Building work continued this morning, but every day I become a little more accustomed to it, I'm looking forward to Indy's guitar lesson this evening, he's doing really well.
I haven't done any music this weekend, so my new song is still a way off being finished, and that's about been my week since the show. Thankyou everyone for your shout's here on my blog, and thankyou to Molly for posting up a link to my fan-map on her blog, thankyou everyone.
I've posted up another drawing from an old song book, I like this one, thank's again for all the great shout's, hope your all good, take care all and obviously GMaS.

Hey Mikey good to hear you're doing ok!
I was wondering if that was the race where the poor guy actually died? There was recent race footage here in the states of a race car crash, they said that the poor guy died. It's the same time frame, so I can't help but wonder!Maybe it was a US race.

I like this pic, I'd swear the rock and roll devil has the face of Mikey, lol. ;)
I was laid up for two weeks now with a
messed up ankle, getting the run around up until this past weekend when I broke a blood vessel in my foot, from all the swelling. Now they are taking it more seriously and are going to do a CT scan. My foot/ankle is doing this stuff for no reason, I didn't injure it in any way. That's what's so frustrating about it! It just decided to swell up like an elephants foot/leg one day, lol. Just my left foot.
Wish me luck it's not something serious! I'm a little worried about a blood clot or something! :( I've had more stupid yet awful health problems in the past year than ever in my whole life!
Sorry for going on about it. It's just
a real problem for me these days.
Hope you and Rene are healthy as usual! xoxoLisa

Hi Mikey,
sounds like a great weekend, except the part about getting up at 3:30. I couldn't sleep well last night because our clocks sprang forward an hour Sunday morning, it was dark when I got up at 5:30 today.

My fingertips are like old pieces of leather today mate. I've been working on a new song. It's based on a cool little fingerpicking riff that I've been messing with for about two years, but never heard a melody for, then Thursday evening I threw a couple of extra chords in, and boom, the melody came out. Funny how it happens ay? It's a little pop song called "She's Mine", actually ripped the title from the Psychedelic Furs" who I've been thinking about recently. The song is about when you get married, some guys feel like they are giving up their freedom, but my experience has been that of being freed, or that Stephani has brought out qualities in me. Anyhow, the fingertips hurt because I am playing it over and over and over so when I do record it this week, it won't take me all night.

Fingers crossed for Rachel and Pete getting song of the year on Wednesday and for another excellent show. Back to work..

Yes, a big shame seeing Jenson's car explode under him!!

I've got a useless fact for you Mikey - if a person lives to 80, they take approx. 20 million breaths during their lifetime!

hey mikey! sounds like you had a pretty good weekend! Saturday night movie and pizza? That sounds like an excellent evening to me!

I feel your pain with the builders. A house is being built from the ground up across the street from me, so every morning I am awoken by the nails of hammers and other loud tools. One early morning I had the joy of hearing Spanish music being blasted out of one of the workers cars. Not cool. But you do get used to it after a while, it's weird.

Hope you have a great week, can't wait to see ya on ITA on Wednesday!

It features a song Gary wrote and many blogger pictures woven together in a nice little fashon.. a bit like the video I posted back in Feb. I sent a copy on DVD in to Rachel and Pete but I dont know if they ever got it...

Dear Mikey

I am not much into F1, but I really quite enjoy NASCAR racing.
Do you have that in the UK, too?

Looking forward to ITA this week again. I'm so glad I'm able to watch it at work.
Otherwise I'd not be able to see it, as usual.

Take care & see you Wednesday!

Talking of builders and the pain of having things done to ones house, we are having out garden re-turfed next week but big problem - the hosepipe ban cam in yesterday. If it doesn't rain relentlessly for a couple of weeks the grass will die - could I sue Thames Water????

Ok this one is pretty self-explanatory! I like this one too!
There's not one I haven't liked, honestly...
Have you thought about a sketch to use on a t-shirt and/or your ep as Pete had suggested?
Can't wait for ITA!
Glad all is well with you and your loved ones.
Take care,
where's the Other one? :)

Hey Mikey - thanks for dropping by on my blog.
Have a great show tomorrow night.


p.s. Think you'd sound great singing a bit of Dylan. Something like 'It Ain't Me Babe'
