(I love that Sophie Ellis-Bextor song)
If (when) you come to visit us, you'll notice a few things: 1. There will often be the smell of freshly-baked goods in the air; 2. I will probably apologise for the chaotic mess that will greet you; and 3. There will be music playing. Nothing loud or fancy, just something playing in the background to add a little ambiance and atmosphere to the place.
Why am I talking about this? Besides the fact that I needed a 499th post (the next one's the big one!) we have been to a couple of social events lately that have been okay but really could have benefited from some background music. Music is the ultimate ice breaker and helps to lighten any mood in any situation. This is definitely one of those things that Hubs and I can't understand why other people don't think the same way as us.
I've even been at people's houses and suggested "Hey do you want to put a CD on?" Is that rude? I'm not saying that these events have been awkward or boring, I'm simply saying having music on as well can make a social situation even better. Like adding a spoonful of milo to your coffee, or putting butter on your corn. It just adds that little something that makes it extra good.
That's pretty much all I have to say about that. And now, to keep you excited, here's a fun video we took of Chanbe on Saturday night (oh yeah, we're party animals) feeding himself. And my voice is in there as usual, laughing my guts up. Oh, and see if you can pick the song/band playing in the background!
Enjoy! And I'll see you soon at number 500!
