Happy Father’s Sunday.

To Father’s everywhere, two poems I wrote in 2015.

Acrostic, Father.

First and foremost he is constantly there

Always ready to support you, comfort and to care

Tough when needed and loving too

Hoping always the best for you

Everlasting patience where you are concerned!

Rooting in corner praising you highly for the accolades you’ve earned.

💜💜💜

New Father

His hands are too big

Like his heart and the love he has to give .
His fear is tangible but he holds the baby
His own, his son. A leader of men …maybe.
This life, these eyes dependent on him
My boy my lad his heart begins to sing.

💜💜💜

Finally I bring this one out every year.

A tribute to my Father 1905 – 1976

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

He was a quiet man, he was a helpful caring man.

Handsome in his youth a dashing man,a fighter for rights.

A union man, a fighting for the under dog man, a “I’ll do it if I can man” .

He met my Mum, a wooing man, a handsome flashing eyed Irishman.

A black haired almost wild man, a stand up for what I am man.

A good man to trust your life to and my Mum did,

He was an out in the open man. What see is what you get man, nothing hid.

He worked hard he was a family man. A sturdy, bring home the wages man,

A giver, comforter, a lover man. A home maker man some one to carry the can man.

A there until the end man.

He was a stern man, when you had done wrong, though he was a quick to praise man.

A happy to teach you a lessen in a song man. A teacher man,sometimes a preacher man

An always there when it counted man. He was a father of the bride man, and he handed all his daughters away.

He was the man who supported his sons when they became the married men.

He was a support man, and adviser man the lover of lilies of the valley man.

He was reunited with my Mum man when they saw us all gone.

He was a plain man to the end man, not a flourish and bouquet,

Nor a black magic man,an honest to the end man.

He was a deaf man, but he heard what was important man!

At the end, a blind man, in stature a tiny man in truth a giant man.

A truly missed man , a wish you where here man.

He is a gone but not a forgotten man.

Silently up it creeps

Over the wall it peeps

Into your heart it seeps,love freely.

Corvus, dark of feather bright of eye

Spread your wings and darken the sky.

Ruby and Monty, enough said!!

Wonderful Bloggers Bash 2017

Well the day started well the sun was out and the dog was walked.

Now I knew the M3 was closed for road works but what’s that on the radio? The M4 is shut from Heathrow to the Chiswick roundabout!.

The husband was intent on driving me to the Bash. I told him that maybe it would be easier if I went by train. He was however insistent so we set off early at 8am. After an hour of looping round hubby finally concided that we were not going to make it by car. So I was dropped off at Hatton Cross Tube station we only done 25miles in an hour and a half! 

Anyway I got my ticket , and headed on down to platform 2 Picadilly Line to Cockfosters. Rang the hubby told him I was on the tube. Changed at Hammersmith to the district line to Upminster. Then we reach Earls Court and everything grinds to a holt!  A delay, what have I done to deserve this.

So finally I arrive at Victoria and it is five minutes past ten. I had Geoff’s directions to hand. Everytime I was unsure of my bearings one of Geoff’s landmarks would crop up.

The photo above is one of Geoff’s​.

And so it was at 10.26am I arrived at the Venue.

I was greeted by Ali and Hugh! And the huging began! 

Did I say hugs lots of hugs!!

Not mention the cakes, did I mention the cakes, Ritu and Geoff made cakes!!

All delicious!

Then the first set of awards were given out and our first presentation by  from  Suzie  of “Suzie Speaks ” about how to monetize your blog and from Elena of Elena Peters mid life blogger  about how to harness and use Pinterest to drive traffic to your blog.

All very informative and interesting but a little scary for me but lots to think about!

Then it was lunch time after which there was a panel discussion with  SuzieElena and Christoph, we were able to ask lots of questions and get sensible and interesting answers! 

Then there were much hilarity from the committee and more awards! Talking of the awards I was sitting next to   Supawoman, I mean  Ritu, who is now a dear friend and Blogary Sis to me. When it came to the award for the Best overall blogger we did  not need drumroll as Lovely Ritu’s heart was beating like a drum!! Well luckily she did win and before her heart burst!!

Well done Ritu you did so well and really deserve the title! 

The runner up was–Sue Vincent who’s blog I really love and infact I was so excited we she arrived at the Bash I was straight in with a hug before she had a chance to know who I was, poor lady she must of wandered what was going on!! I was excited about meeting Sue and she is just as Lovely as thought she was.

2nd Place – Chris Graham – Again a wonderful Blogger.

For names of the all the Award Winners go to ABBA Awards.

Then it was time to mix and mingle and in case this myself fall at the feet of my idols… Well I tripped up a step and fell on my face! I hasten to add I had not touched a drop of Alcohol!  Infact I was told by the many helpers to drink wine and stay up right. It was so great to chat everyone! 

Sadly I did not take enough photos, I was too busy enjoying myself. 

For a more comprehensive post with more information and photos go to the lovely Ritu’s post at But I Smile Anyway

To everyone I met I really enjoyed your company, I dare not mention names for fear of missing someone out. I love you all. To Sacha, Hugh, Ali and Geoff you are all the best and so supportive! 

Next year the Bash is on 9th June 2018. Also the committee is looking to recruit six new members if you can help contact Sacha. 

Sons ……….. and Daughters

We  raise  them

We  praise  them

Goodness  knows

That’s  how  it  goes

If  we  don’t no one  will

Do  the  care..good  or  ill

 

I suppose  they do

In their  own way ,true

They’d  miss us if we were not here

Would  they  cry  or  cheer

Would  we  be without  them though?,

What’s  that I  hear, a resounding  NO!

To  all Mums  especially  Sue Vincent
