from sa to wa…to sweet fa

Well the South Australia tour is done and dusted
Man, we had some fun
Great crowds, beautiful venues
And lots of SA sunshine

Bellies, new friends and the odd giant thrown in for good measure

Lots of catch ups with old mates we don’t get to see nearly enough

I’m hoping to get back to Adelaide for a solo show in June….stay tuned!

Back in WA now gearing up for 3 big shows this weekend
Geraldton, Mandurah & Perth
Details on the TOUR DATES page

I’m trying to squeeze some writing in too
The Christmas Album WILL happen this year.
There, I said it
(that means I have to do it now, yeah?)
But it’s hard to be inside writing, when it’s so nice being outside not writing
Maybe I’ll just take my guitar and songbook down to the beach…
And do my procrastinating there

First night of the tour….WHYALLA!IMG_1531

So fun!
Reminds me why I love coming to South Australia
People are very cool here
And some are even shorter than me….hi Amanda!
Huzzah motherfuckers!

Second day of the tour and THIRD stop at McDonalds
Because Dad is the McMuffin man and doesn’t care about my cholesterol
And Obviously neither do I because I could say no
The Whyalla MacDonald’s crew
Who were all in uniform, hence the thumbs and not middle fingers sticking upIMG_1826
This is Sarah, we ran into her at McDonalds. She was there to pick up her Dad (who works there)
They were then going to the hospital to see her husband
Who happened to be in the front row at the show the night before
AND who was my target / pet / slinky
He had so much fun (and possibly seventy-hundred beers) that he ended up in hospital

The tour hadn’t gotten off to the best start
Fuck, fuck, fuck.
Filter covers were invented for people like me who excel at breaking shit
So the lens itself is fine
And then Mum got all she-woman adjusting the rear vision mirror
And ripped the fucker off
They say things come in threes
Will keep you posted on what gets broken next

A normal tour usually has 18-21 shows
This SA run has five
We’re seeing if we can squeeze 4 weeks worth of touring crazy nutso adventure fun into one
We’re doing pretty good so far.

it’s beginning to look a lot like…..wait, not yet.

I don’t really have a favourite season
But I do know what it isn’t

And that’d be fall
The time of year where it get’s cooler
But not cold enough to wear big puffy coats and gloves and scarves, which I love
It’s more ‘in between’
My clothes and I can’t make a decision and we start off most mornings arguing and confused
Then all the leaves fall off everything, everywhere and now it looks dead
Good times

I am the only one in this house that doesn’t love this time of year
Diamond and the girls are ALL about fall
Mainly because of Halloween, which is totally fall’s saving grace
Halloween I do like

I like the pumpkin carving (in a supervisor’s capacity of course, otherwise ugh….pumpkin guts is grody)
I like going to the pumpkin patch
Halloween parties are always fun
And who can beat brawling with the neighbours?

Even though I’m more of a Christmas kid, I’m trying to get my giddyup going, as Diamond brings all the Halloween decorations up from the basement today
The bag of Halloween candy that I demolished for breakfast is my fuel

For someone that doesn’t ‘like’ American chocolate
I do a mean impersonation of someone that loves the shit out of itphoto_1
It’s the polite thing to do
And I am nothing if not fucking polite
