COMING SOON: The Volvo Tractor Song

A couple of years ago, I acquired my very first SUV. And my first Volvo. And my first petrol-engined vehicle for many years. It was an XC40, loaded with extras, and I thought it was one of the best all-round cars I had ever driven. But when it went in for service in October, the car came back very poorly indeed. Four months later, not only have Volvo failed to fix it, but they’re saying I broke it – which is not true.

So I thought I’d write a song about it!

Dear Santa…

Christmas bat and baubles

“And then there’s the Christmas turkey. Why in God’s name do hundreds of millions of people eat this pug-ugly and completely tasteless bird on the same day each year? Why, for instance, don’t we eat penguins? There are millions and millions of them. David Attenborough said so”.
