Greetings Pogue, Sometimes I just need a song to help me keep up the pace as I move though the day. A song to help me bop along. It’ll reenergise me and sing along in my head, shutting out the noise. I hope you know what I mean? Well, George Ezra writes songs that are … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue! Wic is in the house! I say, WIC IS IN THE HOUSE! A bit dramatic you think? Well after 6 months of spare rooms, sofa beds, and rented accommodation I have finally moved in. And I’m sleeping in my own bed and it’s…a great feeling! But today is Monday and it’s a Musing moment … Continue reading Monday Musing
Dear Pogue, So here we are at the commencement of a New Year and we’re all resolutioned up. All those things we intend to do to improve life. Weight to lose, fitness to gain, bad habits to shed. We do it every year and then, round about the third week of January begin to flag. … Continue reading The Last Year To Come
Morning Pogue, And this is what I've been listening to for the past few days. You know some thing, a song maybe, just pops into your head. You find yourself humming the tune or maybe singing the song, but if you stop and think, you can't see a reason why it might be there. Weird … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Pogue, So I'm writing away the other day and I just needed music. A fix you might say. Which is unusual as I normally write in silence so I can hear the inspiration (even as I write this I hear you saying, "What inspiration"). I did say "hear it" and not heed it! Anyway, you're … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
So the years coming towards an end Pogue, I might only get a couple more musical moments in🥺. Best make the most of them and there is so much I want to share because, well, music is the heart beat of life (?). Ok a little dramatic but you get my drift. I looked back … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Hey Pogue, I have a list of favourite films and the song I’m sharing with you today is from The Chef. It’s what I’ve been listening to. Such a feel good film, with great music and...always makes me want to go and create in the kitchen. Enjoy the music. It’s not your regular music post. … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…What I’m Listening To Now.
Pogue, Remember, win the morning, win the day.... This one will help and you have my permission to bop around your kitchen, coffee in hand, to start your day. Shot, Reverse Shot by Jack Johnson. We all love a bit of Jack. Sorry about the ads but, hey, small price to pay for a great … Continue reading Songs to Pogue…what I’m listening to now.
Pogue, Nearly there! Not without stress I would add. Another piece had managed to avoid being contained in position at the right moment. You only discover these errant pieces when you come to build a new section, and this is, without fail, many stages down the line. Another moment when, as I struggled to get … Continue reading The Harley Diaries. Lockdown With Attitude 4.
Pogue, You need to know I’m sitting here browsing Amazon. I’ve entered the search term “daughter” and there are a number of options coming up, some on next day delivery! There’s a very nice young lady called Keira Knightly, little older than you but not much, and very affordable. And there’s Anna Kendrick. Both seem … Continue reading The Harley Diaries. Lockdown With Attitude 3.
Pogue, OK, so I’ve spent more than three hours assembling pieces that have no right to exist in a, or all, universes. More, what sort of troubled people do Lego employ? Who spends their working day deconstructing a perfectly good motorcycle, a Harley Davidson Fatboy no less, to enable them to turn it into a … Continue reading The Harley Dairies. Lockdown with attitude 2.
Well Pogue, I needed to drop you a note. You will remember your Christmas gift to me. A Harley Davidson Fatboy. You so understand me! It was wonderful. It was horrible. It was Lego! Now as you know I don’t do jigsaws. I don’t understand why I’d want to put together a picture that I … Continue reading The Harley Diaries. Lockdown with attitude.
Dear Pogue, So we’re on our travels again and what more appropriate than a postcard? I have a blog that I share with a pair of rogues called Chris and Polie, a wayward moose and verbal challenged polar bear (he can’t say some of his r’s so things are all wight) who is quite wise. … Continue reading On the road again
Dear Pogue, Right back at the start, in our first exchange of correspondence, words on paper, ink, messy finger prints (what would a letter be without a blotch or two?) uneven margins, you remember? Well we committed to our own personal attempt at a revolution. One that we would have for fun, spurred on and … Continue reading Let me tell you a secret.
If you make a revolution, make it for fun, Don't make it in ghastly seriousness, Don't do it in deadly earnest, Do it for fun D H Lawrence - A Sane Revolution Dear Pogue, I have decided to write you a letter as opposed to sending an email or something on social media. … Continue reading Let’s Have A Little Revolution
