Christmas posts part 9


The snow came back again today, leaving us to have a horrendous journey home from work.

Seriously unamused by all this now.

And it’s a year since our beloved cat Jake died.

Hmm…some music, methinks…

These tracks I have posted in the past, but not for some time, so hopefully these will be new to at least some of you!

Aereogramme -‘Asthma Came Home For Christmas.’ mp3

Mew -‘She Came home For Christmas.’ mp3

65 Days Of Static -‘I’m Dreaming Of A White Noise Christmas.’ mp3

Some more Christmas tunes for you


Is Christmas starting to get you down?! After a fairly difficult year which I have only alluded to in passing on the blog, I’ve felt surprisingly festive here. Mind you, the last time I looked at facebook, one friend had written ‘All this fuss for just one day?!’ and I guess I can see why some folks are getting more than a little stressed.

It’s actually been snowing in Edinburgh -which looks pretty -until it starts melting, then freezes again…but look at it this way, there’s only five days to go.

Half Man Half Biscuit -‘It’s Cliched To Be Cynical At Christmas.’ mp3

Housewives On Prozac -‘I Broke My Arm Christmas Shopping At The Mall.’ mp3

Ron Sexsmith -‘Something To Hold On To (At Christmas).’ mp3

Wounded Knee -‘Cold Enough for Snow.’ mp3* (see top)

65 Days Of Static -‘I’m Dreaming Of A White Noise Christmas.’ mp3

In a few hours we will know who has been successful in the battle for the Christmas no.1…
