Hello, Good Evening and Welcome. And all that. I am sad. I am sad for a few reasons – but I’m trying to appreciate that as one door closes, another opens… Why?
1. W has started School today. He did 9am – 12 noon. And I found it hard, because he’s my baby. That’s it now. No more little people in the house, as I go in to nick milk / snacks. No more snuggles n’ cuddles when I fancy them. No more looking at my little person squishing his nose against the window looking cute whilst I’m trying to keep a conversation going about grown up things. I will write a proper blog post about it at some point. But to be fair, I don’t know how to write about how I feel about it right now.
2. Because we’re now into the last week of the Chris Moyles Show. I know that sounds a bit nuts, that I would document it. But I’ve been listening to it for many, many years. The Chris Moyles intro songs have been part of my life for a long time – when I was single and lived on my own, I was working doing an Annual Fund so I’d only start work at 2pm. This meant that I would wake up at 9.30am, lie in bed, listen to Chris and by 10am, I’d decide that actually life was ok as a single bird and that getting up, going to the Gym and being organised was a good thing after all. I found it hard being single, living alone – in my lovely flat and all the brand new kit, wondering what I was doing. Everyone thought it was a good thing to do, but they weren’t there every day, as I woke up with everyone else at work, not knowing what on earth I’d do with myself. So having Chris and his team, there, with the song, that was something to me. It meant something. And now, when I’m en route to a meeting, or doing something where I end up listening to Chris and his team in a morning, I’m transported to a place that’s very different to where I am now. And if you don’t know what I mean, listen on the link, to the start song. It’s the same as what he used to do at the end of his shows. It gives me a tingle.
So that’s that. And even writing that bit doesn’t document it properly, how sad I am that Chris Moyles is moving on, even though I do think it’s the right thing. But that’s that. I’ve at least put something out there.
