Sounds For Sunday

It so easily could have felt like the longest winter ever. One of the side effects of children - so my mum used to tell me - was that time moved so much faster. Never enough time, she used to say, never enough time. And while for a brief moment during the last six months I was frozen in place, now I'm thawing out and time is moving normally, fast even thanks to my own incoming offspring. I knew I was coming back to life, when I was finally able to write about how I was feeling recently. I normally am only able to write about my feelings when I'm on the other side of them. While I'm in the middle of a storm I'm too busy trying to survive.

I certainly wouldn't have been able to get through the winter without The Beautiful Wife. So I'll dedicate this Sounds For Sunday to her. Five years ago this weekend we became an official couple, after several months of dancing around the fact. Everybody knew what was going on, but sometimes you just have to be patient. And now look at where we are, where we've come, the road we've travelled on to this point, and the road we're about to travel on.

Like nobody's business... x

The tune today is Sister Sledge, Thinking Of You. Which is another one of those that I forget about until I hear it; a fantastic performance, song, and production, possibly the best Chic production. A perfect tune for the imminent rise of spring and drifting away with somebody special.

Sister Sledge - Thinking Of You

I agree totally about Thinking of You, it is Chic at they're very, very best, always makes me feel warm inside.

There's much happiness to come - in your home and your hearts.

Like a technocolour explosion in a paint factory, you'll be showered with laughter and love and hope.

Stay strong - even in the messy times. That's all any of us can do kiddo.

And how lovely to have blog friends who care too.

You're a lucky bastard. Never forget!
