Soundtrack To My Life
Lesley writes for a living (copy writing, blogging, social media, poetry) and is also a winner of NANOWRIO - which means she wrote a novel of more than 50,000 words in one month - which is still waiting to be published. More about Lesley can be found on her blog (links at the bottom of the page) and for now, it's over to her Soundtrack To My Life choices.


Donny Osmond - Puppy Love

As cringeworthy as it is, I was about 4 or 5 and this was the first record I ever owned, a 45 and it was never off the turntable.

Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf

When I was an older teenager, the girls all used to use this song to laugh about all the boys we thought we could wrap around our fingers and get to do what we want. Those were the days when we all thought that our slim figures would just be there forever more and we were the creatures in control of the world.....Parents were just fun spoilers.

Moody Blues - Nights in White Satin

A favourite of my grandfather. A song that will always bring a tear to my eye as the only man in my life as I was growing up. He is sadly missed.

CBeebies - Bedtime Song - The Time Has Come To Say Goodnight

After four rounds of IVF and one failed donor cycle, adopting 3 boys with unknown prospects was absolutely incredible, however the amount of work and help they needed meant that for several years, this one song because the saviour of my lifetime as it signaled sitting down, all in one place and "SILENCE." I came to love this song with all of my heart.

Fun. - Some Nights

I really had it hard to pick this one. So many that mean so much to me form Sunday Girl from Blondie, Mama Told Me Not To Come (Three Dog Night), Sweet Child of Mine by Guns and Roses, ZZ Top Legs, Aerosmith and many more. As you can guess, I have always been a bit of a soft rock type, although the songs I've picked for this are more to do with landmarks than daily listening. The winner has to be Some Nights from Fun just now, and just because I like it, it reflects a bit of how I feel about my kids life and it always makes me tap my fingers.

Lesley is a bit like me in the fact that she blogs about everything and anything at "Scottish Mum".  She describes herself as a mum who blogs and is Scottish... hence the blog name!  You can also find her on Twitter as @Scottish_Mum.
