2012 17th SNOWFLAkE MAkER albumSongs written in San Francisco
18th SNOWFLAkE MAkER albumSongs written North and South Wales
after both leaving our jobs in london we went on a huge trip and We spent 6 weeks in San Francisco – click on images below for that blog
Then it was time to move to South Wales, whilst still having an apartment in North Wales - boy we do like to travel don't we - the first apartment in Newport was too tiny, so we moved to another one that was like a very very cold fridge - the joy !
On the day we left south wales to be permanently based in north wales they had the worst snow in 30 years in wales. we were trapped in the building and had to get tractor to dig us out - maybe it was a sign
My dad passed away in December 2012. Day of dad’s funeral, was very sad, felt that I lost it at points and the priest/ vicar person really didn’t help with his doom and gloom and over religious zealousness – but it was all awful/ sad, but did enjoy the time in the Applewood farm later, helped along with lots of red wine
tiMEZONE – year long project in 2013 to write one song a month with the flavour of how I feel at that time - i think doing this really helped me get through the year
And voila, we moved to France
I have no idea why I have black teeth in this photo!
