Bringing home the books

Since we moved house nearly a year ago, we have had a lot of our stuff left in storage as we weren’t sure where we were going to put things in the new house or if we would even have the room to put everything in.

Day 27 – What makes me feel better

Pick your fave cheesy tunes and just go for it, just make sure your not stood in front of the window while doing it. In the past I have got a few strange looks from people passing by. Especially while car dancing/singing at traffic lights.

Music is quite therapeutic really.
