2013 has been a simply splendid year! It kicked off brilliantly with my friend Elly from the Netherlands coming to stay in January, and then together we flew up to Scotland where I met my cousins who I’d not seen for over ten years, and our two friends Hannah and Jenna. Why did we fly to Scotland? To see the Mavericks! We saw them in Glasgow, they were supported by an amazing band called Black Diamond Express. The gig was fabulous… perhaps the best I’ve ever seen but then afterwards we were lucky enough to meet the band in a bar afterwards… a dream come true… really, a dream come true!
