Well, the day arrived at last, Sunday 30th November 2014 ! Such excitement as I thought ‘Am I going to be on ?’ Wow to be on a programme with Donny, felt like a dream. But yes it was all real ! The programme started, I was so excited but thoughts of anticipation running through me, will they, won’t they! Lots of great footage was shown from the early days of the Osmonds, visiting the UK & Heathrow incident with the wall collapsing due to so many fans waiting for their arrival ! Donny spoke about his life, his faith, it was a honest, loving interview (had a little cry !) also appearing was Marie, Roger Holt – Record Producer, David Hughes – Press Officer, Tony Prince – DJ and of course Maureen – Fan Club Manager/Secretary, all giving great stories from way back, all so interesting to listen to. Then around 29 mins+ I was on, so hard to see yourself on TV ! Do I really sound like that, hehe! I appeared a few more times, the funniest clip was about ‘7UP’ cans & how I used to collect them & put them on my bedroom window sill after drinking them of course, oh dear !! Had to do it way back then, the Osmonds drank it !!! It was a fantastic experience, would I do it again, a BIG YES as any opportunity to talk about Donny & my experiences is always the best time ever, ‘as he makes me go all funny !!‘ xx Watch Donny’s Interview with Fern and ENJOY!

I read my twitter page on the morning of August 6th & read Nathan’s tweet, he was in the UK and visiting London TODAY ! Well that was worth a trip to London, so suggested to my daughter Abbie if she fancied a shopping trip, oh and to include a meet with Nathan & Sarah X That was a yes to the shopping & come along to Westminster Abbey to keep me company and meet them. After the shops made our way to the Abbey and sat and waited & then they arrived having a Tour Guide show them around, good idea. But having travelled early that morning attending the ‘Hearing Fund UK Gala’ in Leeds, they were tired with all the Tour walking ! Abbie & I had a lovely time with Nathan & Sarah, a lovely couple. We talked for a long time and had photos taken, all very exciting.
Same to you Nathan 👍
Thank you Nathan & Sarah for making this fan very happy, hope to meet again soon…. X

Donny here sooon 🎶🎼🆒 xx
Today’s the DAY ! 🎵 xx
BIC BOURNEMOUTH taken from Pier 🎶
Well…. it’s the morning after a FANTASTIC Show with the ONE & ONLY DONNY 💋💜, he’s amazing, brilliant, very entertaining as so many fans know 💋 it was a packed BIC BOURNEMOUTH (on the South Coast) last night. On the morning of the Concert I drove to Bournemouth (only hour away) & was to meet my friend Hilde who I haven’t seen for 35 years from Norway to watch the show. Hilde was out shopping so I walked along the Beach & Pier as the weather had brightened up, actually I wondered if Donny had arrived yet so passed the BIC just incase ! No luck ! Walked back to hotel after I heard from Hilde, lovely seeing her, went for lunch & wondered around shops, on way back passed through the BIC for coffee & yes Donny was in the building, ‘Crazy Horses’ sounding good ! Wanted to sneak in but that was a NO NO ! Time had come to go back to hotel, change & have dinner, we then entered the foyer filled with VERY EXCITED fans ready & waiting for him, ( DONNY STILL DOES IT !), we collected our VIP goody bag, we took our seats, Row C, a fantastic view of the stage, worth paying extra for these seats ! Anytime for him eh….! ( 👎the only frustrating thing on the night were the ‘purple cards’….thought we would ALL get the chance to write on a card but only random cards were given out….VERY disappointing !!!👎 ) Then it was time, OH MY, OH MY, AMAZING, AMAZING, what can you say about Donny performing! ALL NIGHT PLEASE! 💋💜 ( did see instructions to use ‘Concert APP’ but Donny was soooo close I couldn’t take my eyes off him, sorry Donny I didn’t use it ! )
Hilde & I were VERY excited….nearly time !
These following photos show what a fantastic evening it was xxx🎶🎼🎵🆒
Lovely items in Goody Bag, wonder who will ‘doggie walk’ with me now with that hat & scarf !! he he !!
DVD recording just been announced, will be brilliant to see Concert again, & again, & again ! **Recorded Birmingham Concert, the last night of Tour**
Thank you Donny for touring the UK, made us all feel young again ! Hopefully see you again VERY soon 🎶🎼🎵xxxx (I’m writing this blog during early hours after Concert, cannot sleep, see what you do Donny !!)
ONE LAST & STRANGE THOUGHT….. my ‘Facebook Memory’ on this Exact same Date 4 years ago at same Place was this:-
NOW that’s another BLOG, maybe have a look…. 🎶🎼🎵xx
ANNOUNCEMENT MADE: Friday JULY 14th DVD release…yes ! Hopefully Donny will be over to UK to promote DVD, not sure if that will happen ?

