Last night in bed, I decided to play music to Kid A from my phone.


The first song that came on was “Breathe by The Prodigy.

Kid A liked – there was quite a lot of kicking!

Other winners included Crystal Castles, Rage Against The Machine and a few kicks for Norma Jean.

I think Norma Jean was a win because Aaron Weiss was a guest vocalist on the particular song being played 🙂


C’mon baby, let’s get out of the cold.

January 18, 2011, could well be the best day I will have*


For my Christmas present and B’s birthday present (poor boy has the same birthday as Jesus. How that would suck.) my parents got us tickets to see Grinderman.

Oh my glory. I am so freaking excited!


I knew Dad would be keen on seeing them and then Mum wanted to go too. Friggin best parents ever.


Did I mention GRINDERMAN. As in NICK CAVE.




O Children

Easily the best part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Nick Cave is too amazing for words.

It’s that time of year again.

Kid A.

December 15, 2010

I like baking. I’m just not halfway near brilliant as my friend Em at it.


However I am good at baking babies apparently…


14 weeks ago we found out I was 7 weeks up the proverbial duff, which is such a nice way of putting it.


Today I had my 20 week check up at the health centre – I was 21 weeks on Sunday.


Kid A is due around Easter – fingers crossed for a arrival on due date, which both my brother and I did. Apparently this only happens in approx 1% of births!


Kid A at 20 weeks.


Kid A is pretty rad – last night it went to it’s first gig and saw Muse. Pretty sweet first gig I think.

Frankly Mr Shankly

I found this AMAZING, words can’t describe, can’t get enough of mix of Radiohead’s Videotape and The Smiths Frankly Mr Shankly by Charlie Barns.



Oh lord, it almost breaks my heart.

I don’t have many Christmas traditions, but there is one that must happen numerious times in that time period.

It used to be much easier when there was a Starbucks 10 minutes away from home, then the 40 plus minutes it takes on a train nowadays.

Their gingerbread latte/iced latta/frapp is to die for.

I was in the city with Blair yesterday  and while she was off getting her travel injections (porr girl) I had an hour sitting at Starbucks drinking the most glorious iced gingerbread latte ever.


While doing a little google search, I found a few different recipes for gingerbread syrup…

Happy days!
