Short post but still thinking fondly of my recent “staycation” and the song Dignity by Deacon Blue came to mind. The late ’80s were a very fertile time for bands from Scotland and the charts were littered with their successes. 802 more words
Lazy bit of blogging this (for which I apologise) but if like me you listen to the Radio 2 Breakfast Show in the morning, you'll know that live in the studio this morning were Deacon Blue. During my drive to work they performed an acoustic version of the song Dignity and I had an epiphany - Don't worry it wasn't painful and I didn't cause an accident whilst having it, but when I initially wrote this post about the song, it was not from the perspective of ever actually doing what they are singing about, it was more one of those wistful, "Wouldn't that be nice" moments. Now I am thinking, "No, it is totally doable!". I do indeed work for "the council", or in Local Government as we say nowadays, and I have been good and "saved my money" so although it's not necessarily a dinghy called Dignity I hanker after, I think it could be a little house overlooking the sea - "I'll be on my holidays" and everyone else will be "doing their rounds". Thanks Ricky and Co. for helping me firm up that plan for the future, whilst on the way to work this morning!
