His brother in arms

Tiny boy gives up the ghost

No tears he’s at peace.

Is there any hope

For the poor warchild to cope

Shed a tear for peace.

Why, hands held to sky

Tears shed from inocent eyes

Warchild prays for peace.

Twittering Tale #27 – 25 April 2017

This week for Twittering Tales Kat of Like Murcury Colliding has given us such a wonderful photo prompt. I have rather gone for the darkside of human relations but this is a real crime and it is also a growing crime.

He tried to erase the painting he could’nt bear to see her beauty. Jealousy and pride had driven him mad. No reprieve, acid was perminant.

Annual Bloggers Bash 2017 Update.

The Bash is so close now and I am so excited: Here is the latest news 🤗

Bloggers Bash Update

The Bash is getting closer and closer guys, I can’t wait to see you all. There’s tons to catch up on so I’ll try and keep it short and sweet.

1. The nominations are open. If you haven’t already nominated then make sure you do before the 8th May. Nominate here. The vote will open at 8AM on the 18th May and of course I’ll email you before to remind you to vote.
2. Tickets are selling fast, if you haven’t already got yours you can buy it here
3. We have an agenda for the day, we will add a few more details and remove the question marks in a couple of weeks, but for now, you can see our rough outline here.
4. If you won an award last year, and you’re coming to the event, can you drop me a line to let me know. We might have a favor to ask you.

Lots of you are asking about tickets and receipts. If you get a PayPal receipt then you have a ticket. Once ticket sales close on the 7th I will send you out your tickets that evening. You’ll then need to print it or bring it on your phone.

I think that’s it for now. Thanks to everyone who replied with suggestions for the panel debate, we’re busy putting that together and will have more info shortly.

As always, don’t forget to share the bash and tell all your friends.

Have an awesome weekend.

My Blog

A book chosen at random on my afternoon of volunteering at my local Library. Written by Matthew Thomas , his first Novel, a keenly observed story of family life.

I finished reading it this morning…a mere 14 days …Having to discipline myself not to keep reading at the expense of household tasks…it was difficult to put down.

Little did I know it was going to take me into a world that might well be my future as my partner of 58 years slowly loses his short term memory.

I hope I will not be like the Mother/Wife in the story who felt she could handle everything and not look for help…in fact i know in my heart I won’t be like that.

having raised four youngsters and always coped with everything that came my way, I have reached the stage where I feel I need to be cared for…but who…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.Mirror, Mirror.

K’Lee and Dale’s Cosmic photo challenge this week is Mirror Mirror.

I have gone au natural with my photos but hope they are artistic enough to speak for themselves. 

The top one is of the reflection of the outside view in the glass of the open window.It was taken at a beautiful gite we stayed in last August in the middle of nowhere in France.

The one below shows the reflection of a French Chateau in the waters of a river.

The photo below is of sky and fields in the wing mirror of our car. You can just see my arm as I am taking the photo, hubby was driving.

Below trees and sky in a man made circular pond.

And the last one shows our garden reflected in our granite work too.

Out Damn Spot.

Today  a grease stain was found on the sofa😱. It was not caused by me or hubby but a guest. Personally I would have left it until tomorrow and used the talc powder remedy. But hubby is impetuious. …. Now it is worse. To destress I have written three Haiku.

Stress making me sieve!
