WEEK-END HERE WE COME:

WEEK-END HERE WE COME:
Happy week-end to one and all.
Time to enjoy life and relax.
The problems of the past week behind us,
Also a new month to celebrate at the max.
 
With Halloween on the horizon,
Parties will be being prepared.
Broomsticks being bought by the plenty.
For "The Witches" to fly in the air.
 
I had my shoulder shots yesterday.
All went without a hitch.
I came home and had a rest in bed.
Thinking of the Halloween witch.
 
This moring it was teeming with rain.
So to my bed I returned.
Awoke up again at ten-thirty.
For the sun shinning I did learn.
 
I leapt out of bed in a hurry.
I had my week-end shopping to do.
Did all the rountine morning jobs.
Then out of the door I flew.
 
Lovely to have no pain in my shoulders and neck.
I carried my shopping home.
Then settled myself at my laptop.
Catching up on the blogs yesterday I left alone.
 
Do enjoy your week-end.
Wherever you may be.
It's great to be able to greet one and all.
Later on I am walking to the sea.
 
HAPPY WEEK-END/
Yvonne.

HAVE A PERFECT FRIDAY:

 HAVE A PERFECT FRIDAY:
It;s Friday again,
Also the last day of September,
Where did the month go.
I quite can't remember,

I sincerely hope your Friday is perfect,
With the onset of the week-end.
I wish you health and happiness.
To all my blogging friends.

I am due this morning at the doctors.
To have my shoulder shots.
I will comment on all posts later,
Please don't think I've forgot.
 
It takes a wee while to "Kick In".
So will come home for a lay down.
Hopefully arise later to be pain free,
And not wearing a frown.
 
Once again to you all.
Have a wonderful day.
Whatever the weather and problems.
May happiness come your way.
 
HAPPY FRIDAY:
Yvonne.

THE BLESSINGS OF A FAMILY (IN AN IDEAL WORLD )

 THE BLESSINGS OF A FAMILY:
( IN AN IDEAL WORLD.)
How I hoped it would be:
Pic: above my daughter, son-in law and my four grandchildren:

Having been blessed with a family of three,
A daughter and two sons.
One by one as they entered this world,
Giving so much pleasure and endless fun.
 

 Youngest son John and bride in Spain:
My eldest son Rob, daughter Donna and myself:

Each one unique in every way,
We encouraged their individual talents.
My daughter loved to dance, one son computers,
The other son a footballer that was apparent.

They were reared to be respectful and honest.
Which they are to this very day.
Their decisions they make in their every day life,
Are respected by me all the way.

They have shown such compassion to me.
Since their dear father passed away.
Although one son now resides in Spain,
I hear from him many a day.

We still share that same sense of fun.
As tears of laughter we cried.
When I made a complete fool of myself,
At the park as I did descend the children's slide.

Monetary wealth you can keep.
I'm rich beyond compare.
For in them I have everything.
As my unconditional love they share.

With three children I've been certainly blessed.
Now as a grandmother to grandchildren four.
I am proud and privilledged they are my family,
Who can ask for anything more?

AS  I SAID IN AN IDEAL WORLD:

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY:

WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY:
It's eight thirty as I write,
Already gone for my walk.
The sun is shinning brightly,
Plenty of people did talk.
 
I ambled down to the beach,
The tide was ebbing away.
With a sigh of contentment,
Thinking "This is going to be a wonderful day."
 
May likewise be the same for you,
As your day starts hopefully sunny.
May laughter emerge into your life,
As you find certain events funny.
 
Only a couple of days left in September,
On the horizon is Halloween.
Do have a wonderful Wednesday,
The best it's ever been.
 
HAPPY WEDNESDAY:

THE EYES SAY IT ALL'

THE EYES SAY IT ALL:
Iam late today with my post,
As my annual eye test was due.
I was with the optician for over an hour,
A man of words there were few.
 
He did the regulat test,
Then the questions came from me.
Is everything ok?
This is what he related to me.
 
"One eye is weaker than the other.
Apart from that all is well.
I suppose you do much pc work.
The eyes say it all I can tell"
 
Then he mentioned my black floaters,
That I've had for four years.
"No cause for undue alarm" he said.
Which drove away many fears.

He asked was my pc really necessary,
I replied "Yes" rather too loud.
Told him I had a poetry blog.
And four published books of which I was proud.

I have to return in another six months,
Just to ensure my eyes I'm not ill treating.
I replied "Thanks very much dear optician"
It's people like yourself I like meeting.

WELCOME MONDAY:

WELCOME MONDAY:
The start of a new week.
The last in September.
Do you recall the beginning?
 It's hard to remember.
 
So many things happen,
So many blogs to read.
My "Green Fingered Friend" along the road.
Still planting seeds..
 
Welcome to this wet and windy Monday,
May it be better wherever you may be.
I planned to take a walk today.
Along by my beloved sea.
 
But there are other fish to fry.
If indoors I must remain.
I have a couple of good books I could read,
But it won't somehow be the same.
 
Hope your Monday will be great,
In all you plan to do.
Hoping there will be many blogs to read,
From my blogging friends.....that's you.
 
HAPPY MONDAY:
Yvonne.

PEACEFUL SUNDAY:

PEACEFUL SUNDAY :
Here's hoping your Sunday is peaceful,
After an arduous week.
May sunshine be in abundance,
As solitude one loves to seek.
 
I have already been out walking,
As a painful night Arthritis wise.
Kept me awake from 3am.
But hey! the sun is high in the sky.
 
I am due my six monthly shot this Friday,
For my painful joints I declare.
But there is always someone worse of than I,
So moan I will not dare.
 
I'm still on cloud nine from last Firday,
Watching Danny Boy on TV.
Although I have the aches and pains,
You couldn't find a happier me.
 
HAPPY SUNDAY:
