Six Word Saturday
My six words this week were chosen last night as I struggled on trying to find the motivation to keep pushing on until the job was completed
'Without Music I Would Really Struggle'
Quite simply I just LOVE music!It is something which pulls me through many a tough spot especially when I'm tired and do not have the energy to go and do whatever task needs doing.
Last night I was doing assessments for work and they had taken hours and I truly think the music kept me sane!It was my 'comfort zone' music ~ 70's hits on Smooth Radio,I don't know if it's because it was the music that was around when I was growing up at home but there's something about that era that always settles me down and when I'm tired or stressed if I put the music on I'm much happier carrying on with stuff.It kinda feels like a security blanket, all cosy and warm!
I really love my radio and I have different stations for different moods ~
Smooth Radio for most of the day
Radio 2 for Simon Mayo Request on Friday nights ( its got a real weekend feel to it)
Smooth 70's for when I'm tired and need motivation! This can happen quite regularly!
Oh and Mellow Magic for when it's later at night and the boys are not
watching the television ( it comes through our tv set in the lounge)
The boys hate this fact with a passion!
'Why do you watch radio!?!" they will chorus.
But I love to curl up with my phone,chat to twitter friends and listen to soft mellow music at the end of a day.
The boys definitely do not understand my love for the radio!
I was only about 8 when I got bought my first radio and it's still in the loft (I think)
I can remember thinking it was the best thing ever and some of the DJ's are still going now,Tony Blackburn and Simon Bates to name a few.
I do like listening to music on my iPod and IPhone too and there I have a unfortunate habit of putting songs on repeat which also drives the older two boys mad.
I like lots of different kinds of music too,from all the old songs up to some of the music the teens listen too,my eldest son often finds me tracks that he knows I will like and he's usually right,this amuses me greatly!
My must play album this week is Mirage Rock by The Band Of Horses and certain songs have been on the dreaded repeat button!
Does anybody else feel the same about music?Do you have different music for different moods?And what music do you all like?Please share with me,I would genuinely be interested.
