Have you ever experienced an earworm – A tune/ song that gets into your brain – going round and round in your mind, being there at the most unexpected moments
Mine began…..if that’s how you could describe it with a simple email.
Sunday last week I had a photo forwarded to me……taken at the end of our last choir concert. You know the ‘fun’ one where everyone is supposed to be silly….only some didn’t get the cue….me included. Smiling broadly, thinking why aren’t we finished, others had moved…..leaving me (lower level far right) looking as though I’m in the spotlight
Wednesday at the last coffee morning for this half of the year, just after B had entertained us with her impersonation of a gypsy woman trying her hand at fortune telling by attempting a bit of palm reading, Janet went on to describe how her young neighbours reacted with almost horror at her placing a coin in their newborn grandsons hand. “Surely they’d heard of the Irish custom of crossing the baby’s palm with silver”
I listened to others talking about windy days and trying to walk up hilly streets, mentioning the fact the wind was in the right place …….right behind them, pushing them up the hill!
Then blow me down that afternoon at the last choir rehearsal for a while Mary reminded us to take care of ourselves until we meet again (a longer time in my case than the others)
Thinking back now I can now see all those little hints were conspiring with each other and making secret plans to upset my ‘quiet times’ and ‘peace of mind’ for the rest of the week.
Can you guess what little ‘tune’ has been going round and round in my head since then. One we sang at the concert! Not quite as loudly as the clip below……not all of us were there that day and – well, there being far more in the clip choir……but we did sing with just as much ‘love and gusto’

It’s very early Monday morning here – how was your week…..do you have anything special planned for this week? Personally, if I could persuade the last two lines of that song to leave my brain and take a hike I’d be happy 😎
