  9th Jan 




It's winter and it's time for soup
But not the tinned and salty gloop
Lovely veggies fresh and bright
Simmer in the slow cooker all through the night
Add a cube of decent stock or maybe a tasty meaty hock
Stir it every now and then and grind some salt and pepper in.
Fill a pretty china bowl and serve it with a crusty roll

2nd Jan..

Some people like to wear posh frocks
But my addiction's hand knit socks
A little knitting here and there
Behold I made another pair
With gorgeous multicoloured yarn
(I've even thought of knitting plarn)
A stripe appears before my eyes
'You made them' everybody cries
The look upon the face of friends
They say 'your talent never ends'
But really, you should have a go
Just take your time and go real slow
You'll struggle for a little while
But once you master it you'll smile
And then you'll be addicted too
you'll make a pair for every shoe.

27th Jan


 Give me fields of green and roses around the door. 
A handful of chickens and a huge log store
On a cold winter's night with a fire to keep us warm
Thick heavy curtains quiet the sound of any storm 
I'd like bright blue skies and birds that sing
Fill my pantry with food then I wouldn't need a thing


22nd January 2019

The weathers turning very cold
My bones all ache I'm getting old
I think tonight my hearts desire
would be to sit next to the fire
But out to carving club we'll go
And pray it doesn't flippin snow..

Booklets and brochures and magazine pages

Paper backed novels that simply take ages

Of time from the housework that I should be doing

Or Knitting or crafting and sticking and glueing

Cookery books with beautiful pictures

Home style books with fittings and fixtures

Cheap little novels to read while in bed

Encyclopedias to fill up my head

With knowledge and all kinds of strange information

Or free newspapers to read at the station

While waiting for trains in all kinds of weather

But best of all books that are bound up in leather

==========================================================================

                                                          Home

A pond, a lawn a flower border
A stash to please the hoardiest hoarder
A little tank of baby fish
A favourite homecooked tasty dish
Pretty twinkling coloured lights
A star filled sky on summer nights
The things of home are much loved treasures
To fill my hours with crafting pleasures

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

On no! the subjects turned to camping
Sleeping in a tent
Bugs and beasties sneaking in with nasty ill intent
Pouring rain and bitter winds will make your weekend suck
Especially when a trip outside covers you with muck

But hang on now I'm all grown up I rather fancy camping
All the fun of outdoor life is now disguised as glamping
I'll bring some wine and lovely snacks and maybe sit and read
And if those flippin insects bite I'll beat them till they bleed
