SONG LYRIC SUNDAY: Chasing Cars

Okay  it is  Sunday  again  and  time  for  Helen Espinosa’s  SONG LYRIC SUNDAY. 

Today I have  picked  a song  from another  of  my  favourite  groups Snow Patrol. The  song  I have  chosen  is  about  being  so in love  with  someone  and  just  wanting  to be  there  with  them in  that  moment,  all  your  life.

I am sure  we have  all been in  love like that  at one  or moments in our lives. To love  so much it hurts……….  It  can be  any kind of love and  my  there are  so  many kinds of love.

 

and  the lyrics

“Chasing Cars”

We’ll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don’t need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don’t quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They’re not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

Let’s waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we’re told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that’s bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they’re all I can see

I don’t know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Two pairs of shoes

IMG_20150815_131100042_HDR [493898]

Shoes to grow in to 

Tiny tiny  little  man

Fill these  shoes, you can.

Seeing  your  shoes

And  daddy’s  too

Makes  me  wonder

What will you  do

When you grow  and

Begin to venture  yonder.

You  will see the  world

Through eyes of  wonder.

OH! my darling  Newbie  boy

You  bring  me  so much joy.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask if any of you remember Cat Forsley she had a blog on wordpress . She is a music maker and is in a musical partnership with Ashton Price known as “The City Rumbles Underneath “ they have made several videos . Cat stopped her blog a while back because she was so busy with music and commitments that she just could not cope , I kept her email address and kept in touch occasionally. Well imagine my delight when Wednesday morning while I was at the gym I looked up at the screen and saw ” The City Rumbles Underneath” Hearts Expire come up on the screen. I was so excited I stopped my treadmill and rushed over to tell some of the friends also at the gym that I know that singer I know Cat!

I emailed her and told her the news she was delighted and she also said they were having more success over her in the UK than in their home Canada.
Here is the video I saw at the gym.

Thursday’s Pal

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE I would tell you that I had a good afternoon on Thursday visiting a friend  who was at home doing a 4 day  dog sitting stint  for her son  while he was away . We  spent a lovely afternoon chatting and   looking after this charming if not huge  chap! He kept us very  busy demanding we play  ball with  him! Such a lovely  dog only  one problem he likes  to nibble, your  arms, your legs! Only  gentle  tiny  nibbles  but at 20 months old  and  with sharp  teeth he did manage to bruise my arm!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE Ask you if you’d like another cuppa  or another  slice of cake or biscuit even, they are  all home made and totally calorie free! Everything here is!
Friday was Pilates  then shopping and cooking  nothing special  but Saturday  well ! The Newbie, my son and his wife, visiting  my friend and her hubby and dogs, a walk by the river followed by a glorious sunset  are some of my favourite  things  and to get them all in one day is just so wonderful.
The Newbie  and parents  came round for lunch, they tried out the high chair  and cot we had procured. The husband  had lovingly painted  up the cot and  I  had cleaned  up high chair.   Both were a success ! After they left  the husband picked  some of our crop of tomatoes then we headed over  to see our friends  and their lovely dogs, when we left there  we went for a walk along the river . It was lovely in the late afternoon, Autumn sun glinting off of  the river. Then on our way  home  we saw  some amazing  skies!   Here are some photos!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask you if you would  like another  cuppa, or  another cake . I’d  tell you I have really  come to enjoy  these chats  and I’d  love  to hear  what you would  tell me. Please feel free to stay  as long  as  you like  and don’t  forget  to visit  Paul’s  post  now  while  you are  here!   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: Cars, cats, coffee, and a Newbie.

Welcome, welcome again  how are  you all? The weather though  still warm for this time of year is becoming very damp  and several  mornings this week as I have headed  for the gym it has been cold damp  and foggy. So it is on with the virtual  space heaters and with  the help of  Paul  we have moved  some comfy sofas and armchairs into the marquee, well we may as well spoil ourselves.

Now  what  would  you like to eat and drink thanks  to Paul  we have  every type of coffee and tea  anyone  could possibly  request  and a few  that I quite  frankly would  be  very happy  to sit on the self  talk  about  obscure  and smelly!! 🙂  As for the cakes and pastries  well they have grown in range  since  we have been enjoying  these get together’s  and they  are all free and even better totally calorie  free!! So come on in sit  down  where ever  you fancy, relax  and let’s  have a nice  coffee/ tea break.

