As suspected last week, the HECTIC WEEKEND has pretty much KNACKERED me. Visit by the parents went very nicely, thank you, and then TRAVEL worked out amazingly well, seeing us arriving just before the Birthday Boy at the Surprise Party (we'd got EMBROILED in watching The Other Boat Race on BBC1, which was LOVELY, but had delayed us a bit) and then over to Kentish Town to see The Fighting Cocks, who were GRATE, and then rather delightfully EASING us on to the last Central Line train home. Unfortunately this meant I didn't get to be until well past 1am, and then had to get up at 9am which was really 8am (JET LAG) in order to get over to my Brother's, where we carried two car loads of STUFF down four flights of stairs, round the corner, and then up ANOTHER four flights of stairs.
By the time I finally got home, i was DONE IN. Still, I had got to have a look at Maida Vale (Maida Vale is LOVELY), and at least had sufficient energy left to finish of a NEW SONG! It's called "Not Not For What It Isn't", and is in the Song Blog AND the Annotations. Imagine it as a RHUMBA. It probably won't come out that way, but that's how I've been thinking of it thus far.
