Kettle List Update: The 2019 Focus List

Back in the day – that day being December 21st 2018…

I had the wizard idea to select a few items from my Kettle/Bucket/Bristol List and focus on getting them completed. With 13 outstanding items on the 40 x 40, and pretty much ALL of them from the Kettle List, it seemed like a plan was in order. I was trying to concentrate on too many things.

So I thought I would give you a bit of an update.

#pptko2019 blog header base - tuesday tunes

Kids shows get all the best theme tunes..

Although, deciding on just 5 was tough! My first pick was actually my ring tone for a number of years, while I let Hannah pick a few of the newer ones.

I’m sure your 5 tunes would be different, so check mine out and then let me know what I should include next time I do a ‘5 of the best’ kids show’s intro’s

Polly’s Pondering’s : Revisiting the Create versus Consume dilemma

It is with no small irony, that I have been neglecting my blog, to, of all things, write, but I thought I would look at consuming with you today, as it was a subject that was touched upon in one of my earliest Pondering’s. Can we really create in a void? Is there such a thing as ‘new ideas’?

5 of the Best: Taste Breakers for February

#pptko2019 blog header base - tuesday tunes

Trying something new

When I got my Spotify round up at the end of last year, one of the things it offered me were a selection of taste breakers; a collection of tunes that you wouldn’t normally listen to, but that the algorithm thinks you might like.  Now, I literally play my Hyukoh list to death, but there are some hidden gems that I could share from some of my other lists, so come check them out.

Polly’s Pondering’s – Is sharing, caring?

and this week I have pondered…

Do we always have to share ?

Inspired by a particularly riling twitter thread the other day, I have been pondering the concept of sharing, guilt, and whether it is a learnt behaviour. In particular, I wanted to look at how we were taught as children to share, and how this, in turn, impacts what we then teach our own children.

So is ‘sharing caring’, or does the lesson come with a cost?

5 of the Best: Songs of Love for Valentines.

#pptko2019 blog header base - tuesday tunes

Just for Valentines Day

This could just as easily be a top 500, the majority of songs are about love, or being in love…or losing love, but that’s not what we want to hear about at this time of year!

As it is, I only have to choose 5, so I thought I would go for a mix for styles and artists, all of whom want to share the love with you, just in time for Valentines!

Polly Filler – This week!

Polly Filler


Into February

That last week of January was the longest of my life – and it ended with very deep snow that I had to trudge for 2 hours in to get to work.  I say trudge, it became more of a hobble after I slipped on the ice and landed on my back. After realising I would not actually be able to sit down at work, I was allowed home to wallow in pain. Welcome to February everyone!
