Life is what you make it

Penny is in her own bed and asleep when I finish writing my will. I don’t know what is going to happen. Penny has lit a candle, one left over from Christmas. I study her face I think she is still a bit afraid of the dark.She looks innocent, her little turned up nose is slightly pink as are her soft... Sign in to see full entry.

Disaster and the other

‘Come on Archie, we had better head for that sweet little home in Dogrose.’ Archie gives a sarcastic smile. ‘Yes It’s a proper little love nest, the trouble is you are a big cuckoo.’ I ignore him. Why should I trade insults with someone who doesn’t realise what stress I am going through.’ It is... Sign in to see full entry.

What a beautiful little domestic scene, Archie and Albert are sitting like grey ornaments reeking of wood smoke. Goldie has her arm around Penny. I suppose it upsets some men when a woman is sobbing. ‘What’s up with Penny?’ I ask sympathetically, not really wishing to intrude on some-one’s grief.... Sign in to see full entry.

Archie comes up the lane with his old RAV. Albert is lying along the back seat. ‘You are early,' I say as I manoeuvre myself and the urn into the passenger seat. ‘Well,’ Archie replies in a rather superior tone, ‘animals have to be fed, goats milked, and maybe other little things that you don’t...

I suppose in an equinal fantasy Penny is a little pony and Dorothy is a pure bred filly. Both have there good points, but I believe in letting events take there course as I don’t appear to me much good at steering my way along the right track.

Penny is pleased with her lap-top she keeps sending me messages which are really silly and I have to reply or she thinks, well I don’t what she thinks. I have other things on my mind, Dorothy has sent me an e-mail. Dear betrothed could you get me a bottle of distilled water. I can’t think what she... Sign in to see full entry.

spare me

I am glad that I remembered to put my ring back on, I shall have to run a file round inside it. We stand in the hallway; I am holding the rods in one hand, well under one arm.
