Introducing Rumer

Last week as we were driving home from the IOW, this tune was playing on Radio 2 on Ken Bruce, I was mesmerised by the melodious, crystal clear voice which immediately reminded me of Karen Carpenter...

I have just found it on Youtube and the song is her/their debut single to be released 28 August

I hope you like it....I luv it!


  1. Oh to be able to sing so effortlessly...very pure and beautiful... x

  2. Truly beautiful voice and song,
    thank you for sharing it!

  3. Oh I am off to iTunes to find her albums, thank you!!!!!

  4. An effortlessly beautiful voice, and love the song too. How wonderful that here is a recording without riffs, no screaming background, no oversexed writhing dancers or intricate phoney stories expensively filmed to make up for lack of content and talent.

    Lovely. Oh and Saz...tried out the tv/cd and of course it works perfectly.

  5. Wow, I AM impressed. It's been a long time since I heard music I actually LIKE. Yes, Karen Carpenter, definitely.

    I hate to appear dense, this Demi Moore's daughter?

  6. Very pleasant voice, very relaxing.

  7. Daryl...the debut single isnt released until 28th Aug, the album in late Oct 2010...not even on itunes uk yet..

    ethel- No she is a Mixed Brit so no of Bruce and Demi, though same name...

    glad you like her!!

  8. I heard it! had the same reaction!!she sounds wonderful does'nt she?

  9. Oooooh. Fabulous. WIll def be down-loading. I lurv those harmonies.

  10. Simply lovely! So relaxing to listen to her.

  11. I used to love Karen Carpenter and still love to hear her voice.

  12. I heard her interviewed by Chris Evans the other morning, and the song is fantastic. She seemed a lovely lady, and I hope the rest of her work is a melodious and beautiful as this.

  13. I am loving that song, too. I also thought it was an old Karen Carpenter, but no. Did you notice that Ken played a Carpenter tune a bit later to compare because so many people had said it sounded like her? (I've been varnishing and painting for a fortnight - Radio 2 is my soundtrack to decorating)

  14. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, now you are talking my kind of music!

  15. Sara

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
