My best summertime memory this year was…TOTALLY easy one this week – driving a for-real steam train on my 30th, as arranged by my WONDERFUL family. Read more about it here, in my Thirty Things of Thankful Birthday Edition.
I was delighted and honoured to be invited to guest post over at DJ Jazzy Jen’s, as part of her ‘Raised on the Radio’ series. I discussed the massive impact on my musical life by the school bus (of all things!), why I hate Gilbert & Sullivan, and learned how I ended up embodying the term ‘Radio Slut’.
While I’m on the topic of music, and bearing in mind that I’m in *totally* the wrong generation (music-wise), this has been on a loop for me this week. Enjoy 🙂
I’ve been hearing a lot this week about Blogger Idol, which sounds like such a fun idea (though limited to entrants from the US and Canada only (boo, hiss)) so I’ll be watching my friends from the sidelines, cheering them on with my glitteriest pom-poms as they compete for the GLORY.

I learned a new word today, thanks to a tweet by Dictionary.com, highlighting one of their articles.
The word is ‘Komorebi’ and is Japanese for ‘sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees. Beautiful.
We’re having guests to stay this weekend, from Irish Ireland, and while I’m really excited about seeing them, I’m not looking forward to all the housework tomorrow – there’s a lot of it in order to feel halfway decent about welcoming them into our home! BUT, the thought of their arrival (and my subsequent embarrassment and stress if it’s not done) is a great motivator, so I have HIGH HOPES that it will be fine and dandy.
