Music to match your mood

I like to listen to music while I am writing or studying. I always have done, ever since I was at school. Sometimes I make playlists from my music files, sometimes I listen to digital or online radio stations.

A while ago I followed a link from a blog and landed on the Musicovery website (sorry I can't remember for sure where I found the link, but I think it may have been Sarah Salway's blog?)

Anyway, I love this music site. You enter your mood on the track generator, tell it which genre(s) you want to listen to and sit back. The available tracks are very eclectic and I have found myself listening to all sorts of music with which I am unfamiliar. Great fun and free, unless you really want the superior sound quality version.

Three notable things:

1. Both boys have a virus.

2. I have been to Tesco. The fridge is full and we have enough food to keep two hungry teenage boys fed until, um, Monday?

3. It is too noisy and chaotic here at the moment to even consider writing. Roll on the end of half term. Only 10 days to go...

Oooh 10 days to go, Amy goes back on Monday and she's definitely ready.

Sorry your sons have a virus, tell them to take good care of themselves.

Ugh, hope they get better soon, and take care of yourself so you don't get sick!
That looks like a great link.

Yes our half term has only just started. It has a staff training day added on to the end. I'll be back in the land of the living on November 6th!

The virus isn't too bad, but they are snuffly, snotty and grumpy, which affects son 2 quite badly.

Hi Cathy, just to say thank you for reading my latest post. I have taken your advice (together with Leatherdykeuk) and removed a sentence in the first paragraph of which I was never happy with! I do appreciate feedback - it's the only way, in my view, that we can move forward.

Hope the boys get better soon and don't forget to look after yourself too!
