Designated Driver - Free drinks!

The other day I saw a notice from my local council stating that through South Derbyshire pubs had agreed to offer free drinks to Designated Drivers over the festive period. I thought wow what a great idea, as a non drinking family myself and my partner are often called upon to fetch and carry as the designated drivers around Christmas and I think this scheme is fantastic to encourage people to not drink whilst driving this Christmas which really will save lives.

Then I noticed that Britmums were also highlighting this fantastic campaign in their #FestivePlaylist linky sponsored by CocaCola who have an interactive Pubfinder to help you find your local pub which is offering 2 for 1 drinks of CocaCola, DietCoke  and Coke Zero

To get everyone in the festive spirit they are asking bloggers to list their top 5 tunes to keep everyone smiling this season, be they driving or not, they have asked bloggers to link to youtube videos of the songs or even sing them yourself - however I am tone death and a simply awful singer - but my other half is rather good and loves to sing, infact he has an account on a singing website SingSnap and has recorded a fair few fun loving easy listening tunes which I always want to humm along too, so I am picking out my favourites of his recordings to share with you, there not especially festive as I only just noticed this competition and only have half an hour to meet the deadline so no time to get him to sing designated songs- but I hope you enjoy the selection anyway!

So without further ado here is my Top 5 tracks sung by my other half!

A Little Bit of Soul -  Showaddywaddy

Such a fun song which you just can't help jig along too, it isn't specially festive but certainly a happy tune which fits the mood!

Jingle Bell Rock - Bobby Helms

A brilliant festive fun song

If I can Dream - Elvis Presley

A lovely tune, with such great words which are quite fitting for the holiday period.

I Just Can't Stop Loving You - Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson songs are always great to listen to, fit in with any mood, perfect for listening whilst driving home for Christmas to a loved one

Pray - Take That

I had to add a Take That song in somewhere and this is the only one I could find that Darren has saved in his recording list!

I hope you enjoyed the tunes. Check out everyone elses favourite songs on the Britmums Linky and remember to stay safe this festive period, designated a driver and enjoy the free drinks.

Merry Christmas
