This week has been a bit of a mixed week for me, it got off to a bit of a false start thanks to Heather forgetting that public transport in Shropshire is nowhere near as efficient as it down the smoke, meaning her arrival in Telford was an hour later then planned.

A song about the Devil that's about something spooky.... Maybe not exactly spooky but both about the Devil.
