even when……

I missed the start of #blogjune this year so I’m just popping my head up here very briefly. It has been a sad few last days with the passing away of Harrison cat on Friday night. He had been to and from the vet for the past two weeks as he had gone off his […]

Writing not blogging

I know. It’s been a while. Again. I’ve trawled back through this blog this morning and discovered intermittent posts where I’ve promised to start blogging regularly again. But really, we must ask ourselves, What is regularly? Well unfortunately for me, I believe that once every year or so doesn’t really define “regularly” when we’re speaking […]

I hope not sporadically….

Ah the pressure of a final blogjune post. I have posted somewhat sporadically this June. I wanted to write about music. I ended up writing about music, life, the universe and bits and pieces of other things including imposter syndrome which emerged as a theme in a number of blogjune posts. I shall continue to […]

Music is a great teacher…or on not building failure snowballs

For previous blogjunes I’ve been one of those people who challenged themselves to post everyday for fear of failing. So, this year (when I definitely haven’t managed to post everyday) I was happy to read Kate’s post on what “failure” teaches us.┬áMissing one day (or two or three) makes no difference. Success is in getting […]

In praise of lazy weekends

I have had a lazy weekend and it’s been blissful. I did achieve some things. I did the washing and folding and putting away. This is nothing short of miraculous. Usually I manage the washing and then the clean clothes pile up for about a month in the washing basket. This is then followed by […]

Time out for some meme-time

Layer One: The Outside 1. What’s your preferred name? Well my name is Wendy so generally that’s preferred. Lots of people who have known me for ages call me “Wen”. I don’t notice. My family call me “Wenny”. At uni I was “Wendy Woo”. I’m not sure why. 2. Do you wear glasses? Only all […]

At the risk of sounding like an old fart…

It’s that time of the week when I put together my playlist for Tunn Rocks. I’ve been doing this since sometime last year for each Wednesday night. What a privilege it is to be able to inflict my musical tastes and choices on an unsuspecting internet radio listening public. If you are unaware, Tunn Rocks […]

The Pathetique Sonata and other things

Last night I started watching Quartet after Rockwiz. I remember enjoying it the first time around but this time I found it all a little cliched yet meaning well. I had questions too. For example, where was Judi Dench? Surely she should have been in the Pauline Collins role. I didn’t watch it through until […]
