L I F E | the dog walk

At this time of year I could happily snuggle up on the settee with my frothy coffee and not venture outside for ‘ walkies’ until springtime. It tends to be dark, drizzling, pouring down, blowing a gale, icy, snowing …. or all of them! I begrudingly get ready, muttering swear words under my breath as I do.

Mollie follows my every step , looks at me with those big brown eyes and gives me ‘that‘ look. I melt. I get my boots and coat on and fit her harness . Off we toddle together armed with a bag full of poo bags , treats, hand sanitizer and lipgloss

Just Mollie and I.

Our Mollie .How could you say no to that face

M U S I N G S | 5 favourites

First off hello and how the bloody hell are you? It’s been a while since I posted on here. Too long in fact . Lockdown weirdness/ limbo/ losing my job due to Covid / life in general has left me feeling like I have lots to say … and nothing to say.

So I really hope you are all good . Today I thought I’d continue with a series I started a few months ago but never kept up with . I know I’m so rubbish !!

My 5 favourites – this could be anything that I’ve bought, been gifted, seen or done this month. This could be in way of skincare, a piece of clothing, music, exhibition or TV programme. Anything goes basically…

Music was my first love…

Today I thought I’d talk about one of my greatest loves…

No not cake … though that’s right up there

Music

[This was first posted in January last year, I’ve tweaked it slightly and pressed republish. Some posts deserve a second airing.]

To coin a phrase music … was my first love and it will [no doubt] be my last. I don’t care what you say music can evoke special memories, resort you to tears, make you smile or send you into a spontaneous dance.

Hey … some of us even sit and record ourselves singing in the car over on instagram stories!!

Music can make or break a ‘moment’ in a film , or come to think of it real life.

Take for example Psycho and the famous shower scene … it wouldn’t be quite the same with the ‘shoop shoop’ song playing along cheerily in the background now would it?

The Mr and I both share a love of music and we were talking earlier about the songs we would play for a certain situation i.e your happy , or your sad song. I’ve already mentioned  the songs that make up the soundtrack of my life over on Meet Tracey & Liz [go have a read afterwards]

This was just a bit of fun with the Mr firing questions at me and these were the first responses I flung back.

I thought I’d share them with you… [as I’m typing no doubt more songs will keep popping into my head – so many songs, so many memories !] Continue reading
