Hi there, I'm Ali and brand new to this blogging thingy so not sure how things work. I decided to start a blog because a very good friend of mine kept saying I should have one, told me it's easy, so here goes.

I have decided to call it Blossom and Grow because over the last few years that's exactly how I feel my life has been. Maybe i'm a late developer. You're never too old to try new
things and life definitely starts at 40 something.

Well what an eventful night I had last night took BEST MATE T to the Liverpool Philamonic to see John Barrowman. Felt like I was goin home as thats where we do our SING LIVE concerts. The Show was fantastic John was brilliant and so funny. He had a load of family photos on a screen pity I was right at the back and needed my youngests binoculars but his voice was outstanding and I was memorised. He had Jodie P as support she has an amazing voice and a very cute yorkie who kissed my cheek ahh!

Well we got a huge thrill as T had realised that the guy in the band was the same hunk that shook his buttie infront of us at the Royal Albert Hall last May. There was 600 of us singing in SING LIVE with loads of  west end stars like Kerry Ellis from wicked and now shes Nancy in Oliver which is so weird as Jodie use to play Nancy. Anyway we hunted the cute guy down after the show and yes it was him he said that we had done a GREAT JOB so T and I were chuffed to bits his name was Daniel Ellis   no relation.

Oh other great news we have been invited to re do our Queen song in Albert Hall Bolton which is an honour its a rememberance concert invited by DAWSONS ACADEMY which were part of our DSB experience. I think I might challange self to perform at all the Albert Halls in the country not sure how many there are but that will be fun. No more name dropping well maybe one more.

Bessy Mate M went to do sainsbury advert with very talented daughter I who is on TV at present in Harveys advert and she came across JAMIE OLIVER and to my dismay he was a right DIVA. Flew in on a helicopter straight in car to his van and didnt come out to sign books as thinks hes to important then made crew wait hours before they started filming. I was disappointed to hear this as he is a favourite chef of mine and expected better from him. Kids disappointed I'm disappointed.

Best get back to my crafting as doing a craft fair on the 28th of November at Hulme Hall Wirral so need to get stuck in. Oh want a laugh Mum got me a carosel to display cards very kind newsagent my MS does have its benifits sometimes but gutted when the B***** Cards don't fit into the slots AHHHH!!!!
