Last night I put some music on my phone for the first time in years. A selection of my favourite albums from my young adult life, to get me through the winter, and to stop me frantically searching through Spotify or Soundcloud on my walk to work. Amongst the chosen few, what I was reminded is surely one of my top ten albums: No Wow by The Kills. I discovered this band with my (still) best (but now 10,497 miles away) friend at Reading Festival in 2005. It was love at first sight. The coolest, the darkest, the best. Ten years on and I feel exactly the same as I did back then.
On Friday two of my dearest friends got married in the beautiful English countryside. The forecasted rain stayed away and we celebrated in glorious sunshine. Congratulations Liz and
Martin, and thank you for a perfect day!
