42 Day Twenty Three.

Jane Dougherty has come up with a theme for May . It is 42, now Jane describes it thus: “42 after Douglas Adams’ answer to the question of life, the universe and everything. The form is like the Cherita in its structure with a bit of added interest. The first line/stanza asks a question or makes a statement that begs a question, the second stanza/two lines sets the scene or the background, the last stanza/three lines answers the question or resolves it in some way.

Why do I let it hurt me so

Drop my guard when I should know

The pain will just grow

My own fault I know

So I let the tears flow

I can’t let go.

Miss – Communication ?

Talking on the phone

Or talking one to one

Words can be misconstrued

Twisted and abused

Listen with your eye and soul.

Why am I here

In this vale of fear

With no exit clear

I am left here my soul blackened

My hold on life slackened

In pergatory.

Twittering Tale #85 – 22 May 2018

This is my entry for Kat Myrman of Like Murcury Colliding Twittering Tales.

Rules and Pingback Here

The inheritance.

She could hear the pipes grandda used to play. The sound was in the wind comming up from the sea. Oh! it was cold grey here, desolate even. Yet once inside those forbidding walls all was light and love. What now, with Nana and Grandda both gone. So many memories, must they sell?

A year on.

I wrote this last May, Twittering Tales, in the aftermath of the Manchester Arena Bombing.

I have rewritten and renamed it The Year After.

The Year after.

The quiet was deafening, unlike that night. The screams the blood the fear. The worst had happened. The world sickened him. These were just children, young lives maimed, young lives blown away. He felt so sad.

This is not my entry for this week.

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #202 Fragile&andHeartbeat.

This week Ronovan of Ronovanwrites has given us the words Fragile and Heart Beat for his Weekly Haiku Challenge.

Listen closely to

This tiny fragile heartbeat

It will flutter through.

All life is fragile

It changes in a heartbeat

Winds of change are fleet

Bloggers Bash 😁 Again.

Well how did that happen the 4th Annual Bloggers Bash had come and gone. ??

It was the best ever Sacha and the committee excelled themselves every thing was perfect.

Last year I had such a nightmare getting to the Bash. For some reason all the motorways into London from where I live were shut.That resulted in the other roads being rammed packed ! As it got later and later I started to panic so, hubby gave up and suggested I catch a tube from Hatton Cross. I got to the bash in the nick of time! This year there was an important wedding just up the road from us so as hubby was going to drop me off we decided to leave early! We left just after eight and were in Chiswick by 9.25am ….M4 was clear and we sailed through 😁.

A huge hug and vote of thanks to Sacha, Geoff, Hugh, Suzie, Shelley, Graeme, Helen and Adam for working so hard hard all year to make The Bash the Best Yet!💜

My lovely blog sister Ritu gave a really great presentation on how to be a supermum, have a full-time job, balance to children and a husband (who we met and he is a treasure.) And still run a full and popular blog. I think everyone would of come away with help full tips.

Well I have put up my pictures the good the bad and blurred on yesterday’s post Bloggers Bash 2018. A Wonderful Day.

But you will just have to see them again because I just want to share!

Sacha gave up loads of great info about mailing lists very interesting and helpful.

There was also a panel for question time with Greame asking the questions.

There was a raffle and the award ceremonies at intervals all through the afternoon. It was lovely to see those who were there receiving their awards. Congratulations to all nominees and winners, and of course thanks to those who voted without you there would of been no winners.

Okay photos

These two were great fun to meet and winners too Joanne and Isa you can find them
By the way you can find all the nominees and winners here

It was a fabulous day and I was so pleased to meet new friends and old ones too.

All I can say is if you guys out there have not been to a Bash yet please do come next year you will be so welcome 💜💜
