Today I have indulged in my favourite past time.. Music.
I have pretty much all day been plugged into my iPod.
After 6 hours of 'techy' stuff yesterday, trying to get all the songs I wanted put on to the damn thing, I finally got a near perfect 5 hour play list.
Everything from the likes of The Beatles and Michael Bublé to Oasis, Orson, Kelly Clarkson, The Jacksons, Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse!
I loved escaping my life (albeit interrupted, what with school runs, nappies, feeds, and potty training etc)
I had forgotten the immense joy that listening to my favourite music gives me.
My days are filled with being 'Mummy' with Nick Jr. Playhouse Disney and Cbeebies being my daily soundtrack. I have indirectly learnt every single word to every single kids programmes theme tune. That is a very sad fact indeed..
The only time I get to listen to the radio is when I'm in the car. But since the car had been off the road I haven't even had that opportunity.
I feel like I have rediscovered a very small piece of myself today. I realised that I had a little dance in my step and a smile on my face for most of the day.
The kids were happier, I was happier.
You can't beat a good bit of music therapy!
I am going to try and plug myself in to my iPod as much as I can from now on and hope that it gives me the inspiration, happiness and peaceful feeling that it did today.
