1. I rarely listen to music so that when I do I find myself back in the time when I first heard that particular album or whatever. Thus have spent the afternoon in 1996 (Loreena McKennitt) and 1998 (Carols from Clare) where I didn't exactly want to be. And still can't find 1994 (Rankin Family, Fare Thee Well Love). (It's a compilation tape that has a version of Brave Marin that youtube wots not of. Thought it might have been by one of the Mcgarrigles but evidently not.)
2. Have written most of my Christmas cards. Can't remember who I sent cards to last year: have a feeling I wimped out on the local ones, but then remember someone thanking me for sending her one.
3. Having had enough of the recurring fly, I bought fly spray yesterday. When fly appeared in the study I swooshed it. fatal error: spray is headachey scented, worse than the worst anti-odorizers. Had to open window and turn on fan.
