Show me your tunes & I'll show you mine!

Music makes up a huge part of my life. I can't sing and I definitely can not play but I love to listen. I have it in the car, in the house, on the computer, on my ipod - I love it. Since I was a child I have probably invested just as much in earphones as I have on books - I love it when I am on my own and put the earphones in.

In a past life, before the Mr & Madam, I used to go and see bands all the time. I don't think anything quite compares to that first time when you see a singer/band live and it is in some dodgy venue and you just know they will be huge and that this is a once in a lifetime chance.


Now that I am a domestic goddess (stop laughing!) my musical experience is a pair of earphones and an ipod more than a band and a pub. I am thinking that I need some new music though so I am proposing a swap. I have never hosted one but I will give it a go.

If you want to take part just comment - I will leave it open until next Tuesday. If there is a mass of people I can just give everyone a partner - if there is just one other well then it is just you and me! Nothing flash but if you want to put some new music (maybe 10 songs?) on a CD and post it too someone else - how does that sound? A good ol' mix tape (or mix CD as such!)I guess it might cost about $4.00 all up with CD & postage.

I figure a change is as good as a holiday.....maybe the songs inspire you , make you laugh, make you reminisce, whatever floats your boat - maybe it will float another person's boat too!

Leave a comment and I'll figure the rest out......
