Pack up your troubles…

This is a little bit how I feel at the moment: Surrounded by boxes and bags and lacking much furniture, but I still have the ukulele out for a strum!

You guessed it, I’m in the middle of moving home. Because of this it’ll probably be a little quiet on my blog while I pack my life up, relocate, unpack and settle into my new surroundings.

The whole moving thing is daunting, exciting and exhausting to say the least. Not nearly as scary as when I moved from Australia to England, fitting my entire life into one suitcase! It’s amazing how much more stuff I’ve gathered in those few short years… Stay tuned though, I’ll be back!

21 Jump Street (2012)

From the Telegraph: “….meanwhile, in real life, teenage girls reach for geek glasses and tie their hair in buns when they want to go glam, and the male heart throbs don’t play sports, but the ukulele.”

I don’t really remember much about the original 21 Jump Street TV series. As a kid in the late 80’s to early 90’s I didn’t watch much TV and only caught the odd episode, but I do remember that it starred a very young but still very cool looking Johnny Depp!

Happy Australia Day 2012

A massive HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY and shout out to all the Aussie folk out there in ukulele land! I’ve been living abroad for around six years now (time certainly flies) and it’s celebratory days like this that make me miss the sunshine, sand and surf of home. Australia will always be “home” for me.

Keeping this uke related, the guys over at UkeMullum are holding an Australia Day uke night down at the Courthouse Hotel, Corner of Dally and Burringbar Streets, Mullumbimby (New South Wales).

Make sure you download their special Australia Day Songbook and bang out a few good old Aussie tunes for yourself too!

My secret ingredient

When cooking up a storm in the kitchen, my secret weapon for extra tasty gourmet meals is of course a large helping of soulful strumming!

To be honest, that’s not my own kitchen. This photo was taken while I was cooking Christmas dinner away in Devon. At home I have my yellow Vintage uke hung up on the kitchen door so it’s always within easy reach when I’m preparing dinner. As they say, music is the food of love!
