Hello and welcome to my blog. I've been getting some thoughts & feelings, exasperations and the odd happy moment down on the blog which helps my sanity and, I hope, provides a little entertaining read for you for a couple of minutes!

Right now I am mostly concentrating on getting through a rocky financial patch which I really hope will be cleared (all being well) by the end of Summer 2013. In the meantime I need to concentrate on continuing to do well in my "new" job (actually got it in Sept 2011 but it still feels new!) and living my life as frugally as possible.

Thanks for stopping by and if you leave me an encouraging comment, it'll make my day. :-)

Free Music Saturday!

Today has a musical theme.  I hope you enjoy it.  (And I really hope that they come out ok!)

The other day I very naughtily indulged in a packet of hula hoops from the canteen at work.  I know...I know...

Anyway, there was a code on the back for a free music download so tonight I browsed the site and stumbled across this song which I absolutely love but I haven't heard it for years so I had forgotten just how much I do love it.  Here it is off YouTube but it's not brilliant quality though unfortunately :-(

Following on from that, here is a song that always sorts me out whenever I am feeling sorry for myself.  At this point in time I am lucky enough not to have that much to worry about apart from crappy money and it could be (and has been) so much worse, so, I really should stop stressing about it and do the best I can with this one life I have with the resources I have, whilst I can.

And finally here is a song I heard on the car radio the other week which was such a treat...it always makes me turn it up loud, sing along (badly) and never fails to cheer me up.  You just don't get a man in a red cod piece on prime time Thursday night TV these days do you?  (Anyone my age will remember this legendary Top of the Pops performance back in the eighties...)

Enjoy!  And happy Saturday to you all. x x x


  1. Great tunes, especially "Life's what you make it" one of my favourites!

    And who could forget Mr Codpiece! Cameo was truly great though, I have their albums too.

  2. Thanks Anne. I just edited my post as I realised after posting that the Suzanne Vega one was pretty poor quality. Slightly gutted!

    Anne, I think we have superb taste in music ;-)
