Follow Your Heart #TheMMLinky

By | January 8, 2018

Welcome to The MM Linky and Happy New Year! It’s my turn to host this week and I must admit I was struggling for a topic but, inspiration came in a music FB group that I help to admin. The chat in a thread turned to an Ultravox album that hadn’t been seen as one […]

Maths with D – Mon 15th Aug 2016

By | August 15, 2016

The sleep fairy didn’t visit me again last night, blooming thing! Whether it’s because my brain knows that my operation appeal is being heard this week or not, I don’t know. Anyway, it’s quite difficult to be all upbeat albeit with a calm persona – as the children expect – when all you want to […]

Music Monday – David Bowie

By | January 11, 2016

There isn’t much I can add to the tributes for David Bowie.  I tweeted today that the words “legend” and “inspiration” are used too loosely these days but they describe Mr Bowie perfectly. How to choose just one song for today? Hubbie remembers the chameleon-like changes and tunes of the Seventies, I was an Eighties […]

Walking – Mon 19th Oct 2015

By | October 19, 2015

I set myself a challenge today, to walk to T’s school and back.  According to google maps, it was a 13 mile round trip.   A chance to see how long it would take and realise that, if I did get a marathon place next year (don’t know yet), then it would be twice that […]

Understanding – Mon 28th Sept 2015

By | September 28, 2015

I’ve had guilty mum syndrome today, in bucket loads.   Why? Well, D woke up with earache in one ear today.  It could be down to a number of things – it was quite breezy on the fun day field yesterday or maybe she’d slept awkwardly on it or perhaps it was a spot or […]

Woolly – Mon 17th Aug 2015

By | August 17, 2015

Today didn’t start well, in fact most of today has been pretty rubbish really.   Once I’ve blogged it out, you’ll probably think “silly J, with her 1st World problems” and they are (’tis true) but it’s felt a bit non-stop. Where to start …. D woke up crying today, early and upset because our […]

A Music Monday – 10th Aug 2015

By | August 10, 2015

It’s been a day full of humming and whistling for D, another cuddly one too. I haven’t posted a Music Monday for ages, so, in the spirit of our tune-filled day, thought I would today. The song above – One Man In My Heart by The Human League – I don’t remember hearing much of […]

Let’s Dance – Mon 13th April 2015

By | April 13, 2015

There’s two things I miss when T and D are off school: The first is a coffee, sometimes with a magazine, sometimes without, but just me and my thoughts.  I always was a bit of a (ready?) “massimo decaf skinny mocha in a takeaway cup” fiend and seem to have gone right off instant coffee […]

Answers To Nothing

By | January 12, 2015

This song might be an oldie (it is, in relative terms) but something that still resonates today and probably always will. The song tells of conflict and tension within Society, which will always exist whilst we all have different ideas and beliefs, – which is a positive (the element of Free Speech) – but results […]

Life Is What You Make It – #MusicMonday

By | January 5, 2015

I haven’t put a Music Monday up for a while, primarily because I couldn’t “grab” the embed code from an apple product. Hopefully this will work. My song for today – if not the whole of 2015 and beyond – is “Life Is What You Make It”. The video with its creepy crawlies is good […]
