Music is a big part of Jonathan and my life. We listen all through the day, nestled in our offices, head phones on. We listen on our speakers and on some nights Jonathan do requests and play his guitar. That melts my heart.

On Sunday afternoon Jonathan played guitar as my 8 and a half year old niece sang “Father and Son” by Cat Stevens – it was one of those moments you just sit and think “wow, I am so lucky to have these people in my life” and “how does my niece know this song”, considering Cat Stephen was well before my time!

Ever since I have had the song in my head. As I type this Jonathan has picked up his guitar again and I am hoping he will sing as well because it is truly beautiful.


It´s not time to make a change
Just relax and take it easy
You´re still young, That´s your fault
There´s so much you have to know
Find a girl, settle down
If you want you can marry
Look at me
I am old but I´m happy
How can I try to explain
When I do, he turns away again
It has always been the same, same old story
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen
Now there´s a way and I know that I have to go away
I know I have to go
