I’m under strict instructions from my mother to “find a happy place”. Obviously I’ve reassured her that all is ok in my little land of make believe but she’s not convinced so, here is a happy post!

I’ve blogged before about my happy song (see mum, I can do it!) and this weekend I’m hoping it might get an outing.  It’s disco time in the villages this Saturday:  The lovely @karamina, or Rachael to us locals, aka marathonmummy, is organising a quiz and disco to bump her London Marathon fund raising effort over its £1500 target, and I will be dancing from the minute the quiz ends to the second my gorgeous husband lays down his headphones.

I hope those old enough to remember will have  noted the cultural ref in the title of this one…..there’s no finer dancing movie than this:-

RIP Chris Penn

    I NEED to watch that film now! Wish I was near enough to dance…may have a little sitting room jig and raise a glass or two!

    It’s a film that resonates so deeply with me….don’t get me wrong, I have nothing in common with the characters, but I was obviously at my most hormonal when I first watched it and i still LOVE it to this day.

    Such a shame you’re not nearer, it would be fun! I’ll tweet a few songs and you can join in remotely 🙂

    Oh I love that song!!

    I have tagged you on my post today – it’s the meme we were talking about on Twitter last weekend. If it’s shit, just change it to suit you.

    Love CJ xx

    Thanks CJ…I’ve been over for a quick peep but must come back and comment…. not sure how I’m going to swing it, as OH does occasionally read, but I’ll sort something out xx

    Thanks for the link Julia, the infinite playlist is a great one, although I don’t know how I’d decide on which to pick (if I got tagged). As you know, it’s not looking good now….dancing shoes may be off! xx
