She’s alright #30

img_20181115_2145242402900402207572387.jpg

I am so comfortable in my own skin, just being me, that I often forget that I’m a “very kinky girl” and I can’t remember the last time I was “taken home to mama”. Sometimes I’m reminded when I open my mouth and say something that seems normal to me, and yet shocks others. Or they tell me something they are embarrassed about and I am not in the least bit surprised! And then there are my friends who I think of as being extreme who seem genuinely shocked (and excited) by my level of interests… So it seems only fitting that Superfreak by Rick James pops into my head here.

I love music and am always on the lookout for something new to listen to, so I hope the 30-Day Song Challenge inspires some of you to share.

A Sinful Tease

imag28128354695999189486242.jpg

While trawling through my albums for my #Boobday entry I stumbled across this image, taken for a friend of mine because, well, I’m an occasional tease.

With all of the over-indulgence of Christmas and the approaching new year celebrations I thought this was a fitting, low key image for this week’s Sinful Sunday.

I have definitely sprinkled more than a few songs I remember from my childhood in these posts, but I have chosen The Bangles – Walk Like an Egyptian for today. It reminds me of walking with my family while busting the moves from the song, not being in the least bit bothered about the people around us. I see a little of me in my youngest, when I watch him strutting his stuff on the school run, dancing to whatever riff he has spinning through his mind at the time.

I love music and am always on the lookout for something new to listen to, so I hope the 30-Day Song Challenge inspires some of you to share.

Your voice is my favourite sound. #28

Beth Gibbons of Portishead has one of the most hauntingly beautiful voices I have ever heard. A small and seemingly fragile voice which packs such a punch, she is quite uniquely gifted. It should be played loud, but only to drown out my efforts to sing along, and it is also one of those tunes from my formative years, but I choose Portishead’s Glorybox, for the song by an artist whose voice I love. The music is the perfect frame for her vocals. Perfection!

Your library is your paradise

Bookish Boobday

A pre-Christmas trip to the library reminded me of this picture.

With a moment’s peace I flicked through the albums of my phone to share for this weeks #Boobday and my first Scavenger hunt entry in a long time. This goes back to much earlier in the year, and a task. I had planned to visit the library and take this picture, but what I hadn’t counted on was the number of CCTV cameras in the local history section.

I can still remember how much I was absolutely buzzing after taking this picture.

The heart was made to be broken #27

I love opera! There, I said it. When I was growing up I had a preconceived idea of the typical opera lover.

And then I went to see my first at 18. It was The Elixir of Love, an English opera shown at the Lowry. I was blown away by the roller coaster of emotions I experienced through the power of voice. A few years later I sloped off to a traditional opera. Even in Italian it still conveyed the emotions of the story, I could follow it completely without the faintest idea what the words were. Over the years I have taken myself off to th e theatre occasionally. The stand out performance for me was La Boheme by the Garden Opera company. I laughed and cried, gasped and blushed (as appropriate) through the entire performance. But the final scene, Mimi’s death scene  broke my heart. The video from YouTube is never going to convey the effects of the waves of voices which caress your soul, so I will forgive you if you don’t feel it. However, I would urge you to go and find an opera near you. To sit and absorb the energy. And just see… You may just be surprised.

I love music and am always on the lookout for something new to listen to, so I hope the 30-Day Song Challenge inspires some of you to share.

No one ever fell in love without being a little bit brave. #26

The prompt for today was pretty tricky. I wasn’t sure how a song could make me want to fall in love. My ex husband’s family never quite hit the mark of family, even though we were closely linked for over 12 years. The thought of having in-laws again is a bit of a difficult idea for me… However, it seems that I’m not alone, and when you realise you aren’t alone life, or in this case the idea of love, becomes a lot easier… Jake Thackray’s La-Di-Dah is a triumph that challenges my fear of in laws.

Benny Goodman may have died in 1986 but with my Dads taste in music his spirit was still very much alive at home when I was a girl, especially with me being a Daddy’s girl. Sing, sing, sing is one of the big band tunes that I remember being swirled around to, and it is one that my youngest likes to whisk me off my feet to a whole generation later.

Christmas TMI Tuesday

Christmas grins
Christmas Mischief

1. Are you celebrating or have you celebrated any holidays this December 2018?

For most people who know me, and perhaps if you follow me on here, it is quite clear that I have a tenuous relationship with Christmas. As a mum to two wonderful little boys who love this time of year I do celebrate Christmas. The way that we have celebrated this has changed recently…

2. Describe your typical holiday celebration.

Last year was the first time that I have taken full control of Christmas, while still giving my children the experience that they would like. Christmas eve we spent pottering around, Christmas morning the three of us open gifts and have a nice breakfast. Lunchtime takes us to somewhere wide open with a camping stove and some form of piggy goodness. Last year was Dartmoor for Bacon sandwiches, this year will be the beach for pigs-in-blankets hotdogs. The afternoon sees us cooking a slightly more traditional  turkey joint, this time with chips and peas (with extra veg on the side for me) Late boxing day we head up country, towards extended family, when everything and everybody has calmed down a little.

3. Now tell us how you really would like to spend your holiday season.

I wouldn’t change anything. I have the Christmas that I have worked hard to be allowed.

4. This time of year broadcast TV is filled with Christmas movies. What is your favorite Christmas movie?

Die Hard!!!!!

5. Does your place of work do a gift exchange or secret santa? Do you participate? What gift did you buy to giveaway this year? What gift did you get?

It has been many years since I worked somewhere that did a secret santa, but last time I did I knitted a beautiful hat for one of my staff. I was over the moon when she turned up to shift week-in week-out wearing it, not knowing who it had come from.

Bonus: Have you been naughty or nice?

I made it onto Kilted Wookie’s Naughty List so I guess that is my answer!

Love your rage, not your cage. #24

Rage against the Machine was a band who I first became aware of during my marriage. There is something missing from my world of music with the loss of them, and Take The Power Back is the way that I choose to remember them. It also seems to be relevant to my life and how I became the woman I am today. Through submission and kink I have been able to take my power back.

I love music and am always on the lookout for something new to listen to, so I hope the 30-Day Song Challenge inspires some of you to share.

Never give advice unless asked. #23

I have been wondering about a song that everybody should listen to and felt that, perhaps, it would be a great idea to share some hints and tips on a happy life. (if everyone is going to listen surely that would be good?) So I’ve chosen a tune that never fails to make me smile, dance and ponder… Sound Advice by The Allergies. (feat Hypeman Sage.)

If you just keep moving forward you’ll amaze yourself. #22

When trying to think of a song that moves me forward I couldn’t quite get my head around what that meant. But Kiss with a fist by Florence and The Machine is a song which I often sing when I’m running, the lyrics and beat just drive me on. Perhaps it is rather fitting that it is about a toxic relationship, and by singing it as I run I get further away from my history of abuse. Maybe I have given this altogether too much thought, but this is a song that moves me forward in many ways.

What’s in a name? #21

img_20181115_2145242402900402207572387.jpg

Every year my brother creates me a CD for Christmas. Songs which he has really enjoyed throughout the year, and which he also feels will be enjoyable for me. He has tried to find songs with my name in and I was planning on using one of those, but Hey There Delilah, by The Plain White T’s makes me sing along, and I adore the story of the lyrics. So this is my favourite song with a name in the title.
