“Whatever you are, be a good one” (Abraham Lincoln)
I was ready for my performance and I thought it’d be a really good idea to do an introductory LIVE stream on Periscope (new app) today, not expecting any viewers at all, but I had 30. Ultimate fail when I didn’t know how to end the broadcast…
…figured it out eventually haha. Whoops. I promised viewers that I would LIVE stream the show, so I did a pre show LIVE stream too, but before I show you that, here’s a short clip of the show…
The beginning bit you can see me wiggling as my dads attempting to fix my wireless set to my dress…well not long before this moment, I was proving with my dancing skills the reason why I could never become a backing dancer 😀 haha no in all seriousness I love dancing, but unless I’m in dance class or on stage I never take it seriously. I’m always the one doing silly dance moves because I find it hilarious, which exactly what I was doing back stage *grits teeth*
The temperature was much cooler tonight. My fur cape was most definitely needed when off stage. Brrrrrrrr. But the sky was clear blue, it was beautiful.
Before the evening show, I performed in the courtyard at 4pm for an hour again. There is a lovely family that always try to come see me perform, ‘The Cooks’, I saw the lovely couple walking through Aukley on my way to the Yorkshire Wildlife park and hoped I’d be seeing them there. As I was playing violin, I glanced up and saw them both sat on the bench not far from me tapping their feet 🙂 I didn’t get chance to speak to them today/though 😦
I love this dress 😀
When I finished performing there was a HUGE queue of people waiting to have photo’s taken with me and for me to sign autographs. It was so lovely. I met some amazing and lovely people. Also bored one lady to death with probably the most boring fact in the world. She was telling me that she used to play organ when she was younger, and I replied with “So this is probably the most boring fact ever, but there’s a world shortage of organists.” Haha and advised her to start again and get in with weddings as she could “make a right crack.” What is wrong with me?! Haha.
One of my mums colleagues from work came for a cuddle which was so lovely 😀 and my friend Amy’s Auntie & Uncle were there who I used to go Line Dancing with when I was 11 haha, there are NO photos to be included of that memory 😀
I’ll leave you with the Pre-Show LIVE stream from Periscope haha…interesting…
Until next time, take care and shine brightly ❤ xxx ❤
