Sitting on the decking in the Summer sun.

  “What?” “Nothing !” “What are you looking at ?” “I’m just looking at you.” “You’re always looking at me ! What’s wrong ?” ” Nothing’s wrong. I am allowed look at you, you know !” “You’re weird ! ” “Yea ! But I’m your weird ! ” Silence. “I love you !” “Love you…

Thinking out Loud

Does anybody else remember those happy days when reporting on golf was restricted to the British Open and occasionally the Irish Open ? And if they were reported on at all it was always the last it… Source: Thinking out Loud

It has been two years since I started this mission to get back in good health. I quit smoking, started working out and changed my diet to eating from nature. In the last several months I have made some changes for the worst. I have been skipping workouts and…

New Year ” resolutions ” part 3

As regards taking a break from alcohol, it’s not so much the social occasions that cause me concern. Over the years I’ve thoroughly enjoyed nights out on the “dry”, taking my turn as the designated driver. Nights  not driving were always a different matter entirely ! We don’t have a hectic social life anyway and…

New Year “resolutions” 2016 ( part one)

The first Monday of the New Year has arrived and I feel that this is the day when my New Year begins. Generally speaking I hate New Year with its attendant hoopla and fuss. I never really got it. I just saw it as the end of a year and not the promise of something…

A Fish Out of Water

Floundering around lost ! Made the same mistake this morning as I did on Monday . I couldn’t contain my enthusiasm, so I started working from my phone, from the bed. Without knowing what I was doing, I somehow managed to change my theme. Success you might think, but not to my mind as I…

I must say I’m very excited about today’s Blogging101 task. As soon as I got the task,about two hours ago, I started reading the various links , suggestions and ” how-to ” associated with it. The possibilities are endless. I’ll just have to rein myself in and curtail my enthusiasm, as I fear I may…

Nearly There

Ok. I’m nearly there for today. The first thing I did this morning was to reach for my phone to check my mail in eager anticipation of what today’s task would be. I allowed myself the usual morning necessities and finally, indeed impatiently , got to work around 11.00. Being new to this brave new…

Update

I’ve been at this all day, hopefully getting somewhere. Today’s assignment was to take control of my title and tag line, which I did. Yesterday’s was to write an introduction, which I’m not sure whether I have or not . That’s not strictly true as I wrote at least two introductions, both of which I…

Classic fail !!

I’ve been meaning for some time now to return to the blogging world. As a result I got very excited last week when I got WordPress’ email relating to Blogging U 101 and subsequently registered for the course. I got the welcome email almost immediately and as promised I recieved my first assignment on Monday….
