Subject: RE: Whitby Folk Week 2008
Hello Ray

I'm doing fine thank you. Had an operation on my left eye earlier this year, so been in the wars slightly but recovering. Had my stitches out earlier this month and my surgeon has allowed me to sing again now. It was so frustrating not being allowed to sing...

I'm looking forward to Whitby. I know most of the storytellers and am looking forward to working with them. It's great seeing old friends again.

I've been booked as a storyteller for Whitby and have plenty of wonderful stories ready for the week and still have time to add a few more to my repertoire. Am in the process of working on a few songs so can add a song or two to my programme where the venue is appropriate, such as the Family Club maybe. Depends on which venues the organisers place me in. I was at the Globe Folk Club in Guisborough last night. They loved my story - it went down a storm. A lovely singaround evening, very mellow.

I'll be doing a spot of storytelling in Saltburn for the festival, in the library, for the youngsters. I look forward to that. Probably means I won't get to the singing competition but hopefully will see you at the festival anyway. Also in Whitby! I'll be at the folk festival in Nature's World, Middlesbrough as well, giving a workshop on storytelling. Hoping someone turns up for it!!
