One lady I can always rely on to be around, whether on Twitter, Facebook or via text, at any time of the day or night is Clara from Claraunravelled. A while ago she ran a linky called Mixtape Monday where we could share songs; some times she picked a theme, other times it was left up to the blogger. It was a linky I joined in with pretty regularly (at least as regularly as Clara set the linky up 😉 ) and I missed it when she stopped doing it.
So, I was thrilled when, on catching up with my blog reading, I discovered that she has revived this linky!
This week there is no theme.
Yes, I am nothing if not predictable. (You knew it would be a Robbie track didn't you?!)
I have done a lot of soul-searching recently and some realisations have been extremely difficult for me to accept and yet, I am reminded of this song in many ways. I have never thought regrets helpful, they are, broadly speaking, a waste of time. Every thing I have done or been through has led me to this point in my life; a point where I am happy, content, have a loving family and some wonderful friends. Would I have all of this if I hadn't travelled the road I have? Who knows?
Thank you Clara for reviving this!
I have had a tough week for a number of reasons, some of which will become clear later this week, some of which shall remain private and this song has reminded me why the husband and I keep going through these difficult times.
Having just got back from a trip to the beautiful Hope Cove, I just had to share the song that is a firm favourite of mine and my siblings when we are there. None of us really know why it started but it's become a sort of tradition to sit in the family room of the Hope and Anchor at least once on a visit and put this tune on the juke box, along with a few others. Unfortunately we didn't manage it this time as the only time we went to the pub was during the footy match last night!
If you want to see a few more bloggers share their sound track for the week, head over to I Want My Mummy.
The fabulous I Want a Mummy has returned with Mix Tape Monday!
No theme this week but I am going to share this. For no other reason than H demands it constantly!
I haven't taken part in Mixtape Monday for a few weeks now and I don't think there is a theme this week.
In any case, the summery days recently made me want to share this. For me, this is the ultimate summer chill out song and I adore it. I hope you enjoy it too!
Tara who blogs over at Tales of a Family of Seven has started this mem.
Simply show us what was Number 1 in the UK music charts when your children were born!
I have to admit I don't often listen to the radio these days and I don't recall actually hearing this song before but this is what was Number 1 when H was born!
So I now tag the following:
It's a nice easy Meme so I hope I won't get told off too much!
Sorry, I am getting this in a few hours early, just because I don't know what time I will be free tomorrow to post it. Or if I will remember to.
This week's theme is Blockbusters.
Here is my choice:
I love the film and the soundtrack and whilst it may be a predictable choice given Whitney Houston's death this weekend, few can deny this epitomises the Hollywood blockbuster. Plus it was a favourite of my mum's.
If you want to hear some other choices, head to iwantamummy's page!
I have decided to join in iwantamummy Mixtape Monday.
This week's theme is A Song I Hate.
Mine is inspired by my Little Sister who as a toddler adored this and drove us all crazy with her constant playing of it once she received it from Father Christmas.
I give you Mr Blobby
