Happy Sunday everyone!

Welcome to this week’s Sunday Morning Playlist!  I know, it’s late, so welcome to Sunday’s Playlist!  Here at last. Better late than never!

This weekend:

This weekend has been a weekend of celebration.  Firstly, on Friday I was awoken to the wonderful news that my lovely daughter-in-law had given birth to a healthy baby.  Her third child, but first daughter and the first little girl in my family.  A special granddaughter to love.  And a sister to the most brilliant, clever, funny, gorgeous boys, Henry and Oliver.  A super family and I can’t wait to get down there to see them all.

Then yesterday I double-booked myself, but all worked out so well.

Happy Sunday everyone!  Welcome to this week’s Sunday Morning Playlist!

After a lovely start to the week, walking with Blossom looking for (and finding) lovely poppy fields, my health went a bit downhill and I had a few not so good days.  But the week has finished back on a high when me and Jordan went to see Billy Joel yesterday in Manchester.  We had a brilliant time, avoided the rain and sat in the evening sunshine singing our hearts out.

Happy Sunday everyone!

It’s a lovely Sunday morning, and promising to brighten up as the day goes on.

I’ve already had Blossom out for a walk this morning: only a short one today as my walking isn’t so good at the moment.  But it was refreshing, lush and green everywhere, and Blossom came home covered in mud needing a bath, so it’s safe to say she had a fun time too!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Welcome to June!  Summer here we come!

Well, let’s hope so.  While the rest of the country has been hit by terrible storms most of the week, here in the north-east we seemed to have got away with it until yesterday.  And then the rain hit with a vengeance! But I’ve been keeping myself busy this week planting bedding plants into pots in my yard so the rain was very welcome.  Sun during the day, rain at night, that would work fine! Hopefully today will be dry as I’m going singing today!! (Blog to follow shortly!)

Sunday Morning Playlist – 27 May 2018

myextraordinarylife.me cup of tea outside with red teapot

Hi everyone!

I’m sitting outside this morning to enjoy my cuppa in the sunshine.

Sorry I haven’t been able to put on a Sunday Morning Playlist for the last couple of weeks, or anything at all on my blog for that matter.

A few weeks ago I had a bit of a set back and was in a lot of pain and just generally not very well at all, so with constant pain and brain fog I just couldn’t get myself motivated to write anything.  Two weeks ago I had a fantastic music weekend with lovely people (Big 5-0 blog to follow).  It was great, but then I had to spend 3 days in bed to recover.  Last Sunday I had every intention of posting a playlist, but having attended a charity music event on the Saturday (another Big 5-0 blog to follow) I was just too poorly the next day to do anything.  Gradually over the week, each day I’ve felt a bit better, so today I was determined I was going to do this.   I’ve got lots of blogs to catch up with so hopefully I’ll get caught up over this next week.

Having said all this, it’s been all the lovely people in my life, those close to me and those just a message away, that have got me through the last few weeks.

Happy Sunny Sunday!  Wow!  A sunny bank-holiday weekend!  This is how weekends should be.

I hope everyone gets chance to get to the seaside or a river or has a barbeque in the back garden!  We’re meeting up with a friend today, so an afternoon in the sunshine for us.  And tomorrow, Blossom is going for her first ever haircut.  She’s so shaggy and hot at the moment so I’m sure she’ll feel much better after it.

Sunday Morning Playlist

Happy Sunday everyone!

myextraordinarylife pot of blue and yellow spring flowers

Some weeks I have a good idea of what songs I’m going to choose, other weeks it takes me ages to decide.  This week I knew two of the songs – Downtown Train and Slow Motion, as I’ve been listening to these two songs and singing them all week.  The other three songs took longer to decide upon.  I probably think too long and too deep about it – I make sure the songs complement each other and I change the order around to see how intros and endings merge into each other.  I hope you enjoy this week’s choices.

Hope everyone’s weekend is going well and that it continues with a great day today.  Be happy!

Downtown Train  – Everything but the Girl

Julie – Levellers (featuring Frank Turner)

Silver Lining – Stiff Little Fingers

Two Angry Kids – Street Dogs

Slow Motion – Ferocious Dog

Sunday Morning Playlist

myextraordinarylife relax listening to music on headphones on phone with a cup of tea on a sunny morning

This week’s been great.  What a difference a bit of sunshine makes!

Everything seems better.  Everyone’s in a good mood.  There’s definitely been a holiday vibe this week – shorts and strappy tops, paddling pools and barbeques.  It’s been lovely to sit out in the sunshine on a night just talking and relaxing.  I love the light nights.

These few days this week have been so wonderful, it’s hard to believe only a month ago we had snow!  My house is very old, and extremely cold and drafty.  This time last month my smart meter read 0° in my kitchen, this week it’s reached the heady heights of 23°!  I love it!  I’m quite new to having a smart meter so I’m still a bit obsessed with it!  Let’s hope after an extremely long winter we’ve got a lot more sunny days ahead!

Happy Days and Happy Sunday to everyone!

Enjoy your weekend!

Sunday Morning Playlist

My Extra Ordinary Life Sunday Morning Playlist Tea and Biscuits on a Tea Tray

I’m part of a music group called the FTA – the Frank Turner Army, that forms a monthly playlist on Spotify.  I love this.  Members are allowed to nominate one song per month and a combined playlist of about two-hundred songs is formed.  It’s a huge commitment by the wonderful man who compiles it each month, and it’s been a huge success.  Because we all have a mutual taste in music most of the songs are immediately to my taste.  It’s a fabulous way of being introduced to new music: every month there are bands or artists that I’ve never heard of before, or those that I’ve been meaning to check out and never got round to it.   I’m still making my way through this month’s list but one of the songs that I loved and kept putting on repeat was The Omen by Camp Cope.  They’re an Australian band from Melbourne and immediately reminded me of The Smith Street Band, also from Melbourne, who I love.  The song doesn’t have a video yet, just an audio-track.  It’s taken from the album ‘How to Socialise & Make Friends’ and I’m going to spend some time this week giving it a listen.

Here’s what I’ve been listening to this week.  Enjoy this week’s Sunday Morning Playlist.

Happy Sunday everyone!  Have a great day.

 

The Omen – Camp Cope

Passiona  – The Smith Street Band

Your Graduation – Modern Baseball

Cigarettes & Saints –The Wonder Years

Monsters Ball – Electric River
