I felt a little bit blue this week. A combination of an argument with a friend, my cat apparently discovering a nest of fledgling blue tits (she's wearing an enormous bell, now), and the nostalgia trip of seeing Pavement play live. (Music really takes me back to the time and place where I used to listen to it and realising that I was sixteen when I was into that stuff and the fact that I'm now, um, nearly twice that age I found slightly depressing.)
A good sleep last night and I'm feeing a bit better. So I've cleaned and polished my bike, I'm going to buy a new basket (wire not wicker, sorry Sarah and Alice! I don't think wicker would suit my bike for some reason). And tonight I'm going to The Narrow Boat, a gorgeous pub next the Regent's Canal, to try and reconjure the Amsterdam vibe, watch the sun go down and have a good chat-up with a friend I've not seen in too long.
Here's a clip of the wonderful Joni. She really is one of my favourite artists. I used to listen to her in my mid-twenties when I was feeling blue. Her album Blue has got to be the all-time number one album of choice for a sad girl to listen to. Guess I've grown out of that too, so now I need new girly angstin' music. Sigh. What do you listen to if you feel blue?
Have a great weekend dudes. x
