In a couple weeks I am meeting up with some friends from school.
We try to meet up at least once a year. It’s wonderful to have that connection with the past, and also our or present and future.
We normally meet up in a pub in Chester, have a meal, then sit round getting drunk and generally have a fabulous time. The night always goes too quick and before we know it we are going out separate ways for another year.
This year we decided to do something different, something that lasted longer. So we are walking up Snowdon and spending the weekend in cottage.
I cannot wait, it will be great to see everyone and to have more time to catch up.
In my excitement I started thinking about our time in 6th Form 30 years ago. You know what I found it quite difficult to remember much. What I did remember was the music I was listening to, and that triggered memories of parties, gigs and nights out.
So being predictable and a lover I put together a playlist. It was great fun to put together. My initial playlist was 5 hours long though. I have managed to get it down to just over an hour and half.
It is a bit of a mix of rock, indie and pop, each song though triggered a memory and transported me back to the late 80s, happy times.
Give it a listen if you wish.
