summer songs

Even though Summer isn't over just yet, I though I would do a post that includes some of the songs that I've been loving and listening to so far.

Tiny Vessels - Death Cab For Cutie
Death Cab For Cutie are my favourite band and Tom and I listened to them a lot on our holiday. This song is one of my favourites by them.

Closing Time - Semisonic
When I was in Cuba the television in our room only had a few channels that were in our language and one of them showed the film Friends With Benefits every so often and this song is featured in it. It's so catchy!

The Man's Machine - Jamie T
I've always kinds of overlooked this song when listening to the album that it's from but I've really been enjoying it over the past few weeks. I saw Jamie T play in Birmingham a year or so ago and I would love to see him again.

Call Your Girlfriend - Erato
This cover of Robyn's song is just AMAZING! I have tried to convince Tom to try and learn it with some empty tubs of Clover but he pretty much refused. 

Isabel - Frank Turner
I am absolutely gutted that I wasn't able to get tickets to see Frank Turner when he plays in Liverpool later this year, but at the time Tom was unsure as to whether he would be studying in Copenhagen or not so we decided to just wait and before we knew it they had sold out of tickets everywhere. Hopefully we'll be able to snag some last minute from somewhere.

Give these songs a listen, they're great!!!

holiday snaps

It's been about a month since I've posted on here and I can only apologise that this post contains even more photographs from my holiday in Cornwall!! I bought the disposable camera from B&M Bargains last minute and I didn't have much hope that the photo's would turn out that well but most of them did (despite a few of them featuring our thumbs!!).

I have actually just got back from a holiday with my family so I'll be writing about that soon. We got home on Friday morning and since then I've just been enjoying being back home and this glorious weather that we are currently experiencing! 

Whilst I was on holiday I read Atonement by Ian McEwan and I think I shall watch the film adaptation of it tonight, despite finding Keira Knightly a bit irritating! I also read One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey and I also ordered it on DVD and I can't wait to watch it! I'm going to wait and watch it with Tom though when he get's back from his holiday. Our holiday's overlapped and I've not seen him for three weeks, he gets back on Thursday and I am beyond excited to see him!!
