This week we’ve had music pounding in our heads and our hearts. We finally got to a concert that I think I’d booked tickets for back in December 2019 at the launch of his album Heavy is the Head. It’s not music for the faint hearted and not the kind of thing I normally go for. However with two teenage boys in tow who like to challenge my music tastes! At the time of booking he was hot off the heals of his Glastonbury show and Brit awards, it made for a great Christmas present.
The concert got moved twice, and eventually he made it to Scotland! The boys two years older. One at uni and the youngest now older than the eldest when I bought the tickets. Feels a little crazy saying that! It was a great night and nice to see them bonding, fist pumping and generally soaking up something that had been a long time coming.
One of my highlights had to be the whole audience singing together. Bob Marley’s, don’t worry about a thing in the pre show warm up. Made me think of my dad who was a big Bob fan and can picture him looking down on us.
Has to be said the concert made me feel old given the demographic in the audience! And on that note It’s now 40 weeks until the big birthday that feels like a real marker in the sand life wise. I’m thinking of breaking the 10 weeks into 4 pseudo sprints. Using a little bit of Agile methodology. A way to focus on some pre big 5 ’O’ goals. One of them being to remove the winter/Covid pouch that’s appeared of late.
Trying to eat more of a Mediterranean diet, no pasta, no rice if I can help it. With uni boy back for the Easter break though, these things make good plate fillers and every time I look in the fridge it’s like the locusts have been! So it’s a battle around cooking for a family vs cooking for me. Add to that, I like cooking!
The #WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up hosted by Natalie the Explorer that serves as weekly heart beat and sort of of a mind-dump. Helps me reflect on my week, with a list of achievements, thoughts and rambles normally whilst drinking a beverage probably listening to music.
