That awkward moment...  
... when you're in the supermarket and a song you like starts playing on the instore radio, and you start doing a little dance as you push your trolley down the aisle and then someone comes around the corner into the same aisle. I didn't care how awkward it was, today, I just kept dancing and singing along.

When I upgraded my phone back in April, the new one came with a six months' free subscription to Netflix which had only just launched in Australia. It wasn't something I thought I'd use, at first, but I've succumbed to temptation and when the six months is up I'm seriously considering subscribing. Especially while I was on holidays I found myself more and more turning the telly on at night and looking for something to watch.

One show I thoroughly enjoyed was The Thick of It - started watching for Peter Capaldi and later Roger Allam but got totally sucked into the stories. Now I've started House of Cards, both the US and the UK versions, and also the occasional movie - I think I must be the last person in the western world to actually watch Mean Girls!

Hahaha! I've never watched Meant Girls!

Oh I've been caught grooving in the aisles at the grocery store, singing mostly. I just ignore people if they look at me strangely. But I do smile back at the ones who like what I'm doing.

There was chemist in the mall where I once worked and all the mall employees would go there to get sodas and snacks on break, but also to listen to the great music they played. Really made you feel better before you had to go back to work. :D

Oh then I feel much better! I thought I must have been living under a rock, based on the strange looks I got yesterday when telling family and friends what I had done the previous evening.

I often sing or whistle along to a favourite song when I'm out and about and I do try to ignore the stares :-)

Music really can change your mood, can't it. I know when we were insanely busy at work, before I took my holidays, I was taking my itouch into work and listening to Bach while I worked. I could feel my stress levels decreasing minute by minute.

As a musician I know music can help heal and relax on so many levels, so no you're not living under a rock.

There's a saying I've read, "Dance like no one is watching." We all need to do that once in a while! :D