Goodnight everybody xx

Well yet again Donny has been sooo busy this week, he doesn’t stop ! The week started with Twitter & he was on his way to promote his new CD ‘The Soundtrack of My Life’ released on the Monday he was arriving.
Monday 10th November was a busy day, the pre-recorded ‘Alan Titchmarsh Show’ I watched was to be shown today on ITV, Donny gave an interview & sang new single ‘Could She Be Mine’ (see my other blogs for photos), Donny was off to HMV Manchester for CD signing around 530pm.
Thank you HMV for permission to use photo X

Friday was also ‘Children In Need’ on BBC, to raise money to help change the lives of disabled children & young people in the UK (total raised at this time over £32million, WOW), Donny appeared in the ‘Queen Vic’ pub ( this is a fictional pub in a TV show called ‘Eastenders’ shown each evening on BBC ! ) and then came the beautiful song ‘Don’t Give Up’ singing with Laura Wright, it was amazing guys, have a look on YouTube everyone x
Saturday 15th November was an early start to appear on ‘Saturday Kitchen Live’, where guests talk about their career, helping & watching James Martin & guest chefs cooking meals and callers to Show picking ‘food heaven’ or ‘food hell’ to be cooked later.
It was a brilliant, funny & relaxed show.
At this time I’m waiting to watch ‘The National Lottery’ tonight with Gaby Roslin who is also very excited ! Donny will be singing his new single & pressing the ‘button’ for those winning balls to be released & I’m going to win !!! I want to be able to thank Donny personally for my win ! (I wish, but you never know!)
On Tuesday 18th November 9am Donny will be on QVC UK talking about his CD (pre-recorded). Brilliant Jackie x Jackie Kabler interview with Donny x
Well that’s a lot in a week Donny & I know I haven’t covered everything but this is a taster of the week, Thank you so much Donny for coming here again, we all have an amazing time when you’re here, I’m just glad you do not live here, it would be impossible to function !!
Happy 50th Year in the business Donny, look forward to seeing you here again soon ! TOUR TIME ?!!
Goodnight Everybody ! Enjoy reading xxx www.tinamckenzie.blog

I would like to start this blog by thanking Marie for giving her fans her time to answer questions sent through to her via Flamingo’s facebook page, she’s a very busy lady xx
Tuesday 2nd September 2014 10.30PM UK Time, was the day & as hundreds of questions flooded in, I’m not sure how Marie coped with them but it was a very busy facebook page ! At one moment I did wonder where were the replies but then I started seeing them coming through & yes I got a reply too, well chuffed ! 💋
Another FUN time had by all, the Family keep us smiling with everything they do xx💋
Goodnight everybody ! 💋
Check out @marieosmond’s Tweet:
Thanks Marie for my tweet this morning, it makes my day ! I LOVE TWITTER so much ! 💋x
Well spot Donny if you can, he’s been so busy here in UK this week & been to Prague too ! I had the week off for a change but didn’t stand a chance of finding him !! 👎 But last night a tweet was sent through that he was on a Prague flight to Gatwick & then a photo appeared on Twitter when landed by a lucky fan ! So today, Saturday May 31st, not sure where you are Donny, I’m sure tweets will come through sometime! You’ve been good at hiding (I know you were working hard!) & only couple tweets but to be fair you’ve been sooo busy ! Looking forward to #60thalbum, see you soon for a TOUR ?! 💋🎶🎤🎼🎹 Update: Donny is in London at the moment but going home today ! 😘😂xx
I’m writing this blog to help spread the word just incase you haven’t heard that Donny has launched his own APP and it’s FREE ! 🎤 He’s releasing his 60th Album in his 50th year in show business, WOW, November 10th called ‘The Soundtrack of My Life’, the App involves personal stories behind the reason for each song and small song samples being released on different dates.🎶 It’s a brilliant idea & I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to the ‘teasers’ ! My favourites at the moment are ‘My Cherie Amour’, ‘The Long & Winding Road’, ‘I Who have Nothing’ but of course I love them all but there’s something about Donny singing those songs ! 💕💗 I tweeted Donny & got a lovely ‘thank you‘ from him, I am soooo chuffed !😘 :)xx
So download 🎸TODAY and enjoy listening to Donny & ‘The Soundtrack of My Life’ , pre-order CD OR DELUXE EDITION CD to include all songs, on Amazon now, due out 10th NOVEMBER 🎶🎵🎼 & Donny has announced he’s due over that week. 👍🆒

Check out Donny’s tweet reply:
Tonight I was very excited ! Donny was on Twitter at 9pm answering questions ! We were asked to send in beforehand questions inc #DonnyChat & hopefully you’ll get a reply! I had bit of an issue with that, got a bit flustered ! I couldn’t see his answers unless you went on his twitter page ! (As I write this Q&A’s are sorted on Twitter now) YES I got that reply BUT it wasn’t one of my questions !! How weird is that ! So how should I feel, it’s a strange one BUT Donny answered a question & it included me so no complaints ! & after all he answered around 33 questions & to be one of them, WOW ! Thanks Donny for your time 💋🌹🌷xx Looking forward to new CD this year 🌹💋🌷 Goodnight Everybody 🌹
