D has her 1st annual check up after the surgery last June…

It should be all ok now, Back in my Myspace days it was traumatic, but the surgery seems to have worked, D has a bucket ful of energy , and has gained weight, and height at leaps and bounds…thank God

 Having Kids who are sick, is aweful, in the fact you would do anything to take their place. but hopefully she will be signed off on thursday,

 Alot of people critisize the NHS, at the moment I have a lot to thank them for !!


 Dentist tonight, JOY !


 Our neighbour reckons someone jumped over our back wall, to have a look around, then tried to get into his garage….so last night I fixed the security light, put up some sharp ( ish) chicken wire to cover a hole between the gate and top off the shed, , and today I need to get a hasp and staple for the shed,


Those railings still need painting..

..   Missed Jools Holland last night, Gladys knight, ( no pips ) and Shakira,  worth watching for 2 different reasons …! 

oh well work is upon me, more later..


Lisa Hannigan’s new album is very good,

quirky, light and airy,

but very, good.

I saw Raphael on Later, Live with Jools Holland, and was impressed, though not sure whether he was genuine about his style of music, ( a mixture of Motown, and Philedelphia sounds ) , but i liked it enough to get the album ” The way I see it ”

A review on line said it was very simular to the Stlylistics and Delfonics, ( If it was anything near these, it has to be good, right ? ! ”

 And sure enough it is very good, a couple of plays, and it is good for driving to  !

There are excellant collaberations with Stevie Wonder, Joss Stone, and Jay-z, “sometimes” and the re-mixed version of Oh Girl, with Jay-z are brilliant, Fat Motown hooks, and catchy lyrics.

Well worth a listen, if you want to hear a Motown , with a modern twist.


   Darcy now loves the version of “enjoy yourself” by Jools Holland and Prince Buster !!    She has nearly learnt the chorus , and yesterday demanded it be played 3 times in a row !!!!


haha very good Darcy !

  booked the annual event, for Jayne and I. Yep Jools Holland is booked again for december ! 

If anyone finds time to read, read J.H ‘s autobiography, it has to be one of the best books i’ve read in a while! a very uplifting and happy book from a true musical talent.

 “best of friends” is played daily now in our house, even darcy sings the chorus to “enjoy your self “
