For me, music is a little like blogging, I forget how much I miss it until I start to participate again.

I don’t have a soundtrack for my life, just a selection of random tunes, some of which have meaning and others which don’t.

I adore the feelings that music can invoke, and the fact that technology has moved on sufficiently enough that we can carry a whole library in our pockets, something for every minute of every day should we desire.

I’ve been listening to my various play lists in Spotify on the journeys home. I find myself getting lost in the music, for a short time imagining I am somewhere else. Easing myself over the bridge between work and home.

This morning I didn’t notice the crowds around me as I completed my usual train change, only the sunshine and the warmth upon my face as I was serenaded every step I took.

The problem is the moment I hit work or home the music stops and there is only silence, which can sometimes be deafening.

I wish that there could be music all the time, automatically selected to suit either your mood or the situation you find yourself in. Now that would be an awesome playlist.

For now I’ll just keep listening and tapping out my post, enjoying the calm before the storm.

Wonky WiFi!

Feckin WiFi


Clearly the train WiFi hates me. As everyone around me appears to seamlessly browse content on their phones, I stare endlessly at a revolving circle on a white page, that mocks me and tickles at my levels of annoyance.

It’s proving detrimental to my reading and catching up. Bloglovin  tells me I have no unread posts, which is a lie, I have millions, ok,  slight exaggeration, perhaps hundreds. It constantly loses connection and reloads, opening windows here there and everywhere peppering them with little messages telling me all the things it can’t do right now……for feck sake!

I’m trying, I promise!

Sometime later in the week

I started that post earlier in the week, but I was unable to finish it as the WiFi did not work on the train home that night, or in fact the day after, so the little half post had to lounge in my drafts until tonight.

I was going to do another if we were having coffee post, but in all honestly my life has not been that exciting this week so it would be a very short post. Apart from a night out with the girls, it was very much same old same old.

Thanks to the 12th July holidays I am not back in work until Wednesday, I’d promised that I was going to use today to catch up on my blogging and writing, but I lied to myself and in between copious amounts of cooking I played GTA. I’m not sure what it was, perhaps I got out of bed on the wrong side, but I was not feeling very hospitable. I can’t even say it’s because I’ve been having late nights as I’m having trouble keeping my eyes open these days, and I mean during the day as well….ffs!

That said, Spotify is doing a great job where GTA failed and keeping me calm. I’m currently on Chill playlists, the first one to catch my eye being a Cinematic Chill out one. I adore soundtracks and this is opening my eyes to so many that I have never heard. I am a happy woman indeed.

That’s all I’ve got for now, what’s new in the world with you eejits?

I shall leave you with the lovely Starlights by Tracey Chattaway in the hope it will put a smile on your face like it did mine!
