Your vibes…

Everyone has a dance inside them
have you found yours?

Just listen…

Even if you have two left feet
Move them to the beat.

Dance to the life of May…


Each day, you choose the beats of life that you’ll dance to.

Make each dancing step a good one, since each new day is the first day of the rest of your life.

It’s always lovely to start the week and each day as much as we can with a smile and positive outlook. I find Leannenz Monday memes interesting.

Do have a fruitful and blessed week awesome people.

The Daily Post

The Gentleman and the maiden…

Soft giggles escaped her lips 

And she lowered her eyes in shy acquiescence

She had been waiting for this moment

His heated gaze and murmured words

Filled her with flutters of anticipation

Accepting his invitation to dance

She stepped into his arms

And allowed him to twirl her

Around the ballroom

In a sensual tango.

Let’s Get Together For Brunch…You Are Invited.


Oh this is fun

And I want a bun

It’s time for lunch

Or better still let’s have a brunch

A kettle of Cardamon tea

And a slice of vanilla cake

A sip of rich coffee

And that bite of apple pie

There might be a carafe of table wine

With lots of grapes so divine

I think I spy some Easter bunnies

Please do hand me the honey

A medley of this and that

It will be a lively chat.


This is an invitation to a Pre-EASTER Brunch, taking place this weekend in this abode from Saturday 19th to Sunday 20th.

Come let’s dance into Spring with a spring in our steps.

Do keep a date and you’ll be glad you came.

I set a day reminder at the top corner of the right bar.

It will be good to have you here.

”Share as much as you can. The more we are together, the merrier we shall be.”

A Flash Dance…Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Poetry Challenge.

Ronovan knows how to pick the words. For this week, we got ‘Flash & Dance.’ I enjoy this Haiku challenge and I am glad I took it up. Thank you kind Sir 🙂

The flash of lissome thighs
As her skirt flounced with the dance
Set his spirits on high


His flash of false teeth
And his toupee that flew with his twist
Made her dance steps falter.

These Musical Chords That Tug My Heartstrings…


La Duchesse seems to know all the good buttons to press to get my heart overflowing with good memories.

I grew up on the staple of a plethora of music from a father who adored music.

Our mornings started with music for as long as my dad was alive. Played on the Grundig turntable and then on to Bangs & Olufsen sound system.

I suspected my dad wanted to be a musical maestro and he had a gentle deep baritone.

I love music and barely discriminate except when they are offensive and filled with cuss words.

I love the oldies and the trending ones as well. Most days, I join my children in singing the new songs, especially as we drive around town and I teach them some old ones. We love turning on the radio and just having a go at it.

However, deep in my heart there are those beats that are ‘my forever’ rousing strings of chords. I shall choose 10 out of the string beats of my memories and 6 from recent ones.

They are those beats that I grew up listening to over and over as I grew up in my parents home. Their sounds always transports me right back to the butter yellow house with the red roof.  The house of my childhood.

  1. We thank thee from Jim Reeves 
  2. The Archies. Sugar, sugar 
  3. Handel’s Messiah 
  4. Kenny Roger’s Through the years 
  5. Miriam Makeba 
  6. Nat King Cole 
  7. Bob Marley 
  8. Michael Jackson 
  9. Dolly Parton 
  10. The Beatles 

I rock these ones below with my children:

  1. Dido – Life for rent 
  2. Adele – Hello 
  3. Nico Vinz – I am wrong 
  4. Afrojack – Ten feet tall 
  5. Dimtri Vegas & Like Mike – Take me to a higher place 
  6. Mark Ronson – Uptown Funk
