Best Friend Stories #LifeThisWeek #FridayReflections


picture prompt for Friday Reflections

Friends come in many shapes and sizes and there are so many best friend stories tucked away in memory, too many to relate.

But the best way I thought was to dedicate a song to each friend. So here goes.

For V - this is our song "You Got A Friend" by Carole King. We were in standard 10 when V's parents migrated to the US. She gave me a calendar with the words of this song. I still have that calendar in a box somewhere. Even across the miles it's as if there are no miles between us, my very special friend.

For R - I chose "When I Need You" by Leo Sayer R and I were in school together and at University. There are so many songs that could be dedicated to her but this is the one I chose in memory of those Uni days when two particular boys ruled our hearts.

For N - I chose "Sweet and Innocent" by Donny Osmond because this brings back memories of the young schoolgirls we were with our pigtails. N - still very sweet, perhaps not so innocent (I mean that in a nice way).

For A - I chose "I'll Meet You Halfway" by David Cassidy. A was a David Cassidy fan so it's most appropriate to choose a DC number and this is my favourite one.

For A2 - Whenever I think of A2 during our teenage years, I remember the songs by Lena Zavaroni, so for A2 I chose "Ma He's Making Eyes At Me". A2 threw the best parties ever and we had so much fun.

For S D R and myself - The gang of 4 at Uni - I chose "My Heart Will Go On" by Celine Dion - Still in touch with each other, still as if we were never apart even though S is in London, D in Mumbai, and R and myself in NZ but in different cities.

Hope you enjoyed my best friend stories told through songs. I won't be sharing any pictures because I'm not sure they would want their pics splashed across the web.

Remembering the good times is what I love about life this week. The memories always make me smile and recalling those moments make me feel like I'm there all over again.

I was going to vlog this but unfortunately ran out of time.

What's a best friend story that you can never forget - share in the comments below.

The Last Thing I Bought #vlog #chaiwithsuzy #SuzysIlation

At #LifeThisWeek we've been asked to share the last thing we bought.

Last Saturday I went shopping with my friend. It was an unplanned trip, but we were a little early for lunch so thought we would spend some time at the mall before heading off for a meal.

Sharing my shopping haul on the vlog today - some of my favourites. So grab a cuppa and take a look at what I bought ...

Hope you enjoyed today's vlog. After last week's vlog that was on a serious topic, this week is a little frivolous, but once in a while it's nice to keep it light and fun. What have you bought lately? Share in the comments below.

Have you ever ... #vlog #chaiwithsuzy #SuzysIlation

Have you ever thought about your retirement?

Does it scare you or are you excited about it?  I have mixed feelings -somedays it's scary and somedays I look forward to it.

Lately, as I get closer to 60, I've been thinking about it a fair bit so grab a cuppa and chat with me about retirement.

I hope you enjoyed my vlog and that perhaps if you find the thought of retirement scary, my chat has alleviated some of that anxiety. Share your thoughts on retirement in the comments below.
