I think that I’m not alone in breathing a big sigh of relief that January is over. Siiiiiigh. But onwards and upwards to happier times – valentine’s/palentine’s day! Very marginally nicer weather! Spring cleaning/organisation! (yes, I’m aware that I’m probably the only person excited about that last one). This month I have:
- Played a Wedding Fair for the first time!
- Been selected for the ‘highly recommended’ catagory at the Danny Kyle open stage at Celtic Connections (over 400 acts applied, so we’re pretty pleased to be in the runners-up)!
- knitted an infinity scarf
- Eaten quite a lot of haggis
- Read: The Rise of Endymion (Dan Simmons), The Realist (Asaf Hanukah), Reaper Man (Terry Pratchett), Trainspotting (Irvine Welsh), The Fifth Elephant (Terry Pratchett), The Kalahari Typing School for Men (Alexander MacColl Smith), Blue Shoes and Happiness (AMS), A Study in Scarlet (Arthur Conan Doyle), and am halfway through American Psycho (Bret Easton Ellis).
- Been learning some awesome new songs. Updates to follow!
Did anyone else find #drummondpuddlewatch completely hilarious? And also one of the most British things to have happened in a while… It’s right by my house and that was the one day I took the metro home instead of walking – internet fame denied!
What it’s like to form a band in prison. Really interesting stuff.
I feel like I’ve got back in the swing of things now, but there was a lot of this going around earlier this month: Britains pretend to go back to work!
Such an ace tribute to David Bowie – what was he doing when he was your age? In my case, he was putting the finishing touches to the character of Ziggy Stardust and releasing his 5th album!
From fellow acapella folk person Josh from The Longest Johns – An open letter to my beard.
I hope that Feburary treats you well! See you next month for another round-up post xx
