22nd September
"What's the name of the game
does it mean anything to you
what's the name of the game
can you feel it the way I do
Tell me please
cause I have to know
I'm a bashful child
beginning to grow"
The Name of the Game - Abba

By no means a bashful child but always up for a game!!

"Slipping through my fingers
all the time I try to capture
every minute the feeling in it
slipping through my fingers
all the time do I really see what's
in her mind each time I think
I'm close to knowing she keeps on growing
slipping through my fingers
all the time"
Slipping through my fingers – Abba


Sometimes life goes by so quickly;
it is like water slipping through your fingers.

“He who allows his day to pass by without practicing generosity and enjoying life's pleasures is like a blacksmith's bellows: he breathes but does not live.”

"I don't wanna talk
about the things we've gone through
though it's hurting me now it's history
I've played all my cards
and that's what you've done too
nothing more to say no more ace to play
The winner takes it all
the loser standing small beside the victory
that's her destiny"
The Winner Takes it All – Abba After all the health issues I have had this year,
I certainly am beginning to feel like a winner.
More energy, less pain and people keep telling me I have my sparkle back.
Thank goodness I thought I had lost that sparkle for good! lol

19th September
I was a woman never thinking of others
and my life was so lonely
didn't care for anybody
but then I happened to meet
a begging man in the street
as I turned down his praying
I heard someone saying: "ah -
Treat him well, he is your brother
you might need his help one day
we depend on one another
love him that's the only way
on the road that we're going
we all need words of comfort and compassion
treat him well, he is your brother
love him that's the only way"
He is your brother – Abba

This man is not my brother nor a beggar but he certainly trying to provide his own supper.

"Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime" ~Chinese Proverb

18th September
"I have a dream a song to sing
to help me cope with anything
if you see the wonder of a fairy tale
you can take the future even if you fail
I believe in angels something good in
everything I see I believe in angels
when I know the time is right for me
I'll cross the stream
I have a dream" I Have a Dream – Abba
I often dream a lot whilst out walking.

"You can dance, you can jive
having the time of your life
see that girl, watch that scene
dig in the Dancing Queen"
Dancing Queen –Abba

Following on from my great success as Dick Whittingtons cat I was promoted to the chorus line.
I was often the only one instep. lol.

"We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance". ~Japanese Proverb

Anna says “!This week I have been inspired by the hit musical, blockbusting movie, Mamia Mia!!!! Enjoy.....”
"Tonight the Super Trouper
lights are gonna find me
shining like the sunsmiling, having fun feeling like a number one"
- Abba

I was certainly a trouper in the spot light many years ago.
My portrayal of Dick Whittington's cat was a wonder to behold!!!!
