All in a day.

Can you hear it laughing

we are fooled by the weather

the sun comes out the sky is

blue and we think spring has

arrived then it goes hehehe

I fooled you and down

comes the rain or the snow

the wind and the bitter cold

and back to winter we go

it is winter one day summer

the next we don’t know

what to do

we take the brolly and

out comes the sun we put

on the summery clothes

and cold it goes.

I would like to be a bit more pushy

like some people that I know but once

you say you like some thing they bore

you through and through they never

stop sending you photographs of themselves

doing this and that this is Me they say

sitting in the bath, this is Me in the garden

this is Me having my hair done this is me

when I married this is Me with my man this

is Me at Christmas this is my new dress

this is my new car

it is all about Me.

My new year resolution’s.

My New Year resolution’s did not last the way

I hoped they would before the first week was out

I slipped and fell

the simple yoga exercise had left me a painful


It was not a good idea to carry on

this way

Bible study it was hard to find the

time with so much to do but I did

give it a go and will find

the time to do

Meditation this I love but motivating

myself does not happen as

often as it should.

Ready for the flower’s.

I am ready for the summer

as excited as can be

I bought a trough to fill with

flower’s all colour’s

you might never ever see

Yellow start’s the spring with

daffodil’s that bloom masses

of them every where

they brighten up any gloom

next will come the tulip bulbs

bright colour’s to lighten any day

flower’s every where what a treat to see.

Happy days.


It is nearly spring, it is just around the corner, soon we will be planting seeds and pottering in the garden again and lieing out in the sunshine, people will stop in the street to chat again, birds will be singing, there will be children playing and benches full of people lazying around. 0ut will come summer clothes and people caring more about how they look than winter permits.

Past times.

Where will this year lead us I wonder. Having joined a genealogy group I have learned quite a lot about myself from the family I never met. Many of my father’s side of the family live in America and I find my mother’s brother was a high ranking policeman, all interesting stuff.

This your life. (poem)

I stood on top of a mountain

A voice said there is your life before you

There are the home’s you have made

There are the people you have loved

There is the land you have lived upon

There are the animals you have loved

There are the tree’s and flowers you have grown

There are the stories you have written

There is the poetry you have written

There is the family you have never met

There is the kindness you gave

There is the grief and pain you felt

There is the lack of love and understanding given to you

There is the heart only I god of the universe can see.









Sorting myself out.

My resolutions I might call them for 2018 are these.  1/ To try to do some bible study every day.  2/ To do some yoga.  3/ To meditate.

I enjoy meditation and it works well for me I could cheerfully spend much more time listing to waves or the wind or the rain or such things. Yoga is some thing I also enjoy but I have to be careful with the problems I have I stay within gentle poses  only. I enjoy reading stories from the bible too and I do feel they are relevant to today and there is some thing to be learned from them wether you are a beliver or not.
