  • I’m so tired

    I haven’t slept a wink, etc. pace John Lennon. All of a sudden everything is kicking off at work.  But the Mincers had a really good rehearsal last night, I had a testing session at Pilates tonight which helped to stretch my back muscles, courtesy of the wonderful Caroline, and I spent no Earth pounds […]

  • Four hundred

    Played our first ever gig in the Bay Inn last night, I had never actually been upstairs to the function suite before but it was just about right in size, and at least we gave the bar staff something to do.   We raised £400 for charity with ticket sales, raffle and donations,  so thank […]

The girls thrashed the blokes in the quiz, and the audience, if noisy, were most appreciative, which […]
