The view from the office this morning...

At lunchtime, along to Dalry...

These six CDs for £2 at the Cats Protection shop...

Their labels are annoyingly sticky...

..and these two for 99p each at the Salvation Army shop...

The bargains (sort of) keep on coming...

The view from the office this evening...

Word from Scott Renton at Club Nitty Gritty - CBQ can play on Friday January 17 - I arrive back from a week in Spain that very day but decided to accept...

Now trying to convince my band mates that we can play a CBQ set together, as we have a month to get it sorted...

There is a mixture of enthusiasm, reticence, worry and non-responsiveness across the group...

I can, of course, always play solo...

Stu was to have been round tonight for some work but car trouble scuppered that...

Instead, I listened to our trio rehearsal from a week or so ago and then compiled this week's podcast, which will feature 4 tracks from the Decembers of each of the last six decades - 12 singles and 12 album tracks...

So that's kind of festive...

Meanwhile, Anne's latest painting...

...is finished...

A weird "Holby City" tonight...

Oh well..

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Rescheduled gig
