I haven’t posted in the last week due to a variety of reasons, but I am back tonight.
Yesterday was my granddaughter’s third birthday and today I went to her princess birthday party. She loves all things ‘princess’ or to do with Dora. We had a lovely lunch and a very noisy afternoon with four sugared up children, and a baby. Bad weather meant we were confined indoors with said exuberant children. They all had a great time, dressing up, playing games and eating party food.
I got home to find the following destruction. Ava versus cushion!! Ava won!!
I was saddened during the week to hear that Davy Jones had passed away. He was the first pop star I can remember having a massive crush on when I was only about 10 years old. I loved the Monkees, but Davy was always my favourite. I always feel as if a little bit of childhood has crumbled away when the stars I loved die. I went through my old vinyl albums this morning and found my Davy Jones LP and played it while I did the housework. I think it might have been the very first record I ever owned. It is now about 40 years old and still sounds great. I surprised myself when I remembered all the words to the songs. RIP Davy. Loved you and loved your music.
