Music, glorious music
Music is and has always been such a huge part of my life, when I was younger I watched, listened and loved musicals. The golden oldies such as: Calamity Jane, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, The Sound of Music, Oliver Twist and many, many more. I sang, I danced and found myself in roles such as: Oliver from Oliver Twist in a production at primary school, to Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz at my local youth centre. I loved to lose myself in the shoes of a character I loved, I planned to go to drama school, Silvia Young Theatre School to be exact. However, life likes to throw you a curve ball sometimes and well, I fell in love with my childhood sweetheart and here we are all these years later still loving each other, I still have that beautiful light filled feeling, I feel so lucky! The most wonderful thing is that he loves music and when I say love, I mean he is and has been in love with music all of his life! We have a tape of him singing, I am the egg man, I am the egg man, I am the walrus coo, coo, catchoo! He was in his cot soothing himself to sleep and his mum and dad recorded him chatting, and singing away. (His mum was a huge Beatles fan).
Music has been our constant, the soundtrack to our life, playing out every event. Whether it was Fathers day, Mother’s Day, or the birth of our children. My husband documented it all through monthly CD’s with pictures to remind him and us of what we were doing, and it made it so special. We have a music room in our house dedicated to his vast collection. Its called Dads room, its not really just his, well it kind of is. The kids and I will poke our heads round the door and there he is, headphones on awake and sometimes asleep. So this blog could not be without a daily/weekly page to represent my love of music. it really has got me through some tough times. Share your earworm with me
