Romance is not dead!!

We decided that we were going to have a quiet night in the apartment on Friday night. We had dinner and then watched a bit of TV....an old episode of Friday Night with Jules Holland came on and after listening to it we decided to dig out our old LP's. (Yes, we still have a record player!!). We discovered that we have a lot of old crappy LP's but in amongst them were a few wee gems. Chris introduced me to The Notting Hillbillies and played their album 'Missing Presumed Having A Good Time'. I was surprised....I really liked them...they are a kinda mix of country (without the slit your wrists stuff) and blues. We ended up waltzing round the apartment which was rather romantic and a first for us!!

  1. We dance around the house too, somtimes the cats and dogs join in. It's great fun. As for your Notting Hillbillies, I think they were miming to Dire Straits! Debs x

    You are such a pair! I love the image of you both waltzing around your apartment probably being watched by the Splats:-)

  3. Debs - It's not something that Chris and I do often so it was actually really lovely!!

    I'm not surprised they sound a bit like Dire Straits....they were formed by Dire Straits singer/guitarist Mark Knopfler :-)

    Lane - It's a fab album title isn't it!!!

    We had fun and we were watched by both slats for about three seconds before Lugs decided to be terrified and run away. (He really is stupid!!).

  4. Aaah, what a lovely story. I quite like the music, but it could do with being a bit more wrist splitty. ;-P
