there are so many silences..

all are a deafness
that defies all words,

moments chosen,
friendships thwarted,
a need to control
the unknown

I chose silence,
but the white noise
resents my reasoning,

fear and self loathing
take over the lease,
as we run from our shadows
and cleave pathways
in the wilderness,
hacking away at distrust
that is only mine,

fear must be owned
l can do that
but will I
trust me again

will you


  1. You SO need to do your book of poetry - and to meet my friend the poet...glad your xmas was better than expected Onwards and upwards. Lx

    the good thing about not trusting
    is ya can't get burned.
    it's safe-like a storm shelter
    but then,
    you never get to see a storm in all it's glory amd fury
    my guess is you've seen enough storms. I think you're maybe wise to choose the shelter

  3. Hey, if you trust you, then I trust you, and if I trust you, you can be trusted (I think.) In any case, here's hoping all is well, or, if not, soon will be. *HUG*

  4. You must be kind and gracious to yourself. Allow yourself the reality of failure. Trust yourself again and again because you need the confidence to find your way. We all want to regain trust of the ones we love when we have lost theirs. Allow yourself that.

  5. You must have courage, my friend.

  6. Here's wishing that 2011 will be a year of fewer tears shed, of fewer hearts broken, of stronger will, and happiness deserved. For so many of us!
    You, dear, are healing tremendously. Remember when you used to Fat, Frumpy, and Fifty? 'Nuff said.

  7. It's funny, I clicked over here today on the Michael Buble and I read the lines and I thought to myself, not feeling the lines today, that yes, it is a truth but only when you feel as though there is a measure of control. (As I am quite out of control of my life in this moment.) And then I back-read this post and you write, "a need to control the unknown." I'm thinking that perhaps it adds up that when it is that we are absolutely out of control that we feel most lost, most defeated. And then I wonder at my own discovery as I know, ultimately know that we are never in control.

    And so I wonder why I don't feel this song today, this optimism? All of the variables are there and yet I don't. I feel no degree of control.

    Funny how this is. Just trying to figure things out.

    For you, how will you trust you again? How do we trust in anything? I'm not sure of the answer. Perhaps it is just with time that we are assuaged.

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…
