Now, you know me, I can’t stop at one!

First thing, music is one of the most important aspects of my life. If I’m in any situation, I can think of a song to go with it! And if there isn’t one, I’ll make one up! I love so many different genres of music, that my collection may look pretty eclectic to some!

As a youngster, I did the whole music lesson thing… I tried guitar, but was put off by the teacher, who would sit with a pack of coloured polos and a pencil, using the latter to pick up a polo by the hole, one at a time, slowly devouring the pack during the lesson! Then if I played a note wrong, which I inevitably did, my hand would get a smack with said pencil!

Then I had a go at recorder because those were the days that everyone was made to play recorder at primary school! I was okay… not that good, though!

I always wanted to learn to play the piano from a young age. At the time my parents were advised against it as my hands would be too small… strange…have you seen those prodigies, aged tiny, whose little fingers whizz over those ivory keys?!

Still, at the time, I didn’t pursue it, but at 6th form, it was decided that I would have a crash course, as playing the piano was a skill that was perfect for a primary school teacher.  I picked up quite a bit, but then promptly forgot it when I went to university! Though I can still pick a tune out!

I think I should stick to singing!!!

So my first photo is dedicated to my musical instruments of old!


Loved my recorder
Even though I couldn’t play
Very well at all!


Stood in  a corner
My guitar gently weeps
Not played anymore

Did you know, even the furbaby of the family has a penchant for music?



Move over Tom Jones
A media sensation!

And the last photo is not one I took, but a friend snapped my Pops, dancing at my wedding.  I think it encompasses him, and as a family, our love of music and dance, totally! This was taken 15 years ago, and since then he’s lost a bit of weight through his yoga, and he is turning 70 in 2 weeks too! Oh, I do love my Pops!!!!!


Pops busting his moves
Like he’s twenty one again
Old is always gold!

Hope you enjoyed them all!

    If a teacher or other adult had smacked me, I would’ve smacked them back. 🙂

    I’d forgotten that I too had recorder lessons at school. However, the only thing I could play on it was the first four verses of ‘Three Blind Mice’! My parents had to buy the recorder for me and sadly it then went up into the attic. I wonder if my father still has it? I’ll have to ask him.

    Another great entry for my photo challenge, Ritu. You’ve covered so much in it and I love the final photo of your dad having a dance. Good for him!

    I loved all three of these. I would have loved to have been able to play the piano too. Your dad looked like he was having a fantastic time 🙂

    I am sure I could feel his enjoyment. When I played the recorder people said I was good … but I think they just prefered it to my singing. 😇

    It’s not unusual… to see a cat singing Tom Jones songs!
