The antibiotics I was given have done nothing for my stomach. I was up most of the night again with a bad stomach. At 4.30, I gave up and decided as it will be another warm day, Ellie and I should walk early. I did exactly the same in Cyprus. It is nice that time of day, so peaceful and just the occasional  dog walkers strolling around.

In the evening we went to the Marlowe to see Jools Holland. I really could go and see his show every week. I realised last night it is because they are all smiling on stage, involve the audience (I guess it did help being two rows from the front!) and also the camaraderie on stage is so obvious . Jools has an eye  for spotting talent and as he always does, introduced us to two guitarist/singers who were so good Toby Lee particularly.  Then he has additional established guests. Last night as always, Ruby Turner, Louise Marshall, Sumudu Jayatilaka  and then Imelda May…what a voice she has.

Just a taster (not mine!)

I have to say every time we go to one of his shows, we don’t want to leave and are all up and dancing ! A truly great night.
