Into the finals!

Played at the semi-finals for a SongsAlive music comp at 
Narrabeen Sands Hotel last night. 
I had quite a lot of fun and overheard the comment 'cute!!' 
numerous times throughout my set. 
Ah dear, 
I'm going to have to embrace that one won't I!

Now I'm in the finals 
which will take place on November 11th at the same venue. 
Would love to see some familiar faces there. Yay!

The simple joys I experienced in one day.

This morning
Tea with my best friend,
Still in my dressing gown.
Honesty, laughs and love
Shared all in just over an hour.

This evening
Walk into a room of strangers
Play and offer my music.
Such a warm reception,
New friendships made,
Lives changed.

Rush back to say goodbye.
A dear friend is
Going away for a year.
She's decided to give
All her time,
Her energy and resources
To another country in far greater need than ours.
An inspiration.

A late night dinner
With friends
Sitting on the kitchen floor
By candlelight.
So much food and fun.
Treasured times forever.

Simple joys
Found in the everyday.
In Relationships. Love.
And music.
And meaning behind it all.
A firm foundation never shaken.

Simple joys
Are often the most profound.

Just the Way You Are

Such a cute song by Bruno Mars, I just had to do a cover of it! Totally the type of song that most would love to have sung to them!

Anyway, hope it brightens up your day.

A last minute gig with a nice twist!

Last Tuesday I received an email about a singer/songwriters competition taking place on the Thursday night, asking if I was interested in entering the comp! So I jumped at the opportunity, rocked up to Narrabeen Sands Hotel and performed a set as part of the Songs Alive singer/songwriter competition.

My goals for the evening were accomplished; meeting new people, playing to a new crowd, trying out a few new songs and covers and just enjoying the night. The BONUS was that I won! Haha!

So now on to the semi-finals in a few more weeks!
I was quite amused :)

Hope you are well and happy and are enjoying all the delightful surprises that pop up in your life too!
