I need to stop comfort eating
Its making me fat
I need to stop prodding my wounds
Its making them bleed
I need to stop not sleeping
Its making me so tired
I need to get back to knitting
It relaxes me
I need to start drinking..
More healthy green tea
I need to carry on with Yoga
Its very good for my health
I need to start embracing life
And the opportunities it brings
I need to love myself more
Nourish and look after me

Doesn't she look radiant
Ooh there so in love
Have you got a tissue I think my mascara has run
What time does the bar open I'm dying for a pint
I'm glad the weather held for them
Wasn't the best mans speech good
I hope I get to kiss the bridesmaid,she sure is looking hot
When can I get these shoes off,they are killing my feet
Auntie Ethel bought them a toaster and so did Auntie Jean
I hope Uncle Stanley doesn't start dancing after he's had a few
Is she wearing something borrowed and something blue
Doesn't everyone look happy
Behave or you won't get ice cream
The meal was absolutely lovely I couldn't eat another thing
Is she throwing her bouquet, I hope I get to catch it ,that...

Weekly challenge
The sun rises slowly
Like a ball of fire
It spreads its rays into the darkness
The dawn chorus begins to sing
Each bird begins its own song
And then they harmonise
A heavenly choir of voices
Bring a welcoming start to the day

Pain
I regret opening up to you and letting you in my life.
I was deceived by you and you slashed my heart with a knife
You threatened all that I believe in and tried to pull me down.
I regret that I shared my feelings with you for you used them against me
I regret the things I called you,I didn't keep my dignity.
I sank down to your level and watched you smile as I did
I regret my loss of composure
I regret my anger and disdain
But I don't regret going no contact with you
I don't regret resiting all the ways you try to pull me in
I don't regret ignoring your mind games
That you try to play all the time
I know it makes you angry that I won't respond to you
But you're a narcissistic person
Sad...

Heart
If I followed my heart
I'd be living in a cottage
In the middle of nowhere
Surrounded by fields and trees
I'd be walking in grass as high as my knees
I'd be growing vegetables in my garden
Sitting reading under the shade of a tree
Making jams from berries in the hedgerows
Talking to the birds and bees
I wouldn't have a television or a telephone
I'd enjoy my own company
I wouldn't feel alone
I'd have friends to come and visit
I wouldn't be sad when they went home
I'd enjoy the sun in summer
The cold winter snow
The wind and rain in Autumn
The budding days of Spring
There'd be an ever changing scenery of nature at my door
I'd be content and happy
I wouldn't want anything more

Storytime.
The sun was shining,the birds chirping and music was playing but she couldn't be bothered. She only thought about what happened yesterday. Had she really seen him walking with another woman in the country park when he told her he was out of town. She was supposed to be out with a friend but her friend was sick so she had gone to the park for some fresh air and he had been surprised to see her there.
She had introduced herself to the woman as his girlfriend and the woman had looked at her in surprise.
He had tried to stammer an explanation but stopped when he had seen the look in her eyes.
She apologized to the woman and said she had introduced herself wrong,from that moment she was...

Tattoos talk
But remember first impressions are not always right

Were you protected when you had them done?
Did you go to a clean place?
Well ,I ask you , do you know if your dentist sterilizes their equipment properly?
Do you know if they are infected with HIV?

Every tattoo is a statement
But there may not be a link between the symbol and the message

You may see it as an imperfection
But to me its my uniqueness as an individual

Some smile when they see me
Some say you can be you without defacing your body for life
Its more original to have a blank canvass
But to me its a statement of art

People will see you as rebellious and aggressive
But I say be who you want and n...

The crops have been harvested and thanks given for the food.
Now its back to shedding blood sweat and tears straining and screening the mud. An artisanal miners life is a hard one.Yet we live in hope,hope that in our sieves will be caught the bright sparkling diamonds that will lift us out of poverty.
Our hope is that the Mosi oa Tuny Declaration will enhance our livelihood, create employment and lift us out of poverty with sustainable development. They say it will take 5 years to emerge and its only been signed 8 months,so we live in hope. Hope that that bright shining diamond will be caught in our sieve💎

Photo challenge
Its hard when you had long hair that shone in the sun
Blew in the wind and could be taken up in a bun
Its hard to have it fall out out in clumps upon your pillow
And have to have your head shaved as you watch it fall to the floor in the mirror
Its hard to have the one you love caress and kiss your bald head instead of running his fingers through your tresses
But its good the chemotherapy worked and gave me another chance of life
Even if my hair didn't grow back long and strong
It grew back short and straight
And everything's okay

Storytime
The sound was blasting and people were talking loudly. This wasn't her kind of party but her friend had begged her to come,so here she was with her friend out  of sight. She was just standing next to the couch holding her drink when she saw a man by the door in the kitchen.
James,whose party it was,went up to the man and she watched as he gave the man a handful of notes in exchange for a small package.
What was going on? She had her suspicions, so she followed James into the other room.
Sure enough it was as she had suspected. James handed out tablets to a group of his friends and with a cheer they took the tablets and washed them down with a drink from their beer bottles.

