Don't Stop Me Now!

Have I ever told you something very special about me (and a few hundred/thousand other people born in the UK within a month or so of me).  Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody was number 1 in the UK charts on the day I was born, and on my 16th birthday.  Some of my earliest memories are of listening to Queen in my dad's car.  And I get really excited when I hear the Queen songs I grew up with on the tv or radio.  They're part of me, who I am, and I don't even need to think to sing along.  In fact, on my good friend (and fellow blogger)'s hen night, I'm fairly sure I was singing Don't Stop Me Now louder than the drag queen with a microphone.  Some things just happen, I can't apologise.

Well, on the subject of Don't Stop Me Now... have you seen the new Visa ad?  Where Grandad doesn't want to be stopped from getting to the birth of his grandchild?  I love him, I really do. The haircuts, the trainers, it's just so happy-making.  (Yes, that is a real word, don't look at me like that!)  I've got to be honest and say I haven't used contactless payment yet myself, my main bank account is with someone small & behind the times, but they do what I need them to.  But I love the idea of contactless & quick payments, and mobile payments, as long as I keep good hold on my phone.  That said, my phone is almost as old as Grandad on the video, so the likelihood of someone wanting to steal it is pretty slim.

Have you seen the advert yet?

Honestly. how cute is that?  I think I'm in love!

  1. I hadn't seen that advert before but it's great. I haven't tried contactless payments yet but I would like to.

  2. I love this song! Contactless payments sound like a good idea to me I have yet to try it.
