Yann Tierson piano music on Youtube, I tried radio etc but I just get distracted.
I've finished first draft of 28 today but need to proof read and add more fluffiness because mine sound a bit harsh at the moment. shock

I put Gilmore Girls on. I know them all off by heart but still love them.

Done and proof read all 28!
So glad I proof read there were some pretty shocking errors!

One bottle of Prosecco and a third of them gone! Magic!
