3 things about me.

  • I am obsessed with history.
  • My favourite tree is the Oak tree.
  • I make a very nice rhubarb crumble.

 

Questions from Beckie:

  1. What is your favourite Olympic Event?
  2. What colour makes you happy, and what colour makes you mad… And, why?
  3. What is your favourite meal of the day, and what would it be?
  4. Non-fiction or Fictional movies, what do you prefer and why?
  5. If a squirrel falls out of a tree in the forest, does anybody hear it?  (Hah!  I’m running out of ideas for questions here, folks!) LOL! 🤣

 

My Answers:

  1. I detest sport but have been known to watch a bit of Ice Skating or Athletics.
  2. I love bright yellows, they make me happy. I think a dingy grey/brown would make me feel low, not necessarily mad. I don’t know about mad….?
  3. I enjoy lunch (the meal that is eaten in the middle of the day for those of you who call this Dinner, for some strange reason). I really like a simple sandwich, two slices of buttered bread with ham, cheddar cheese and pickle that’s nice. I also like baked beans on toast for any meal. Hmm, I’m feeling really hungry now!
  4. It depends on what mood I am in. I prefer fictional films but recently have watched a lot of documentary films about Jack the Ripper. There is so much guesswork about the Whitechapel murders that is it practically fiction.
  5. When the squirrel fell from the tree tops it was probably captured by people on their mobile phones and sent all over the world on social media. It’s probably gone Viral by now.

 

So, my favourite personal post….

This one is a recent favourite. It was a comedy poem I wrote called the Ballad of Ted and Flo.

Twittering Tales – Maiden Flight.

Photo by Adhitya Andanu at Pexels.com

 

Past obscuring lines of rain

I see the waiting aeroplane

A rising panic grips my chest

Like pangs of hunger manifest

I take a pill to ease my stress

The panic pains soon regress

I conquered fear, my mental plight

Now it’s my maiden Pilots flight

I feel brilliantly

Won’t you fly with me?
