About Me

My photo
I work, I study, I play, I laugh, I sing out loud, I skip, I drink too much coffee, I love great food, I bake, I write, I try and be a good mum and wife, I sometimes do housework!!!

Daisy Chains


You sought to woo me

and bedazzle me

with over the top

grand gestures

a myriad of flowers

filling your car boot

to over flowing

they were beautiful

so perfect, so beguiling

but complete madness

a bouquet of utter folly

my heart cried

my soul was pierced

tears filled my eyes

you tried so hard

yet you were never

going to capture me

its life’s irony

you see

for I was to be content

with a simple daisy chain

picked on Anlabee’s hill.

Monday Musings....

'One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.'

My quote today comes form one of my favourite writers.....I am desperately trying to think well as I aim to hand in another essay today, so I think perhaps I need to go and eat well!!

"Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home."

May you be found today snuggling cosily and taking time with dearly loved ones.
