Me and G - Memory lane

When we headed to Menorca a few years ago, me and G had our moments!! That said, a (then) 9 year old and her dad's girlfriend were always going to be something of a complex relationship!!

I love G. She (hopefully) loves me. But unlike just being the "parent" this relationship takes work!



Fast forward a few years though, and we are close and solid friends. On holidays you get to really bond and spend quality time together and that is priceless.

Book of the month - Stephen King - Gerald's Game

My book of the month for March is a Stephen King classic - Gerald's game.

Quite an old book this one, published back in 1992. I read it near the time it came out, but decided to revisit it as my memory was that it was good. Crikey is it - not one for the squeamish though. Its one of those that makes your stomach churn at points, and whilst its not action packed as such, the sheer horror of it is mind blowing.

So, it begins with Gerald and wife Jessie heading off to their summer house by the lake. Its well past summer though, and the house and its surroundings are deserted. Not a soul around. Wanting to spice up their sex life, Gerald has bought along a pair of police issue handcuffs and gets to work placing Jessie into them, hooking her up to the bed.

Jessie however, has a sudden change of heart, but at the wrong moment she lashes out and finds herself alone, cuffed to the bed, with Gerald on the floor - dead. As she battles her sanity, and begins to deal with the cramps and pains and thirst, she suddenly realises no one is going to rescue her from her predicament, and that if she is going to live, she has to escape.

Cue a terrifying tale of sheer horror and the ultimate battle for survival. Certainly makes you think!! A book that hasn't aged, Gerald's Game is well worth a read, as relevant today as it was back then.

Highly recommended this one - and the twist that comes in at the end, just when you had put it down to Jessie's overcharged imagination will really unsettle you. Scores a 9 out of 10 this one. Brilliant.

There is also a film of this book, which has been very well done and stays closely loyal to the narrative - also highly recommended and well worth a watch.

Enjoy

Things to do in March

March brings with it Spring. The nights get lighter, the temp gets milder, the birds start to sing and the green shoots start to push through.

March is the perfect month to do some this:

- Spring Cleaning - give your house a top to bottom

- Change your Clocks - Spring Forward an hour

- Get some fresh air - get outdoors and make the most of the nights getting lighter

- Display some spring flowers - daffodils, tulips, narcissus - brighten up your outside

- Open your windows - let some air in

- Turn the heating down - its time to get that thermostat down a notch

- Work up a sweat - it will soon be summer, get your beach body started now

- Get your car valeted - remove the evidence of rainy muddy days and McD wrappers!

- Ditch those woolly jumpers - its not that cold now!

All in all, March is the month to get your house in order, brighten up your world and dust away the winter. Its Spring - make the most of it! :)

My Favourite Words

My favourite words:

The first of my favourite words is this: Haberdashery.

I think this one seems to elicit some memory from childhood, some notion of fabric rolls, sewing patterns, cottons and crafts and good scissors. It makes me think of my nana and my mum. Mum still with me, but nana is long passed, and the word feels like she is with me.

The next of my favourite words is this: Bibliography.

The actual meaning of this is quite bland, but I just love the word. Its basically what you have to put in a book to show where you got your research etc..

My next favourite word is this: Swashbuckling.

Not a word you hear much in modern conversation I grant you, but nevertheless I love this word!! It makes me think of adventures and romance.

My next one is actually a brand but the word is : Swarovski.

Now I know that the sparkles from Austria are very beautiful, and I love them also, but its the word I love too. It some how feels beautiful in your mouth. I love to say it, to pronounce it and somehow it even looks pretty and appealing to me.

For my next word that I love its a foody one: Tagliatelle.

Yes, its pasta. Those long thin ribbons of pasta to be precise. But I love the word, because it sounds what it is - Italian. Unlike other names for pasta, this one  somehow appeals to me.

We Are Off to the Seaside Again

Last year, we headed to North Wales on a very cold day in February. It was our lovely Coco's first experience of the seaside, so this year, on a, hopefully, slightly milder weekend in March we are off once again to North Wales.

We are staying this time for two nights, and its going to be fab. Coco loves to paddle, so we are going to have so much fun with her!

Here are a few shots of us braving the elements last time we were there:




Coco wasn't sure at first but then she got brave and in she went. Then, not wanting to be outdone, me and G took off our shoes and had a very cold paddle in the freezing water ourselves!



Hopefully it might be a little warmer this time around. If not, its still beautiful and so much fun. So excited!

Happy Birthday to Me

It's my birthday today. I am, alas, a year older. A whole year passed by already - now where did that go? I am into my 40's and it feels like no time since my 30's. That said, I have never been happier. I've been richer, I've been thinner, but never happier. I feel fulfilled and lucky in a way I never, in my younger years, fully or indeed at all, appreciated.

I no longer care who likes me and who does not, and yet since such trivial issues ceased to be of concern, offset no doubt by the growing list of aches and pains which by far consume my consciousness these days over and above what shoes match my top, I seem to, confusingly, suddenly have more friends and well wishers than I ever could have wished for. Maybe confidence is more appealing. No idea.

