So this month my 14 devoted subscribers will have noticed I have been absent from blogging. I thought I could do it, but writing a book in a month was slightly challenging – who knew? Plus I had a neurotic past week deciding to paint my living room the same day as my daughter got a fever. I think it had to do with some tough news I got regarding my mum’s health and so I spent the week in ‘keep busy or your mind will turn you into a blithering idiot’ mode. So regardless I’ve been playing music 24/7 in November for many reasons so I thought I would share my most favourite tunes that have been pretty much on repeat (sorry family).

Music is mandatory for me, it transports me, it inspires me, and sometimes it makes me cry my eyes out (but in a good, sort of, healthy way). I’ll warn you that most of these are folky/moody tunes but they have inspired me to deal with crap, write 45,000 words to date (only a few days of NaNoWriMo left!) and my kids quite enjoy the raver tune :)
