What You See Is What You Get. This is a journal blog, an explore-blog, a bit of this and that blog. Sharing where the mood takes me. Perhaps it will take you too.

A bit of fun and hark-back to the 1980s... A little bit of the 'Welsh Elvis' for you - none other than Shakin' Stevens!


  1. shakin stevens... my BFF wanted to marry him... we were just silly kids, so mercy for us hahahahahaha

  2. Near where I live there's an elvis impersonator who calls himself Elvis Preseli - which is one of the best puns I've heard. The hills by my house are the preseli mountains!

  3. Mmmm. Shaking Stevens. Quite cheerful, bit I never really was a fan.
    Cheers! Gail.
    PS Hope you kept safe in last night's storm. It was fierce in Aberdeen when I ventured out to Pliates at 6:30 pm.

      Barra started up early here and hit maximum over the middle hours; it never got light, requiring lamp to burn the whole day. It was wild, but I suspect that, just as with Arwen, we didn't get the fullest brunt of it here, though it definitely wasn't pleasant and I would not have ventured out in it! Seems it has cleansed the air, for today is quite still and the sun just claimed the sky.

      I was never a 'Shakey' fan either - but it was a happy-clappy cheery tune and not one that anyone else is likely to pick for their festive selections!!! Yxx

  4. I've never heard this Christmas song but it was sure fun!

  5. love it, can't listen to it without feeling happy and shakin.. lol

  6. Oh YAM what a wonderful surprise on a dreary 40 degree day in NC. I've never heard it of Shakin'Stevens
    I love it thank you!
