Throwback Thursday – 08/04/21.

The House That Jack Built.

I have no idea why this place was dubbed that when I was a kid, but us kids always called it that.

Childhood memories.

The House That Jack Built.

Thought For Thursday- 20/08/20

This week I feel like I’ve overcome a lot. I saw this pic on Pinterest when I was actually looking for something else. It really resonated with me and I think it’s a really good piece of advice.

Each Throwback Thursday, remind yourself how far you’ve come on this journey. The struggles you’ve overcome.

And breathe. You’ve got this.

Music.

 

Music is important to all of us, in some way or another.  Whether we listen to pop music, rock music, classical, hip-hop, reggae, indie, electronic, dance, whatever, music is important to us whatever our taste.

My own taste is very eclectic; one day I will listen to nothing other than U2, whereas the next I am singing along to the Spice Girls.  I used to share songs on a former blog – I can’t recall why I closed that blog down- I found it was an excellent way to explore the music I really love listening to and to share what a particular song actually means to me.  I aim to re-introduce that to my blog, so be ready to be inundated with cheesy songs.

Starting this journey off is a song that I have shared on this blog before.  The song is from 1982 – I was 11 – and it is by the Australian band Men At Work.  The reason I love this song so much is because it cheers me up.  It reminds me of a simpler time in my life, I was still in primary school, life was good and I was protected from the harsh realities of life by my parents and Aunty, whom I was always with.  It’s such a fun song and my song of choice whenever I feel down, it never fails to cheer me up.
