May this season kiss you with all the snuggly goodness that Winter brings...
Winter is here...and its my new favourite season because its the month that I have my first 2 full band gigs with my new band 'Mish Songsmith Band'! WOOO HOO! I'm hoping to come up with a better band name, if you have any idea's let me know. My first band was called "Mishful Thinking" and I do like that. Also I have had suggestions; "Mishelicious" and Mishfits...
Mish Songsmith Band debut is: Sunday 9th June from 10am-2.30pm at The Big Top at The Channon Craft Market!
