Seasons greetings.

Here we are at the end of another year, each one we pass through brings its own challenges, joys, sorrows and everything in between, but one constant, as ever has been the Fabs, and the joy and comfort their music brings us.

I turn fifty in February, people keep asking me if I’m freaking out about it, I tell them I’m honestly not, because the alternative is pretty shit :-)

Mostly at this time of year I’m reflective, I try to take stock and be thankful, there are too many things to list here, but family, friends (that includes you guys of course) and my love, appreciation and enjoyment of music are at the top of my list of things I cherish, and that I’m so grateful for.

However you spend this season, be kind to yourselves. I wish you all happiness, enlightenment, growth, awareness and lots of music for the new year. Thank you for being there for me during the past twelve months, sometimes it’s a struggle, but your friendship helps buoy me along.

    Hi everyone! I didn’t check the posts these last couple of days and there’s some messages for me! Dear johnny silver, I am just your average Beatle nut – with the difference that I was crazy enough to stay in London (I was only supposed to be there for a few weeks as a birthday gift from my parents) and have the best timing of all: they were recording Pepper when I arrived. Otherwise, I am just a regular mum and grandma: yesterday I spent most of the day helping my daughter pack since she is moving tomorrow, and today is my granddaughter’s 22nd birthday and I am waiting to hear if I’ll be able to see her (busy with her & her husband’s friends). GREAT to know Miss Tammy will be here soon!!!

    Hi Pete F – thanks for posting the link! For some reason I didn’t think about posting it here. Don’t you just love journalists? You talk to them for a long time and they get stuff wrong. They way it was written, it seems I went to London to be an au-pair (??? I was a middle class girl served by maids, why on earth would I move to another country to take care of children and clean toilets?) I WENT TO LONDON TO SEE THE BEATLES. Then he didn’t think it was interesting to point out that I saw all four Beatles THE DAY I ARRIVED. He made it seem like I stood outside EMI for almost a year and finally saw the boys the day of the recording. Still, I’m sure many people who had no idea now have read my story.

  8. Lizzie thanks for your post. You are very cool, I’m amongst many who appreciate your Beatles memories.
