Eight hours at a party, surrounded by alcohol, continually offered it, and I failed…
Well, I had ONE drink, after about 6 hours – only because I hadn’t tasted rhubarb gin and tonic before.
The not drinking was easy, it was when everyone started dancing that I made my excuses and left – I miss that more than the drinking.
Thanks to Jane and Simon, to Kate, to Jo and Gary, but most of all to Sophie for inviting me. I blogged about this girl ages ago. She’s 16 and incredibly talented. Looks like I was right then – next Sunday she plays at Glastonbury ( BBC talent stage, BBC red button, on at 3.30 for 45 minutes), and then leaves for record signing deals in LA.. Along with everyone else that knows her, I feel very proud.
Look out for SODY – remember where you heard it first!
