It’s been a long time since I’ve had to think about what’s next for me. It’s been nice to have the time and peace to work it out. Ultimately I’m following what my heart’s telling me. I type this while sat at my piano. Who knows what might happen next."

At the beginning of August during his holiday, Gary had revealed that he was enjoying making more music, but that while some of it was for specific projects, some was just for him. He wrote: "I’m out of my suits and back in the studio today. I’ve got so much new music on the go. Some of it is specific to projects I’m involved in. Some of it is just me, writing what’s in my mind and heart. I’m never worried about where my music ends up. It will find a home. Sometimes years later songs I’ve written come back in play. There’s no timing to why and where music comes from. The important thing is to just get it out. I love writing so much!"

Nearly 25 years of her company and we’re still going strong. The kids and me will be making sure she has the best day."
