Long weekend?

It was great to enjoy what seemed like a long weekend. I went out for a rare excursion on Friday night & it made Saturday seem like Sunday which then made Sunday seem like a bonus day. The funny thing was, I was then meeting other people over the weekend who were experiencing the same phenomenon. It was another reminder that we all seem to go through a lot of things at the same time!

It was great to have a bit of fun this week & play a bit of wonderful '80s cheesy music. I thought I'd slot in a bit of a wonderful, powerful, positive song from Stan Bush. From the 1986 Transformers movie no less!
