Thanks! It's a pleasure to be in the band.

I'm a wee bit nervous about Sunday though.

Remember the gig on 2nd is cancelled, Emma!

How about a Pocketbooks tour of Nottingham pubs that day instead?

I've edited the gigs post accordingly.

Yes, a Nottingham pub tour sounds tempting, depending on how hungover we all are from Indietracks...

I'm sitting here now and it seems like a good time to plan another pop adventure so I think I'll come to that. Yeah!

You were brilliant. 'Cross the Line' with the guitar bit at the start sounded great. I love you!

Hooray!

I was pleased with how my first gig went, thanks to all that said nice things afterwards.

I was a really fun day. Roll on the next show.

gutted I couldn't make it - I was struck down with a nasty cold/flu type thing which rendered me under the duvet all day sunday.

Glad it went well.
