Early morning birthday cake

Early morning birthday cake
 

Well summer is here and who needs a BBQ when a memorable Singagram will linger long after the potato salad has gone. As you may or may not beware your favourite Singagram is available any time of day or night! Today was an early performance for me. 7:30 am at a house in East Finchley! My earliest booking was a 6am singing for a group of girls about to fly to Dublin for a hen weekend at Stansted airport. My sailor outfit caused quite a stir at the Easy Jet check in area!

About a week ago I received an email from a gentleman who was out of the country on business and therefore missing his wife, Brie’s 30th birthday. He asked me to deliver a big bunch of flowers and sing “Woman” by John Lennon. A slightly bleary eyed Brie opened the door and I explained who I was and why I was dressed in a smart tux at that early hour. Mark had told her to expect a “special delivery” at that time. Brie invited me in and after presenting her with her flowers, reading a very sweet poem from her husband I sang my song. Her mum was there and her dad was in the shower. He was quite bemused to see me as he came out of the bathroom!

Birthday Singagram - early morning in a tuxHalf-way through the second chorus Brie suddenly jumped up and went to check her birthday cake which was baking in the oven!! Ever the professional and cake enthusiast I followed! We both inspected the cake (it looked amazing) and returned to the lounge to finish my song! I actually really enjoy the unexpected interuptions and this was my first ‘cake in the oven’ situation. Despite the fact that her dad was sitting in a towel with damp hair and her mum seemed intent on hiding behind the bouquet of flowers it was a successful performance.

The ecoustics were great and we all sang “Happy Birthday” with gusto. With kisses, hand shakes and pleasantries about the weather I exited stage right, although I was tempted to linger on the off chance I might get some cake! Yet, as a busy Singagram it was home for a light breakfast and to prepare for my next performance. Until next time dearest Singagram devotees: keep singing!