So at this point in my, actually, rather fabulous of late life, I find myself reflecting back on past birthdays, and thinking how lucky I am. I no longer have the insecurity that comes with youth - I know who I am, wrinkles and grey hairs and hairy big toes be damned - they do not matter. I can put on moisturiser, minimise the wrinkles, dye my hair and wax my big toes - to hell with them - they are small fry.

I am healthy. I have good friends, a fabulous albeit slightly bonkers family, am engaged to the love of my life, have an also slightly bonkers amazing furry best friend in the shape of my little staffy Coco, have the best step children you could wish for, one step grandchild and another on the way, a lovely home, a great lifestyle and a getting a bit old but perfectly reliable funky Mini Cooper!! Life is good. Long may it continue.

My New Single of the Week - Sigala featuring Paloma Faith with Lullaby

For my single of the week this week I have chosen the lovely 'Lullaby' by Sigala featuring Paloma Faith.

Up until I chose this song as my new single of the week, I thought Sigala was a) probably female, and b) probably dutch. Not sure why but now I am aware that Sigala is a) male and b) English. So there you go. Sigala is actually Bruce Fielder and he comes from Norfolk. He is a DJ, producer and remixer, and he has done quite a few collaborations, but in my humble opinion, this one is the best yet.

Paloma Faith - full name Paloma Faith Blomfield, is also a UK artist. She has had so many hits over the years, but some of her best work is when she collaborates - this one also, in  my opinion, her best yet.

'Lullaby' is upbeat, dancey, giving a nod to summer but not a full on dance rave fest - more subtle and beautiful and melodic. Co-written by Sigala and Paloma, but also Jess Glynne another fabulous artist, they have managed to produce pop/dance perfection here.

This is a song about love, but its not mushy, just lovely. The lyrics 'Won't you sing me your sweet lullaby?Just the sound of your voice is the thing that I need' are really catchy and beautiful. Paloma's vocals are pitch perfect on this track. I can see this being big in the summer, and sticking around as it just has that lazy sunshine feel to it.

Highly recommended this one. So there we have it my single of the week. If you want more music stuff, just check out My Music page here. Happy listening :)

A Trip Down Memory Lane - My Little Ponies

I was an avid collector of all things My Little Pony when I was a child, among other things. Those other things namely being Star Wars, toy cars, Care Bears, jigsaws and drawing. But it was the horses that had my heart.

Fast forward, and a while back my parents arrived at my home with a large brown cardboard box. To say I was surprised when I opened said box to reveal its contents were none other than a sizeable remnant of my collection!!

I've hung onto them for a while, before finally getting them out of the box to photograph, as I have decided, reluctantly, that someone should enjoy them. I got them out, carefully arranged them, cleaned the ones up who had gotten a tad bit scruffy (its been 35 years folks) and enjoyed being in their company a while.

Then I packed them away, sadly, with fond memories and there they remained again a while before I finally reached the point where I can not subject them to a future in a loft, forgotten and not cherished.

But before I bid them a fond farewell, here is a post to remember them in their glory. Forever in my heart, remembered forever through pictures. Soon to be loved by a new owner, here are my little friends from an innocent age:

First up, here are the Baby Ponies:






Here they are in their very own Lullaby Nursery:





I can't tell you how lovely it felt setting it all up - it was like going back in time. They looked so cute!

I had forgotten how much stuff they had - brushes, toys, a bath, a baby rocker, building blocks, talc, baby bottles, nappies, a baby chair - brilliant. 

Here are the Baby Seahorses:





I had completely forgotten about these cuties. I had three of them, each with their own swim ring. I vaguely remember they also had a shell they once stood in but they are long gone. These guys were designed to go in the bath tub and so they did. Funny how you forget these things. 

Finally, it was the adult Ponies. I had a fair few of those!! Here they are:

My Retro Single of the Week - Kylie - Can't Get You Out of My Head

My retro single of the week is Kylie with her classic 'Can't Get You Out of My Head'.

Can't Get You Out of My Head is probably Kylie's most famous songs. It was released in 2001 and was the lead single from her eighth album Fever.

The most memorable part of this song is the "la la la" which really gets in your head, to the point where you can't get it out of your head either! Presumably, the song is about her lover and not being able to get him out of her head.

Its a dance track with a mid paced and kind of hypnotic beat to it. Kylie sings "la la la" throughout the song in a sort of robotic style. Her voice sounds breathy and beautiful as she obsesses over her desire. "I just can't get you out of my head, boy your loving is all I think about".

The sex appeal in the video matches the sexiness of the song. Lets make no bones about this - Kylie looks smoking. Perfect in fact. Another iconic image is her in that white jumpsuit with the hood. It is very revealing, but because its done so subtly, its sexy not in your face. Think Angelina Jolie not Nicki Minaj!

There are lots of costumes, lots of dance sequences and its just brilliant. Futuristic setting, lots of monochrome. This is a very stylish video. Kylie moves beautifully, and the various outfits are all equally head turning, with the show stopper being that white jumpsuit of course.

Can't Get You Out of My Head was a number 1 hit in the UK singles chart. It was a massive hit pretty much everywhere in fact.

This is one amazing song. Kylie at her absolute best. I love this track. Pure pop genius!
