Dearest Princess Amelia, I must apologise for being a little lazy with posts to your blog, the last one was more than three months ago. So I thought that I would start it back up with a nonsense lyric that I love. The singer is Barry Mann and the song is all about the bomp bah bomp bah bomp and it is called “Who Put The Bomp”. I hope that you and all the people in Goddarwil enjoy it and find the time to dance to it!

Dearest Princess Amelia, your Mummy and Daddy told me a few days ago that you had told them what your three favourite words are. They said that love, happy and hope are your favourite words. Well I believe that is a fantastic set of words to have as favourites and if you don’t mind I would like to borrow them and make them my favourites as well. If you always consider love, happiness and hope in everything that you do then I believe that you will have a wonderful life and you will make life better for everyone that you come into contact with too. To me you are and will always be a very loving, very happy girl who has a heart full of hope. As your Odd Father I have to say please don’t ever stop being that girl, even when you are much older! Anyway I thought that I would try to sum up those three words of yours in three songs.

So to make you feel a little happy there is a fabulous song called, simply, “Happy”. Finally I thought for a long while about the most hopeful song that I know and it came down to a simple choice in the end. It is one of my favourite ever songs from one of my very favourite singers it is Johnny Nash with “I Can See Clearly Now”. I hope that you enjoy these three songs and that maybe they stay with you, particularly in times when maybe you might feel a little bit sad. Just remember that sometimes it is OK to feel like that but never forget that there is always hope and that you will always be loved.

coloured cats

Dearest Princess Amelia I’m sorry it has been so long since I posted on your blog. Someone from the Godderwil Royal Family has told me that you now have a cat called Pudding. Now that gave me an idea. I thought I would make a post for you that had a few cat and cat related songs on it. I hope that you enjoy them. Tell me which is your favourite.

Poor little kitten Joey was only a few weeks old when his mother was killed while crossing a road near Exeter in Devon. Happily for Joey he was successfully introduced to a new mum after being taken to the Axhayes cat adoption centre. However, his new mother already has three kittens of her own, which are 6-weeks older than Joey and three times as big. But, despite the differences in size and age, Joey has been welcomed into the feline family and now has big brother Chesney to lend him a helping paw. Both Joey and Chesney are currently shopping around for a new home, though Joey will have to wait a few weeks before he is old enough to leave his new mum.

Dearest Princess Amelia, I must apologise for taking so long to post another item on your blog. Anyway as you have now started school I thought that I would choose a few school related songs for you. Some are about being at school, others are about what you might learn and simply about being of school age. I hope that you enjoy them. There are a couple of my favourite songs in there too, especially “Itchycoo Park” and “I Wish”.  Aunty Catherine and I are really looking forward to hearing how you are getting on at school :-). After the videos I have added a few pictures of my old school 🙂

jeff beck groupDearest Princess Amelia I’m afraid that Aunty Catherine and me have been a bit busy this month so your February post is late. But I have chosen a great party song that I hope you will enjoy singing and dancing along to. The song is by the Jeff Beck Group and was released when Oncle Bill was just a little boy. It is called “Hi Ho Silver Lining

milliePrincess Amelia I’m a little late with this months post but I think you will enjoy the song. I have chosen a song that was written in an early form of reggae known as ska. It reached number two in the UK charts in 1964. The song is “My Boy Lollipop” by Millie Small. I still love the song and I also like the next song Millie released, partly because it has mine name in the title. It was called “Sweet William”. I hope that you love dancing and maybe singing along to “My Boy Lollipop”.
