Letter #29

Good morning / afternoon / evening everyone,

I hope you’re having a wonderful festive break! This week’s letter is short and sweet, and the music in the tape is made up of my favourite tracks from every letter so far (one per letter). I’d like to say a massive thank you to every single one of you, none of this makes any sense without you. I’d also like to say a big thank you to our guest editors this year, James, Chris, and Tom – thank you!

HERE’S THIS WEEK’S MIXTAPE!

Have a brilliant New Years Eve, and I’ll see you next year ❤️ .

–  🎼 –
There isn’t a ‘TL:DR section…’ this week, as the rambling notes are substantially less rambling, and the music is the handpicked best of from this years letters – in other words, every song is a belter 😃 .

Enjoy!

– ✏️ –
Rather than ramble on about the songs I’ve included, I thought I’d list out a few things that I’ve enjoyed this week (in no particular order). So, here are five things that I’ve loved this year across albums, artists, video, and books.
