Still a bit nonstop but we’re getting there

It’s been a busy week for me with work and my wee trip to Edinburgh. Some work things now coming in for next week but I’m really hoping to get the last of my pre-Christmas TechUp modules done as well!

In the meantime, though, I’m looking forward to a quiet-ish weekend. Geth and I are volunteering at parkrun tomorrow (doing a new role!) and then possibly doing a run outside once we’re back, but after that I will be getting my weekend hibernation on.

Computer book
Dad found me another old computer book! This one belonged to Grandad and came out in 1984, so it’s an interesting historical read.

This week’s earworm playlists:


The Monkees – ‘Daydream Believer’
EMF – ‘Unbelievable’
Blondie – ‘Rapture’
Eartha Kitt – ‘Santa Baby’

And a bonus track that Geth was humming that day:

Mike Oldfield – ‘Moonlight Shadow’


Cast of Yanomamo! – ‘Burn Them Trees’*
Cast of Yanomamo! – ‘Forest People’
Cast of Yanomamo! – ‘The Jaguar’
Amilcare Ponchielli – ‘Dance Of The Hours’
The Beatles – ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’


911 – ‘Party People… Friday Night’
Duran Duran – ‘Is There Something I Should Know?’


The Carpenters – ‘Rainy Days And Mondays’
Marvin Gaye and Kim Weston – ‘It Takes Two’
Perry Como – ‘It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas’


Geraldine McQueen – ‘Once Upon A Christmas Song’


Eartha Kitt – ‘Santa Baby’


Sia – ‘Cheap Thrills’
Chris Isaak – ‘Wicked Game’
Cream – ‘White Room’
Mika – ‘Grace Kelly’

*The Yanomamo! tracks were a bit of a flashback to a primary school performance. Apparently there was also a TV version shown in 1988, which I need to track down.
