BREAKING NEWS! It’s Happened!

Sources all across the planet are saying it has happened. A spokeswoman in a Southern Asian State quoted off-camera part of a paragraph of a speech given by a neighbouring country’s premier, “We were in session when it occurred. My internal ministry have had confirmation from both internal and external ministerial attachés that it happened just before 4pm local time.” A government official in a … Continue reading BREAKING NEWS!

Keeping Legends Going

 Another day short for time, so another cheeky repost. Or two, as today is concerned. The prologue was actually the first part, but needed a little extra adding to it, so I’ve posted it here with part one, which is actually part two: Prologue The Gods and Goddesses gathered in the Great Hall on Mount Olympus, for their daily view on the affairs of the … Continue reading Keeping Legends Going


Keeping Legends Living

As time is a little short, I have several fine, new and wondrous folk following my blog, and I have posts to post if I want to reach my target of 2,000 posts by New Year’s Eve, I’ve taken the decision to use a shortcut this evening, and repost a little legend I shared back in 2012. Hopefully my long time followers have forgotten this … Continue reading Keeping Legends Living


Palm Trees

At the moment, time is in very short supply. Around here, anyway. But, every now and then, I have to make time to do something just a little different. Or not, as the case may be. I haven’t done anything in watercolour for about ten years now, so decided that the time was right for another go. And, as coincidence would have it, Charlie’s adventure … Continue reading Palm Trees


Wordle: Washday

It was the final straw. Clothes strewn across the floor. Laundry basket upside down, Socks writhed around the dressing gown, Inside out tie dye shirts And a major darks with lights alert. Sunday bests with overalls Deplorable… and that’s not all… A new washing powder yet to try Spring-fresh something with wild rye And conditioner – that me doth smite I ran out of it … Continue reading Wordle: Washday


Missing Eclipses

I’m fascinated by the skies, you may or may not be aware. If I’m not flying around in them, I’m staring upwards. Sometimes at the sky, sometimes beyond it. My head is very often up in the clouds… I’m either daydreaming or looking to see something magical happen. There’s a Lunar Eclipse taking place right now, as I type. I can’t see it, however, the … Continue reading Missing Eclipses



There’s  a storm-a-brewin’ out in the Grinds. Heavy, yellow skies, lengthened rumbles of distant thunder, and flashes of sheet lightning kind of give the game away. The shadows seem darker. The air heavier. The rain just a bit wetter. And the wind is almost blowing a gale! The power’s out in the Mansion. I’m typing on emergency back up power, provided by the antiquated generators … Continue reading Storm!


Cave Magic

  Enid shivered beneath the great rock. Carmichael tried his best to keep the fire burning, but the strong winds and torrential rain thwarted his every move. They were both caked in mud, as was Snowy, the normally pure white cat that had strangely befriended them. “I wish I could find us somewhere better to live, Enid.” Carmichael sounded dejected. “We’re doing fine” Enid replied, … Continue reading Cave Magic
