a Berenstain moment...

Have you ever read the Berenstain Bears in the Dr Suess beginner book series?  I read them when I was little and now my kids love them too.

 Papa Bear is always telling his son how to do things and keep out of danger, but always ends up hurting himself along the way.

I had a 'Papa Bear' moment today.  I'm always telling my kids "watch what you're doing", "pay attention" and "look where you are going".  All the time like a stuck record.  And then....

I sewed through my finger!!

And ouch, it really hurt!!

I was sewing, and looking at my magazine, and looking at my phone and them BAM!

One sore finger and a broken sewing needle.

Always practice what you preach!

Love Me Do

50 years ago this modest little song with it's unmistakable harmonica hook was released by a little-known band from Liverpool.

Who would have imagined way back then how successful The Beatles would become?  My Dad is a huge Beatles fan and I grew up listening to all of their music.  We had The Beatles box set collection of vinyl records and I loved nothing more than playing records on our big Panasonic Technics record player with surround sound.  I don't think I'll ever tire of their music. Do you like The Beatles?  Do you have a favourite song?  If you like you can listen here to Love Me Do.
