Pump up the Volume

It’s taken me three weeks to realise that as we now live in a detached bungalow and no longer live in a small flat with other people living either directly below us or beside us sharing party walls, I once again have the freedom to listen to music and sing along and dance around as much as I like without having to consider disturbing anyone else.

I can have the radio tuned to whatever station I choose, pump up the volume and belt out old favourites at random as I see fit, for as long as it suits me to join in. It feels so liberating not to have to worry about making too much noise, and I find I’m really enjoying singing my heart out, however badly I may hold a tune – what fun! πŸ™‚

  1. I know exactly how you feel, Ruth. Our last house in South Africa was a beachfront duplex and I vowed that I never wanted to live joined onto anyone again. I felt that I couldn’t play my piano except when I knew they were out and the walls were a bit too thin, so you could hear if they were taking a bath or sneezed loudly. Now I feel free as a bird again, just like you do.

  2. I envy you that pleasure, I’ve just spent the weekend cat sitting at my daughter house which is a detached house and I found it great not to have to think of the neighbours ❀️
