Funky Knutts – Songs to give you that Friday Feeling! (Week 8)
The carnage of Doris Day has left us, the storm, not the wholesome Actress/Singer…
Oh dear. Doris Day isn’t impressed.
Crap joke…but it still made me chuckle.
The sun is out today thankfully. It was a tad breezy yesterday wasn’t it!
We have had a busy week being back at school after half term and next week sees us going headfirst into Book Fortnight. Yep, that’s right, no book week for us but 2 weeks of book related frivolity. The kids are really lucky to have such a fab school that plan lots events around occasions like this, even if it does mean remembering fancy dress on a day or two. I have persuaded the eldest to be Charlie Bucket from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (because the costume is super simple!) and the middle one is going as The Mad Hatter (because we already had a Mad Hatter costume). Bosh. Done.
I hope you’ve all had a good week and with the sun shining here today, I have really got that Friday feeling. T-minus 7 hours until G&T o’clock. Win!
This song is one of my all time faves by one of my favourite bands. I was very lucky to see them live a couple of years ago at the Milton Keynes Bowl and it was a night I will never forget. Not only were the Foo’s amazing but it took us 2.5 hours to get out of the car park at the end. Rock on…

When I played this today, the toddler had a bit of a rock out and ‘lost himself in the music’ somewhat. I had to film him, he cracked me up.
(The hands moving about are him doing air guitar…hahaha!)
I love this song. It makes me recall sunny days, pre-kids, driving off somewhere with Mr Knutts for a walk or just going for a drive without having to pack a bag full of spare clothes and snack as well as having someone ask, “Are we nearly there yet?” and, “Where are we going?”.
Ahhhh, I love the kids to bits but I do miss those carefree days.
The Foo’s are one of my all time favourite bands…and I love Dave Grohl. The guy is an absolute genius. He sings, writes music and lyrics, plays drums, guitar, bass, everything. He is a rock god. Taylor the drummer is out of this world and we were super lucky, when we saw them at Milton Keynes Bowl in 2015, that they had a guest appearance by none other than Roger Taylor from Queen and John Paul Jones from Led Zep. They sang under pressure and it is something I will never forget.
Grohl called it a ‘Superdupergroup’ – and it really was.
