Hello! Ring dem bells! Our new DVD is finally available!
Christmas approaches, so a big Christmassy hello from moi. Quick newsround – Adèle is well and quite back to her old self. Clear of the bloody 'Big C' 15 months now! She’s having another little op to correct some discomfort, but they're making her wait for it (grrr) so the likelihood is that we will be back in about a year from now. Liza and I are still trucking around in solo capacity and having a grand old time but we miss the group and can't wait to get back to it.
My calendar has been whizzing out to all and sundry but we do have a few copies left. I've had a few queries about the format as some people have found it a bit confusing – yes, it's in a jewel case like a CD, but no, it's absolutely NOT a CD-ROM. It opens out so it can stand on your desk, there's a page for every month and a recipe on the back of all the pages (see picture). And that means you can keep the recipes you like the look of! Oh, it’s like the old days when you got a magazine with a Cut-Out & Keep Eezi Recipe of the Month! And no, there are no nude pictures of me. I like shocking my audiences, but not THAT way.
Meanwhile, I will have more news very shortly about my own DVD which I'm about to make – I'm doing my solo show with a small band, the Hot Piccalilli Players. Fabulous musicians, and utterly sublime arrangements by the astoundingly talented Michael Roulston. Michael and I have had an amazing year working together – it feels much longer, and I've just loved our collaboration. But more of that anon.
Meanwhile, have fun gearing up for Christmas. Hope we've given you some good ideas for Christmas presents!!!
And have a fabulous Christmas! with love and good cheer from me, Dillie. And just in case you know someone who's being a mean ol' Christmas Grinch, don't forget this little ditty … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56R0TCJXfzQ
