hello again

sorry it's been such a while (again) but what with comings and goings and oh all those things you know here's just not really been somewhere i've ended up and when i've been just round the corner or caught it out of the corner of my eye or almost waved at it from the top of the bus it's almost always been with the thought that it must be about time to put the closed sign in the window the winter opening at the very least but then here i am again all golden anniversaried all how to be a good old ladying all checking the woolens for nibbles and most especially all grateful as anything for the lovely lovely people these tatty pages have brought my way that mean i really must try to at least give the old thing a little stroll around the boating lake and chips on the way home before her knees give out entirely...

i love this record*... it does such terrible things to me every time but oh my oh my...

joni - chinese cafe/ unchained melody


*i say record but it's off of one of the tiny pile of compact discs i've ever bought. the whole of travelogue is a true wonder so do get if you're without.
