I've not been ignoring you, I've just been having a very good time.
It's 3am, and I'm just in from a family party. (Yes, another one!)
This time it was the celebration of 40 years of wedded bliss for my brother Jimmy and his wife Helen.
A day (and night) long affair in their house, just down the road from my own wee castle.The fling started about 4ish and went on from there. We joined the party about 7pm, that's when it really got going! That's when the singing started!
It's been quite a while since the six brothers and our little sis were all in the same house together. Add some alcohol.....
To say we all like to sing is an understatement, can you just imagine the lot of us fighting for mic time?? But it's my mic, yeah?
No, I was happy to be MC and let the rest of the clan do the singing for a change.
Throw in some very talented nieces & nephews, who needs a band?
The neighbours were fascinated! We're like a very ugly Osmond/Partridge family! (Apart from wee sis, who's just gorgeous!)
But with the voices of angels.
Fuckit though, we amuse ourselves, and it's free.
Much as I love being out with friends, and much as I love being on stage entertaining strangers, there's nothing beats a gathering of the clan.
