Okay... if you're here, chances are that you've followed the Musical Monday image link and are thinking about joining the biggest craze never to sweep the blogoshere.
So here's the deal. If you want to do it too, then - just do it. But put this link on your post and preferably in your sidebar. And then post some music, referring in your post to Musical Monday (of course) and doing it on... well, Monday(s)!

Anyway, before the first of these aural extravaganzas, just a quick apology for not posting or commenting for a couple of days... Saturday was actually really busy, and the day's frenetic activity ended with a nice dinner in one of the more interesting North London suburbs (Belsize Park, if you were wondering). Then, on Sunday, something really wierd happened. I sat down to do a bit of blogging, and you know what? I thought "Fuck it... I really can't be bothered today". So I didn't.
And it's now less than one week before A, my son in NY, comes over. It feels very strange... like the comfort zone in which I've been living is about to be tested. The children (here) are very excited, and so am I... it's just that I know it might not all be plain sailing. But I think we'll be alright. (And I have a ready made babysitter, of course!!)
Right... music then. To start with this is Don't Look Down, by Tindersticks. Know them? You should... and have a listen to Curtains, their best album, if you get the chance. In fact, just buy it. Trust me.
"Spend dying time with your eyes on the ground, looking for the stars"... know that feeling?
