So my contact with students has lessened quite a bit. Adding to that is the fact that our school, which used to be very open is now (since the latest school violence --which I don't want to mention - but I'm sure you must have heard about) under a very tight lock down. The library is at the very end of the building next to a locked door - so there is much less traffic than usual. Is it any wonder that I feel a bit lonely lately?
I cheer myself up by reminding myself that I have a wonderful husband who still manages to love me (in spite of myself!), two well-adjusted, polite, witty and good looking grown children (who also seem to love me) and a wider group of extended family and friends that are great for entertainment purposes and the odd favour or two.
Perhaps I need a bit more distraction? Well, I have no better place to turn than The Armitage Army! Yes that amazingly talented group of fans of Richard Armitage are always ready with all sorts of pictures, gifs, videos, blog posts, fan fiction - a regular potpourri of anything a fan could wish for!
This was the latest treat that arrived in my YouTube mailbox today...
A Valentine video from mezzym01
Did that get your heart going? It certainly helped mine!
And now (because I feel the need) here is a blast from the past -- a hit from 1973
(back when I was a teeny bopper). This group was Canada's answer to The Osmonds.
Heart Beat, It's a Love Beat / The DeFranco Family
I've never been much for guitar or drum solos but this song will always be a favourite,
especially for the last lyrics at 1:30.
The End / The Beatles
And now my heart feels much better.
You might say it is overflowing with happy thoughts
which might possibly look something like this?
