beats, bruises, and five pound notes on a fri/sat-day combo

Yesterday was the first ever time I could say, with both truth and dignity, I AM MAKING SOME BEATS y’all. One of my 2013 ‘could do it’ listings is “…make a rap track…”. So I was very excited when my lovely friend and super awesome music producer Ant was on for a collaboration. Yesterday we spent a couple of hours in his studio where he made beats and I wrote words to sit on them. Now I’ve just got to practice my rapping technique and keep writing. WATCH this space, it’s all very exciting.
Then after leaving Ant I was in a bit of a rush to sort out a new adventure when I came off my bike. I flew over the handlebars and my left side of my body is pretty bruised and battered but I just wanted to saw a massive BLOG thank you to the lovely Canadian passer by, called Cathie, who stopped, helped and waited for the ambulance with me…. you are awesome.
Lastly this morning whilst walking around on another little mission I found a £5 note. I felt like it was the universe saying ‘hey don’t worry’.
So I guess, however you’re feeling today, I’d say write down a little ‘could do’, do it, and see what seeds grow.
lots of love
