2000 Trees_Big Blue Sun_Dan singing*

George, my husband, and his best mate Dan are in a band called Big Blue Sun and they opened the Leaf Lounge at the 2000 Trees festival on Friday.  Dan writes songs inspired by ordinary human experiences, love and life in Gloucester and never misses a note even when he’s feeling under the weather or full of cold.  I love the stories the lyrics weave and find their music moving.  I admit I’m biased (lovely music is inevitable from such a lovely bunch of people surely?).  The programme promised if you love The Beatles and Bob Dylan you’d love Big Blue Sun’s quirky folk tunes and hauntingly slow melodies that seem to somehow drift along with the breeze.  Don’t believe me though, decide for yourself… grab a cuppa and watch the short video below or stream their album using the Big Blue Sun link above while you carry on doing what you’re doing.

    Lovely. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Almost as good as being there – well not really, I wish I had been. And to just prove how much I enjoyed this (and the rest of your blog) … I burnt my tea while reading and watching!

    (Top tiperooni … burnt saucepan … add washing powder and simmer gently. Burnt food lifts off miraculously.)

    is it any consolation to know that I often do that too? especially rice and burning the steamer pan (which thankfully leaves the food intact if not a little smoked). thanks for the cleaning up tip :o)

Someone was excited to find friends have come to stay. "Help Mummy and Daddy decorate the Christmas tree" is the #kindnesselves first suggestion.

#gloucesterlife It snowed all day and we were indoors with poorly boys (they had a 15 minute  play in the yard at least). This is what the allotment is probably looking like (#onefromthearchives January 2013). #nipitinthebudblog #snowyallotment #allotmentgardening #newblogpost - an @oxouk stocking fillers gift guide .  The steel jigger is our absolute favourite this year :0)

We've decided to book the community hall at our local cafe like we did a few years ago.  His 3rd birthday cake and jungle themed food will be a hard act to follow and he's chosen Dr Seuss for his theme so goodness knows what sort of cake we'll pull out the bag for this one! #birthdaycake #birthdaypartyfood #nipitinthebudblog #willywonkacake Rather intrigued by these!!!! @Regranned from @marksandspencer -  Introducing the avocado you never knew you needed. Our new cocktail avocados don’t have a stone and are completely edible (yes including the skin) In stores now in limited supply. 🥑🥑🥑 - #regrann
