‘Nights in White Satin’ – The Moody Blues + ‘One’ – Harry Nilsson

A poignant and old-school music recommendation today. Both of these gems are quite perfect for a lazy Sunday with the sun shining in and a pot of tea on the table. It was along these lines yesterday that we sat and drew feathers with the volume up. We’re on a mission to give our new cats a good, well-rounded and respectable musical grounding. Not sure it’s working. But nonetheless these songs seemed like a necessary addition.

March Wish List (Rugs)

rugsNice rugs.

Since the arrival of two new white feline friends we have been drawn to everything and anything that will camouflage their stray hairs, although undoubtedly any of these would end up as their ultimate scratching post. Perhaps we’ll head to Ikea instead…

Slush List, pt.5

Kiss Me Quick, 16 The Parade, Margate

Debs holding SLUSH small

Price: £2.00 for large

Type: Unknown

Flavours: Full Flavour Mix (FFM)

Notes: This one’s even vaguer than that last slush review. After having a stroll round the Turner Contemporary, then up and down the seafront a few times, we were possessed by an all-consuming thirst for slush. We just so happened to retire into the Tracey Emin-endorsed Kiss Me Quick where we purchased this FFM (#art). To be honest, all I remember is that the flavours didn’t quite taste right all mixed together. Seemed like there was some maverick flavour in there (mango?! kiwi?!). We should have kept it simple on this occasion. To be honest we’re just disappointed in ourselves.

Score: 5/10

‘Good Women’ – Paul Thomas Saunders

Featuring a fleeting appearance from a very nice friend of ours, this song has been in my head for days. I want to lie on my floor and listen to it for hours. And they just happen to be playing at the Barfly tonight.

‘Muizenberg’ – John Wizards

A lovely video for a lovely song. Good colours, good feels, great cymbals. Quite, quite pleasant.

Incredibly Lovable and Extremely Cute: NekoZushi

Sushi cats! Yes, we have no clue either. Just look at these little guys! Accept the mystery.

Slush List, pt.4

Sir Lush, Bosham, West Sussex

Sir Lush

Price: £2.00 for regular

Type: Sir Lush

Flavours: Blue Raspberry

Notes: Trying to channel some of those summer vibes with a look back at some forgotten slush beverages from the archives.  My notes for this simply read, ‘Sir Lush blue rasp tasted like diet’. Average slush experience, made better by a hot day and some red nail varnish. That said, bonus points for the killer name. Whoever this Sir Lush is, we’d like to make his acquaintance.

Score: 5/10

 

CBA DIY

Been getting my craft on to beat the January blues.

Recycling our christmas tree and christmas treats (gin) to make a rather precarious jewellery stand – not sure how long this will last.

Found some surprisingly fetching fabric in Ikea (BLÅVINGE, brilliant) and made a house worth of cushions for just over a fiver.

I’m way too lazy to write out a tutorial but you can check out this one here.

Plenty more where that came from (when we cba).
