Needs must when you don't have a microphone stand!

Thursday, February 21, 2013

So, We Sing Robbie Williams arrived in the post today, and we excitedly plugged in the microphones and had a good singalong to such classics as Kids, Somethin' Stupid, Bodies etc

Then we decided to switch to Guitar Hero, so Tara could play guitar and I could sing. Also good fun, belting out Jet (Wings) In The Shadows (Rasmus) and Losing My Religion (REM). Then my throat decided it needed a rest, leaving Tara wanting me to hold the microphone so she cound sing and play guitar at the same time!

Well, I love her dearly, but I have better things to do than be a microphone stand, so it was time to figure out an alternative. We needed something free standing, and tall enough to attach a mike to.

I think I've got it

Enter my Christmas pressie!

Remember my new mop?

Well, it already has several uses with all its attachments - mop, glass cleaner, garment steamer, carpet cleaner, etc.

Now it has another use...

as a microphone stand...

It just needed a little parcel tape to hold it in place!

Happy Kidling, and a happy Mummy!
Who could ask for more?

    Lex that sounds like a lot of fun. I sing-a-long to Robbie every morning when I go on my constitutional.
Yesterday I had Knebworth Live on, so the background base was awesome. emoticon

I take it "parcel tape" is roughly equivalent to "duct tape" here stateside??

We do all kinds of "reverse engineering" all the time!!

INGENUITY! that's us, the Sparksters!!
