It has been a very long time since I’ve been woken by erratic words racing through my head, waiting to be caught in a net and sorted to make some semblance of order. Last night was one of those nights. Continue reading →
This poem woke me up and wouldn’t leave me alone. The rhythm feels slightly off towards the last line but it insists it’s following the pattern of lilting and drifting, rhyming within to produce sound and feeling.
It’s that time of year again at our little primary school, when we gather the children and throw them into a time machine, a fantasty world or, in this case, an evacuee’s body and transport them to another place. Welcome to this year’s theme: The Midnight Garden. Continue reading →
It’s the mid-week treat. With snow descending on the UK, gloomy days and freezing temperatures are bringing optimism down. So, to brighten your day, here’s a song to keep you going. For those who watch The Walking Dead, you’ll get it!
Picture this: soft, grey clouds pouting in the sky, blotting out the blue. Does that make you feel miserable? Well, imagine a nice cup of something hot in your hand and a view of the forest, the park, a bustling street in the city – anything to brighten your dreary day. Imagine a huge hug wrapping you up in a warm, snuggly embrace and a whisper in your ear saying, “You are important to me!”
There. Hope your day is awesome and if you feel like reaching out, drop me a message. Sending you all hugs today.
PS. I’m linking you to my blogging pal Trent’s Weekly Smile. Send him a message on what makes you smile this week. Thanks.
It’s the middle of the week and I have a hunkering for a midweek treat. Our heatwave is causing a ruckus with eating habits and I’m burning more energy running around classrooms than I normally do. Not that I’m complaining – it’s nice to have warm hands for a change as I’m usually the poster girl for Frosty.
Warm rays are drying my slightly damp hair and the sounds of children playing interrupt the droning noise of traffic. My son is learning to play netball and has a knack for clap-catch. Still, the appeal of a sweet treat drowns out everything else.
Some exciting things will be developing over the next few weeks which will require more hard work and dedication. I love a challenge, especially when it involves motivating children to find their inner writing talents. NaNoWriMo is a go too which means I might not have time for my own challenge; it’s hard enough finding time to finish my books.
Right, enough chatter. I’m off to find some fudge, chocolate or hidden stash of nougat! Enjoy your Wensfriesday.
My apologies for my erratic posts on such an important day of the week. If you miss my #Wensfriesday commentary, jump over to Twitter and find me there. I usually post something fun to acknowledge of mid-week Friday break. My handle is @mello_elo.
Now my lovely daughter came home today and shared a fantastic YouTube video by Weird Al Yankovic (the same guy that made Michael Jackson’s, I’m Bad, cool!). Here it is…
What an awesome #Wensfriesday. It has fallen on the same day documented in the famous movie, Back To The Future.
My Hubble is crazy about the movies and he introduced them to me many years ago when Marty McFly’s clothing choice was still cool! Timeless action, drama and adventure made this a cult film with a hope to actually reach this auspicious day.
So grab your hover boards, fire up the modified DeLorean and let’s go back to the future!
