Truthful Tuesday 13th September: my response

My question was

Do you enjoy the same kind of music as your spouse/partner/significant other.
If not, do you listen to your own preferences in another room or using headphones, or not bother?
I rarely listen to the radio or my CDs anymore unless I’m on my own. I might put a compilation CD on and sing along, though I have to admit, Hubby is not that keen on my taste in music (ballads, old musicals, instrumentals and close harmonies) so we rarely listen to it together.
Hubby has found some lovely music, much of it based on computer games, and I enjoy the majority of it, though there are some tracks that put my teeth on edge.
He watches some old movies in the afternoons when we’re not chasing our tails, and I like to play Guess the Actor/Actress as I am usually typing away or making cards, but in the evenings he likes to listen to music while he’s doing something else, so I listen too.
I don’t mind, as it’s nice to have some background noise and it’s so much better than the mundane drivel that used to be on TV when we had one.

When we were in the cottage, we had a lot more space than we do here, and the piano was in the lounge whereas his computer was in the dining room. We didn’t have laptops then, so I would be content to play on my keyboard while he did his thing on his. Most evenings though we would put a DVD on and watch that. Sometimes though I would put one of my Il Divo CDs on and listen to that as I read while he was working on something in the conservatory.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Il Divo is great – I guess I’m lucky that Sparky and I agree on most music. (Though I am not a big fan of Natalie Merchant)…
