My Music Replay 2022

Apple Music Replay is a vast improvement on last year. I grabbed some of the data so I have a record of it (I have no idea if you can access a previous years data or not).

No suprises Hamilton is top again with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Leslie Odom, Jr. taking 2 of the top artist spots. Combined, they take the real top spot.

I was in the top 100 listeners for Punk Rock Factory and Goldfinger.

On the bright side, we have a new back door ready for a cat flap to be installed so I can stop being a doorman for the little princes 🐱👑


I was hit by a cyclist while walking to work yesterday (I was on the pavement), completely floored me. Knee is hurting like all hell today.

Dear cyclist: 🖕

That freezeframe at the end is ridiculous.


My mother-in-law made us an advent calendar of things we’ll need for when the baby gets here 👶


And relax 🎄


Someone (me) didn’t measure properly before ordering these cupboards so the poor door had to lose a corner.
