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......

The Mr, The Madam & a small b-b-q

I have managed to acquire yest another monkey cold so the blogging has been slack lately - my apologies. Today I am still a bit ick but determined to kick it so I am back. I am not sure what the universal truth in it all is but every time I start some sort of health kick, new plan, I get sick....ew.

Anyway back to my project positive....

If you have read this blog for a while you'll know that the Mr and the Madam have a bit of a wild history. When she was born he didn't cope very well, for many reasons, but now we are all systems go. She is just a mini version of him, it is actually kind of freaky how much like him she is. When they do get to spend some time together it is very cool , not just for them but for me, she just idolises her Dad and he adores her - they both hate my camera so I have to sneak photo's.

Seeing their relationship develop has been fantastic - they cooked her first barbecue together the other night after a 'Dad & daughter' shopping day so that is where these photos were taken.....definitely a positive.....
