Top Ten Tuesday Presents - ABBA 2021

Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Greetings. What a pleasure to spend this Tuesday with you. Please allow me to introduce myself. This is not your normal hosts for this blogspot. I had to hijack it for a couple of hours. You do know me, you just don't know it yet. You have been in my embrace for the last 12 days and I really am trying my utmost best to make you feel safe and cared for. 

Hijacking this blogspot was as easy as taking candy from a baby. I just handed the woman a book and a chocolate and off she went. The little snowball was a bit of a different story. Quite the curious little thing. No harm has been done to her, but she is snoozing nicely with her catnip-filled toy. 

As you know, this week's prompt for Top Ten Tuesday is goals and hopes for 2021. Tada - That's me! 2021!! I thought it best to take part in this week's TTT, just to show you that I also have hopes and dreams for you. 

Through the ages, there's been some awesome bands, but there has only been one ABBA. Yes, I know it's been done before, but I would so love to also have my own musical. Nothing much is stopping me, so I just went ahead and made me one through which I would like to share my goals and hopes as well. 

The lady and the fluffy white cat whose blog this actually is, are South Africans and their country is under strict lockdown regulations again. Their first thought when I so hopefully sprang to life 12 days ago, were:


And I really do understand that. I am so sorry that my predecessor messed your lives up so intensely. I am well aware that all you want to shout at my predecessor, is that everything was just fine, simply marvelous:


Yes, I know that 2020 was tough and hard and 


You all thought that with the end of 2020, there will be a better tomorrow. But all you see at the moment is 


My heart goes out to all of you, but I am here, dressed up in my best ABBA costume, to tell you - or rather to ask you to please, please 


If you would only give me chance and take that chance on me, I solemnly swear and I promise


That I will do me very best to be a better year for you. I will pull out all the stops and be your 
I know that we can beat this horrible, horrible virus and all the complications it brings along. If you make me your Super Trouper and we all just play by the rules and follow them, you will soon be the


I simply can't wait for all the parties and celebrations when, together, we beat that dreadful virus and we can finally 


Move on and get out and spend time with all our near and dear ones. Hopefully, before we know it, this will all be behind us and we can all go about our day to day activities and visit each other all the time just


I hope you've enjoyed this musical that I presented to you and that you now know that I care for all your goals and hopes and dreams for this year. If everyone just play there little part, we can make 2021 the greatest show ever! 

Please share your hopes, dreams and goals for me, with me. I promise I will try my best to make them come true.

Yours affectionately,

  8. This is brilliant, I saw ABBA and thought is it ABBA, maybe it’s an acronym 🤔

    I’m so glad it’s ABBA! Love them and this post! 😍

    1. No, it's ABBA!!! I don't think you can make an acronym with ABBA. It will be sacrilegious or something. I'm sure of that!

  13. This made me laugh and want to put on some Abba and dance ! I had all their LPs and then I moved and they didn't like the treatment... :( Fortunately, there are other ways to listen to that wonderful group that I love so much :)

    1. LP's.... Good Grief! How awesome! I also had LP's, but not anything by ABBA. My first "owned" ABBA album was on cd.

      But I still dance to them!
