Summer storms

It has been playing around for the last 48 hours, trying to get started but failed. Then finally it broke the heat wave that have been around for the last few weeks and gave us a good old summers thunder-storm. Not only does the plants need a drop of a water, we too could use […]

Shopping

Necessary evils that is shopping. Yes I can go online and get it delivered. But sometimes you do need it now. My main pet hate with supermarkets is that they change their layout or move products around. So have to go up and down the aisles or worse ask for directions! See full screen

Chimes

Got a bit of a love hate relationship with these things. While I really do like walking through town or market while these chime away. I just can’t have them in a neighbours garden. Funny thing is that I can fall asleep anywhere that got a noisy background, but these things … See full screen

While driving in Scotland, the music player played a track at random. I got tonnes of tracks, of random best off and mixes etc, that I often never listen too and/or remember I got. Then a track tickled my grey cells and and after some digging about on youtube today, I found a track that […]

Are you up?

Was moaning a bit when our dog woke me up at 4:40am for a nature call. Couldn’t really get angry with her, as I got to hear and see this, even though my bed was calling.

A sound story

A sound story

Today I heard three noises from outside, in a row that made a story. Yes, it is wild, crazy and utterly random, so bear with me. The idea is to write a story, as random as it can be, with the sound of the last three things you hear in your surroundings. On the radio, […]

Major Tom

I was never the biggest fan of David Bowie. I did have a best off that got played now and again, which I enjoyed. Over the years I heard more of his music via friends who where bigger fans than I ever was. So his music was part of my youth growing up, but I […]

Noisy wake up call

We were cycling the Queen Charlotte trail in NZ. Every morning we got woken up to this. Kicked off at about 3:30am and by 4:15am it was at a fever pitch, with no chance of falling back asleep. Some of them sounded like a mobile phone’s ring tone. At about 6am the raucous erm dawn […]

Rain

One of the best things in life. Is to lay in your tent, all snugged up in your sleeping bag, reading a book or having a little snooze. With the sound of gentle rain on the tent. Feels great knowing you are in the elements but you are not getting wet. See full screen
