MIDWEEK WEDNESDAY:

MIDWEEK WEDNESDAY:
Well after the events of Monday,
Today I have household chores to do.
But before I commence those tiresome tasks.
I wish to say Happy Wednesday to you.
 
May your day be pleasureable,
Full of laughter and fun.
That's my wish to each of you.
I'm off out after my chores are done.
 
HAPPY WEDNESDAY:
YVONNE.

A MOST WEIRD DAY:

A MOST WEIRD DAY:
The start of the week yesterday,
Started weird without a shadow of a doubt.
Please continue to read,
I'll tell you what it was all about.
 
First, our area had an electricity failure,
Emergency lights lit where I do dwell.
Couldn't  use my pc and such,
So caught up with some reading I will tell.
 
In time the electricity returned,
We knew that a hurricane was to hit the UK.
In "Northern Ireland"
A place I once resided I may say.
 
The gentle breeze got stronger,
The lightness of day got dim.
I began to feel uneasy.
So unsure and uncertain.
 
The next scene was like out of a sci fi film,
The once yellow sun turned red.
The sky was completley orange,
As I held my aching head.
 
It remained like that for a few hours,
Was this the "End Of The World?"
As I stood looking out of the window.
Mesmorised by the scene as it unfurled.
 
Well alls well that ends well.
The outside world returned.
The force of the hurricane escaped us.
But a lesson from it I learned.
 
Live for the present,
Forget the worries of yesterday.
Be thankful you're alive.
Is what I would like to say.

YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THIS.......

YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE THIS....:
Yesterday started wonderfully,
Went out for a brisk walk.
Saw many visitors along the way.
Some stopped to have a talk.

I then arrived home,
Rubbish had to be discarded.
Went out to the trash bin.
Then a terrible Sunday started.

My Iphone fell to the ground,
As I disposed of my trash.
The front was truly shattered,
Many thoughts in my mind did flash.

What will I do without my phone,
Should an emergency arise.?
Visions of many situations,
Went before my eyes.

I then went out and bought a new one.
The trouble I had setting it just right.
I returned to the shop,
And told them of my plight.

One kind young man assisted me,
As much as he possibly could.
I then returned home
Wondering why was my head like wood.?

It took all day would you believe.
A few things still not quite right.
But I was so relieved to go to bed
And hopefully sleep through the night.

ONE FROM THE PAST.....MOONGLOW:

ONE FROM THE PAST:
MOONGLOW:
 
The moon shone serenly through the open window.
I gazed in awesome wonder at the view.
In a trance-like state I sit and ponder,
Remembering bygone  years I spent with you.
 
How we used to wonder through the woods,
In the countryside we'd sit and talk.
Then pick some wild flowers to take home.
Laughing all the way as we did walk.
 
Then there were days at the seashore.
Many years before moving there.
We fell asleep on the beach.
Resulting in heat stroke I declare.
 
How long I sat there moon gazing.
Memories came flooding back making me think. 
Just before I closed the curtains,
Once again the "Man In The Moon" gave me a wink.

HAPPY FRIDAY THE 13TH:

HAPPY FIRDAY THE 13TH:
Well it's Friday the 13th.
Already a lucky day for me.
For should you care to read on.
You will plainly see.

I was all set to give up blogging,
As personal problems mounted high.
Then someone gave me some advice,
Which brought tears to my eyes.

The advice was "Don't Go".
 To the world stay connected.
I thought for a while,
Then felt a new surge of energy injected.

Why should I give up life's pleasures,
Because "Bad Weather" comes my way.?
Life  is here for living,
Each and every day.

I may not have my loved ones,
The family I love so dear.
But what I DO have
Is the friendship I find here.

THANK YOU EVERYONE:
HAVE A LUCKY DAY:

MY PC DECIDED TO HAVE AN OFF DAY:

MY PC DECIDED TO HAVE AN OFF DAY:
Yesterday my pc was "Not well"
Decided to have a day off.
Try as I might to fathom the cause.
At me it continually did scoff.
 
Not being techincally minded.
Decided the "Pc  Doctor to call".
He was busy all day he informed me,
But would the evening be ok at all?
 
Well not wanting to be without laptop,
Replied "Come as soon as you can".
I was lost without my dear friend,
And impatiently awaited the "The Computer Man".
 
He arrived at 7pm.
A welcome visitor to you I can tell.
It took him an hour to fix it.
And now it's completely well.
 
I still don't understand the cause.
But now it's working ok.
Computers are like humans I guess.
They too have an off day.

I AM:

After being upset about my son
and wife not speaking on their birthday's
(Which is the first time ever for my son)
I found this poem:
I AM:
I am the same person,
I was the day I first became a mum.
I am still a loving mother,
And will be throughout the time to come.

I am still that same person,
Who saw the kids through their cheers and fears.
I am not far away in thought,
For them I will always be here.

I am still that bewildered person,
That I'm surplus to requirements.
I am so heartbroken,
That I they no longer want.

I am looking forward to the spring,
A time of refreshed hope.
I am that sort of person,
Who want to be able to cope.

I am first a loving mum / grandmother.
I guess I always will.
I am a person with some goals,
That hopefully I'll fulfill.

I am by nature a positive person,
To do the best I can.
I am also very honest and say.
"I AM WHAT I AM.
