I am truly sorry I will not be at the Bush Camp this year!
I do apologise to all of you who love to catch up in Tamworth -at the Bush Camp. A good reason however-expecting new little Granddaughter around that time! and want to be here in case! because the years fly by and I don't want to miss a minute! It is unbelievable really- the years are flying past like it is all on fast forward! bit scary. So many old faces are gone- sadly a few younger faces too! I have in fact decided I have no time to lose-I'm gonna go a bit harder this coming year! for 2018 planning to do some touring. South Australia/Victoria -just a few dates in June. Then after Bony Mountain in September- I'm off on a NSW tour! October/November. I am due to go into the studio soon to record a new Celtic song! to be released around Xmas!
Now December & roughly 3 weeks away!
I usually love Xmas it is a time to catch up on our families- our friends-and just chill out & enjoy good company- good food & good wine! I enjoy staying home and it takes some pretty momentous occassion to get me away from home at this time! I always worry about the kids travelling -but quite content not to travel myself! Enjoy getting the Xmas tree up- the Fairy lights- and some special decorations! I hope you all have a wonderful time with your family- But I do think about all of those who have lost someone they love! it will be tough for them! But always remember that the ones who loved you-will want you to remember the happy times- and Xmas is always a good time to reflect on those special family memories!
LOCKED OUT AGAIN? that devil look! he knocks on the door ! poor little George! he loves Xmas!
The Celtic Connection and our family history.
It surely is a strong one! my Mothers family were The Hungerfords, a very influencial family in British History. Much to my surprise ! our illustrious ancestors built a Castle known as (Farleigh Hungerford Castle) back in 1370 .Sir Thomas Hungerford built this medieval Castle & its a long story but they lived there for over 600 years off and on. ! Some of them fought with the Kings at the battle of Argincourt, some of them followed Cromwell & met their demise! Sir Thomas was the very first speaker of the house of commons in the British Parliment! It is a very colourful & well documented history. It is described as the most significant Medieval Castle in England as it is at Somerset ,the actual family crypt contains the marble effigys of the two Original Hungerfords! And I do intend to research it well & put a lot of it into songs & poetry. Another big project! but one I will relish!
