๐ŸŽถTHE OSMONDS with Showband JUMP at THE ANVIL, Basingstoke UK 24 SEPT 2013๐ŸŽถ

Tuesday 24th September 2013

The day had come, I could not believe that The Osmonds were coming to my town Basingstoke, it’s a town in Hampshire, UK on south coast.



There are many words to describe a fantastic evening watching the Osmonds perform on stage but I shall just say WOW, WOW, WOW ! They performed songs from the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s, Stevie Wonder songs & song dedications to Andy Williams.

I had bought 5 tickets for my girlfriends in good seats, Angela, June, Debbie & Helen, nice & close to the stage !

They were very pleased with the seats which was great, close enough to maybe get on stage, only joking!!



First on was musical showband JUMP featuring Emily Penny,

they were great performers and very funny too ! Then we had an interval and back to our seats and time for The Osmonds ! WOW, there I go again but they were fantastic, I couldn’t sit down and danced & sang all night to all the favourites ! I could have stayed all night listening to them if they had offered ! They are & always have been a class act and I hope they are back again soon.

Merrill, Jay & Jimmy, thank you for touring the UK and making many ladies feel young again !! Come back soon xx

💕Donny Osmond Guest Celebrity on ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’

Saturday 29th June 2013 – The last two weeks have been exciting here in UK as Donny, Debbie & Joshua have been visiting, Donny’s twitter page has been quiet during this time but hey, they deserve a break ! Donny did post a lovely photo of Debbie & himself in Regent Street, London but also informed us of a new show starting that week which he would be ‘Celebrity Guest’ on the Judging panel, called ‘Your Face Sounds Familiar’, at Elstree Studios. I check a website called SRO Audiences often (especially when any Osmonds are here) to check certain shows that they may appear on, ‘Loose Women’ being one of them ! I thought I would check this new programme & if it was on the website & yes it was, so I applied for tickets & hoped for the best ! The next day Donny tweeted the same website address as fans had been asking where to get tickets, I was quite chuffed I had already applied ! The choice of tickets were for Wednesday evening, a pilot show not to be aired & Saturday evening, a live show, both evenings Donny would be present ! I was very pleased to get my tickets for Saturday & I let everyone know I had some ! I thought Andy would enjoy the show so he decided to come (he does put up with a lot from me !) & I invited Angela & her daughter Eloise came too.

Saturday came, I arranged to meet Angela & Eloise there, but whoever got there first to get in the queue as we had ‘Priority Tickets’ so I wasn’t sure if that meant we had to be there early or we would get in anyway, confusing !! Could not chance NOT getting in with Donny in the building !! Everything was good getting in ( just a slight annoying issue just before going in with a mix up of blue & red wristbands ! ) but we were in ! Warm Up man Andy entertained us & introduced the


judges, Emma Bunton, Julian Clary & Donny ! He received a massive cheer, a lot of the audience were there to see only him, oh & maybe the show ! Donny took photos of the audience & published them on his facebook later, which included hubby Andy, you cannot see me ! Well done Andy, your claim to fame & link to Donny ! See what I mean about him putting up with me !

The show went well for the hour, Donny made Cheryl Ferguson’s day by hugging her, she couldn’t speak ! The show finished & Donny spoke, thanking us for the reception he received, ( I was so hoping for a song ) it was time to go for all of us, what an evening, just to be in the same room as Donny is so special X. Thank you Donny, it was great to be at the show & the opportunity to see you again, see you again soon xx

Goodnight Everybody !

๐ŸŽถDonny’s Autobiography ‘Life is Just What You Make It’ 2005 ๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ““๐Ÿ“–

The place is Waterstones Guildford UK, needed to get there that evening, Donny was signing his new book ‘Life is Just What You Make It‘. Arrived with friend Debbie & of course had to queue, it went up two floors and outside, everyone was passing & asked who was inside ! ๐Ÿค”We queued for a while, got to the steps below floor Donny was on, about 6 people in front of us and then told Donny had to leave !๐Ÿ˜‚ WHAT, how was that happening ! We hovered for ages, no sign of him coming downstairs, the shop Manager said Donny would sign some copies of his book so leave your address & will post a copy to us ๐Ÿ˜ฅ not quite the same is it, but oh well sure Donny didn’t want to go but maybe it was important he had to leave !๐Ÿ™ Maybe saw me coming & thought best go !! Only joking !! Did catch him going into his car, very quickly !๐Ÿ˜–
So disappointed, so close yet so far but Donny doesn’t like to upset his fans so there must have been a reason, maybe ask him ONE DAY ! ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’• xx




And here it is, YES !! ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ““Goodnight Everybody xx

๐ŸŽคDonny at HMV London 2004

Donny was in London 2004, he was making an appearance at HMV Oxford St. singing & signing autographs.
Going back to evening before, I had planned for all of the family to visit London as a day out as the kids on ‘Inset Day’ (school closed for day) & it wasn’t until after the plans did I know that Donny was to be at HMV, to this day my kids still do not believe me & say I planned the trip well ! I promise this was not the case, but no regrets as I met Donny !
We arrived in London early, walked into HMV & no one about, where were the fans ? I asked someone & told they were queued around the building tucked away and they were just coming in & I should join the Section A queue which was coming in now, WOW that was lucky ! My girls joined me but Andy & James watched from afar & the big screen !
Donny performed, amazing as always, then it was time to go on the stage and meet him, Abbie had my photo with Donny from 1977 Tour with her to get signed for me, ‘is that your mom’ he asked & I had DVD ‘Live from Edinburgh Castle’ signed.


Donny was not to stop for photos so unfortunately didn’t get one of those ! A fab time, all happened in less than an hour but what a great experience๐ŸŽค Thanks Donny xx



Goodnight Everybody x

๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽคDonny on Tour 2003 ‘Somewhere In Time’๐ŸŽถ

Friday 14th March 2003 ๐Ÿ’œDonny was in the UK touring & that included the BIC Bournemouth, on the South Coast, during his ‘Somewhere In Time’ Tour, of course I bought tickets & the family were coming too !


We decided to stay overnight in Bournemouth, in walking distance of the BIC. Remember being very excited on the day, checking in to our B&B, we went for an early walk, calling into the BIC for a drink, I wonder why !! & yes Donny was rehearsing behind closed doors of course ! Even the escalators were closed stopping you wandering the building, what did they think would happen !! Anyway, that was a treat, had to leave eventually & back to get ready for later !
Evening arrived, walked down the hill to the BIC, exciting to be in same building as Donny again! #HeMakesMeGoAllFunny!


๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽผ๐ŸŽถ๐Ÿ’ž The funny part of the evening was as we were sitting in our seats at the start I recognised a familiar voice a few seats along my row & it was one of my best friends, Angela, what a surprise to be sitting so close & not seen each other for quite awhile ! (Read about our ‘Osmonds Wondertour’ trip together in my other Blogs x)


Need I say how terrific, fantastic, with a great atmosphere with sooo much screaming, the show was BRILLIANT ( as always) ! Donny, I have to say I could listen & watch you all night, every night ! X I’m not sure how but youngest daughter, aged 4, fell asleep, oh dear !




Photos quite a distance, had to take from screens !

I’m sure the family enjoyed it, hope so, it was great they came along, I know they think I’m mad (& still do!) but when you enjoy yourself & having a FAB TIME it must be a good thing eh !

Goodnight Everybody xx๐ŸŒท
