We find that this is a much better way to listen to your favourite tunes rather than listening to it on Spotify or Itunes. Here is a list of our most played records. Continue reading

The perfect Christmas

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas…

Dearest,

You wake up on Christmas morning while the stars are still awake. Your eyes still filled with sleep from the wonderful dream you were dreaming. You look at your window to see if any snow has fallen. To your disappointment, you see no snowflakes on your window. The world has unfortunately not turned white over night. Not that any weather forecast predicted it, nevertheless you still had a tiny bit of hope.  But, that will not spoil your day. You go downstairs to make some tea for yourself. The whole house is quiet as no one seems to have woken up just yet. Continue reading
