My Past

Memories can be nudged back into view by many things and a couple of songs from my MP3 have opened a window on how I felt during my marriage.

The first is by Cliff Richard and is called '(You Keep Me) Hanging On'. Some of you may recognise the situation he sings about from your past.

The second one's called 'Ain't No Pleasing You' by Chas and Dave...with a (very bad) joke by Kenny Everett at the beginning.

Scars heal, but they don't always fade.

I love you Martin! :)

Aw, Martin, but you're right of course. Someone said to me once, 'what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.' Not sure about that, but music is often the backdrop to what's happening to us. And books and films, whatever floats your boat. Keep writing and keep blogging. It's got me through some rotten times.

Naebsy: Platonically of course. :)

Valentina: I'm not sure things make you stronger, but they certainely leave you more cautious, which is a form of strength I suppose.

Don't be so pedantic old man! ;)

Naebsy: I will if I want to be.
