On the Bandwagon

27 Jan

Well as predicted Harry Potter has already made his way onto the screen.  I thought that I would use this time, not to do one of the gajillion loads of washing waiting, nor to clean the floors after yesterdays shindig but to borrow a meme and type away.  Thanks for the distraction Ash at Chatabox.

This is a nice, simple meme all that is required is to highlight the entries on the list that you have done.  Here goes…
1. Started your own blog
2. Slept under the stars
3. Played in a band  – OK, so it was with other 6 year olds in my parent’s lounge under flashing yellow lights, but I say it counts!  I played acoustic guitar and also had a recorder solo

Hmm, so I have done almost half of the things on this list and in most cases I am happy that I have done said things.  Many make me think of things that I did as a kid growing up in a rural area with every freedom you could imagine.  It makes me wish that such freedoms were affordable for kids today, that life were more simple.  Then I remember small town mentality and I am glad I have escaped.
