Random thoughts on 2018

December 31, 2018

2018 is coming to an end and, as I am not spending the festivities a I had planned, I have decided to write down a few random thoughts on the year gone by.

The music was magnificent. From Celtic Connections to Oban Live to Ceol Cholasa and the phenomenal First Aid Kit it has been a memorable year. Ciaran O’Kane’s album was my favourite of the year but it topped a list of absolutely great albums. Not forgetting the emergence of Peat and Diesel as a new and very entertaining band.

Other memorable moments include another spectacular Carluke party, meeting up with Lindsey after all these years, getting back into photography and getting started on Album reviewing.

Other random events spring to mind: Discovering that Whisky can be used as nail varnish remover which saved me from going into work with red and yellow nails.

Agreeing to help a young German volunteer to understand anything she might have difficulty with during a game of Card Against Humanity and the first two things I had to explain were Gary Glitter and Jim’ll Fix It.

Possibly most memorable of all (and definitely the most random) was a certain festival organiser doing a wonderful impression of Theresa May running through a wheat field.

It has been a generally enjoyable year and here’s to another cracker in 2019!
