Windmills Of My Mind.

Hi, . There was I, sitting quietly and minding my own business, looking through all of the background information that I can access, whilst fiddling around with the running of my Jaksie site. I did not feel like moving at all, because I had just made Big H and myself a huge bowl of chilli […]

Christmas Is Coming.

Season’s Greetings, . Have you bought any Christmas presents yet? I haven’t, even though, after last Christmas, I swore that I would. It would surely have felt very smug to watch everyone else worrying, and scattering around in the last minute crowds, while I had everything beautifully wrapped and tagged by Easter, and waiting on […]

Poem: Hippopotamus.

Weekend’s Nigh.

Hi, So it is Friday again, where on earth did the rest of the week go. I don’t seem to have done anything but apply miles of gloss paint to everything in sight. . Here today, where I live, the weather can only be described as very, very, wet, but it will be very refreshing […]

Different Strokes.
