I've spent today in Burgess Hill, working at the Park View Health Centre. It's aptly named, because my room looks out onto the car park. It's the first time I've ever been there, and having seen how many charity shops they have in the town centre, I'm hoping it won't be the last. In addition to building a high street according to my needs, I was also welcomed to the health centre by two receptionists who showed me the water cooler, the fire exit and the staff kitchen, before telling me to “help yourself to tea, coffee and anything you want”. So I made off with the microwave and a couple of plates.

I'm actually on tour this week, playing gigs in Crawley, Burgess Hill, Crowborough, Brighton and Mile Oak, after which I'll be taking it easy by driving up to Sheffield on Saturday. But the good news is, in addition to making sweet music with a fundus camera, I now have documentary evidence of my ability to dance...

That's me and Lisa on the official DVD of the Brighton Goes Gospel concert last December. The fact that a middle-aged woman in glasses is showing a better sense of rhythm than I am is no reflection on my ability to get funky. She's probably a trained dancer. And clapping your hands in time to the music is a lot harder than it looks. Just ask Lisa.

But if you're thinking that clip is the highlight of the DVD, you'd be wrong. Keep your eye on the left side of the screen...

That's Lisa putting the 'goes' back into Brighton Goes Gospel. Talk about a tough audience.
