Tough Times

I have been quite busy recently, with one thing and another, not least the installation of a spanky (and long overdue) new bathroom* including, for the very first time, my own shower. I still prefer a bit of a hot soak in the bath (good for getting the chill and aches out of the old bones), but given the very poor water pressure in our house, the electric shower is proving an attractive alternative.  Building work is always disruptive and messy so it’s fair to say that I didn’t get a lot done in the last couple of weeks…well, apart from tiling, that is, and lots of running around sourcing bits and pieces for the bathroom.

Of course, following on from our last Hop’s musical theme, the obvious response (and earworm) is “I’d like the teach the world to sing…”. Unfortunately, this would probably require a level of musical competence beyond the ability to bellow along to the car stereo at the top of my voice. Still on a musical theme the next thing that sprang to mind was “Lessons in love”, but along with general life guidance, the Kama Sutra has that fairly comprehensively and imaginatively covered.

Rhythm of Life

Welcome to another edition of the Tarot Blog Hop, the 50th no less. This time, our wrangler has given us a musical theme, so take your seat and turn off your mobile phone, but before the lights to go down and the show begins, take a few moments to familiarise yourself with the exits, which will take you to the back door, the front door or the foyer.
