November Madness and Music I’ve Become Obsessed With

Jillian here. Happy November. For those of us doing NaNoWriMo, we’re in the midst of the craziness right now. Last night, I accidently added a zero to my word count, so instead of 22,003, the website had me as 220,003, which is ludicrous. When I tried to fix it, it said I had like negative 199,000 words, so it has been even crazier trying to get it to register correctly now. It even has me as already winning it and that is certainly not true. 🙂 I confess, it is driving me bonkers! LOL

About two months ago, when I was watching an episode of Grantchester on PBS, Robson Green, who plays the detective, was walking around his office singing a little. Someone told me he used to sing with a partner and they were called Robson and Jerome. I had no idea even though I have loved Robson since he was in Wire in the Blood back in the early 2000s.

Of course, I had to find what he sang. You tube has a great selection of their songs and I have been obsessively listening while I work. One day recently, my son asked me who I was listening to and when I told him, he looked them up too. He recognized the Jerome guy from Game of Thrones. I only ever watched two episodes of that show as it didn’t appeal to me, but Jerome was also in Ripper Street which I did like. How cool is it that these guys are so talented? Acting and were also successful recording artists.

Here are links to a couple of songs: What Becomes of the Broken Hearted

If I can Dream.

Update on the bathroom renovation: It’s going slower than the hubs wanted but he is still feeling effects of the cancer treatments and not moving as fast as he wants. He has to rest a lot and has been going to bed super early. I am not stressed about it, but he is. He has also done a few things 2-3 times as he isn’t happy with how he did it the first time or two. He has reset the shower base three times. He thinks he can live with it now. LOL

This week, we honor our veterans here in the US with Veteran’s Day and my friends in the UK have Remembrance Sunday as well. Happy Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks.

I’ll leave you with a picture I took in Rhode Island when my son lived there.

  1. What Becomes of the Broken-Hearted… Going to be singing that all day now. What an excellent rendition. You’re right. These guys are talented. (And I hope you get that NaNo word count fixed.) 🙂

    • Thanks. They def. make me happy to listen to them. Such great songs. And yep, it’s bugging me about the NaNo words but I have my own chart on my computer so it’ll be okay- just don’t like having it wrong.

  2. Beautiful picture. I do miss the tree’s turning this year. But sunshine every day isn’t really so hard to take.

    I hadn’t heard these guys. I agree a lot of talent. I’m always impressed with NaNo participants. That is quite the November goal.

    • I bet it is a def change there in Ariz, Lavada. Enjoy your upcoming sunny winter! Glad you liked the signers, too. NaNo is always a challenge, but I love the craziness. have to rest up the remainder of the year. LOL!

  3. Nice to start my day with familiar songs I’d forgotten. Thanks for the memories.

  4. Best Thanksgiving wishes to you and your family!

  5. Stunning photo! Robson Green is a familiar face and voice here although haven’t heard a lot from him of late. Trust the renovation is coming along and hubs doesn’t wear himself out too much. Keep going with NaNo, you are nearly there!

  6. Beautiful photo, Jillian, and thanks for the trip down memory lane with the mention of Robson and Jerome. They were big here in the UK.
    I can imagine how your husband must be frustrated not feeling able to progress with the renovation as fast as he’d like. Hope he takes it easy though.