The tree of my life grows constantly branching out in new ways. Its blossom attracts people and experiences and we grow together. Some people grow into sparkling diamonds and some people wither with the turning of the seasons,turning into tears which nourish my tree of life.
I am caught up in its branches,nesting in its core,loved,nurtured and cradled safe.

Tipping slowly,this way and that
Its compelling watching the grains slide
How do I decide
Do I tip it fully and release the ravenous demons
To ravish your deceitful soul
Or do I tip it slowly and suffocate them in the sand
Its compelling watching the grains slide
The moment has come to decide........

My grandkids call me Gangsta Granny( David Williams) because she eats cabbage soup and always passes wind.
We wrote this for your amusement... Hopefully you will find it funny...toilet humour as I call it ,which children always find funny...
Granny why do you eat so much cauliflower, it only makes you trump
Granny why do you eat so much broccoli, it only makes you fart
Granny why do you eat so many leeks ,they only make you blow off
Granny why are you always letting one go
Why my darling grandchildren ,as if you didn't know
I'm a vegetarian ,and vegetables are what I eat
Gassy brassicas produce loud farts
Pretending it wasn't you that did it is a fine art!!!!😱👼💣

"We had a good thing going but you couldn't keep your promise and it destroyed what we had" she cried.
He looked at her and pulled his warrant card out.
" We never had anything going,everything I said to you was said to gain your trust". " We have been monitoring you for a long time but couldn't get enough evidence".
"I've got enough now and you are under arrest for money laundering,drug trafficking and murder".
He opened the door and walked out to allow a squad of police officers in to make the arrest.

If I could fly my wishes to you
I'd do it a thousand times more
If I could feel your hand folded in mine
I'd want it a thousand times more
If I could kiss your lips again
I'd kiss them a thousand times more
If I could see your smile again
I'd want to see it a thousand times more
If only.........💔

Wishes folded by a fair hand
Sent to fly to a foreign land
Like a message in a bottle
Sent out to sea
Wondering if someone will respond to me
Lifted by air
Carried on a current
Landing who knows where
Left crumpled by the wayside
In a puddle or a hedge row
Or found by a kindly passerby
Wishes returned are all that I ask
A communication with someone that will last

New world
If I woke up tomorrow and we were all equal
What a good world that would be
Equal rights,equal pay,equal education
Equal healthcare,equal childcare
Equal food distribution
The list is endless
But I wonder how long that world would last
For in that world would there still be people
Whose sense of entitlement makes them think they deserve more
People who think they don't have to work for what they get
People who are deceitful and always find underhand ways to get more
It would be a wonderful world if it lasted
It would be a wonderful dream

I'm tired of the rat race
The superspeed,live it fast pace
Time is money,money is the goal
I feel like I've dropped into a big dark hole
My briefcase is like a stone around my neck
My body feels like its been in a train wreck

This park bench is now my world
I've just walked away from my job
I'll lie here and watch the clouds
As they go drifting by
I'll laze to the sound of the lawnmower
As the gardener trims the grass
I'll dream about what I could do next
Imagine what I could be
Then I'll go home and face the wife
I'm pretty sure I know what she will say to me.

What are you hiding when you hide your eyes
Won't you give me a chance to make them sparkle with laughter laughter

Standing before the mirror
The evidence was clear
Her shape was slowly shifting
She was no longer magnificent
Her flame was slowly dying
She was being drawn back into that soulless dark place
If she went outside now people would notice the changes in her
There would be a revelation to her family
A revelation they were not ready for
She turned from the mirror and lay on the bed waiting for the darkness to consume her and extinguish her flame

Martha's got us thinking
I got to try to do this
Although its hard!
Got the brain working
Changing words around

Sun high in sky
Birds fly
Clouds float by
Its a spring day
Daffodils nod
Blown by wind
Soil is warming
Grass is growing
Its a spring day
Sun warms my body
As I dig
Plants put in
Radish,broccoli,onion
Its a spring day
Hooray

Live in eternal hope
Life may be hard and bring its challenges
But from the deepest darkest crevice
New life,new dreams,new strength may grow
Push up towards the light
Turn your face to the sun
Branch out tentative roots to seek sustenance
And hope will flourish,flowering into peace,contentment,new understanding about yourself and how strong you really are.
May you never lose hope

Smell the new paper
Its the most magical smell
Today I have two new books for my birthday
By Cathy Bramley and Cecilia Ahern
I can feel the pull radiating from them
But I have to wait until everyone has gone tonight
Then I can sink down on the settee
With a glass of sparkling water
And indulge....Bliss!

I've never been one for travel
I have never owned a passport
Its not my idea of fun to go on a long journey
I'd rather stay near to home ( or even at home!!!)
It gives me negative dreams to have to pack a suitcase
And if I have to pack more than four pairs of knickers
I'm a physical wreck!!
I'm always glad when I reach my destination
Because I know it won't be long before I'm going home

I've been to some beautiful places
Seen some beautiful sights
Spent a few days here there and everywhere
Ate local wonderful food
But nothing looks as good as the sight I see
When I turn onto my drive
My home,my safe haven,my ideal destination
Its the best holiday place for me...
