Dream ...



I am a dreamer

Both awake and asleep

Ethereal and calm dreams when awake

Strange wacky dreams when I'm asleep

Dissecting my day with normality and oddness combined



And I'm never afraid to ask questions

How do you know 

If you don't ask



Don't guess

And never ever second guess

Ask




Or just quietly curl up in a basket ... and dream.

Just a Bunch of Weirdos



I like to speak my mind


I like people to be honest with me

I'm sick of pussy footing around



Of he said she said

Of don't tell, don't let it out



Say what you mean

And mean what you say








And it seems Dr Seuss agrees

When you love ...



It says it all really



I am working towards it

I am almost there

The Cupboards of my Mind



I'm still getting rid


Nothing has left the house

YET



But the next car boot will see me selling the nitty gritty

The last bits and pieces of things

That have lurked in cupboards



Pulled out

Put back

Not paying their rent by being used



Cluttering up the cupboards of my mind




Any money I make

Will finance days out



Time with loved ones

Meals

Wine

... the laughter and memories are free


💙

Good Enough



I'm me


And boy oh boy

Am I good enough


Sometimes it can takes years to be able to say that

Until you are old and grey

And wearing purple



But I'm putting it out there now


Because

I'm me

And actually I'm MORE than good enough


💜

If it feels right ...



There is no shame in moving on



In living life

In loving life


Don't think things through 

So slowly you don't do them



Act now

While the passion burns in your soul

Expecting Less



It's always a shame  

When you have to begin to expect less of someone

Relationships whither and die



It's not a beginning 

It's an end



But my worth is unchangeable




One easy lesson

In how to un-fuck yourself



And keep your sanity


💛

The July Minimising Challenge



I've been taking part in the July Minimising Challenge

I keep falling behind 

Simply because I'm not at home to sort



My happy place is not cluttered

And does not need sorting




Today I'm home

And having a catch up

The photo at the top is day twenty

Just done


Today is day twenty four

Just ninety things to find then



Decluttering


💛

Just cows ...



Just cows paddling

On a hot hot day




And favourite films

In special places


💙

Happy Morning


A happy morning

On the deck

Catching up on reading



But at my feet

Looking at me reproachfully



Sits a pack of 'Living Salad' leaves


Bought yesterday

Nibbled at last night 

Waiting



Twenty or so little lettuces 

For one pound 


I'll plant them in a minute 

Honest


💚


If you're with me



If you're with me

You're with me




💚

Be the reason ...



It is sometimes hard

In this fast paced world we live in



To jump ship

To take a step back 

From what is viewed as normal



To be yourself

And to  relish the delicious version

Of you that you find




But do it anyway

Plan Just a Little Bit



Plan just a little bit


Pack a bag

Pot up some spinach and kale

Load the car

Grab the Pug

And hit the open road



 Off we go again


💜

This ...



I don't ask for much



I don't get much

But that is okay 



The man I love

Tries his very best

 To make them all come true

Finding Peace



Trying to find peace

Desperately



But there is no hurry

And still no need for punctuation


💝



Thursday, 12 July 2018

Admit it.



There is no need for any more words than these

Summed up in a sentence ... or two

Tend to Yourself



  I still need reminding

To do most of the above

But I am finding 

That I am beginning to remember much better these days




As long as they're not too thirsty to sing



So as well as watering plants each evening

 I top up all the drinking stations for the wildlife


💚

The older I get ...



Lots of soul searching

Has been going on here recently

You might have guessed

I did



The result



That is for me to know

And understand

And deal with



In my own way

In my own time

With a complete lack of punctuation



But yes I'm fucking furious


🖤

Parts of Me



For too long now

I have kept parts of me

Tempered

Held back

Dormant and docile

In a vain attempt to keep others happy



It didn't work

It never works




Now it's the time to let my happiness shine through

To dance to my music

To let loose the words of my song



💓

Magical Shit



Well I would have 

But I am being thwarted

By no computer access

And hot weather



How can a girl work in a polytunnel 

When it's over 50 degrees 


💛

Figure out who you are ...



It's important to know yourself

Before you can begin to get to know anyone else


To be able to talk to yourself

In a nice way

Before you talk to others



And then and only then can you


And move forward


💚

It can only get better ...



Even if your dog has just killed the two chicks 

That you have been nurturing for the last six weeks.



Finding a little headless body does not make for a brilliant start to the week

 Time to take a deep breath, wipe away the tears 

And tell myself ... it can only get better.
