Review of 2012

It was a bit of a memorable year for me - the twins, moving house, an engagement and even a complete change of job role (though still at the same place - probably good to have some constancy).  

So, round up of the year time again but a much more truncated version this year - hopefully back to little bit more time for music and posting next year. I'll also point out about 4 of the lps I've only picked up since seeing them in other charts of the year but again I'll blame that on the kids.

2012: Where did that go?

Sorry for the radiosilence almost all year on here. A couple of little things happened which put music on the back burner a bit for me so here's a round of of the few mixes I did and in the coming days will be a round up of the records I bought.
