This brings me back to thoughts of seasons...

Although I haven't yet been hugged! Mind you I haven't hugged myself yet either. Maybe that's what's going wrong...
In other news, I have fallen in love... with a dress... I am very excited today because I am having one made as a birthday present from my family. When it's all finished I will post a photo of it!
In the meantime I am singing Paul McCartney songs in my head and hanging out washing and feeling nervous about my solo gig on Sunday - and excited!

Now as well as music going around my head, there are always words as well...
Maybe because we are very soon to be calling it winter, I am thinking today, about the seasons. But not just the weather, and time of year, I'm also thinking about seasons in our lives...
The way sometimes a whole pile of things seem to come to a close at around the same time, and new opportunities, or new problems seem to emerge all at once. The way you look back on things that happened seasons ago and realise how much you have since learned.
So today I'm a deep thinker about seasons. I think the weather does play a part in how we feel though. I always try to remember to look out the window when I'm inside for a long time and keep in touch with what the sun, clouds, wind or rain are doing - it seems to keep you in reality.
I'm cleaning up after babies, and playing piano today in preparation for my gig on Sunday. I'm looking out the window and thinking about going for a walk as soon as I can as well! Hope this is going to be a prosperous winter for all.

I am currently writing this from Facebook! I just spotted an application which will let me post both from blogger & from here! Feeling a little confused! May need a cup of tea and a break from the computer, this is all getting too technical!!!

"...It's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n roll.."
"I just wish a could have told him, in the living years..."making me long to know what that song was about... I can remember the first time I looked through my fathers record collection and found Pink Floyd - never to be the same again was I after hearing that, in the best way!

I have been thinking about it for a long time...
A place to write, and share. A place to express more than just 'hey, I'm a singer, you should buy my album.' A place that is more than 'Twelve Short Stories."
* * *
I got up at 5am this morning with my husband who had to be on set for an acting job. After I saw him off I sat down here and thought, right, I am going to be a blogger! So I have spent the morning creating an account and getting excited and nervous all at once! This is a big gig for me! I am a shy person naturally, so I am partly doing this as an exercise in self confidence - and I'm ready!
I hope you will stay with me and read these short stories each day. I promise to keep it interesting - I have a very interesting life based around family, strong beliefs, really big earrings (!) and of course, music - my most faithful gift... I am a songwriter, and a singer. I have had the privilege of working in a band with my husband and brother-in-laws for nearly ten years now - we rock, don't you worry! I will tell you more as we go along...
So here it is, my first post. New, like the morning! ...and it's going to be a beautiful day!
