Guys I’m totally distraught with worry. My cat Toots has gone missing now since Thursday. I’m totally sick with worry. She’s a street wise cat but she’s only little.

Please everyone pray that I find her, she means the world to me s xxxx

But I can tell you that my guests are incredibly talented stars of Scotland who were all very familiar with! That’s all I’m saying…. you’ll have to just come to the gigs to discover who the guests are!! I’m especially excited about the Glasgow and Dundee gigs… Got some killer guests for these two shows!!!

Sandi Thom checked in with fans on her blog at MySpace (@sandithom) on Tuesday (December 23), commenting on her participation in Hogmanay, SXSW, label issues, the economy and wishing fans Merry Christmas. The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
So not too long til SXSW (for those who dont know its a festival in Texas) really looking forward to it as everyone from Amy Winehouse to KT have been there and its had a really big effect on their career in the US. After SXSW were gonna be heading North to Chicago taking in a few gigs on the way and then East to New York… my favorite place in the world!
It’s going to be such an exciting few months what with the UK tour and then off to the States again. Although as soon as I get back I’m gettin stuck into my next album, oh my friends I can’t wait to get this one on the shelf… it’s so important to me… I’m not going to let my label hijack this one like they did the last… I was under so much pressure to make my second album I felt suffocated and I fear this may have resulted in it not being as successful as the first… but I won’t let that happen again… I refuse to let anyone pressurize me to finish it.
Sandi Thom updated fans on her blog at MySpace (@sandithom) on Tuesday (December 16), sharing her thoughts on Alexandra Burke winning the fifth season of ‘The X Factor’ over the weekend. The Scottish singer songwriter tells readers:
So who watched the X Factor!?! You know I did. Wow!!! What a nail biter! I’m so chuffed that Alexandra won! She’s such a great British talent and omg I was so overwhelmed by her performance with Beyonce! I had the Kleenex out I tell ya! Beyonce’s such an amazing woman and I can only imagine how Alex felt to be standing next to her on stage! I had a lump in my throat for her!
Yip she deserved to win that hands down!!
Sandi Thom tells Glasgow’s The Daily Record her third album will be the release that will help her crack America. “My next album will be my best,” the 27-year-old singer songwriter insisted. “I feel like my second album was too rushed. I felt under quite a lot of pressure when I was making it. I was out on the road and my label was really hassling me to get it finished. I admit I was disappointed with it and now, when I look back, it was released too soon. There were some things that were overlooked. It wasn’t thought out properly. So, with my next album, I’m going to put my foot down and spend as long as it takes to make it.” Read more.

So, let me tell you what I have been up to the past few weeks… I have just finished applying for SXSW in Texas next year so I am really excited about the prospect of playing there!!

So, so… I have been crazy busy with lots of things and I am gearing up for a trip abroad in the next few weeks but its top secret so I cannot tell you what it is until I get back!!!
I also found time to get to some London Fashion Week shows though which has been really cool!! Don’t know if I told you guys but I made friends with Jimmy Choo and he sent me these amazing shoes which I wore to the British Fashion Council Party the other night, most comfiest heels I have ever worn!!! I was wearing this awesome ballgown by Aimee McWilliams whose a great new Scottish designer, it was absolutely beautiful… the trouble is though, it was too long!!! Blatantly had been made for someone who was 7ft tall so my 5ft2 little self was drowned in it… Everyone commented on it saying how gorgeous it was but now I know how brides feel when they have to go pee in their wedding dresses!!! Ha Ha!!
