WELCOME TO THE NEW WEEK:

WELCOME TO THE NEW WEEK:
Another new week has entered the scene,
Last week's worries behind us.
Hoping all will benefit.
From happiness and no fuss.
 
Yesterday was exceedingly hot,
Again I remained indoors.
Did much reading and watching TV,
After doing household chores.
 
Already at the middle of July,
The gardens look very sad.
This is the second dryest summer
The UK has ever had.
 
The birds are looking 
For a much needed drink.
Sadness in their songs,
Well, that's what I think.
 
Do have a wonderful week.
Whatever comes your way.
Whether on holiday or at work.
So precious is every day.

MEMORIES:

 MEMORIES:
Today marks the 20th annioversary
of the passing of my mother:
I have happy memories of my mum.
Below is my tribute.


MY MUM:

You were a mum in a million.
One with a heart of gold.
Your first priority was your family,
Your memory will never grow old.

Although your life was very tough,
You taught me right from wrong.
You set me a good example.
Your love made me strong.

I thank you for so many things
You sacrificed for me.
Yes, life was very tough for you.
Dad died when I was three.

Throughout my life you were always there
When I needed you.
Twenty years ago the roles were reversed
As I spent your last day with you.

As I sat and held your hand
As you passed from one life to another.
With tears in my eyes, I said my gooddbyes.
To a lady I was proud to call mother.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN:
From the book Negative V. Positive.

FRIDAY THE 13TH:

I took a few days off but thought I would come back
as I missed the company .Much to be said
about having a blog.

FRIDAY THE 13TH:
I hope no more problems
Come knocking at my door.
Although it's Friday the 13th.
I could do without anymore.

I sincerely hope your day,
Is fine from head to toes.
That you experience none
Of the Friday the 13th woes.

Weather is still hot,
Although today thunder is about.
But tomorrow onwards it's getting hotter.
It dosen't bear thinking about.

Whatever Friday the 13th
Have in store for you.
Just wear a smile on your face,
And let the sun come shinning through
(which isn't hard here)

HAPPY TUESDAY:

HAPPY TUESDAY:
I sincerely hope today is great.
Better than yesterday.
The events and high temperatures of late,
Had me in bed you see.
 
The heat is overpowering,
So much to catch up on.
Today after a brisk early walk.
Will be at home not having much fun.
 
Tennessee is still around.
A pleasure I may say.
It's good to see him laying on the mat
For a few hours every day.
 
May your Tuesday be awesome.
Full of happiness and cheer.
It's good for me throughout my problems,
Kowing you've  always been here.
 
HAPPY TUESDAY:

PEACEFUL SUNDAY:

PEACEFUL SUNDAY:
May peace be with you,
On this hot Sunday.
People off to church.
To the "Good Lord" to pray.

A day of togetherness,
Within the family.
Of course that's not always possible,
But nonethe less be happy.

Here in my part of the world,
Temperatures are extremely high.
I go out very early,
As I look towards the sky.

Again at the heat of the day,
I shall remain indoors.
Taking life  as easily as I can.
Thinking of my beloved shore.

Happy Sunday to you all.
May your plans come true.
Again  I will say,
I'll be thinking of you.

RELAX IT'S THE WEEKEND:

RELAX IT'S THE WEEKEND:
 
Well folk at last my water problems 
Are well and truly done.
I'm going to spend the entire weekend.
Relaxing and perhaps have some fun.
 
I am now back in my apartment.
Tennessee missed me I think.
Since having that unwanted leak.
Under my kitchen sink.
 
The plumber completed his work,
But before going merrily on his way.
Sorted out a problem with my pc.
So to him my thanks I do relay.
 
The household chores can wait.
As I mentioned relaxation time for me.
Should it get too hot.
I'll watch some weekend TV.
 
The dust can wait until Monday,
I think I deserve a rest.
After all the upheavel of the past week.
I was certainly put to the test.
 
May your weekend go smoothly.
Happiness whatever you do.
You can be sure whilst I'm relaxing,
I'll be thinking of good friends like you.

I'M SORRY:

I'M SORRY:
I apologise for deleting yesterday's post,
I had more problems with the water here.
They had to disconect my entire supply,
I had to sleep elsewhere I fear.

They are returning again today,
Hopefully all will be well.
But who can say...I don't know.
This to you I tell.

I will repost  the ISWG,
At a later time.
Happy Indepencance Day.
As I close this short apologetic rhyme.
