Eurovision, that is.
I only ask as there was a segment of it on Breakfast telly. We were waiting for the weather report (wet and windy) and there were a few songs with 2 or 3 different versions of each.
Does nobody remember that the times we have won were all with catchy tunes and banal words that are easily remembered. Good sing a long and karaoke stuff, you understand that I use the word good with my tongue firmly in my cheek.
That was unkind, some of them were good and once the music starts I can still remember most, if not all, of the words.
I suppose they are a bit like Abba songs, no one admits to liking them but when one comes on the radio just about everyone sings along.
If and when I see a clip on the TV it is not the music that makes me cringe, OH NO, it is the dancing!. The thing that really makes my toes curl is the memory that I did all those moves.
Oh Boy did I think that I was sooo cool.
The clothes, most of them, make me want to wear them all over again. Even the Hot Pants.( but only if I was that size again)
I made my own and often made a matching mini skirt, no embarrassing flashing of knickers here....... OOOH does anyone remember the tights that has knickers for the body, the idea was that if you snagged the leg you could cut them off and still have underwear. I bought mine from British Home Stores on St Stephen's road in Norwich, ( most days you could breathe in the scented air from the Mackintosh chocolate factory) they were American tan with Orange knickers attached. Only a couple of pairs as they were not nice at all. One size were too short and gradually slithered down, the next size up were so long that you had the waist up in your armpits and Nora Batty wrinkles before she had been invented.
Dinner yesterday became a series of little snacks, we had a late lunch and were not really hungry.
Today I will have the slow cooker going, a load of veg, diced quite small, a pack of passata, some fresh herbs, ginger and garlic. Once it has had 3 hours on high I will stir in some Bulgar Wheat and a little extra seasoning and it will need about another hour.
I did cook a beef casserole in it yesterday and that is tucked away in the fridge. It may well be tipped into big Yorkshire Puddings for tomorrow. Or perhaps in a suet pastry steamed pudding, real cold weather food.
I have finished my mid morning coffee, the rain seems to be diminishing so we may get a reasonable walk in soon. This wet front should be moving Eastwards through the day, that can happen as soon as it likes.
I have jobs to do so I better get cracking, the sooner started the sooner finished.
