1st of November Blog update

Holy crap, November is here! Lets just take a minute to digest that… The above picture is from Dublin on the last day of October (yesterday) taken by yours truly 🙂

Oh yeah, how about a song? This is from my first album and this live version was recorded last year during a crazy few days when I turned my kitchen into a small video studio 😀 So let’s start with “November”

So what do you think? Well, did you see the well over 3000 views? That’s freaking awesome!!!

This has been a crazy week! But mainly good crazy. Started the week in Warsaw, in Peter and Wiola’s beautiful new apartment (thank you guys once again for your amazing hospitality,) playing with their younger daughter as it seemed the best way to put off the inevitable packing. But by the end of Monday I was back in Dublin munching take away pizza.

Between then and now I posted another 13 blog posts (This is number 14!), I wrote, recorded and posted a new song, released another album… So as you can see, it’s been busy.

So lets look what this week has taught me:

  1. Sometimes I kick my self undeservedly… There’s a full blog post about the subject, so I won’t get more in to it here.
  2. Fish oil capsules (those clear yellow ones) do not blend well in a smoothie…
  3. I need a better blender…
  4. How excited I am about something and willing to share my excitement, the more other people get excited about it.
  5. Sometimes, just sometimes with the closest of my loved ones I just need to go with the flow and not be the stubborn J.P. I can be from time to time.

And in more detail, here is what got posted on my blog this week. It’s a lot, so get yourself a hot cup of your favourite beverage and dive in:
