Can’t get you outta my head!

Did you click on this thinking it might be a post about our favourite Australian soap-turned-pop star, Kylie? Well if you did then I’m sorry to disappoint because it’s not*. However, when musing on this blog post, her 2001 pop classic pinging into my head. Because what I’m here to tell you today folks is the baby / toddler songs which are now on perma-loop in my head since becoming a mother. This list isn’t finite but it’s the ones

Top 5 reasons why going back to work is great

I’ve done the nerve-wracking, stomach-churning reasons why I am not looking forward to going back. Now it’s time to call out the good things, the things that will encourage me to skip out the front door in the morning. Because let’s face it, full time child care involves dealing with one of the less flexible demographics in society (Try asking an 11 month old to wait 2 minutes for the bowl of fruit they’ve just seen you get out the

Come on folks, let’s start listening again!

The other day we stopped for petrol. When Sam went in to pay, a group of lads pulled up outside in some pimped-up Corsa (or similar). One of the lads got out to let his mate out the back. Both of them had the notorious white Apple headphone cord hanging out of one ear. So, in a car of 5 friends, at least two (one of whom was driving!), were sat in the car with one ear on their friends

Music – the key to an erg test

I did my final 5k erg test of the season (I think / hope) on Wednesday. As I have mentioned in a previous post, I find music crucial for erging. This is even more true for an erg test; it’s not just the songs, but the order that matters too! So, here is my most recent erg playlist and reasons why: We Found Love – Rihanna (feat. Calvin Harris): a fast paced and beat-y tune to really kick some energy

Music to use ergs by.

I have a 5k erg time due by Saturday evening. I really do not take any pleasure in doing a 5k test. In some of the various rowing books I read, people have said that a 5k is the hardest thing they have ever done, including someone who went to fight in Afghanistan. Now, having never done the latter, I cannot comment there, but I know it is one of the hardest physical tests I have ever put myself through.

Blog Post 20-01-2011

I must say, it has been a tiring week this week.  I went to the hairdressers tonight and that in itself zonked me out.  How is it that sitting can be so tiring?!  Whenever I go to the hairdresser, I normally drift off in to my dreamy-trance state and watch the music vids they have on.  However, all around are people chatting and I feel like I should be too.  But I don’t want to make conversation; not because I

Blog Post 27-10-2010

Okay, the cold has arrived! I am feeling truely bunged up. Damn it! I hate trying to work when it feels like your head is in a vice. I have taken a trusty sudofed though which has eased. The train was stifling today and everyone was sat in their coats. I had to remove my jacket and my jumper! Then the tube was stuffy too, although I was having a little bop for most of the journey because one of

Bbbdduuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

That is the sounds of the pneumatic drill which has been running all day outside my window at work.  It’s driving me mad!  It’s okay when I’m chatting or actively doing something, but the moment I try and think that is all that fills my head.  Even my iPod isn’t blocking it out.  Although I am listening to some very good tunes!  It’s a play list I made myself called ’22 June 2008′, full of top tunes, new and old!

Damn the internet

It’s so frustrating sometimes.  The internet is so damn informative that you almost reach the point where you can’t find anything!  I really want to find this dance tune I like.  It’s not hugely recent and all I can remember is the video.  I have tried searching for lyrics in various lengths and combos but nothing.  Bah!  Oh well, I shall have another 5 min search and then go and Wii Fit before my relaxing bath.  See how stree-free I
