https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTWXBtq5aYg "And I know I don't possess you, with all my heart, God bless you." I adore this song. The girls and I have been listening to the Mamma Mia 2 soundtrack on high rotation, not for the first time. We all love ABBA (how can you not?!), we love Mamma Mia 1 and 2 … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday: My Love, My Life
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DR-3P9zIMhM&t=14s Keeping it real with my holey nightie and messy lounge ❤ It's Tunes Tuesday, and until 4:30 this afternoon I had no idea what I was going to record. I could have let it go. I'm feeling a bit blocked up, had slept 4.5 hours in 36 hours and was pretty tired after night … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday- I Can’t Stand the Rain
I came to midwifery much later in life, beginning study at 30 years of age when my eldest was just 1, and graduating 5 years later when my youngest was just shy of 3. It was a gruelling path and I would not have stuck to it through all the trials, tribulations, sacrifice and anxiety … Continue reading Midwife Emerging.
https://youtu.be/Vq0dyiyRqJY Taking on Lady Gaga is pretty terrifying. The woman is insanely talented and this piece is just perfection. I could never perform it as well as she does, the way she does, so I won't try to! Dee and I made a few little changes here and there to better suit our style and … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday- Always Remember Us This Way
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQS1gA-xslk If you like bloopers look out for Dee's facial expression at 2:46...It was take 4 and I wasn't doing it again! Well here we are, it's another Tuesday and I haven't blogged about something else since my last #tunestuesday offering, or the one before that (look at me go, experimenting with hashtags). On one … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday and an Update – “Tell Him”- Done Differently.

This is another one of our golden oldies from an era when the Ally McBeal soundtrack played on repeat and both of us would have married Robert Downey Junior (who sings Dee's part in Vonda Shepard's version of this Bob Seger … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday with Dee
https://youtu.be/-bl5BsCDmDI Well it's Tunes Tuesday, a way for me honour my second favourite creative endeavour, singing, (writing is no. 1) and share what casual creative expression can look like in a suburban setting. It's not flashy, but it's real. If it encourages even one viewer to honour their own neglected creative soul, it will be … Continue reading Tunes Tuesday- From Silly to Serene

Christmas 2020 School holidays suck for writing. I barely managed to scrape in the last Tunes Tuesday at the last minute by the skin of my teeth. Since then, it's been the lead up to Christmas, full time parenting, and then, of course Christmas, which was lovely and boozy and very pleasant. Christmas Day was … Continue reading On Cautious Optimism
