Amy Macdonald updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@amymacdonald) on Monday (January 19), talking about her visit to Milan, Italy and German sales of her debut album. The Scottish singer/songwriter tells readers:
So as you can tell from the title I was in Milan over the weekend. I say over the weekend but it really was a whistle stop visit. I flew to London on Saturday night, then to Milan at the crack of dawn Sunday, then back to London at 3pm and back to Glasgow yesterday evening. I do have to wade into the war about Heathrow as I’m there so bloody often. Heathrow either needs a new runway or they have to get rid of a huge number of flights. The place is far too busy to cope. Last night on my flight home we sat on the runway waiting to take off for over an hour. This doesn’t just inconvenience the people flying it’s also a pain for the people waiting to pick them up at the other side as once the doors of the plane are closed you can’t use your mobile and have no way of letting them know you’re going to be late. What a nightmare.
This pretty much happens to me every time I fly from Heathrow and with the horrible credit crunch doom and gloom then I think the best thing to do is expand the airport and try to boost the economy. Ok that’s my first rant over :-)
So Milan was great, the Italian label are all really lovely and have worked so hard over the past year. This is the Life is now the 4th most played song on Italian radio and it continues to grow :-)
