I’m just back from three weeks in Thailand, yes tough stuff I know. My lovely friends Tim & Keti got married on the beach in Koh Chang at sunset, sigh, so beautiful. Anyway, here I am back with you all.

Thought tonight I would take a wee trip down memory lane, to 1996 in fact.  Thank goodness my music taste has progressed from my two favourite albums of 1996 – No Doubt Tragic Kingdom . . . and Spice Girls Spice. Oh yes. But hey, I was 11 years  old ok??

So, I hope you enjoyed my wee compilation of tunes released in 1996
