Fill your boots - but not with mud!

Hello everyone!
I'm back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Paul here, I hope you are all well.
I have been reading the blog to make sure you have all been behaving.

Anyway, I have just had a call from Barbara & Dave.
They are in the middle of a muddy field......... 

Mmmmmm I wonder which one?

So no internet access.

Since it is the Glastonbury Weekend,
Barbara has decided on a "rocking" offer you can't refuse!

The Musical Score and Musical Instruments Groovi Plates.

They should be £15.98 but from now until midnight Sunday
(when Glastonbury finishes)
you can get them for just £12
(Click HERE)

So lets "get down" and "Groovi" and have a look at some of the Design Teams artwork for some inspiration.........

Linda Page

Susan Moran

Maria Simms

Jane Telford


Linda Page

To me, music is the language for everyone.....
We all have a favourite song, group, artist.....
It is amazing how a song can trigger a memory......
I love that music can bring everyone together in unison...

Dare I show my age and say that I used to love Sunday evenings,
listening to the radio
waiting to hear who was going to be that weeks
 No.1 in the singles chart!

Right, better get on!

Lots of love

Paul xx

  3. Now, Paul, did you sit there recording the top ten every week on cassette? If you haven't, then you haven't lived. It is good to know that Barbara and Dave are right away from the stress again. It will do them so much good to just live. Meanwhile, I hope the sale does not cause too much stress for you at Clarity Towers. We need you full of energy and calmness for the Retreats. xxx Maggie

  6. I remember listening to my little transistor radio that I would place on an old sweet tin to amplify the sound and I would be laying in bed listening to Radio Luxembourg. Those were the days - all very high tech! I hope Barb has those wellies on. Much love Jayne

  7. Yes I used to always listen to the top 10, great when it was my favourite group or singer who made it to No 1 spot. Top of the Pops was another firm favourite. I am very tempted by these plates and I have not got them so even better. Hope you over your migraine. xx

  16. Thanks Paul! Love these plates. I still listen to the top hits but on satellite radio from the 60's 70's and 80s. Brings back so many memories!
    One quick question which i hope you see:Do you have a time frame when the case/cover for the light panel will be available for sale. Anxiously waiting.

    I hope Barbara and Dave aren't 'knee high' in mud, but it did seem much drier today on the morning's news than it did yesterday, I know they will all have a good time.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  27. Hi Paul, I remember listening to the charts on a Sunday. Somewhere in my loft is a box of cassette tapes recorded from the top 20. Used to leave it set up in my bedroom and run in and out to hit pause during the talking. Everyone was ordered to be silent outside my bedroom. Thanks for the sale offer. Hope you've recovered from your migraine now. Xx

  28. Hi Paul,
    Thanks for doing this today. The offer is fantastic and if I didn't already have the plates I would certainly have ordered them.i love them both I must say. I was another one who used to religiously listen on a Sunday to the chart show to see what was number 1. As well as taping, we also used to try to write down all of the lyrics so we could learn the songs. So you're not really showing your age!! Hope Barb and Dave are having a great time. Love Alison x

    1. Hi to my lovely blog friends,
      Been a scorcher here today, in fact too hot for me. We were sitting on the patio at 4 pm and the temperature was 97.3.!! Did a spot of retail therapy in Newcastle but again, it was so hot in the shops, I was glad to get home to have a shower. I don't think my body has had time to acclimatise to hot weather yet! Sorry for all of you who've had the horrendous storms and I hope that you are safe and well. Sending love and hugs, Alison xxx

  29. Thank you for being the go between Paul and a great offer on the musical groovi plates and love those samples, also hope Barbara and Dave are managing yo keep the boots on their feet with all the mud, but I'm sure they will be enjoying the music anyway. x

  30. Welcome back Paul. Great samples from the team and great offer. Hope Barbara and Paul aren't in too much mud but then that is part of Glastonbury. Hopefully no storms tonight.

  31. I remember that Paul, Pick of the Pops, started on BBC Light programme then moved to Radio One, Alan Freeman was the host I remember with his phrase of "Pop Pickers". I used to listen to that then nip down to ring my boyfriend in the red phone box on the corner, if I had any money left I'd call in at the Chippy for a six of chips. How times have changed xx

  32. Hi Paul, thanks for picking up the blogging reins at short notice, love the beautiful arty Groovi samples. Yep music is so evocative, love watching some of the music channels, especially 70's and 80's. Have a great day all. Hope Barb and Dave are not too muddy. Bx

  33. Aha but do you remember trying to tape it without getting the background noise of your Dad yelling up the stairs that tea was ready? Took me 3 weeks to get Madonnas all the way through!

Thank you for your kind messages and I hope you get inspiration from my ramblings.
