I had fun performing live flute for Heather Small in Big Brother last week. I think possibly I over played but it’s too late now! The reason my post is named ‘Getting Old’ is I remember being very interested in BB in the early 2000’s when it first came out as a programme. It was kind of a social experiment. Now in 2017 I have to admit I have no interest in it. Added to this the fact that the people on the programme are meant to be celebs and yet I didn’t recognise anyone! It can only be a sign that I am getting old!
I’ve just returned from a short trip to play in LA at the Microsft Theatre with ABC. It was a confusing trip because one minute I’m in cold Britain, the next thing I know I’m in warm sunshine and 3 days later I’m back in the cold again. It’s interesting how much it makes you realise how much our bodies need vitamin D i.e the sun. Also to be honest at the moment America feels strange. Nearly everyone I met on the west coast did not vote for Trump and are therefore very unhappy with the electoral outcome. There were protests at the airport as we flew out rightly so.
