Well here’s a rare moment ! The original line-up of a young hopeful group called QUEEN ! Roger Taylor, Mike Grose, Brian May and Freddie Bulsara. Mike was a bass player from Cornwall with a very big sound, but things didn’t work out with him and we went in a search for a bass guitarist who shared our dreams. Guess who we found !!! Thanks to @39shadesofclogs for finding this - I don’t think I had this snap. 💥💥💥💥Yes ! A young Bri with straightened hair - just like in the film !!! 💥💥💥💥 I think this was taken at our very first rehearsal in a lecture theatre in Mech Eng that I booked - at Imperial College. Bri

Here’s the single - from 1989 ... Bri

A great catch-up with a dear friend. Know who she is ? She’s Belinda Gillet - who, as a child in 1989, won a competition to sing “Who Wants To Live Forever” along with a lad called Ian Meeson. You can still see the video we made on the Queen youtube channel. I had a broken arm in plaster - but we recorded the single for the British Bone Marrow Donor Association - looking for blood tissue type matches to save children with Leukaemia. Seems like another lifetime. 💥💥💥💥 Belinda has been a very successful Mum since then, but also became a damn good musician. She’s spent many a long year gigging up and down the country and quietly recording. She turned down at least one great recording deal along the way. And she’s also a fab teacher! At this moment she is plunging back into her singing career. Watch out !! Check her out - @belindagillettmusic Bri

Hi folks ! I hope it feels good to be alive out there - in spite of what might be bugging you right now. Bri

Thanks folks !! I’m in good shape - my procedure - a GASTROCNEMIUS RELEASE - seems to have hit the spot. All credit to my amazing surgeon Mr Sinnett ! As you can see, my dancing is now back to ‘normal’ !!! Ha ha ! Yes - I’m a little tender around the calf, where the incision was made - but the principle of relieving the irritation on my Achilles Tendon by allowing this calf muscle to extend seems to be a very effective solution. Very clever. !! And so far ? Recommended !! I’ll keep you posted !! I’m HEELED !! Bri

And our hot news !!! A new LITE OWL in the planning stages. More rugged ! More colourful ! More adaptable ! And with a new twist ! Thanks for asking about my leg. I’m good today - a little sore but hobbling my way around quite successfully - business as normal (more or less!) The procedure I had is called a GASTROCNEMIUS RELEASE - and it really seems to have worked already to take away my Achilles’ tendon pain - which had been bothering me for about a year. So, for anyone out there suffering from this problem - I’ll keep you posted, but so far I would recommend this very creative procedure — Bri

Christmas present thoughts ! Here I am Unboxing a Box ! I’m at my favourite injection moulding company - Weston’s in Sunbury-on-Thames - those great people who created the OWL stereoscope with me in 2009. They have a new BOX product which is taking the arts and crafts industry by storm - but which I’m sure will soon be standard gear for anyone on the road - a set of two polypropylene containers which fit together into a kind of suitcase - brilliant !! 100 per cent recyclable (as is my OWL, of course !) and incredibly useful for tidying up small bits and pieces ! It’s called an A4-2-GO ! Info obtainable direct from Weston’s - @weston_boxes Go ! Bri
