Head spin

Good Grief! I just sold my house. Well, I have accepted an offer. It took two weeks, from deciding to sell to slapping some paint about, shoving everything in a cupboard, and getting an agent round. Two weeks ago my house smelled of dog and cigarettes. Now it smells of expensive room fragrance and I can't find anything. We haven't got anywhere to go...although we have our hearts set on a place already under offer. Perhaps we will end up in the van and will be proper pikeys at last.

Bob Dylan's new album

Is fantastic. Here's the first track He sounds like Tom Waits these days and is still a top story teller. The Tempest is a wander through American music: blues, rock and roll, ballads and even a track that could be Motown. It's funny and catchy and bleak and clearly the man and his band have it coming out of every pore....
