Mother in law last year on her 99th Birthday.

Today is Sunday and every Sunday we have mother in law over for the day and cook her a dinner or take her out to lunch at a pub.

Today we are cooking so I am busy. We also had to pop over to her house yesterday to sort out her phone…which when we arrived the phone was miraculously okay. Hey it’s only a 24 mile round trip. Today hubby will be busy driving 48miles on the four trips to and throw.

It keeps him busy, it keeps me and it keeps her busy too, as she likes to go out. Did I mention she is 100yrs old this year. We are busy arranging a big 100th Birthday Tea Party for her at a local Afternoon Tea Venue.

Anyway she doesn’t like it if I get my phone out when she is here , she likes to keep me busy giving all my attention to her! 😁

So I have to go now and check the dinner 💜 Have a good day and keep busy.

Song Lyric Sunday: The Good, the Not Sure, The Brilliant. Duet.

Our brilliant host Jim Adams is attending a funeral this weekend so we are all here on our honour to keep the dream alive . This week for Song Lyric Sunday Jim has asked us to use the prompt Duet.

A duet is a musical composition for two performers in which the performers sing in unison and have equal importance to the piece.  Most people think of a duet as one part being a melody and a secondary part that harmonizes with that melody.  As long as there has been singing, there has probably been some kind of duet music.

My first choice was without doubt Barcelona with the beautiful Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe.

The song reflects Mercury’s love of opera with his high notes and Caballé’s operatic vocals, backed by a full orchestra. Originally released in 1987, it was one of the biggest hits of Mercury’s solo career, reaching number eight in the UK Singles Chart. After Mercury’s death in 1991, it was featured at the 1992 Summer Olympics, after which the track climbed even higher, peaking at number two in the UK, the Netherlands and New Zealand.

In 2004, BBC Radio 2 listed Barcelona at number 41 in its Sold On Song Top 100. More information here.


My second video is Delores O’Riordan and Luciano Pavarotti . In September 1995, O’Riordan joined the famed opera singer in Modena, Italy to cover the beloved hymn.  The performance at Parco Novi Sad was part of a ten-concert series between 1992 and 2003 known as ‘Pavarotti & Friends’ which raised money for humanitarian causes. O’Riordan and Pavarotti’s 1995 concert was in aid of the children of Bosnia affected by the war.

As lovely as this duet and as much as I love Delores, from her Cranberries days I feel she was overwhelmed by the big voice of Luciano Pavarotti.


And Finally I am bending the rules slightly because this is my favourite, favourite duet? This is Elton John singing with Queen and the voice of our lovely Freddie singing Bohemian Rhapsody. But then at 3.20 minutes in to the video Axel Rose bounds in like a whirling dervish. He absolutely, in my mind, knocks the ball out of the park! Then at the end Axel and Elton bring the house down with their harmony of the last verse…I adore it! A little bit of gossip, apparently Axel refused to rehearse and his mad entrance was as much a suprise to Elton and Queen! I bet Freddie was smiling down loving it!

Have a Great Sunday
