Some days are just meant to be.

Some days are just meant to be. 

The type of day that stays in your heart, engraved for older years. 

Waiting patiently to be replayed.

On days like this we get out the gramophone.

And we dance.

It doesn't matter that we don't know the words as our records are in German.

Some how this makes it even better.

This was a gift from an old man who thought we would put it to good use.

We did not know this man.

But he had watched us on holiday in Spain,

and given it to my husband with a nod and a smile.

And then turned to go home.

On days like this we think of you, 

and your kindness.

And we are in love with your gramophone,

and the magic it brings each time we spin.
