Classic Songs

We sometimes play ‘guess the song’ played from people’s iPhone’s at work. My collection of songs is pretty eclectic, I have a lot of rock/alternative songs to remind me of my teenage years when I enjoyed listening to Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Red Hot Chilli Peppers; but I also have a fondness of those classic cheesy tunes that you know all the words to. My younger colleagues, in their early twenties, didn’t manage to name three of my below favourites (Madonna is pretty easy, as she’s been around forever making new songs). It’s a definite sign of age 🙂



Pilgrim Jewellery

Finally coming out of hibernation now that it’s finally got warmer after a very cold Spring, managed to dig out an old Pilgrim lily necklace that I bought about six years ago! Very unique piece bought both the turquoise and pink, I used to love Pilgrim jewellery but for the past few years, they seem to have lost their sparkle with me, I miss this Danish brands pretty floral designs 😦

the cowdray in Sussex

Made the most of the warm weather, and ended up in Sussex for a roast Sunday lunch at the cowdray. Pleasantly surprised, lots of space to park, outside seating area as well as indoor, went for the roast lamb, didn’t have to wait long for my order. Very generously sized portion and struggled to finish it, but enjoyed trying. I was too full to consider dessert. The service was good. Unfortunately, I don’t live in the area, and it was a random spare of the moment trip, so probably won’t visit that often, but I’d recommend it to someone who was in the area.
