Hey buddies, gonna sign off from WordyPress for a while. Catch up at some stage…look after yourselves x
I set myself the little task
To answer Word Prompts all through May
But there’s no chance it’s happening
Because today is Saturday!
I’m heading out and don’t have time
To fumble in my little head
‘Skewed’ is much to hard to rhyme
So I’ll end with ‘bumbershoot’* instead.
*actually a real word much to my flabbergastment**
**Not a real word
What makes you stronger?
Makes you better?
And are you doing much doing to get it?
Shed old skins and jump right in
Cos you deserve just what you want
Just as much as the next who comes along
Don’t be waiting for a better day
Cos sometime you’ll be old
With nothing but what ifs to shield you from the cold
So do it now
Life is on your side
And so am I….
It’s Friiiday night! I’m still hanging out with my buddy Lance who I might add is the size of a Shetland pony.
Me and my duckling brought him for a little saunter and I feared he would spot a pigeon because she would have been flying after him like a paper bag caught in an updraft!
There have been a few questions such as “could he carry me on his back?” so I’m keeping a close eye in case she sticks a saddle on him when my back’s turned…
David Attenborough: “Deep in the tropical forests of Belfast, we observe a fine specimen in his natural habitat…”
Did anyone notice I missed Sharesday last week for the first time?! The horror! Holy bejebus the horror!
I doubt anyone actually noticed…I certainly didn’t cotton on until at least Sunday!
This week’s poem is a Dylan Thomas classic:
Rage against whatever might be trying to snuff your light my compadres! Should something be trying to halt your gallop, take a massive baseball bat and knock it out of the park!
Until next time, may your dreams be lovely and your corners be spider free!

Three Things About Me
- I have a hand washing compulsion. I’ve had many weirdy compulsions over the years but I like this one…it’s just good hygiene.
- I baggied my first doggie doos today. Last time I had a dog we didn’t do that sort of thing but I’m doggie-sitting my buddy Lance this week so I braved myself and got on with it. Please note I didn’t miss the look of disdain he gave me as I did it…”yeah beyotch…..pick it up”.
- I’m a great believer in synchronicity, it’s how I make my decisions.

Questions I Was Asked:
How DO YOU fold a fitted sheet?
You don’t. You roll the frigging thing in a ball and stuff it in a drawer until it’s needed. Whoever suggested you should fold a fitted sheet is also responsible for Chinese water torture.
What is REALLY meant by the phrase ‘Love is in the air?’
I assume it’s wintertime and everyone’s trying to stay warm…so it’s ankles. Ankles are in the air. (Please note the most common birthday is 30th September….coinkydink? I think not)
What was the weirdest, strangest and most mysterious phone call you ever took or made?
Honestly that’s a skeleton in the closet so I’m gonna plead the fifth on that one. However, my home number is very similar to a local hospital so I’ve confirmed an awful lot appointments and given quite a bit of medical advice over the last 7 years…to be fair I only did it to rude people who insisted they had the correct number.
This is a real mystery – would you rather be ugly as sin and live forever or look as attractively sexy as was possible, but die in a year?
I would hate to live forever and have zero fear of death so option deux. Although I’ve never had a desire to be ‘sexy’ either so….
Ok, ok, here’s the cliff hanger – you are offered £$/100,000 to eat a bowl of mixed bugs – you know crunchy mealworms, slimy earthworms, buzzing crickets, wrinkly woodlice and moist maggots and the list goes on – would you eat it and be richer or not?
Yup, pass me the condiments. If it would better my baby birds life I’m up for it. 4 years of university fees or a once in a lifetime holiday across America just cos I ate a handful of crawlies? No bother, give me extras!
I’m not gonna nominate anyone this time round but I have another few nominations waiting to reply to so be prepared!
