One of New Zealand's Darkest Days

My heart goes out to the victims and families of this vicious attack. Whitesnake and I are safe but still in shock as nothing like this has ever happened here before. One of the great things I always loved about NZ was that I believed it was a safe place to live, I guess things won't be the same now.

An update from our Prime Minister

New Zealand's darkest day
Yet I have nothing to say
Anger trapped inside
Emotions I try to hide

Numerous countries I have roamed
But New Zealand, she's my home
Her freedom and her safety
You will never take from me!

My poem has been shared with Poetry Pantry

Thank you all for the love and support you have sent  New Zealand during this devastating time.

Introducing Sideshow Bob

Hi all,

Recently I was reading an interesting blog, (unfortunately I can't remember which blogger to thank), showing pictures of beautiful indoor plants. This reminded me that purchasing an indoor plant was on my to-do-list so whoever you are, thank you.

Whitesnake and I decided on a Maidenhair Fern as I'd managed to raise one to a decent age previously, (usually my houseplants die a miserable death). Anyway, we took him home and re potted him ( my houseplants are always male) and sat him in the corner.

Later in the evening, my hubby began chuckling to himself and asked if the plant reminded me of anyone.... now his name is Bob. He's named after Sideshow Bob from The Simpsons. Can you see the resemblance or have we finally lost the plot?

Have a great week

Love KB, Whitesnake and Bob

Another Beautiful Day In South Auckland

 I'm loving the weather this week; sunshine but not too hot. It's also been an expensive week as Whitesnake needed a trip to the dentist. That's all from me today, have a great weekend and I'll see you next week.

Hi all,

A busy week for us with appointments with the doctor and the dentist. I have experienced difficulties with blood pressure in the past so it was fantastic to hear that my blood pressure was perfect!  

Whitesnake and I don't have a lot planned for the weekend so I'm looking forward to lots of reading and blogging. 

Have a great weekend!

She builds me up
When I'm feeling low
No need to think
The words will flow

Sometimes I giggle
At the lines we share
Did I write that
Blissfully unaware

When I'm stuck in a rut
She whispers and taunts 
Words don't make sense 
Her rhymes she flaunts

Silently mocking 
When I'm feeling my best
Lurking beneath the surface
With my misery suppressed

She knows I'll be back
We are one and the same
Her words I must write
Or she'll drive me insane

She's gives herself freely
Time and again
I can't thank her enough 
Poetry, my trusted friend

Valentine's Day

Hi everyone,

Whitesnake and I celebrate Valentine's Day every year. All relationships have ups and downs but I do believe that since we have been together, most days for us are like our version of Valentine's Day.

After we enjoyed a sleep in, our neighbour popped in for coffee and a chat. Whitesnake and I prepared home made pizza together and spent most of the evening watching Game of Thrones. My husband is a huge fan of Game of Thrones but I'm watching it for the first time. I used to laugh when Whitesnake watched the show because every time I walked into the room, there was either bare breasts or fighting so I didn't believe it would be my cup of tea. I'm actually enjoying GOT (which we have started watching from the beginning) and looking forward to reading the books soon.

A relaxing day at home together is our perfect Valentine's Day. Did you celebrate?

Below is a photo taken from our back door which I have shared with SkyWatch

Her prey is found so easily
She spins her web and waits to see
Her trap is set, she'll make it clear
That loving her was your idea

She's the answer to your prayers
She'll steal your heart while you're unawares

A chameleon, swapping and changing
Becoming the girl you dreamt of possessing

She has you now, where she wants you
No turning back, try if you must do
She'll devour you and spit you out
Isn't this what the game's about?

Time to move on,
Find fresh prey
There's plenty more
Begging to play
