Hope you are all well and enjoying life. I am currently at home here in beautiful Celebration, watching the late late show with James Cordon and listening to my incredibly talented daughter Ellie singing her heart out! She is learning a couple of new Disney songs for her upcoming school talent show and we are being treated to the full performance, complete with all the actions, night after night. Love it!!
We have been living here in Florida for sixteen months now and it’s frightening how quick that time has come and gone. We genuinely love living here and Louis and Ellie are really thriving too. They are doing well in school and have loads of extra curricular activities such as tennis, soccer, dancing , piano lessons, singing lessons and musical theatre. Ellie has a two day soccer (football!!) tournament tomorrow in Winterhaven and is the only girl in the 10 and under traveling team!
Louis and I do a lot of fishing too in many of the beautiful lakes here in Celebration and I play tennis almost every day and have become good friends with a lot of great people here….mostly through tennis and sport.
Work is going very well and I’m busy with my cruise work with Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, Cunard and Norwegian. Over the last couple of years I have enjoyed working on and updating my show and this has been very successful for me. I’m also delighted to tell you that Disney Cruise Line has booked me this year on some of their fabulous ships so I’ve been working very hard on new material for this new and exciting adventure.
I will be coming back to the UK in the summer again this year for European cruise contracts so it will be great to see and catch up with all my family and friends again. We had a wonderful time at the Houses of Parliament last summer thanks to our friend and MP Mark Menzies….that was a special day and reminded us of how wonderful Great Britain really is.
Back in USA at Christmas we had a full house. My Dad was here along with Emma’s parents, sister in law and two nephews. We also had two friends and their two kids (one a tiny baby) on holiday in Orlando too. Was the biggest Christmas dinner ever!!
I recently spent a week in fabulous Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood with some of my Brother Water Rats. We were guests of Brother Water Rats Robert Earle jr. and senior. Robert jr. was the founder of Planet Hollywood and we actually had a lodge meeting in their 51st floor penthouse suite over looking the strip which was amazing. Following lodge we had ‘bait’ at the equally amazing strips steak house. Emma and I also caught up recently with Robert jr. at Planet Hollywood here at Disney Springs….what a fabulous place!
I’m doing a few gigs in Miami and Ft Lauderdale next month which I’m very much looking forward to and I hope these will lead to more gigs out here.
In the winter I’m seeing more of Emma and the kids here than when I was living in the UK which is always a good thing. We’re all happy here so we’re just enjoying every minute and for now, living the dream! G x
