All The Man That I Need

I have been nominated for the 3-Day Lyric Challenge by talesfromthemindofkristian  who this week has been delighting us with Norwegian folk music…but who normally features top picks from the cream of classic crooners – some of my all-time favourite tunes.  I have always applauded Kristian’s musical choices.

Have a look at Kristian’s post below to see what is involved in this very fun challange:

The Rules:

1 Thank the person who nominated you – thank you Kristian!
2 Share one of your favourite song/lyrics one at a time for three days.
3 Nominate three other bloggers each day. 


I have shared many of my favourite songs in previous posts…but there is room for more I am sure.  As I am soon going to lose him, I am going to make this a Goldfinch themed challenge.

So first up on Day One of The Challenge, is a song that I have been singing to Goldfinch this past weekend.  I sang it to him while walking hand in hand in the autumn sunshine, I sang it to him when we curled up on the sofa relaxing in my little nest, and I sang it to him while he held me close and we danced under a moonlit sky during the otherwise silent hours of Monday morning.

How do you know that you can actually hold a tune? When the man who is holding your hand doesn’t find you an embarrassment and try to shut you down!  Or else he is just really really kind!  Or thinks it’s hilarious to let myself make a fool of myself!  The jury is out on that one!


I used to cry myself to sleep at night
But that was all before he came
I thought love had to hurt to turn out right
But now he’s here
It’s not the same, it’s not the same

He fills me up
He gives me love
More love than I’ve ever seen
He’s all I’ve got,
He’s all I’ve got in this world
But he’s all the man that I need

And in the morning when I kiss his eyes
He takes me down and rocks me slow
And in the evening when the moon is high
He holds me close and won’t let go
He won’t let go

Here Comes The Hot Stepper!

Tuesday…not always the most eventful day.  Yet, my Tuesday is set to be anything but dull.  I am scheduling this post to be published whilst I am helping to set up a charity fashion show.  It will be a very early start.

My tasks are all connected with making sure everything is ready before the start of the show…and helping to dismantle at the end of the day..

During the actual show I am allowed to disappear for a few hours and I intend to take this lap-top and try to catch up with both my writing and my reading.

Apologies for falling way behind…my excuse is Goldfinch.  He was the centre of all my attention at the weekend, my absolute number one priority, because as you know, I am very soon to lose him permanently.

Well…I should head for bed…the fashion gurus I have to work with tomorrow are not the easiest folk to negotiate with.  Some of them are so hilarious(without trying to be) I just want to laugh every time they wave their arms around dramatically and shout directions.
