I would not have considered myself a fan of Adele although I have liked her work to date.

I have just watched her Live Lounge session for Radio 1 today and it is AMAZING.  I would have to say she has to be the best pop act we have in the UK currently - certainly the best singer by a country mile!

If you're in America I don't know if you'll be able to watch but I'll put the link up for anyone who stumbles along and wants to watch.

Tax Month

hahaha... I can tell I'm getting close to doing my tax return now - I'm back on my blog!  As procrastinating goes this is usually one of the last things I do before cracking on with the work... so WOO HOO - Tax here I come.

Happy Very Belated New Year!

Well the year started very well with a lovely long weekend in Crianlarich in a rented house shared with 4 good friends.

Crianlarich is beautiful.

Holiday highlights:  Food was wonderful and company excellent.  We won a pub quiz!  Then found out it was meant to be for the coach party only, and we weren't supposed to have entered.   They let us keep the prize (see photo!)

We walked approx 10k from Crianlarich to Tyndrum over the hills through lots of ice.  It was really hard!  And fun.  Many sections of the path were thickly coated in a sheet of ice.  The ice was very slippery.  We also had to cross 4 frozen rivers (would have been fords had they been running so you could step over the shallow stoney ground! Instead they were ice rinks which one of our friends crossed on her bum!).

So now it's back into the grind, and as ever it's tax-return month so I'm avoiding doing it by pretending to be far too busy... which means I can't blog.
