Show and Tell & Crafty Sunday

It's the 1st Sunday of the month so it's Show and Tell time!!

This month is hosted by Justine & she has chosen your favourite CD/Song......this was going to be hard!!!!

First favourite CD.....

On the 2nd July 1985 I brought this LP for my sister's birthday.....not sure she wanted it but I sure did!!! 25 years later & I still have it & in lots of different formats......record, mini disk, tape....(remember that??!!!) CD, IPod & IPhone.

In 1985 I had tickets to see them play in Exeter, I was hoping to sneak in & stay at a friends house so my parents wouldn't find out......they did & at 14 they wouldn't let me go :(

In 1988 when I met OH I found out his band had supported them at the very odd is that???!! I did finally get to see them in '89 & they were great! I tried to break into Beautiful Days festival about 6 years ago to see them but could only make it to the sister at that time was heavily pregnant but she came with me & it poured with rain!
They did play Exeter Art's centre a few years ago but they mainly play in America now or festivals.

Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons - The Night

Always reminds me of a happy time in my life...... I was young, footloose & fancy free, just enjoying life :)

But no you can't choose just is the sound track of your life so of course you have more then one favourite song. Others include......

The Men They Couldn't Hang - Parted From You

The Men They Couldn't Hang - Iron Masters
Always fantastic live & a bit wild!!!

Dexy's Midnight Runners - Geno
One of the first singles I brought age 9....I was always ahead of my time with music!

Fun Boy 3 - Tunnel of Love
Cynical love song.......fantastic!

Billy Ocean - Red Light Spells Danger
Sister Sledge - Love Don't You Go Through No Changes On Me
Scooter rally days :)

ooohhhh I don't want to stop! This has been such fun & I have so many more but I think I'm being greedy. Have you noticed that I've chosen nothing after 1985???
mmmm I don't do modern music.......and see no Pogues!!!

It's also Crafty Sunday so here's a few things I've made over the week.....

Not the cardi!!!! This is my friends birthday gift, I love the cardi but I thought it would look really nice on a crocheted hanger with a lavender heart. She wanted a ribbon corsage to go with her new coat .......this one is very patriotic!

Yet another lavender heart.....

This is for my other friend, I also made her some Granny square slippers but I forgot to take a photo before wrapping! I'm always rushing at the last minute!!!
You can see what I made them both last year here & here......thank goodness for I can remember what I gave last year!!!!
I've also been working on a gift for my friends baby due on the 24th but I'll save that for the next Crafty Sunday.

Today is my last day at work for 1 week..... I can't wait!!!! It will be my first holiday without Zoe which does mean I could go away but I've no money :( I'd love to go to London just for one night but it's cheaper to fly to Spain!!!! Why do we charge so much for trains & hotels in this country???? It's so silly :(

Tuesday is Make, Do and Mend & on Saturday I'm hoping to do something very special, something I've wanted to do for years.....I'm very excited but I won't say just yet in case it falls through.

Back soon


  1. I'm glad it's just not me whose list has gotten out of control, we should have done top 10 CD's!!!

  2. Great music choices, and I love the little crochet hearts!

  3. I love the little crochet hearts too.

    Thanks for your comment re Nipper. My goodness I find one difficult child hard to handle, your friend must be a saint!

    Hope you have some lovely time off.

  4. Do you know I've never been really into (aside from my Take That exploits in my younger days!).

    I obviously like songs and certain people but I couldn't tell you what my favourite song is and I don't often listen to music at home
