Blogmas: Curl up with me (Songs for Unproductiveness)

It’s one of those grey sunday afternoons. Not quite rainy, not quite sunny, just sort of cold and foggy. There’s a mountain of homework to do, a room to tidy up, a book to read… then there’s looking at the clouds through the window and eating peanuts and the cookies some lovely person brought to work for me yesterday, there’s staring at the ukulele and thinking of all the songs it is hiding underneath its strings, there’s pulling up the blanket, there’s the everpresent fear buried underneath a soft cloud of comfortable faith. There’s all the things that is a lazy sunday afternoon.

I love those afternoons, and I love having some good music in the background. Today I thought I’d share with you my favourite songs for lying on the carpet with a blanket thrown over and the head stuck in a bowl of chocolate hearts.
