We went to see Lifehouse playing in Manchester on Friday night, and as well as it being good that my mother-in-law was able to babysit, I always gather creative momentum after going to a good gig. Music has a big influence on me, not only has it got me through some tough times, but music can tell a lot about personality. As an introvert I sometimes need to escape to a corner and immerse myself in my fave music. It was also the basis of my sketchbook project book ‘life, love, loss’ which has just finished it’s final USA tour. Today my hubby is working, my father-in-law is looking after my son, and I’m home alone apart from the building work happening outside. so it was a good excuse to put the music on and try to motivate myself on a stressful Monday. What’s on your playlist today?
