I won’t name the person in question as she’s far too modest and wrinkles her nose up at praise. Pay her a compliment and she accepts gracefully but always adds “funny how people see you isn’t it?”. I’ll leave it up to her if she wants to share this post. Today is her birthday and well, she’s truly been a bloody brilliant friend to me the past year.
She’s helped me move house on a Monday night straight from work, carrying boxes and boxes of books to the top floor of my building. Shared many a glass of wine and gin. Shared some special gigs. Reminded me I’m well loved during tough times. I remember a particularly low day last July she sat opposite me in a pub in Marylebone. Her expressions a complete mirror of my own, she was genuinely as upset as I was. To me that’s a dear friend, someone whose very expressions show they’re going through it with you. She’s an amazing person.
Happy Birthday and I’ll see you later so you can blow out the candles on your Eton Mess. ♥

Usually I am far more involved in the mixtape element of this blog. I spend hours carefully choosing out the tracks, tracking down or creating a bit of artwork to add to the piece, revisiting the order of the music. But here is the thing, the revelation I was not expecting to make. I have become utterly obsessed with the Olympics. I am watching ALL the sports.
Therefore, here is a hastily compiled letter K mixtape if any of you out there happen to be nonplussed with the sport fever that has taken our fair Island by storm. From Kelis to The Kinks, Kings of Leon to The Knife.
Listening to Hounds of Love reminds me of a young drunken phase Jo and I used to go through, where we would take off our shoes and launch them without caring to look where or what they’d potentially hit when the lyrics seemed to command it. If you have been clobbered by a passing ballet shoe during this song get in touch, we probably owe you a pint.
