Sing along

A little over a week ago more than 100 million viewers watched the European Song Contest.
One must take it for what it is .. the search for a catchy (usually very cheesy) summer theme song ....
 glam, glitz and loads of flashing lights. This was how Abba was found mind you. 
I admit after years of teasing those near and dear for taking the time to watch it.. this year we ordered pizza and poured some drinks... must admit it is a laugh (sadly no Terry Wogan hosting here). 
The kids watched some of it too and these are their top choices...
(note of caution- even if you hate the song it is so catchy sometimes that you find yourself humming it)

My little magpie likes this one (Norway, yes really) Haba Haba

and the boy child likes this one Lipstick

Desctructo is split between  Maldova's 

and Denmark's pretty boy New Tomorrow

GO ahead, have a laugh if you missed that eventful evening!

The winner was the ultimate Eurovision sap (see here if you like).

My personal favourites were - Bosnia Herzegovina  and Switzerland's. 

Oh and Serbia's perky number (click here).

A Mini poll
Which do you like? (none does not count)

Finding peace

an old church yard
scattered with gnarled old olive trees
here is the sense of calm I have been craving
drinking in the sight
sweet secret corners of Lija 
starting to see the light.. only some weeks left
till then it's busy hectic days... last weeks of school term for the children and myself 
Hope your start to this new week has been 
blessed with tiny moments of peace too.

hallways of an old Maltese villa... 
calming colours no?
