The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern

The Night Circus materialises in the middle of the night and opens it’s gates at 12am. Noone knows when or where it will appear nor for how long it will stay.

Loved this book…it was excellently visual, so much so that it was almost as if you could feel, smell, see, taste and experience all the things the characters could…there were quite a few really strong characters and a number sub plots within it which kept it moving quite quickly. An intricate storyline that was intriguing from the very beginning. Magical

Fabulous!

The courtyard of the Monastery was beautiful, the light bouncing off the intricate detail of the pillars. The Chapel was one of the most beautiful i’ve ever seen with an amazing portrait of Saint Paula and her nuns.

Had great fun today!

I co-host a local radio programme on a Sunday and although it had been suggested that I do a show of my own i took these suggestions as something that was never going to actually happen and as a bit of a joke (afterall, who, in their right mind would seriously let me do a show of my own? I put my foot in it so often eg….i constantly say words that are not permitted on air…nipples, shit, balls, Holy Mother of Christ – that one was new to me too).

TODAY my co presenter and owner of the station walked in at 2.50 as i was settling into my 2nd hour by adjusting ear phones and looking over local topics and said:
“Right Scarlet you’re on your own from 3 o clock baby.”
After laughing hysterically for about 10 seconds I realised that YES he was indeed going to feck off and leave me on my own. Doing the desk, music, talking, requests …everything. I had about 10 minutes to panic and realise that i hadn’t listened to any of the things about working the desk over the last couple of months. However, it turned out well…i managed to only play 1 song in the following 2 hours that had swear words in it….yes. That was a lesson i learned while actually listening to the song as it was playing on air on a Sunday afternoon…..thankfully the listeners couldn’t hear the: “Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….Holy feckin crap he’s going to kill me!”
As it happened, it turned out to be great fun and a wonderful learning experience and I got great feed back so i now have my own show and am allowed to bring in guests and such. Whoo hoo!

BRUSSELS

Loved the Cathedral, the light shining on it in the evening time was just gorgeous.

BRUGES

Absolutely beautiful. Every street is like walking onto a film set or looking at a postcard. So much to see and i enjoyed this little city more than Brussels. Canal boat rides and a tour via horse and cart were the highlights….especially stopping round Minnewater, which was stunning.

Brussels

About time too. Have meant to get here long before now. I loved round Grand Place (so ornate and colourful and with a house Victor Hugo lived in) and down round the old town streets.

Got to try a couple of glasses of beer…very tasty and extremely strong.

I've Never Been To Me - Charlene

I’ve Never Been To Me by Charlene

Hey lady, you lady, cursing at your life
You’re a discontented mother and a regimented wife
I’ve no doubt you dream about the things you’ll never do
But, I wish someone had talked to me
Like I wanna talk to you…..

Oh, I’ve been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to me

Please lady, please lady, don’t just walk away
‘Cause I have this need to tell you why I’m all alone today
I can see so much of me still living in your eyes
Won’t you share a part of a weary heart that has lived a million lies….

Oh, I’ve been to Nice and the Isle of Greece while I’ve sipped champagne on a yacht
I’ve moved like Harlow in Monte Carlo and showed ‘em what I’ve got
I’ve been undressed by kings and I’ve seen some things that a woman ain’t supposed to see
I’ve been to paradise, but I’ve never been to me

Sometimes I’ve been to crying for unborn children that might have made me complete
But I took the sweet life, I never knew I’d be bitter from the sweet
I’ve spent my life exploring the subtle whoring that costs too much to be free
Hey lady…...
I’ve been to paradise, (I’ve been to paradise)
But I’ve never been to me

(I’ve been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run)
I’ve been to paradise, never been to me
(I’ve been to Nice and the isle of Greece while I’ve sipped champagne on a yacht)
I’ve been to paradise, never been to me
(I’ve been to cryin’ for unborn children that might have made me complete)
I’ve been to paradise, never been to me
(I’ve been to Georgia and California, and anywhere I could run)
I’ve been to paradise, never been to me

WHATEVER LOLA WANTS (LOLA GETS) - Sarah Vaughan (because I like her version)

Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets
And little man, little Lola wants you
Make up your mind to have
(Make up you mind to have)
No regrets (no regrets)
Recline yourself
Resign yourself, you’re through

I always get, what I aim for
And your heart and soul
Is what I came for

Whatever Lola wants (Lola wants)
Lola gets (Lola gets)
Take off your coat
Don’t you know you can’t win
You’re no exception to the rule
I’m irresistible you fool .. give in
(Give in, you’ll never win)

Whatever Lola wants
Lola gets

[Instrumental Interlude]

I always get, what I aim for
And your heart and soul
Is what I came for

Whatever Lola wants (Lola wants)
Lola gets (Lola gets)
Take off your coat
Don’t you know, you can’t win

You’re no exception to the rule
I’m irresistible you fool … give in
(Give in, you’ll never win)

Using this as a solo burlesque routine at the minute and really enjoying it :)
