Chit-chat it’s the weekend extra

Well… here’s an extra post for you this weekend. 😁 This post is in addition to the one I aired this morning. So I hope you enjoy reading this extra post and commenting here too, as well as at my earlier post aired today. 🙂

I realise I need to stock up on my own music dvd’s, after watching the neighbours collection. I have forgotten just how much I like my music this way. The last time I had a music collection to watch was when I had VHS tapes. Remember those?

I intend to buy the following as a start to my music dvd collection at some point, second hand, when things settle:

  • Queen Live at Wembly
  • Bon Jovi Crush
  • Take That The Circus Live

These were in amongst other music dvd’s that my neighbour lent me. I played in particular Bon Jovi, on more than one occasion. It felt like having my own concert. I was dancing away at times.

And just when I thought again I must have watched all of the neighbours collections after dropping the others off at his door today, while observing social distancing, I have a few more dvd’s to watch. 😁

He has also lent me some cd’s. They are all by the same group called, Apocalyptica. I have never heard of these until now.
As he knows I like 2 Cellos, he thought I might like to listen to these. I am playing one now and I am enjoying it.

What’s your preference when it comes to listening to music? Watching, or listening? Or is it both?

You will remember in My views for today that I contacted my mum’s social worker. She got back to me the next day to tell me her case was closed. This was because as there is no plan of discharging her yet because she is not well enough, means she is not able to support her. When her case was closed, I do not know long ago this was and I don’t intend to ask, because I know I will be fuming. I expect it was closed some time ago. But what happened to keep updating me when necessary that I gave permission for? She pointed out the ward are aware of her finances etc. That’s the only part I don’t have faith with on the ward, due to what was coming through mum’s mailbox, before I stopped playing my part, as it was obvious they had not been informed. But as I said to mum last year, that final time I seen her. I’m done. It’s her mess.
There has supposedly been another referral made, but she’s unsure of the details. Someone would contact me in the future, as this social worker is leaving. With also this Coronavirus, means also priorities have changed.

It doesn’t surprise me that mum is not well to be discharged and although I know I have not seen her since November, I still don’t see that situation changing. It’s all down to my mum. I am watching from the sidelines still. I have to continue doing what I need to do to keep myself well and safe. It’s not what I ever envisioned. But this is, what it is.

  1. That’s good that they’re not looking at discharging your mom anytime soon.

    I rarely listen to music at home, but always have it playing when I’m in my car.

  2. I like Bon Jovi too. I listen to classical & jazz mostly on my favorite radio station. I love to dance especially when the latin jazz comes on.😊

    1. Hello and thank you for commenting. Another Bon Jovi fan, which is nice to hear. 🙂

      I am more flexible with my music than I used to be. But I still can’t stand the heavy metal kind.

  3. Music is a great way to sooth the soul and relieve stress, so smart that you are doing this. I need to start playing music more for our mental health. Good also that your mom stays put, Coronavirus changes our whole life structures. So nice of your neighbor to share movies. Stay safe out there and have a beautiful weekend.

    1. Thank you. I hope you are having a lovely weekend too.
      I don’t play my cd’s often like I used to. But when I do, I can still enjoy, but
      am not always focused with it. I think that changed when I became deaf. But if I start building my music in my dvd, I just know I would play them more often. It has been lovely of my neighbour lending me his dvd’s since last year and now also his cd’s which were all Apocalyptica. I enjoyed all those. The dvd’s which have been mainly films, really helped me to escape. Especially last year when I wasn’t mentally good.

  4. Love it, you dancing away to Bon Jovi 🙂 I loved his music too. Take that and Queen also but I still love all my oldies like stuff from the sixties. Having said that, I love all music from Opera to country & western, Reggae and Panpipes – so you’ll see I have an eclectic taste and I prefer listening!

    It’s good to hear that your mum won’t be discharged any time soon. You keep yourself well Liz. xxx

    1. I plan to look out for my own music dvd’s via Cex, when I know I get paid. It may have to wait. But Bon Jovi first in my list if I have to narrow it down. 🙂

      1. I don’t have Elvis in my collection, as I know it’s not something I would play regular. But I do like to hear him regardless. 🙂

  5. Sending lotsa hugs…
    We’ve lotsa tapes at home, that I’m not sure if we will ever get rid of.
    Love, light, and glitter

      1. I like listening to hopeful songs that aren’t too christ based. Think of against the current, cimorelli, evanescence, ashes remain, mandisa, Jason grey. Rise against. There’s a really nice song ashes of eden – breakin Benjamin.
        Oh I also like some of Rachel plattern, or I used to. Allesia cara, demi lovato. A lot of the songs I like fit where I was, I don’t really have any music that I would necessarily choose today. They all gave me hope or like migraine – twenty one pilots – reflected what was my world. There’s also keep climbing – abraham fried, I can be – Yaakov shwekey.
        Okay, this was a really long ramble…
        What do you like?
        Love, light, and glitter

      2. I am out of touch with todays music. But I like Evanescence, 2 Cellos, Apocalyptica (after discovering them recently from borrowing neughbours cd’s), Take That, Bon Jovi, Andre Rieu, Michael Jackson, The Script, Olly Murs, Robbie Williams, Guns N’ Roses, to name a few. 🙂
