Blogtober 2020 – Get Into The Groove

Today is Day 4 of Blogtober 2020, and the theme today is – Get Into The Groove.

I have thought long and hard over this prompt, and all I keep getting is Madonnas song going around in my head, which is a great song but not really helping me.

Rather than list my favourite songs, I am going to write about the times I love to listen to music


It is not a secret that I am not a fan of housework. I get fed up of the constant cleaning, hoovering, washing, ironing the list goes on.  I find putting on my music and turning it up so I can sing along and dance away while doing all these jobs, helps to make it less of a chore and more enjoyable.


Whether I am popping up the road to Tesco or on a longer journey.  I love listen to music, I turn up the stereo and sing along to all my favourite songs.


If I am walking the dogs on my own, I put in the headphones and listen to my favourite songs whilst walking and clearing my head.  I try not to sing while doing walking alone though.

I like to have some background noise when working, and often listen to music while working away.  Some how it helps me to think and focus on what I am working on.

What are your favourite times to get into your groove and listen to music? Do you have any other times you listen to music?

Did you see my post yesterday on Sweet Child O Mine? Tomorrows theme is Manic Monday I hope you come back to see my views on Manic Monday.

    I was nodding along all the way through this, I love music in all these situations too. I have to be so careful not to start singing along, or dancing, if I listen to music when I’m out walking! x

    I find it impossible to do house work in silence. I need music and to be able to sing and dance along to my favourite tunes. x

      It does make things much easier to get the jobs done than having silence
