Around 6 weeks ago, we gave you what was then our ‘Top 21’ – what we had on our music playlist for getting through housework, doing food prep and just generally drowning out ABC Kids from the next room. Then, because it was popular, we said ‘let’s do this once per month!’ . . . and promptly forgot about it!
So, here’s what is on our current playlist. Full disclosure: the April one was more Lisa and this one is more Erin – so you’ll start to know our individual musical tastes.
I’m also using this playlist to try to get back into running mode. Without music, there is NO WAY I will run – unless someone is chasing me with a large implement. Winter is a fairly masoschistic time to start an outdoor exercise routine, I know, but I think if I can stick to something in Winter, surely it will seem easy in Spring and Summer??
Anyway, here’s our next installment – we’d love to know what’s topping your playlist right now!
