An Evening Wander

Last week I checked into a hotel on the waterfront for a few nights. On the first night I popped out for a little wander around the Pier Head and took a few snaps.

Sticking A Toe In The Pool Of Etsy

I have been making odd bits of jewellery for a little while now. It was mainly as a distraction, something to do that allowed me to switch off from the day to day stresses and to improve my concentration and dexterity.

Last August I made a batch of items with a Beatles theme and sold them over the International Beatles Week event on stalls at St Peter’s Church Hall (where John and Paul first met) and at the convention at the Adelphi Hotel. They went pretty well. Some stock even sold out.

Recently I set up a store on Etsy.com. Currently I am only shipping within the UK but hopefully that will change very soon. I’m rather pleased with some of the stuff I have designed for the shop and I’ve listed lots of one off items that I have made over the last few months from things I’ve stumbled across.

Helping to get “In The Mood”

25035242709_7ac963edcc_hI had a brilliant evening on Tuesday. I met up with my friend Donna after work and we went out for something to eat and a catch up before heading off to the Liverpool Empire to see The Glenn Miller Story starring the legend that is Tommy Steele.

The show is more a celebration of the music than a truly biographical production but that’s okay. Tommy Steele wowed everyone with his ease and grace as played one of my favourite musical dorks. (I did note that my brass teacher wouldn’t have been impressed with his blowing technique when he wielded the trombone though!)

I found it hard to believe that he is nearly 80 and still has a good few moves that would put some youngsters to shame. It was such an entertaining evening that my cheeks hurt from smiling so much.

Best of all we went on Glenn Miller’s birthday!

Just what I need to battle the cold weather doldrums. 25434399615_aa3f2104f6_k

 

RAWR!

I admit I am only posting this to try out posting from my phone app.

Finally!

After a few false starts and some rather disastrous technical errors, this blog is finally up and running. I’ve still got some tweaking to do (for the third time, but who’s counting) but I think I’ve finally got it all sussed!

I’ve imported a couple of posts from my previous personal blog just to get this one started.

More soon!
