This week’s #WOTW and #Prose4T 

By | October 13, 2016

My word for this week is Recovery, and here’s why, with the #Prose4T aspect too: That procedure I fought for, appealed and won, it happened this week, And now I’m at home, recovering, the cells rejoining, regrouping, making me occasionally “squeak”. Not one foot, but two operated on, I’m an “all or nothing” girl. Never […]

Waiting – Thurs 15th Sept 2016 

By | September 15, 2016

Well, by now, my appeal for my operation should have been heard.  I’ve been told that I’ll hear the outcome within five working days, but I really hope I get a phone call sooner rather than later. I’m not confident of a positive outcome but am hoping that the panel actually had enough attendees there […]

Schools Out – Now and Then #Prose4T

By | August 6, 2015

It’s the summer holidays! For our T, the routine’s gone to pot, He turns in late and gets up later, It matters not a jot! For D, it’s up as usual with the dawn, Excited squeals as she races in. We have a cuddle and she chatters away, Whilst I stifle a big yawn. I […]

Dolce The Ulcer #Prose4T

By | May 9, 2015

For those who regularly read my blogs (and thank you if you do), you’ll know that this is a pesky topic this week. The “thing” now has a name as that seems to make it easier to deal with and I’m not so much honouring it with a piece of prose, but inviting it to […]

Remembrance #Prose4T

By | November 6, 2014

Fading names on an electoral roll You fought You gave your body and soul Sent off with basic training Maybe enhancing your age Working as a team Regardless of title or race Brave, brave men In circumstances of horror You are commemorated In every poppy, with honour Other wars since then Fighting for justice and […]

Our (not so) Little Boy Blue #Prose4T

By | October 29, 2014

It’s been a calm day, a day of castle making for T’s homework. T is the grand old age of 12 next week so I’ve composed a little poem for him (and some throwback pictures). Our (not so) Little Boy Blue The last 12 years have simply flown by Since you were born with a […]

You Are Missed #Prose4T

By | October 23, 2014

It’s nearly been a year Since you’ve been gone No chance to say goodbye The stroke that took you was too strong You are missed For your honesty and your advice It was always there, harsh or mild But the follow up smile was so nice You were the hub of the family A router […]

A Promise #Prose4T

Snowflakes #Prose4T

By | December 19, 2013

There’s a definite anticipation in our house for snow this Christmas from T, it’s extremely unlikely that his wish will be fulfilled this year (or any other year). His expectation is due to tradition and a lot of hope. He’s been singing Christmas carols at school with the mention of snow, the cards have been […]
