I loved the Sophtware Slump but haven’t listened to Grandaddy in ages. I bought this vinyl of last year’s comeback album and it’s lovely. Sadly Kevin García died last year so it may be their last
Up to Birmingham for training session today – was a foggy old day
I’m still on leave so went into town – bought some vinyl & had a cheeky pint
Had my birthday recently – my daughter’s present for me arrived today. It is, of course, ice hockey related. A Devils jersey with Tyson Strachan’s number – he’s our unflappable, assured defender.
We went to Guildford today to see the Devils play – we lost 3-2 in over time.

It’s my birthday soon so I treated myself to a turntable, amp & speakers in the sales. This arrived today and after a bit of faffing I set it up. I’m not really an audio nerd, I don’t have a good ear for fine differences but the quality of this compared to my old cheap turntable which I just plugged into a single speaker is amazing.
Started the year with a road trip to Milton Keynes to see the Devils get their 13th straight win. Was an easy 5-0 victory.
At each Cardiff Devils game we put £1 each in the purse with a score prediction. We’ve been terrible so the pot now stood at £76. With tonight’s 6-3 win over Milton Keynes, I won it finally.
Went to see Cardiff City play Preston North End tonight. It was a pretty dire game, with City losing by a goal scored in the last minute.
