I’ve got a small green box where I keep pictures cut from magazines, leaflets, newspapers. I hadn’t looked in it for ages but was after some photos of tiny plastic babies for Lyd and thought they might be in the green box. They weren’t but I found some real treats. 

This is from a Nigel Slater piece in the Observer in about 1994.

A rather depressing litter haul. Most of it came from the hedgerows round the lovely field we’ve all been trying to protect. I think we need to look after it a little better. Not walk past when we see litter. Challenge anyone we see throwing an empty bottle or dropping a sweet wrapper or crisp packet.

A midweek treat. Folkie Sam Lee with Rachel and Becky Unthank (and friends) performing beautiful arrangements of WW1 poems, mostly by women writers. The simple staging and understated musicianship perfectly complemented the gorgeous vocals. They’re only doing 3 gigs I think so very lucky to witness this last night. Well spotted Mr Walsh.

Worth the wait. #Tonbruket Dig It To The End. Took him a while to find his way after EST but he’s flying now.

When The Tiger Lillies come off stage and mingle…..they are just a tiny bit scary. Fab gig in an old swimming pool with Charles double-barrelled and his even more eccentric son Sam.
