Giggles – Mon 1st Sept 2014 #MusicMonday

By | September 1, 2014

The first of September today, D full of smiles because “it’s Daddy’s birthday month”, she’s anticipating events more and more which is fantastic. We had years of birthdays and Christmas meaning absolutely nothing, apart from the shiny wrapping paper. Both T and D have been on good form today, no doubt the shops were absolutely […]

Change Your Mind #MusicMonday

By | August 11, 2014

Today’s Music Monday is one that I hadn’t heard in absolutely yonks. I was watching TOTP2 with Hubbie recently, I say watching, I was ignoring the disco-pop type songs and receiving a running commentary on songs bought and danced/snogged to, those were the days eh? Anyway, Gary Numan came on with Cars – which is […]

Life In One Day #MusicMonday

By | June 23, 2014

In the run up to the BritMums Brilliance In Blogging awards, which were at the end of BritMums Live day one on Friday, I got very nervous. Would my outfit be okay? Would I see anyone I “knew” from blogging? What if no one wanted to talk to me? Typical thoughts from insecure me going […]

Truly Madly Deeply #MusicMonday

By | June 2, 2014

A bit of a blast from the past for today’s Music Monday. One of the joys of having songs on shuffle is that one will come on and I’ll instantly be transported back to another time. This is one such song: Truly Madly Deeply by Savage Garden (click to view), when Hubbie and I got […]

The Spotty Headband #MusicMonday #WhatsTheStory

By | May 26, 2014

D is rather partial to headbands, tiaras, ribbons, clips in her hair, anything girlie. For me they’re a useful “get that fringe out of the way too”. They all very used at school to seeing D bounce in in the mornings looking a bit like a circa-1980’s Madonna with her leggings, tutu skirts, bracelets and […]

The Concert #MagicMoments #WhatsTheStory

By | May 18, 2014

When I was growing up “in the olden days” as D refers to them (ha! bless her) there wasn’t the music channels or access to music artists that there is now. There was one music show a week – Top Of The Pops – and a few magazines. I always used to buy Smash Hits, […]

You Take Me Up – Thompson Twins #MusicMonday

By | January 13, 2014

This week’s Music Monday is for Hubbie, aka Mr Bluecrisps. He’s going to work in the dark and returning in the same, juggling family life with his commitments as a football coach and grieving too. The monotony of get up-go to work gets to him at times, especially when customers change their minds about paint […]

Merry Christmas Everyone #MusicMonday

By | December 23, 2013

Today’s Music Monday is a festive favourite in our house. I wouldn’t want to listen to it in any month apart from December, it is cheese with a capital “C”. I was watching the Christmas TOTP2 last night and there were tweets flying around that Noddie Holder makes £800k every year from plays of the […]

A new take on “A Little Respect”

By | December 13, 2013

“A Little Respect” by Erasure is one of my favourite songs, it’s been my wake-up song on my alarm for a while now and I never get fed up of hearing it. Click here to watch the official video (once you get past the advert at the start). I taped the Royal Variety Performance on […]
