Yes, it’s back too. I couldn’t think of a better way for me to ease back into the habit of writing frequently than by resurrecting one of my favourite¬†features: Tunesday!

Today I’m sticking close to home and doing what I can for a local band that I have an extreme playlist crush on. They’re a trio called Fatherson and, as far as I know, they’re Kilmarnock born and bred. So much the better for us, or do I have to remind you all of the benefits of an audible Scottish accent?

As for who they are off stage, I have no idea, never having met them myself. On stage they are refreshing, energetic and just plain fun.

If I had my way I would showcase all of their songs that I know, but I will stick to the format and narrow it down. Because I have to. Expect to see more from them, especially around their upcoming hometown gig at The Grand Hall.

The Band: Fatherson

The Song: First Born

So, that’s Fatherson. And, as an added bonus, lots of Glasgow in the background!

Like I said, there’s more to come from me on this topic, I just wanted to get Tunesday off to a running start. Look them up. They may be local now, but they’ll be global soon.

It’s been too long.

I don’t have any excuses. Except to say that I’m sorry, and I can only try harder in future.

To say that the past few months have been full of fun and games would be untrue, although they have been eventful. Some good news, some mediocre and some not very nice at all, but we’ll get to that.

I’ve missed writing about Christmas and Thanksgiving, two of my favourite times of year, as you well know. My Mom was here for three Weeks and we went to Paris. It was unforgettable.

I will get you caught up, just give me some time, and as long as I don’t have to spend loads of time in the hospital again, it shouldn’t be too much trouble.

Wish me luck.
