Happy Birthday?

A quiet start to the day with walk through the park. 200 greetings on FB then this text arrives ……

When it says opt out —–what exactly do they mean? Some euphemism, maybe ……..


Hmm – worrying ……

I often wake up with some song or other, irritatingly reappearing every few minutes. 

This morning was different.

I awoke with a mash up of ‘Don’t look back in anger’ ‘Pretty Flamingo’ and ‘See Emily play’! 
It goes something like this: 
‘So Sally can wait like a flamingo

Crimson dress that clings so tight

She’s out of reach and out of sight 

There is no other day

Let’s try another way

You’ll lose your mind and play

Free games for May

See Emily play’


A brighter day ….

After I had dragged myself from my bed this morning, I had an uncontrollable urge to seize a pencil and quickly sketch the soft furnishings. Yes everything seemed brighter after I had drawn the curtains! I thank you. 


How old!?

Should an 11 year old have been carrying a ‘pump-action’ shotgun? Not in my book.
