Well. That’s it then. After all this dawdling, dithering and general dilly-dallying, my hand has now been forced. Yep, I’ve finally recorded one of my songs and posted it on my blog. Well, what’s a few weeks wait between friends? But hey – don’t get too excited until you hear it!

So without any further ado (or dilly-dallying for that matter) here it is:-
