Hello everyone.  I hope you are all well and having a great February.  I’m sure plenty of you know or if you didn’t might have spotted that I’ve been less active than usual.  I’ve reduced my posting schedule to just three a week (going out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday), been slow to reply to comments and I’ve not been around much on everyone else’s blogs.  No it hasn’t been a love of the Winter Olympics that’s kept me away, although I will admit that I am a fan of watching both the summer and winter Olympics.  First I’d like to apologise for being away for quite a bit.  Things have been a bit uphill in my personal life lately.  Apart from planning a move and the stress and complications of that and other things, I’ve had a bit of an accident too which has put me in a bit of a low mood recently.

January 2018 Round-up #MPBooks

Picture of reading in bed

So the first month of January feels as if it has flown by and I’ve been very busy.  Not only have I managed to post a lot of stuff on my blog and get back to pre-scheduling most posts, but I’ve also been busy in the offline world.  My time with blogging is going to be hampered a little bit though over the next month as I’ll be away for a bit, but I’ll still keep reading (I just can’t help but love reading!) and do my best to not let it look like I’ve disappeared.  To those kind friends who worry, don’t worry, I’m not pushing myself or anything, I have a lot of pre-saved posts all ready to go so you might not even notice I’m gone! lol  In the online world I also have some more exciting news to share but I want to save that until a little later when I’m sure everything’s going well.  So anyway, on to what’s happened in the last month…Read More »

#Poetry: Dark Cavity #MPBooks

After seeing the daily prompt word was Cavity, I decided to search for the word ‘cavity’ on The above picture was part of the search results and the following poem came about from my mind. But I have to warn you it’s not a happy one and may upset some people, though it’s an issue close to my heart so I felt it needed to be voiced. ❤Read More »

#Poetry: A Brilliant Idea! #MPBooks

An idea

Has this ever happened to you?…

A Brilliant Idea!

I had a brilliant idea today,
Of blog post for you to read,
One that would make you smile,
Make you click on it in your feed.

But then a knock at the door,
Distracted me for a while,
And when I returned to write,
I dropped my very smile.

What was I going to write,
Oh, what was I going to say,
Write a funny story,
An article or a play?

I’d forgotten all the words,
The very core of my post,
I thought I could remember,
Think back…..Almost.

But no, they were now gone,
Never to be here returned,
I should have written it down,
A painful lesson learned.

So here is what I wrote,
A little poem for you instead,
Maybe you’ll think it funny,
Or a balloon filled with lead.

So has that ever happened to you?  Have you ever had to substitute a post or write something different because you forgot what you were going to write?  Let me know I love hearing from you 🙂

#Poetry: The Real Me? #MPBooks

Hello everyone.  I’m afraid I’m a bit behind since New Year with getting out my posts.  They are coming but I’ve been away and so it’s taking longer than planned.  Anyway, just a quick poem for you today.  Please be aware that this is a poem on the darker side, in case you are not a fan of that type.  Enjoy 🙂

The Real Me?

Did I share a part of myself,
Or would I run and hide?
Bared all and told truth,
Or wrote pretends and lied?

Did I open up myself,
Or close you off from mind?
Let you see the truth inside,
Or leave all me to find?

Did you enter inside heart,
Or would I put defence?
Let you touch deep within,
Or make space between dense?

Did you ever see true me,
Or would I keep apart?
Let you be so close to soul,
Or close away my heart?

Inspired by the daily prompt Reservation.

Did you enjoy the poem?  Do you have reservations about people or things?  Let me know any and all thoughts I’d love to hear from you 🙂

Happy New Year everyone!  I hope you enjoy any New Year celebrations you may be going to and wish you all a great year for 2018.  I hope all of us get to realise our dreams or at the very least have a happy year.  I wrote a quick poem for today which I hope you’ll all enjoy 🙂 🙂 😀 🎉

On New Year’s Eve

On this new year’s eve I pray,
For each and all to have good day.
For all you worries, strife and woe,
Be left behind, or you outgrow.
For all you cares, hopes and dreams,
Be realised or within means.
On this new year’ eve I pray,
For each, good life, to come your way.

I’ll be a bit busy on New Year’s Day so my post tomorrow will be a review I’ve pre-scheduled, and I may be late to reply to messages, but I wish you all Happy New Year again and I’ll chat and be back soon 🙂

How are you spending your New Year’s celebrations?  Doing or going anywhere?  Or do you like to enjoy New Year’s cosy at home, or not celebrate at all?  Let me know I’d love to hear from you and again, Happy New Year!
