Happy Valentines Day

Something for everyone this Valentine’s Day. Ones for cuddling up to, ones for dancing around the kitchen and ones for slitting your wrists to if you are on your own. Ultra rare ones for the extrovert and bandcamp freebies for the cheapskates.
It’s not being wined and dinned in Paris but it’s better than 2 for 1 Morrisons takeaway for one.
One or two of ‘our songs’ are included plus one or two I wish were our songs but she says a lot of the stuff I listen to is terrible and I guess a lot people would agree with her.
