My apologies I have missed two blog posts. I have been otherwise engaged with a job application and the subject of today’s blog, wedding music.
My wonderful dad is getting married this valentine’s day to a lady I have called Stepmum for years as they have been together for years and it was easier to assume marriage and call her my stepmum. So my Dad decided to make an honest woman of her (finally) and after proposing to her on the beach at Galway Bay, Ireland (he got down on one knee bless him), they made plans for the big wedding. My three year old son will be page boy, my daughter a bridesmaid and my husband the best man.
So while my husband plans his speech, I ticked off one big thing my dad had tasked me with – uploading the music to my phone for the ceremony.
My Dad is a big tease. He has teased me all my life. In fact, he has gone out of his way to make me squirm and wind me up (I take this as an endearing quality of his). For example, when I was 6 I had to perform a prominent role in a school play. He made sure he got a front row seat and then proceeded to pull faces at me through the entire performance to put me off my lines.
So, when he assigned me the task of downloading the music, I was extremely tempted to come up with an alternative playlist. In fact if my husband hadnt stopped me, I probably would have done.
I was particularly keen on interrupting Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’, used at the Royal Wedding with Guns N Roses’ ‘U could be mine’. Heavy metal guitar followed by the lines, ‘I’m a cold heartbreaker, fit to burn and I’ll rip your heart in two and I’ll leave you lying on the bed’. ….Great way to start married life..
I’ll think it….but I won’t do it…..promise…..but if someone donates money to Unicef, I can be convinced…
This blog is for Unicef.
Thanks for reading.
