    Missing Patti's arrival
    New job, new day off. No more stay-up-late Sundays and lie-in Mondays; I'm going for a later-in-the-week break from now on. Advantages should include being able to deal with the stuff in my head from a Sunday on a workday in future, and avoiding the disappointment of Mondays being closed days for all sorts of visitor attractions around the country. I'll be able to browse The Tate shop at leisure and get to Preston's National Football Museum at last.

    I'm hopeful there will be few disadvantages to this day-off swop; but I am aware that Mondays are the day that record shops take delivery of new stock... so I'm feeling just a slight sadness tonight, having thumbed through The Wire, that I shall miss the fresh arrival of the new Patti Smith cd Gone Again and the fun of browsing Probe Records for other newly-desirables such as Squarepusher's Ultravisitor (missed him live at Liverpool Philharmonic last night, doh) and some fine guitarist fellah I've just read about called Jack Rose. Still, consider it a lenten discipline - for one week only - putting off cd spending till Thursday...
