First frost & Christmas vinyl

Monday, November 06, 2017


I woke up to frost this morning. First sign of it this month. I know the Peaks and the Lakes and such have already had some but it's finally reached the dips and slumps of Nottinghamshire. I got a bit excited and toddled off outside in my pyjamas to take some photos - it was refreshingly cold, and I kind of loved it. Looking forward to more chilly mornings.

The postie had a fun delivery for me this morning...

Now That's What I Call Music! The Christmas Album. Find more Xmas gems on eBay.

I've been eyeing up this album for weeks, and after failing to find it cheap and second-hand I bit the bullet and bought it brand new. I didn't fork out too much, which my purse is really thankful for. Turns out there aren't many decent Christmas compilations on vinyl out there, especially ones under £15, which I can understand. It's a bit of a niche item, but I'm so glad I finally got my hands on this. I've given it a listen and I'm 100% in the festive spirit now. There's no going back.

I've also been listening to the absolute classic Now That's What I Call Christmas 2012, which my mum and I have on repeat every year, and A Very She & Him Christmas. I have yet to bust out A Jolly Christmas From Frank Sinatra and my all-time favourite, I Believe in Father Christmas by Greg Lake which I have on 7" vinyl (nerd).

And lastly, I gave my iPad and iPhone an early festive/wintry makeover because I am that person.

The starry wallpaper is from Pinterest and the 'Peace on Earth' one is from Perennial Joy.

Hope you guys have a great week ahead of you.
