Monday 20th February 2017: 1.36pm. Just about to depart for Paris to hopefully close a new work contract. Feeling very rough, barely slept a wink last night but not due to nerves, rather my tonsils have become infected, so I can't breathe! Which is weird as I was only talking to my sister about whether to remove tonsils and adenoids etc when young or not last night when she was giving me a haircut! Anyway I am very sure I'll sleep extremely well in the hotel tonight, and I only need to perform for four hours or so tomorrow before I head home. Here's hoping it pans out and I'll be back into employment soon.
