A New Year and a musical compote for one and all. Compote ? It’s a a dish of fruits stewed in a syrup – sounds like the “Full Catastrophe” to me.
In a couple of months it’ll be time to bake a cake and celebrate the 100th TFC, then it’s the Eurovision Song Contest in May and then the Western Bulldogs Premiership Full Catastrophe in September (Some events may change to protect the eternally hopeful).
A big year ahead. Let’s go to the gift shop of tunes Bertina.
