Music for peaceful nights

So my is now six weeks old and like me, doesn't really sleep at night. To enable Jess to get some sleep I've been watching him into the early hours, doing the feeds and the nappy changes. We tried it the other way, going to bed together and alternating who gets up when he screams, but it didn't work because we both sleep heavily.
With me taking the 9pm-2am shift and Jess half sleeping half tending through the rest of the night, we both manage to get some rest.
Anyhow, to help him sleep, I've been playing different music. Some helps him sleep, some just makes him smile. Well it's either a smile or gas...... Here are a few of his favourites and mine.

(1) Chris Wood - atheist spiritual - Come Down Jehovah
(2) Chris Wood - The Cottager's Reply
(3) Kate Rusby - My Young Man
(4) Kate Rusby - Who Will Sing Me Lullabies
(5) Paul Simon I know what I know
(6) South Africa - Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Homeless
Now in Wolverhampton.....

Well, we've moved house and now we're living in Wolverhampton.
We're paying more than we did in Stoke, but now we don't have a leaky roof, mould on the furniture or so many hills.
Our landlords were kind enough to make themselves known to us the other day. This is nice, a marked contrast to the landlords we've had in the past.
Our new baby is doing well. As I type this he's sat in his bouncy chair studying me intently.
Our two older have joined their new school. It has a lot more to offer than their previous school in Stoke. Ofsted reports rated it good and praised the diversity and commitment of staff. The old school only got a satisfactory rating....with a note that the were not being pushed hard enough.
More moving

Well, regular readers will recall that I said we were planning a move to Wales. Well thanks to a pretty uncooperative rental agency we've been forced to abandon that idea. Instead we've started a return to Wolverhampton.
We've found a place to rent near some good schools and shops. It's a town I love.
Adverts that make me mute and change channel

The following are a few of the stinkers that irritate me to the point of rage and distraction.

(1) The Dell advert....Lollypop Lollypop....blah blah blah...mute!
(2) Go Compare......the phat fuck that sings in that advert needs a good beating. If you're in the states and have never been subjected to this particular advert then you can go see it on you tube.
(3) Compare the market..... cute adverts the first time around. Rubbish ever after.
(4) The National Accident Helpline adverts. They feature a number of different fools who had an accident that they could have avoided but blamed on an employer. Ambulance chasers
(5) The T mobile adverts.
(6) Injury Lawyers 4 u the dude on this advert gives me that uncomfortable feeling I get when ever I talk to a known criminal.
(7) E harmony adverts. Liars matched by their responses in questionnaires. Each trying to get what they couldn't find on other dating sites.
( A touch of grey..... OK so this one isn't on that often. The one where two daughters hand a guy the box of hair dye and suggest it's time to dye his hair and start dating. So depressing I just want to kick the tv.

OK, rant over for now......
Happy News

My love Jess gave birth yesterday to our new Sebastian. He was 10lbs 4oz. Mother and baby doing really well.
We're all so proud and so tired.
On the move again......

Yes, we're on the move again.
Jess and I are planning to move from sunny Stoke on Trent in six weeks or so. We'll be moving to south Wales, somewhere close to Swansea or Cardiff. The countryside is so pretty down there.
We'll be closer to the seaside too. More sunshine.
Really nice cycling country.
I long for it.
Most of my happiest childhood memories, are of holidays in south Wales. Long walks in the countryside. Long hot summers and days on the beach.

I can't speak Welsh, but I'm optimistic that the will be able to learn some in the Welsh schools. Beats the education in Stoke so I'm told.

The picture is from a day trip we took to Rhyl, which is in North Wales. Pretty, clean and very cold off-season.
Rising fuel prices makes meetings harder

Here in the UK Petrol is one pound twenty pence per litre....darn, that's Five pounds and 46 pence per gallon or a plump $8.30 per gallon if you're in the US.

I don't begrudge the rise though. The taxes pay for services.
Many different projects

At the moment Jess and I are on birth-watch. The big day could be any day.....unless the hospital consultant decides a C-section is in order.
To take my mind off the many things that could go wrong, I've come up with a list of things to do as long as my arms and I'm working my way through them.
One of those things was to make two violins and a bow. Tick....done!
Sell stuff on ebay
Read several books that I've been meaning to read for years.
Complete several art projects that have been lingering on the to-do list since last year.
Sort out a move to south Wales, somewhere in the Cardiff or Swansea area.
Clean the mould off the perpetually damp walls in our current rental and pack for the move.

And so on and so forth.....
Cased again.....

Hmmmm well that was suspicious.
Back in good ol' Texas.....our house in the ghetto was cased by local crooks on a number of occasions.
Typically they'd turn up pretending to be looking for their dog, a that they'd let run loose on purpose.
I guess this gave them an excuse to sneak a closer look at houses they were planning to break into.

We keep getting visits from folks with low IQ's. Folks asking for different people who may or may not have lived in our home before we rented it. This time it was a scrawny dude with a face like a Toby jug, asking for someone called Claire. He was rolling a very suspicious looking joint as I answered the door the first time..... Then minutes later he knocked the door again.
We often see people hanging around, sometimes knocking the door, sometimes not.

I will be glad to see the back of this town.
Buying things that are too big for me.

Well Jess and I went mad and bought a piece of furniture on Ebay.
It was a bargain and only has a bit of repairable surface damage. However when I attempted to collect it with our little Fiat Punto I discovered that it would not fit in one piece.
I took the drawers and then returned yesterday with my tools so that I could dismantle it.
Taking it apart at 6pm in the rain outside the seller's house wasn't fun, but with a few choice thumps and twists with a pry bar, it all came apart.
Once home, it took me the rest of the evening to re-build it.
Small violin, testing a method

This is a picture of the small violin that I made for my .
As with the larger one that I made previously, the instrument is fully working and rendered in glass fibre resin over a wire frame.
The Second Violin
Posted:Mar 11, 2010 5:01 pm
Last Updated:Jul 4, 2022 1:34 am

Well, the last few days have been busy.
I've been making a second violin because the first one I made was a full size violin and far too big for my who needs a 1/4 size instrument.
Learning from the first instrument I've made the second one in fibre glass over wire. This time I've made refinements to the design that will make it louder, lighter and easier to tune.
I've also eliminated the need for a bridge from the local music shop. The last bridge I purchased was from someone in Canada and it took five weeks to clear the customs.
This time I've just bitten the bullet and made the bridge from more steel and fibre glass.
When the paint job is complete I'll post a picture of it.
Dental work

I have had dental work today.
The last few weeks have been unpleasant. An old crowned molar on my upper set had developed some decay. The rot had tracked back into my sinuses. The result was massively infected sinuses and several weeks of the smell and taste of decomposition in my face.
Not fun.
I asked my dentist to remove the crown and hopefully go some way towards curing the infection.
Well the crown came away and then just one of three roots.
I hardly felt a thing. My dentist is a total star, as are all the other dentists who work for the practice.
I'm now on antibiotics to bring down the infection and the dentist is referring me to the dental hospital for further work. She had to give up removing the roots because they're so far into the bone, and they could have been pushed up into the sinuses. That would have sent me to a whole new level of sinus pain hell.
