I love this kind of stuff but have very little time or energy these days to read about these things.
Just to counteract that, seeing that it's New Years Eve, have some party music for tonight!

We've been fairly busy this week, a few parties including a lovely Winter Solstice party at Roxy's house.
She made some yummy croissanty mincemeat twisty things. I have managed to find some dough since and I'll give it a go too. Last minute shopping and Happy Feet yesterday and a search for fairy lights that work today. That failed. Our old ones died yesterday so bought some more and they died after a few seconds. *touchwood* we still have some on the tree that work.tree
Pressies are all built (that Tardis set was a bugger, plastic thingys everywhere) and wrapped. Buzzcocks, pringles and I'm off now!

Just a few christmas tunes I've picked out. Best not to watch number 3 if in the vicinity of small ears though unless you fancy being asked what a "chuff mountain" is at an inappropriate festive moment! Once I heard this version of In Dulce Jubilo it was never the same again. It's hard not to sing along when you hear it in a shop!

I usually like to find some festive covers. There's a whole blog just for Last Christmas covers and you can find a few gems on the Coverville podcasts.

I read this account of life in SWF during the war on the BBC site a while ago now and while flicking through a book of old pics I found the shop. It was actually built by some relatives on my husband's side of the family.
It's now a private home that I walk past everyday on the school run. Nice to see there was once a time when Asda didn't rule.
They are knocking down a fair few old buildings these days so I might try and capture a few before they go.
