EXTRA LONG WEEK-END:

EXTRA LONG WEEK-END:
Happy Friday one and all,
The lead up to the week-end.
Let's hope it is a happy one.
To each and everyone my friends.
 
Here in the UK, this week-end
Is a Public Holiday.
People spend Monday home.
So next week it's start on Tuesday.
 
It is the last Public Holiday
Before Christmas would you believe?
Much Christmas decorations and cards
Are in the shops...what are they trying to achieve?
 
It's going to be another hot day here,
Yesterday was hot and over powering.
We;re not used to this kind of heat,
Many folk, myself included are apt to extra showering.

May Friday bring you happiness and joy,
With whatever you may do.
I think I will remain indoors today.
And from my window look at the view.

HAVE A GOOD THURSDAY:

HAVE A GOOD THURSDAY:
Today we've been promised
A temperature of 89 degrees.
If that occurs by the end of the day,
I'll be down on my knees.

Last evening there was thunder in the distance
But it didn't come our way.
I'm not to keen on those sort of storms,
Is all I'm going to say.

Today Is another hair day for me,
Providing it dosen't get too hot.
As it's a lunchtime appointment,
And I certainly don't want to get too hot

I hope your day and weather,
Is all you want it to be.
That you can retire at the end of the day,
With gratitude for a wonderful Thusraday.
HAPPY THURSDAY;
Yvonne.

MY SPECIAL DAY:

 MY SPECIAL DAY:
Today would have been my wedding anniversary,
I was married many years ago.
When I look back on that day.
My heart has a special glow.

I recall walking down the aisle,
On the arm of my brother who gave me away.
Tears of joy were in my eyes,
That was evident to say.

We were married on my mothers' birthday.
Knowing how thrilled she would be.
It was my way of saying thank you,
For all she did and meant to me.
 
It was a lovely happy day,
Albeit the weather was not.
The atmosphere of friends and family,
To me meant such alot.
 
Sadly hubby and mum no longer here,
Two months separated their passings.
But today I will "Celebrate" alone.
My precious memories everlasting.

TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS OF MY LANDLINE PHONE:

TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS
OF MY LANDLINE PHONE:
 
My landline phone has broken,
I need it beyond compare.
For I wear a buzzer around my neck,
As being Epiletic I can press should I need care.
 
It is run through my landline phone,
So Saturday off I went.
To buy another phone,
I think it was money well worth spent.
 
The phone techician is coming today
To set up my new phone.
When I opened up the box
It was not alone.
 
There were THREE phones inside,
Having a small apartment I just need one.
Where to locate the other two,
Should be so much fun.
 
I suppose I put one in the bathroom,
But I usually take my cell phone in there.
Or even in the kitchen,
But there's not sockets there.
 
It will be interesting 
When the techician arrives today.
I think I can dispense with the other tao phones,
And let him take them away.

WHAT CAME WITH THE MAIL:

 WHAT CAME WITH THE MAIL:
On Saturday I picked up the mail
From the floor.
Thinking oh dear! more bills,
That continue to come for ever more.

I got inside my apartment.
Glanced through the letters one by one.
Lo and behold I had a surprise,
There was one from my grand daughter and grandsons.
 Granddaughter Lara.
Lara with TJ and Joshua:
 
They sent me a couple of photo's.
Taken when they went away.
My they are growing up fast.
To myself I happened to say.
 
It was a lovely surprise I can tell you.
To think they had thought of me.
So I thought I would put it on Blogshepre/
For everyone to see.

HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY:

 HAVE A GREAT SUNDAY:
The day of relaxation 
Has come round again.
Hope all is well,
And free from sorrow and pain.

Many will be attending the House of the Lord,
Giving thanks and gratitude for their lot in life.
Things could be worse,
Causing endless stress and strife.

Other's may be having an 
Extra hour or so in bed.
Having been working hard all week,
After all is done and said.

Many people go out for Sunday lunch.
It saves the lady of the house cooking.
Going to a favourite restuarant,
One need to ensure a booking.

We bade farewell to the Olympics today.
The closing ceremony I hope to see.
Four years hard work for the athlete's now over,
A well earned holiday for many will be.
I'm still tonning my muscles,
Not like the caption above.
Do enjoy your Sunday.
Sent from the UK. with love.

YESTERDAY HERE IN BOURNEMOUTH:

 YESTERDAY HERE AT BOURNEMOUTH:
The day started very wet I may say,
Thought I was in for a quiet day.
It rained heavily until noon.
Had my lunch ....going out soon.

Suddenly a tremndous noise,
Came from the sky above.
Shattering the peace of the day,
A noise I did not love.

The birds flew and squawked in terror,
Fleeing a once peaceful scene.
Flew away in multitudes.
If you know what I mean.

The reason for this disturbance,
Was the annual Bournemouth Air Display.
Which go on for hours,
For three concectutive days.

Four hours later all was calm.
Birds returning to their nest.
All was peaceful yet again,
Me watching the Olympics no lesss.

Suddenly at eight pm.
The birds and I got the fright I'm sure will last
It was the famous Red Arrows.
Doing their annual fly past..


Frightened birds flying off:
 The Red Arrows in flight:
Today and tomorrow it will be repeated.
I'm sure the birds don't understand.
The noise was like "World War Three"
As they fly to a safer land
