Last minute Xmas shopping was continued from last night's unmentioned session...

This of course included a walk along a festive looking Rose St to Fopp for a further couple of purchases, having checked first with the CD list to ensure no doublers were obtained...


Post an excellent tea from the Exec Producer, Mr Brad Mehldau delighted in the Cloudland Blue Mobile as we drove to Loanhead to visit mum and sister Pam - now without clips holding her wound together...

A good visit, with Pam rested well and in high spirits - her first time seeing Anne since this episode began...

In the pic below she has not inherited my mum's bent-overness, she was merely ensuring her worked-upon head made it into the frame...


Back home to a G&T nightcap and some further ripping of recent acquisitions - including a present today from Chris-with-a-Ch of a 2CD set of Depeche Mode remixes - tasty...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : A family visit...

Tool - good band and, if you like them you could do worse than checking out The Beyond - a trio from Yorkshire who were signed to Harvest in the early nineties - Tool sound just like 'em

Nice...
