Caressing your face, so it’s hot to touch,

a flick of the fringe to let more in.

Sunshine so hot, you can feel the glare,

there is nothing better to compare.

Summer and sunshine, what’s not to love?

Ice cream in cones, with sprinkles on the top,

sand on your feet, feeling so hot.

Please stay a while as we love you so xx

Two of my grandchildren have started their own blogs so I thought I would just let you all know in case you wanted to have a read. I think they are very good but I am a bit biased! Lol

I must admit I am glad tomorrow is Friday as I am very tired, wanted to get some writing done today but Izzy had bad ear ache and headache so we went to the doctors and now we are putting drops in, he gave her Olive Oil and I immediately thought of my Nan as that was what she put in mine years ago. Must be going back to the old fashioned remedies, I think a lot of those worked very well, some being more natural than medicines of today.

I will finish of tonight with a poem I wrote in class, we then had to think about it at home and re-write the poem or just alter it. I think you will guess what it is? Have a nice evening xx

A Thing I Like
Poem 1

It bursts into life
Bright and flashing
Asking who I am
We sit and share
Fingers darting
Here and there
Complete at last
Saved and ready to share
The lid goes down
Gone for now
Silence is all around

It is smooth to touch, a bit heavy, it looks nice, all shiny, it holds my life, it keeps my secrets and dreams, I would be lost without it, I take it wherever I go, I don’t like anyone touching it, I love it.

Poem 2

Shiny and polished
Looking like new
You belong to me
For eternity
My secrets and dreams
You hold within
I keep you close
Never letting you go
Mine to love
Forever to hold

I think that is pretty amazing. Thank you all so much xx

I thought I would put up a couple of the poems I wrote yesterday to see what you thought!


The rosemary lingers
Smells entwine
You can smell the wine
Apples so crisp and devine
The air is still
Summer has come
The nights are long
Goodbye to winter
You stayed too long


You play so quick
Darting here
I touch you there
You hide from me
You run and jump
Four feet in the air
You come and lay
Looking so sweet
I stroke your fur
You meow at me

I know people have read my blog from last night as it shows in notifications so why is it in a failed post place? Not sure what is going on there, any help appreciated.

Also while I am on the subject how do I turn a page into a post?

I have received some awards so I will be putting them on my blog and following the rules over the next couple of days. I feel it is very encouraging to get these awards, obviously some people are really enjoying reading what I write. I was not too sure about anything when I started this blog but the responses, comments and encouragement that I have had has made me write more on my novel. Also a couple of short stories have been entered in for competitions so It was a much needed boost to my writing.

I find it hard to read all the blogs that I follow but I do as many as I can each day. Time appears to disappear at an alarming rate and I never get to complete everything I set out out to do at the beginning of the day. I feel this may be an age thing but not going to admit to that.

This type of picture I have made with all my grandchildren, it is lovely to treasure as you forget just how tiny their little hands were.

ovely to treasure
