Feathers On Friday: Seeing Double

Mervyn Muscovy scooting past without stopping to greet anyone. Well,  I guess that’s what neighbours do these days.


We have a delightful elderly couple living next door and this morning, they called to ask if they and their son can come round on Sunday to sit outside in our lanai and listen to me play the piano. Apparently it’s something they have really missed during lock-down. So, we’ll put up the sun umbrella, open a bottle of Prosecco, socially distance the seating and tell the goldfish not make a noise. I’m really looking forward to our first visitors in almost three months.

Wishing you all a happy and peaceful weekend.

My Second Podcast With Rebecca Budd: The Joy Of Music

I recently connected again with Rebecca Budd a dear friend and fellow blogger from Vancouver, and we  had another enjoyable conversation via the wonderful world of Podcast. This time we spoke about the joy that music brings to our lives and I shared some of my memories of how I came to play the piano and the happiness it has brought into my life over the years. Some of you have said in the past that you would like to hear me play and when you listen to the podcast, you will hear me playing the lovely melody ‘The Way We Were’, a song made famous by Barbra Streisand. I hope you enjoy listening.

Just click the link below to be taken to the podcast.

Wishing you all a perfect Wednesday.

Expressing myself for the WPC

“Be yourself – not your idea of what you think someone else’s idea of yourself should be. “ ~ Henry David Thoreau

This week, Krista challenges us to show what “express yourself” means to us.

I enjoy expressing myself with my piano music, although nowadays I don’t play nearly as often as I used to.

My eyes often express what I’m feeling, like in this photo of hubby and happy me.


I love to express my joy at being granny to my adorable grandkids.


I adore travel, but as clothes are part of my way of expressing my individuality, I don’t tend to travel light.


Taking every opportunity for a bit of fun that comes along, ensures that I have a great time wherever I find myself.



I’m also not averse to expressing my ‘No Fear’ with a bit of up in the air riskiness, as long as I know I’ll be coming back down to terra firma afterwards.


Pretty shoes are important to me, but on the odd occasion, I don’t mind expressing my sense of adventure in really ugly wellies.


So, how do you express yourself, or what photos do you have of of someone else expressing themselves? You can join the challenge by clicking this lovely badge created by ‘firstandfabulous’ Gemma.
