Last night as I lay in the bed of my childhood days, happy to be back to the place I will always call home, I slept contentedly. I had travelled to be with my Mum and family as we remembered my Dad who passed away in 1987 on October 9th. Little did I know that… More I am not racist, but….
Tomorrow it will be close to three decades since my Dad’s final curtain call. I suspect he will be my first thought tomorrow morning and my last tomorrow night.

Yesterday was Monday. Back to school, back to work, back to traffic, back to rushing. Another day over before we knew it? Before we know it, we will be Christmas shopping and welcoming a new year.

I am reminded today of comments I’ve received from friends and my mum, ‘Don’t dare put me in your blog’. Sometimes I’ve ignored them and thankfully I’ve been forgiven. I like to think, despite their protestations, they did in fact like what was written. However appearing on my blog is not for everyone. So today… More A post I wont be writing.
Another week has passed and it’s time once more to discover who has ‘freshly impressed’ me this week on the net.

Okay, deep breath. It’s not easy to write this without a glass of wine in me but I’m going to (and hope I then press publish). Over a year ago a blog buddy of mine, Duncan,from Madhatters, suggested I put some of my posts together and publish a small ebook for Christmas. He said he would… More To writers and my readers… I’m looking for your help please.
