Weekend Rewind

I am sitting here with a glass of wine, having survived the annual school disco. All I can say is I'm glad they come but once a year. And even happier that The Builder had a chilled glass of white awaiting our return home, resplendent in our glowsticks and our flashing starfish necklaces.

But enough about my thrilling social life. It's time for the Weekend Rewind. All you have to do to take your place in the moshpit is to follow the Fibro if we're not already friends, link up a classic old post from your well-padded archives, and then visit a few other links to share the comment love. So simple. Just how we like things on Friday night... particularly after enforced viewing of the complex nature of primary school society.

This week's theme for our mixed tape of hot hits is September. And it is a hot month - so many inspiring musical choices to choose from - Green Day 'Wake Me Up When September Ends'... oh, not so positive. Okay, let's look to a standard then. Frank Sinatra was just one of the many who recorded 'September Song'..."It's a long, long time from May to December, but the days grow short when you reach September"... Hmmm. Part of the problem, of course, is that September in the Northern Hemisphere heralds the dark, cold months. Here, of course, it's all 'spring is sprung, the grass is riz..."

I don't mind if you choose perky September or sombre September, just post a link from September 2010 or earlier - if you don't have one, feel free to put up something about spring. Or grass. Whatever.

Okay, that's the spiel done. All that's left now is to Rewind!

(Don't forget to visit my other fave weekend linkys - Maxabella's Grateful, and Blog Gems at The King and Eye (Sunday)).


  1. Did a school disco myself recently. Definitely a night to remember. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. love the visual of you in a a flashing starfish necklace!!
    Have linked up a spring moment from last year (one of my early grateful posts)
    have a great weekend Allison

  3. I always seemed to have something else I had to urgently attend when the school discos were on.
    What a coincidence.

  4. Two major things happened last September:

    1. I turned 40
    2. I had my last hair cut.

    Can you believe that? I haven't had my hair cut in SIX MONTHS..AND i'm already 40 and a half. Yikes!

    Have linked up though the first instalment of the 'book' I started writing at age 14. Aren't you lucky? Now you can probably pick up some story line plots/writing tips for *your* book, hon.


  5. I'm nervously joining in for the first time. September 2008 was kind of a heavy month on my blog. I think I had some things to get off my chest.

  6. The Builder didn't join you all for a spin around the dance floor? Ahhh, but Mr 4 would have made a lovely dance have a stable of dancers AL!

  7. Would love to see you in the flashing starfish necklace.

    Parents are no longer welcome at our school discos for 11 year olds - we leave them at the door. In case we cramp their style.

  8. I dread the school disco, shudder.
    That Green Day song makes me cry, sorry, being a soldier's wife - so many things can trigger the tears. Love Posie

  9. Helloooooo *waves* I was very uninspired last September so went with the weather idea and in Ireland we have wet summers (usually). Jen

  10. you deserve more than wine if you have done the school disco!

  11. No wine at the school disco then! And talking of school, my boy started a new one last perfect for this :)

  12. Flaming Heck! You can tell there aren't any kids at SSG Manor. I went to bed really early last night and missed the start of the Friday rewind!!!!

    Hope we're all recovering here on the morning after the night before at the youngsters' disco.

    Just looking back at my September posts made me remember how glorious the weather is at that time of the year.

  13. Hello, I'm new to the blogging world and just started in January this year, but I thought I'd join in with my latest post which is about a weekend away we had in Spring a few years ago.

  14. Ah the school disco. So many fond memories, not sure I'm ready to be the chaperone!? xx

  15. Giggling at "the grass is riz". For some reason, that has tickled my sleep deprived fancy. Have a good one :)

  16. Lovely blog, nice, so nice!! besos desde españa

  17. I have a pretty bumper selection in September (remind me of that when I am looking for something in the future). I thought I would go for the parenting coach post - nothing like a bit of controversy on a Saturday afternoon. x

  18. We have TWO school discos a year, run by (prepare yourself) 'Disco Doug'. Now, Doug lives up the road from us at number 24 and he is, as they say, a character. He is the SAH dad that I went to the park with that day and nearly wet my pants laughing at how he had scheduled his daughter's daily routine on his BlackBerry. That's Disco Doug for you. x

  19. PS - Do me a fave and change the 'Grateful' button in your sidebar? I hate that button... x

  20. Darling No. 2 came home from her school disco this year and told me quietly, "Mum, it wasn't really a disco because there weren't any lights." Very perceptive for a 4 year old!

  21. I love a primary school disco!! Not only can you wear comfortable shoes, but if you dance badly the only people who are embarrassed are the kids!!

    By the way, on the subject of family passwords (I read your rewind - interesting!!!!), if your password is bokkens, you have nothing to worry about. Bokkens makes complete sense. My uncle used to call chooks "tok toks" for the same reason. Our password would have to be toonkynunk. Or scone flyer. Absolutely nothing to do with chickens!!


Thanks for popping by the Fibro. I love to hear from you!
