Stockholm day 2

Our first show went well last night and the audience were highly enthusiastic - we were reunited with several long time Swedish friends who came along.

It was good to see our Stockholm promoter Ulla Malmsten, who asked after my daughter Poppy, I was able to show her a photo from one of the very first times we came here, she was two years old then (she's 11 now) - how time flies.....

After our first show at the Scala, we were each presented with roses, which Dave thoughtfully placed in a vase to decorate our dressing room. After the second show we were presented with a glass of prosecco (which was a first!) it seemed rude not to down it in one before proceeding to play the encore. We've often had eccentric gifts from our hosts here - I remember one year we all received horsemeat salamis.....

The theatre dressing rooms have lots of props lying around - it wasnt long before the showbiz spirit asserted itself.
