It’s my birthday today, just turned a whopping 30! Enough of that though, I hate fuss which is why i’m having a nice quiet one with the Mrs. Surrounded by all the things I feel like i’ve not had time for recently because of busy work, good books, ace music and plenty of art supplies…perfect.

What’s with the doodle? this is the album cover to the Bluetones, expecting to fly…one of my favourite albums so it felt right to reminisce of days gone by now i’m proper old. I have an older brother and 3 sisters who all very much influenced me in terms of what music I listened to, this was one of the first albums I bought after they all left home and I was left to fend for myself. It should have been my first gig also but I had to make a choice between that and the manic street preachers at the music hall in Aberdeen (06/10/96 I still have the ticket) but couldn’t afford both.

I’ll take this time to thank all the people who have wished me happy birthday and would like to say a special thanks to my ace wife who at the moment is very much pregnant (due Oct) and has been suffering pretty much every morning with extreme morning sickness, got up this morning and cooked me breakfast. Much love x
