Livin’ on a Prayer

Whilst I was taking the teenager and toddler to their nana’s for the day so I could go the kid free place called work, (woo hoo!) Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer came on the radio. It is almost impossible not to sing really loudly to this and much to the teenager’s disdain, I did! All the way to nana’s.

When it had finished, I told the teenager that I had danced to that particular song at the school leavers disco, many moons ago. Twenty one actually, God do I feel old now! The teenager obviously being too cool, just rolled her eyes and laughed.

But it got me thinking though about when I was sixteen again. I was one of those who hadn’t got a clue what I wanted to do now school was finished. There were plenty of those around me that were going to be a doctor, vet, teacher, lawyer etc. But I hadn’t a clue! I met hubby not long after I left school. He was working and I decided I wanted to as well. (What was I thinking?) College went out of the window and the working world came into view!

Now twenty-one years later, two kids, mortgage and hubby and I still working, I am ready to go back to college! Well, distance learning anyway. To anyone who has read my blog before, you will know that recently I was undecided about going back to study. Well, I am going to take the plunge and sign up for a course with the Open University that starts in November!!!! Cue fanfare!!!

  1. Good post.
    I liked “living on a prayer” too, though I would not call myself a Bon Jovi fan. I’ve made myself hoarse by trying to sing it louder than the band, before now!
    Good luck with your studies.

    1. Thanks for taking the time to read it Rob. It still amazes me that people actually read and comment on something I have written! So thanks again!


    1. Thanks for taking the time to read the post, Lorna! It’s a bit scary and exciting at the same time but I’m looking forward to starting in November! Hopefully, i’ll still be saying that come December!!! 🙂

Any thoughts?
