I Won’t Back Down

Tom Petty

Well, I won’t back down
No I won’t back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down

No I’ll stand my ground
Won’t be turned around
And I’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down
Gonna stand my ground

And I won’t back down
(I won’t back down)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(I won’t back down)
Hey I will stand my ground
And I won’t back down
Well I know what’s right
I got just one life
In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around
But I’ll stand my ground
And I won’t back down
(I won’t back down)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(I won’t back down)
Hey I will stand my ground
(I won’t back down)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out

#MentalHealthAwarenessDay

Is social media affecting our mental health..

M J Mallon Author

We had Olivia Remes visit our work today for #MentalHealthAwarenessDay. Olivia is a  PhD candidate at the Cambridge Institute of Public Health.  She gave a talk about mental health focussing on anxiety, depression and compulsive obsessive disorder. Unfortunately,  I wasn’t able to record today’s talk so instead I thought I’d share the above link I found on twitter.

Also this article is very interesting: Naked Scientists – Is Social Media Affecting Mental Health. I do believe there is a lot of truth in this, we need to switch off our phones at bedtime – the constant sound of them beeping in the night cannot be good for us! I always leave mine well out of earshot! But, the younger generation are particularly prone to doing this. SWITCH…

I know exactly how Sue is feeling !! You will all enjoy her post!!

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

My hair’s a mess and lacking life
I’m feeling fat and frumpy.
Although I gave up vanity
A while ago… I’m grumpy.

I ache in bits I will not name
And every bone and tooth,
I don’t mind growing older
But my body misses youth.

I tell myself it’s normal
Just the years are dancing by,
And that going downhill’s faster
So the time is bound to fly…

But why should I regret
That I am part of Nature’s wheel?
My mind is still a teenager,
My heart can laugh and feel…

Of all the seasons of the year
The autumn’s best of all,
When gold and scarlet branches
Wear the jewels of the fall.

I think that I should see
My autumn season as the best…
And paint my days with golden glow
Outshining all the rest.

So that when winter catches me
And paints me white and sere,

I feel you here now
Tell me why you haunt me still

You left on a row

I am a ghost of myself

I died, you haunt me from life.

Senryu : Totter.

No ghost of a chance

I try  hard not to totter

These high heels haunt me.

You have broken me

Tenderness  is at the heart

Of all that  I need.

                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Once a work of art

Destroyed, spite lays at the heart

Jealousy maybe

Spoiled because of its beauty

Is this envy what we need.

A magic tree

Out walking this afternoon with our best friends and our dogs we found this magical tree.

It’s another reminder that Autumn is definitely here. Some children or young at heart adults had spent time to make a beautiful tree out of all the signs of Autumn.

I honestly think this work of art, and work of art it is, is proof that Autumn Annie exists.

As we went along our way

Out on our walk with friends today.

We found a magical woodland tree

Such a lovely sight to see.

Someone hand spent time and loving care

To let us know that Autumn Annie has been there. 

Sniffing our dogs, Monty and Ruby

Stopped to check if it was a real tree

And of course to have a Pee!
