Thank you so much for the wonderful messages - I'm still on a high after the weekend.
Hopefully, though, I can get some sleep now - 1a.m. Thursday, 2a.m. Friday, 3a.m. Saturday, and 2.45 a.m. Sunday is no good for my age! And I can't imagine who'd finished off the 2 bottles of Jamieson's which I found in the bin this morning! Maureen and Joe, and Dave and Ann Howden came back to my flat after the wonderful Survivors Session, so I blame them! Did you hear us singing Miner's Life?
I still can't believe it took 4 hours to let everyone do 1 song in the final session - I found it all really emotional.
So many highs over the weekend - far too numerous to mention. But I loved my MCing spots - some superb artists. And of course, seeing everyone again. Dave and Ann Howden say that my face lights up when I see people - but is it surprising when there are so many lovely people coming to Saddleworth? Thanks all of you.
