“I am a mountain, I am a sea, You can’t take that away from me”

Something strange is happening and I don’t like it.
Not one bit.

It started a few weeks ago, I noticed that my hair was starting to thin on one side of my head.
DEVASTATED.
I don’t have much going for me but I really liked my hair.
And my nose. Continue reading ““I am a mountain, I am a sea, You can’t take that away from me””

“No matter what happens in life be good to people…”

No matter where you are in the world, you probably heard the terrible news of the murder of MP Jo Cox. This isn’t to be a political piece, just an airing of my thoughts as I’m still a little shell shocked by the whole thing. Continue reading ““No matter what happens in life be good to people…””

“There ain’t no cure for the Summertime blues”

Sun cream is being liberally applied.
Paddling pools are being filled with ice cold water.
BBQs are being dragged into the garden and that dusty bottle of Pimms are being pulled out of the cupboard.

SUMMER IS HERE! Continue reading ““There ain’t no cure for the Summertime blues””

He’s a lovely fellow, a great big handsome soft lump of border collie. Continue reading “The dog who came to mini-break”
