how you describe your mother

Posted on Thu, 05 Jul 2018

Very interesting to read his

Posted on Fri, 02 Feb 2018

Very interesting to read his story. I only really knew of him from hearing an interview about how by the time they let working class people into Oxford it was so dummed down there was no point going there, and that the elites never accepted him...

You are quite right Tom, it's

Posted on Sun, 17 Sep 2017

You are quite right Tom, it's just a collection of nature scenes. It's just that I realised that someone from centuries ago could have seen them, too. And while I think of the wood as a beautiful place to go and see the sun and hear the birds....

this is wonderful reading. I

Posted on Mon, 19 Nov 2018

Glad your Mum got to stay at

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018

Glad your Mum got to stay at home. I'm sure your instincts were right. The two care homes I have visted were aweful. The high heels rang a bell. I wonder why they think that looking like they are running a business is...

In an interview someone

Posted on Sat, 10 Nov 2018

In an interview someone famous who had gone to live in America (can't remember who it was) said the thing they missed most about England was the sound of crows cawing in the Autumn. Your poem has a timelessness to it, makes me think this has been...

I didn't know contactless was

Posted on Sat, 03 Nov 2018

I didn't know contactless was so risky! I don't like it because I forget my PIN number if don't use it each time. When I worked in a supermarket we had to check people's signatures carefully for every non cash transaction. Now if you lose a card...
