Sean bought me the latest Belle and Sebastian CD on Saturday & we listened to it in the car on the way to Dungog, Sunday.
It was LOVELY! Really lovely.
PS I'm sure you'll hear it a LOT in our store over the next couple of weeks, along with the latest Sparklehorse & Julia Stone's solo album. They're both really good too.

After we'd been to Jen's (and Sean helped Daniel build a small deck!) we drove around and checked out where things are.
We found the River so I took some photos for the Blog.
When I was standing looking into this clear water at the riverstones I felt so clearheaded. I cannot explain what I mean exactly, it's been a fairly intense time in our household and this moment just felt cleansing I guess. And no, tempted as I was, I didn't take off my boots & pantyhose & paddle. It was a tad chilly for that. Maybe next time though.
While I'm here, I just wanted to say that I am not a 'professional Blogger' who writes seven Blogs on a Sunday and releases them one day at a time throughout the week. I blog sporadically if I have some news to impart. I do like to occasionally visit the Blogs of "serious Bloggers" but confess that I do not fully relate to that interpretation of what Blogs are about. I am not criticising that approach, more letting you know that you'll be disappointed if you are expecting such standards here. To be honest I simply do not have enough time to Blog regularly. Certainly not daily. Whilst I've been blogging this morning I have also been making replacement Anorak greeting cards & badge sets; composing an updated To Do list in order of priority; doing laundry (ah the glamour) and shooing Jake (neighbour's Grandson) off the mud patch out the front where my tree once stood. Believe me - it is ugly enough out there without him adding to the general mess. That reminds me - time to phone the Water Corp about the turf & replacement tree they've offered.
But I digress into residual crankiness.
Anyways....one of the reasons my Mum bought this house (and we then bought it from her several years later) was because of a lovely, unusually shaped tree out the front of the main bedroom on the other side of the footpath. It was, I'm told, over 20 years old. It had survived the annual savaging by Energy Australia in good grace. Sure it had a rather unique profile due to the apparent dislike/disrespect those "arborists" displayed year after year - but we loved it for it's flaws not despite them. And so did the doves who nested in it. And the fruit bats that came annually to eat it's fruit and chatter all night.
Enough of my raving though.
Here are some photos of the result:
It is a First World Problem.
But one that I had.
