busking, street life

Good times

I dashed out of town, hot footing it with my trolley (no mean feat!) and had 10 minutes to spare … sitting outside of the school in the glorious shade and cool of my van playing my guitar. How many people can say that after work, they happily carry on with ‘work’ just because…. I’m so lucky to have the life I have.

It’s been so hot today (Yey!!) that I’ve needed to tune the guitar just about every song, and the little one needed sunscreen at school so I’ve ended up with a proper comedy suntan!

Anyway I’ve been working on The Smiths, Please please please let me get what I want. I’m playing it in D with the capo on the second unlike the original … we’ll see, I might yet change my mind, Key of D chords suit my guitar better somehow… anyhow here is a slightly out of tune snippet of my pre-school-pick-up noodlings….

busking, street life

Windy City – heaven knows Iā€™m miserable now šŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚

As I unpacked my stuff from the (shaking) van I was hit by a gust of wind and a load of stuff went bowling down the car park. Worse still my hair was blowing all over the place.šŸ˜±šŸ˜³ I CANNOT STAND HAIR IN MY FACE!!! That’s the hole point of the hairdo!

I checked the met office and in the time it had taken to drive into town it had gone from 10% light rain maybe at 12 to 80% heavy rain at 10. So I’ve waited a while in the van and, Here comes the rain again ( love that song).

Not fancying donning the wet weather gear and tying my gear to a a lamppost I’m sacking off the busking today and going home to work on a medley of my favourite songs by The Smiths ….. actually there’s only 2 songs so technically it’s a segue I think … Not a massive fan of The Smiths – (I certainly never had a T Shirt) they write some great music and I love Morrissey’s voice. Please please please let me get what I want and last night I dreamed that somebody loved me are lovely songs … I’ll see if I can get it to work as both are tantalisingly short songs…

So anyway back home for a nice cup of tea ā˜•ļø
