I surround myself with people that are cooler than me in the hope that some of it will rub off on me. Oops! My secret is out. Luckily for me I have a husband who knows the cool – the films, the TV shows, the magazines, the random cool things from the internets. My little sister for all things related to retails. Especially clothes/jewelery etc. My brother in law being a chef keeps us in the loop on food – where to eat/what’s hot and new (hello beef ribs I will make you soon). And then there are the gazillion things I find on the interwebs from all of you cool people out there – see? I am a nobody.
My big brother keeps me in the loop with the cool music alongside with Rob. He sends me little hints and tips, play lists that I inevitably download, like, and then can look cool when I recommend it to others. He sent me a cracking list last week and I asked him if I could share it on the blog – it was a good list – others might like it too. So I emailed him and his reply was something along the lines of “If you must” so I am. Because I must. This week I am spending a whole lotta time at home – mostly because of the rain, but because of the cooking and winding down after a busy year. These tunes are helping the time pass a little more pleasantly. Hope you enjoy them too!

Now, I am off to the butcher to pick up many kilos of meat and get a gravy started before heading off to some Christmas drinks later on this afternoon. Tomorrow it’s the first of the Christmas visitors to arrive, after a trip to the movies, Friday hair and then Saturday as much food prep as I can get done. It’s a crazy time of the year isn’t it? And I love it.
