Merry Mid Winter
Ah 'tis that special time of the year. The sun has moved aspect and now light is more abundant. We will find from tomorrow that the days are longer and so it's time for summer holiday adverts to appear on telly again. For those who suffer SAD it's gonna start getting better. For those who suffer XMAS overspending syndrome, it may get better in March, but I doubt it. For those who simply brought an evergreen into the house to remember that in the depths of winter life still goes on - well done you fucking hippy (that includes me).
As the year draws to a close light a candle to the ones you loved and lost this year, maybe have a little dance and then move on - It may be the darkest day, but hope springs eternal and before you know it you'll be complaining it's too hot, too wet or that you didn't get Glastonbury tickets again. (CLUE: there are better festivals out there)
It's a cycle you see, and I intend to cycle hard until I fall off my bike.
Sadly Londoninium is slightly more than a hop and a skip away these days, although it is a Thursday and I do have somewhere to crash in town these days... hmmmm. Wanders off to count my penny jar.

New Model Army - nemosandman
NMA have been my favourite band for the least 20-odd years. I was pootling around youtube earlier and found these videos by a guy called nemosandman. They are quite brilliant. Purity stands out and I would dearly love to see one for Before I get Old if you find yourself here nemo
Many thanks to Wibbler - back on the block good to see ya - for this link. It is both very funny and seriously moving. I will be forwarding this to quite a few people, some who fit the ADHD diagnosis and some who have children who are labouring under the restrictive educational system which labels their children as in some way sub-normal.
If you know someone that fits either category or even if you think a friend will enjoy it for the laughs send it on. It deserves a very wide audience.
