Watching Rishi In The Rain

His suit looked very soggy, I really hope it doesn’t shrink. I am sure it will be good quality and not prone to such things. But he did look a bit forlorn smiling and dripping as “Things can only get better” drifted on the wind from the Pro EU protesters just outside the Downing St gates.

A new recording of an old song for you.

Love too Strong For You

It’s been a quiet week here in Bedfordshire, though. And a lot of rain again. Today I was finishing off a recording mostly. It was too wet to to go anywhere though so here I stayed all day. And it has set a few aches and pains off. That always seem to set pains off when its damp.
Time takes its toll I guess. I am also a little bored to be honest. I was recording most of yesterday and my brain seems a bit fried. I just got an idea for a song with an interesting lyric. Dare I record it and sing it. Time will tell. But I have the idea now in my head. maybe I should. I do feel very weird these days and a mass of contradictory urges and desires. Can I get a pill for that, I wonder? Maybe.

It’s Not Been The Best Week

Some good news, we got our washing machine replaced. Apart from that not much. Also I finally tested negative for covid this afternoon, so that at least is a plus. But otherwise an annoying and somewhat difficult week, and I still feel crap. My voice is just about still here. Otherwise I am still very fatigued, which is I suppose to be expected though.

Below is a new tune for your listening pleasure.

I posted a couple of songs on TikTok. It’s a weird place. People are starting to use my music there a bit too. It’s an interesting experiment though how useful it is who knows? But usually all publicity is good publicity as they say. The comment’s are very odd at times. But hey that’s life.

Going Forward Then Boldly?

My Covid is slowly abating thank goodness though I am pretty fatigued so my plan for world domination is going to be delayed again ever so slightly. Everything aches but I am just about functional though a little bit more chaotic than usual. My brains a bit fried so i may not be too creative right now. I haven’t seen the Aurora. There might be a slight chance of it being visible tonight though I am not holding my breath. I notice that in the last couple of years a lot of internet content seems to be disappearing behind paywalls which is a shame as it means I no longer get to see a lot of stuff as an older person(pensioner/senior) on a limited income I simple can’t afford to set up multiple subscriptions for stuff much as I would like to be able to support independent writers and journalists.

I am feeling better but very fatigued and hopefully the Covid is almost gone. It peaked on the day I actually got the positive test result, so its lasted about 9 days from start to finish. That’s not to bad as when I had it in 2022 it was very severe and I was ill for nearly 3 weeks. Also then it left me quite wobbly and fatigued for about a month. Last night I glanced a loft a couple of times but alas no aurora. I also watched a few minutes of the new Dr Who. I expect I give that a go on Iplayer at some point. I also thought I would listen to the Eurovision winning song. Not really my sort of thing being an ageing Prog rock, Folk and Jazz/ Classical music fan. But clever production and all that. As for the dancing up and down the weird wobbly disc thing, fair play but Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers would have done it better. Also would not have worn those shoes with that frock 😉
