How musicals have ruined the world for me #4

It doesn't matter how subtley you try to dance down the street, your friends will notice and laugh at you. Trust me on this one.

Lundi Loves

There's so much I want to make right now and not enough time! Here are a few of them:

Wiksten made Had a great post on knitting socks earlier this month that has me itching to give it a try. If you know any good patterns please share :)

Art as Life have these lovely flowers in their etsy shop. They are so pretty I am going to have to make something similar or buy some!

How cute is this cushion cover?! Rowan have the pattern for free on there website at the moment

It's still cold here at the moment so I think I might just need to knit me one of Hey! Jen Renee's GAP tastic cowls...

Lastly I can not wait for the new album from these guys...

How musicals have ruined the world for me #3

In real life you will get noticed singing on public transport (and not in a good way)...

I live around an hour and a half from London but there are still lot's of parts of it I've never been. I've been going there a lot more lately (boy lives there) and this weekend we went to Portobello market. It was my first time there and it was VERY busy but well worth a visit. It's got me thinking about other things I've never seen there like the cathedrals or the tower...

Were do you recommend for the next time I visit?

So I've yet again been negleting my blog over what's been a pretty awesome Christmas. I got to spend some time with some very lovely people and have been rather spoilt with food and gifts.

My friends band played their last gig together which was rather sad but it was a great night. A few of us also went to see one of my favourite local bands The Dawn Chorus in a fairy light and candle filled Wedgewood Rooms.

I'm back at work now (literally right now as this is my lunch break) however I will try and update more later this week. Maybe with a picture!

The Drums

Back at the beginning of December I went to see The Drums play Portsmouth Pyramids.

First up were History of Apple Pie. They played some of this summers NME tour but not the Portsmouth leg. Unfortunately the set was marred by some technical sound issues. However they seemed pretty good and a band I'll keep a look out for.

Next; Cloud Control. This band blew my mind. I'd listened to the album before but it hadn't grabbed me (I must have been having a off day). Since seeing them I've re listened many, many times. Anyway, the band seem lovely, History of Apple Pie gave them a shout out. The set was far too short and ended with the bassist drumming on his amp whilst splinters of drum stick flew off everywhere.

After Cloud Control I wasn't that fussed about seeing The Drums and while they didn't match the former they were still great to watch. The lead singer has some awesome dance moves after all! That said a lot of people were pretty pissed that they didn't play the song below. Personally I think it's a pretty brave move but one that  would have paid off ok, letting the newer songs get some more attention, except that the last song of the encore was awful.
