    25 Festive Numbers from the Bungalow - download and play along!

    Season’s Greetings from the Bungalow!


    After such a cracker of a year here at the Bungalow, we wanted to share some original Christmas cheer with our readers and followers! We so enjoyed our yuletide poetry last year that it would have been quite remiss not to have a reprise this year... And, being ones for traditional values, classic tunes and crafty wordplay... we'd like to invite you to have a go at our very own Crossword of 25 Festive Numbers that we've created especially for you this Christmas!

    With a few seasonal verses by way of introduction, our PDF download should provide much musical merriment. We've had great fun listing to our (somewhat extensive!) library of Christmas tunes, selecting favourites old and new, and devising a good mix of clues both quick and cryptic. If you get stuck, there’s a tracklist of hints which we'll release closer to Christmas — but watch out... two of them are red herrings... extra points if you catch them out!

    So download your copy of 25 Festive Numbers... grab yourself a mince pie and some mulled wine... and get sleuthing! We’ll be posting the solution here on our blog on New Year’s Day, and would love it if you'd stop by and add a comment to let us know how you got on!

    Wishing you all the merriest of Christmasses, and a truly crackerjack New Year! Scott and David

    A rare and special day: an opportunity to tickle the ivories and trip the shutter!  After the concerted efforts of the past few months in getting our website finished, downtime has been an elusive luxury and we both welcomed the opportunity to clear out creative cobwebs!

    Fingers were a little rusty, admittedly, and Addinsell's Warsaw Concerto (the theme to the 1941 film 'Dangerous Moonlight'... later renamed 'Suicide Squadron') took some flak.  The Polish theme continued with run-throughs of some favourite Chopin gems: the last movement of the B minor Sonata, his 1st and 3rd Ballades and the infamous A-flat 'Heroic' Polonaise. 

    All credit to David for some cracking shots too - a more picture-perfect than note-perfect afternoon, granted...  but great fun, a different kind of creative collaboration... and a stern reminder to practise, practise, practise!
