Right then. Thursday-usually a good day. Friday imminent, the weekend very near and everything in the garden is fragrant (or rotting slowly because of neglect, one of the two). And I don't need to read a book today! That's right. Not a page needs to be turned (apart from the Robert Harris for book club which I suppose undermines that a little). Instead I'm seeing the new Tom Hanks movie Captain Phillips and I'm just a little excited about it. Not only is TH my fave interview ever but Paul Greengrass has directed and anyone who saw the last 2 Bourne movies, or Green Zone will know what a classy line up that is. I'll get back to you...
And if that wasn't enough, Nigel turns up with a fancy root veg gratin for tea. Good day!
And after the Sir Ben Ainslie inspired win for the USA over New Zealand for the Americas Cup yesterday, coming back from 8-1 down to win 9-8, I think COME BACKS will keep  our creative juices flowing.
Have a crisis-free, achievement-filled Thursday, see you after 5.

    I have been meaning to say all day it is good to have you back Arthur! As well as the aforementioned wine (shiraz here too) and cheese I had oatcakes. And a smelly dog at my feet desperate for some cheese.

    I have had a dull evening dealing with dull bits of papers, the wine helped though and shuffle has just given me Joni Mitchell's Amelia, Tom Petty, Radiohead and now The Beatles so not all bad.

    A mention on my first day back? I missed it! Double drat but I'm grinning like a grinny thing :o)

    I have wine and it is rather lovely too. Mine is a Shiraz AND I have cheese. All is well.

    Good night all

    Well done to anyone who achieved a mention - loved the Resurrection Shuffle, Billie.

    Sleep tight

    Evening all

    New role at work means I've been super-busy and not able to get on, hope all are well.

    Just watched the first episode of the new series of Nashville. Couldn't wait for the UK start, whenever that's going to be, when there's new music by great songwriters to be heard :-)

    First ep has a new co-write by Gretchen Peters/Mary Gauthier, and a song by Kim Richey and they are both gorgeous, albeit we only see half of the songs. If the rest of the series is up to the same standard musically the soundtrack album will be worth having I think.

    I love how The Feeling’s version of the school song has been played the last 3 Thursdays. Long may it continue.

    I like you could be right Sal - I had a notion I’d heard a mention for terrahurtz before but perhaps not - congratulation anyway and definitely a debut mention for Craigie-boy - well done.

    Very happy to read you had a good time in Inverness Sal - it has been too long since I’ve been back.

    Nigel’s thing sound lovely tonight - I have a notion to make it with the salmon I was planning for tomorrow.

    On the basis it is Thursday and I’ve not had any all week I have wine and very lovely it is too.


    Resurrection Shuffle - Ashton Gardner & Dyke - Billie
    Tubthumping - Chumbawamba - Muggle
    Not Fade Away - The Rolling Stones - Arthur & Craigie-boy
    Don’t Stop Believing - Journey - Muggle
    Baby Come Back - The Equals - terrahurtz

    Posting here as I'm not sure if my twitter account [Personal details removed by Moderator] is working.
