Last Friday after my Wexford show I was stolen by four hilarious women who’d been at the show and they brought me to a pub and fed me Jaeger Bombs & white wine. When I had to leave they poured the remainder of my white wine into a water bottle so that I could take it with me . Kindred spirits. It was like a really positive kidnapping experience and it was so much fun and I’d like to be stolen in this manner more often. I thoroughly enjoyed my Wexford GLEEBAG at @jestfestwex 🙌🏼🙌🏼 thanks so much to everyone who came and especially Gavin who allowed me use and abuse him... And to the @crown.live for having me.. here are the photographic talents of @nikstix_photography who is feckin deadly 💕 💥💥💥🥐🥐🥐🥐🥐🥐🥐
