Elaine over at
has nominated me for the Wonderful Team Award. Thank-you so much Elaine.
Do you know my friend? Well, if you do not please take the time to look at her website. She makes lovely jewelry. Here is a little bit about her. Please stop in and say hello.
I live near Cambridge in England and only started blogging to support someone else. I love it, I don’t know why, perhaps I can share that with you when I work it out. Perhaps (more likely) you can tell me?
I live with my husband and three children. (One joined the family by stealth.) The girls are at University now, but you can tell they still live here by the amount of ‘stuff’ left lying around.
I work in a library, which I love and my hobby is making jewellery – maybe I’ll post pictures sometime – especially beaded necklaces and especially working with crystals. I love anything sparkly.
I’m not tidy or organised and my life is chaotic. Happy days.
I was given another award by Billie. The address is;
The award is the Sunshine Award.
Do you know Billie? Once again I urge you to check out her blog. She is humorous, smart and says it like it is.
Here is a little piece of what Billie says about herself.
Life with multiple sclerosis is quite often an uphill battle, but I do not let it bring me down. Eight years after my diagnosis and 3.5 years after retiring from work I have found a schedule, a system, a way of living that suits me well. Main symptoms are fairly the same from 2004/2005, so steep decline has not emerged. I refuse to write “not emerged yet,” because I have time, the pharmaceutical world and holistic therapies at my side. Adapting to severe fatigue still is somewhat of a war between my head and the rest of me but grace to a great bed, lots of free time and understanding friends and family, I can rest and relax as much as I need.
Your FWF prompt this week is a word bank…
lazy – rain – perspective – glint – somber – trinket – static
Standing under the rain drops
Crying out to the Gods
A glint of bright light
Lights up the skies
Flashing shadows and sparks
On the trinket upon her finger
As her eyes looked at it
A different perspective
Could be written
Spreading her arms
Wide going around
In slow lazy circles
No matter how or
Where her mind wandered
The static remained strong
Her feet planted
Firmly on the ground
She was beginning
To come out of her
Somber surrounding her
She knew she was
She had just been
And had said yes.