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  I would say  what a difference a week  makes! This  time last week I was still in the Loire  Valley France. Sighs! Well we got  home last Saturday/ Sunday morning  after a long  but fun day travelling. Back to reality  talk about  hit  the ground  running. Washing, ironing, middle son  having car problems , eldest  son off on trip,   youngest son  and family  to see, dogs  to walk and real life to  get on with ! So it was a good job it had  had such a restful  and lovely  holiday   because today  I feel as if it was a dream. A beautiful dream, one I hope to repeat!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:   As I mention earlier  the weather has taken a sharp  autumnal turn punctuated by the fact  that we had got used to the higher temperatures  we had enjoyed in France! My early  morning trips  to the gym have necessitated   me digging out  a warmer hoodie   and  longer leggings  and brisk up in the step of the pace. I would  mention the fact  that I could not  be lazy  and jump in my car  because, also  as mentioned  above  number two son  has car trouble! While  we were away  his little car  gave up  the ghost …deceased… dead ..it is no more.  The situation meant  he needed to get to and from work  and so he borrowed mine . This has left  me dependant on Shanke’s Pony  ( an  old English  Term for walking ) . Luckily  my husband has his own car  so we were not marooned!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I have to say the afore  mentioned husband  has done a sterling “Dad” job  of helping  the number two  son out  he has scoured  the net  and found  a brilliant  deal  for the lad, lets  hope he appreciates all his dad’s hard  work. All things  being well  touch wood and fingers crossed  he should collecting his  new car  towards  the end of  next week …result  I shall get  mine  back !! My husband  has also  been very  busy  walking  two guide  dogs  who  he loves  a great  deal . He takes  them out  for their recreation . He loves to see the younger one  running after  her ball  and thundering around  the field  enjoying  her short  moments of freedom.

Also  he cut  both our lawns  and kind soul  that  he is  he also cut  the house  next door’s lawn as the owners  were away  on  holiday , hopefully  they will be pleased on their return .

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  I would have to tell you that  all my  brothers  and sisters  bar one  have birthdays this month!  I was mortified  to realize  that I was late  sending  my  eldest sister’s card … so  mortified  that  on my return I rang  her up and wished her happy Birthday  and told her  that  her card  was going to be a tad late!!: Just   for her to tell that  I was a day early! With all the travelling I had got the dates mixed up…. her card  was still late. Not  wishing  to be late again  I posted all the other cards  at once feeling  better  early  than late! I actually  think it was very inconsiderate  of  my dear  departed  parents  to have us all bar one born  in the same month! It  must of  been very difficult  for them to manage  a presents  for everyone!  As for the odd one out  did  they pick a sensible  month for her?…..December!! Do you have a large or a small family, did the amount of siblings  you had  determine  the size  of  your family! I am sure  everyone  has  a busy  birthday  month which is yours?

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  Where are  my  manners would  you like another cup of coffee/tea or  perhaps  a scrummy hot  chocolate  with all the trimmings , chocolate  and  vanilla   with cream and marshmallows or plain if  you prefer very warming  these  Autumnal  days. What  did you say , too fattening ?  not here  no you are forgetting  everything  here is calorie free  and you can have as much as you like!

Now  we did have a sad thing this week, Thursday  lunchtime  there was a knock  at our  door and when I answered it  there a sad looking lorry  driver. He asked if  we had a cat,  as he had just seen a car knock one off of its feet. It was laying in the road  by  his lorry. We grabbed  a towel  and rushed  out by  the time  we had crossed  the lawns (our houses  lay  back from the road  and all have large lawns) and  we had to cross one and a half lawns. We found  another driver who had also stopped and had  followed  the cat  who had  by  now crawled into  our  neighbour’s front garden. None of us  knew  what to do  we covered  the cat  with the towel I was despatched  to find  a cat basket,  we had  given  ours  away  last  year  thinking  we would  never  need one  again.

Sadly by  the time I had  return   with  a cat carrier  the cat  was sadly  dead.  My husband  and our  neighbour  took the cat  to the vets  sadly  it was not chipped and despite our  best efforts  asking around  we cannot find  the cat’s owner. ….

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE:  I say  that  there was an added bonus  in this busy  week. Our  very  beautiful daughter in law  popped into see us early  evening  mid week with the Newbie. Well  we had  not seen  him  for nearly  a fortnight  and we were delighted  to see  them both. It is  amazing  how  fast  he had changed! He was so delightful  full of  smiles  and giggles  and so alert and interested in everything. I am so in awe  at  the beauty of  the little being  that  is our  grandchild.  I would  never of believed  less than a year ago  that a tiny  soul like  the Newbie  could  lift  my  soul in this way!

IF WE WERE HAVING COFFEE: I would ask you if you would  like another  cuppa, or  another cake . I’d  tell you I have really  come to enjoy  these chats  and I’d  love  to hear  what you would  tell me. Please feel free to stay  as long  as  you like  and don’t  forget  to visit  Paul’s  post  now  while  you are  here!   If we were having Coffee  Original idea  from  http://parttimemonster.wordpress.com/
