Posted on Thu, 11 Jan 2018

the way you have made the first part like small steps, words broken by commas, and end with the release of a flowing sentence is wonderful. I love the last two lines

Maybe the dogs are interested

Posted on Wed, 10 Jan 2018

Maybe the dogs are interested in the "Claws of cats of unsound mind" . Or maybe wondering at the waste of so many potentional dog newspaper stands (trees much better than lamp posts as more absorbant) The Christmas tree frenzy does seem to...

Posted on Sun, 07 Jan 2018

I know it is horrid and stressful when you have to keep adding it up as you go, and putting stuff back, but so long as you have enough money food shopping is such fun? Go vegan, then you won't feel guilty about meat. Shopping in the evening,...

Where you jolt from boring

Posted on Mon, 25 Feb 2013

Posted on Tue, 13 May 2014
