This rap will stick in your head, believe me!

Ok, so you’re going to have to forgive me here.

I know I’d intended my last blog post to be the only politically themed one I would be doing, but a very dear friend of mine has been tinkering away behind the scenes for a while now working on a video and I absolutely MUST share it with you.

Hang on in there and I guarantee you won’t be able to get the rap out of your head! 😀

Just can’t get into it

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh ….. *long drawn out sigh*

You know you get those days sometimes; those days where you look around and see so many things that need doing, but every time you ask your brain if it wants to get involved it gives you a big “NAH!! … Go away and leave me alone!!”. Well today is one of those days.

It happens to be my birthday too, although I don’t think there’s a connection.

67 years ago today I was probably kicking and screaming my way onto this planet, poor planet. But today it’s like all I can do is make another coffee, sit around waiting for the rerun of today’s F1 Grand Prix, and watch never-ending YouTube videos.

So here’s the one that sums today up perfectly. 😀
