With the weather being typically British, no money and an introvert attitude to socialising I find myself doing the same thing every day. When stuck in doors you begin to live your life virtually and although the knitting keeps me busy the television becomes company and facebook a place to inform those close 700 friends what your watching. In discovering Billie Holiday I do wish for simpler times. I know my social interaction is down to me, but what happened to the days of being swept off our feet, of class and adventure. It probably wasn't as incredible as Holiday makes me believe, but its a fantasy non the less.
Everything is overly romanticised in this music and so hard to relate to when Morrissey tells us people aren't meant to be together. Maybe I'm over thinking it all way to much, but I'd rather be educated by Billie Holiday than Morrissey any day and hopefully remembering this I'll enjoy modern living. Any way if I was living in the 40s I wouldn't be able to enjoy its vintage appeal now. Thursday I'll be on the look out for a new outfit with Youles, who is the best in Charity shopping and purchasing more stuff can only elevate the mood so I am looking forward to it immensely.
