when you aren't very able to socialise or to continue the hobbies you used to have.

I always listed to music videos on youtube, but have come across some interesting videos from 'ordinary' people, gardening or de-cluttering etc. But one which is just really so upbeat is a weekly video by a young couple, artist and musician, who with their lovely dog ( and now with a new puppy as well) moved to a cottage on Skye which they have renovated 'on screen' and is just a window on a ( to me) lovely way of living if you can, and are up for the challenges.

It's also a great way of seeing some beautiful scenery I almost certainly won't get to see in person as they film days out. :-)

I hadn't listened to music for quite a while so youtube is very handy.
Me, headphones, sound up, stonking :-D :-D :-D

**Ann** Hope you enjoy it .

Great isn't it Island. My son bought me good headphones a couple of Christmases ago, and so I don't disturb anyone when I have something from 'my era' belting out :-)
