Saturday night's alright for writing

While most people my age are probably on the Jagerbombs by this time on a Saturday I prefer to sit here with a glass of red and update this ol' thing.

Well, I did get around to doing some painting at long last, and while it's safe to say I don't think I'll be winning the Turner prize anytime soon it gave me a great sense of satisfaction just to be holding a brush again.

I present er...Untitled

Today has been spent indulging my favourite hobby of music buying. I went to my favourite little record stall in Truro (Music Nostalgia - I'll give them a plug just in case anyone who may read this is in the area) and got my hands on a feast of Proggy goodness. Best of's from Camel and Family, a Steve Hackett concert DVD and Emerson, Lake & Palmer's 'Works' album on vinyl.

And now I must dash because I've got less than an hour before the documentary on Ken Russell is on the tele and I've got a curry to cook yet.



  1. Curry, Ken, Painting, Prog and a glass of red, what more could you wish for on a Saturday? Looking forward to the Ken doc, plus two films-the DH Lawrence adaptations Women In Love and The Rainbow. The latter I've always felt was very underrated.

  2. PS Like the painting....and Jagerbombs, haha, you do make me laugh! Not for us here in 1972 :)

  3. Yes of course I forgot they haven't even been invented yet! haha ;-)
