Stuff and Nonsense

stuff nonsense


A couple of months ago, completely out of the blue, I received an e mail from the editor of an American website, asking if I would be willing to be a guest blogger on their site. They had read my blog and thought that their readers may be interested in what I had to say.

After some serious thought, I decided to give it a go. Here is a link to my first blog.

See what you think!


Excuse me Sir, Can I please come past?

The Cob was extra vigilant this morning


and, although he still found time to complete his ablutions, he kept a wary eye on me, and lashed out at those less wary passers by.


The Cygnets were their normal lovely, fluffy selves but were especially quiet.


Now there are only eight. Yesterday afternoon one of their sisters was attacked and killed by a dog.


Lets hope that the rest manage to survive to adulthood!

Daily Prompt: Understanding

Image & Word

Understanding the lure of blogging is something we all have in common – for whatever reason we may start blogging in the first place, and then keep on blogging, there is always that mesmerising magnetic pull to read just one more engaging post, to like and comment on it, or to write one more post of our own and hope for likes and comments in return.

Just exactly what it is that draws us in and keeps us here is often completely unfathomable to those who do not blog – even our nearest and dearest may not always understand our obsession. But blog we do, linking together virtually across the globe to create something amazing that is somehow so much bigger and better than the simple sum of us…  ❤
