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

Happy Waitangi Day, New Zealand

A fun week for me so far...

Monday was my second to last CBT session with my therapist. Loved it and will write about it in detail on my health and wellness blog at a later stage.

Wednesday was Waitangi Day, a public holiday in New Zealand. Whitesnake and I spent the day relaxing at home as it was a hot day. Actually we've enjoyed several hot days recently but thankfully today, the rain is falling and watering our vegetables and garden.

Here's a photo I took on Waitangi Day, which I am sharing with Skywatch Friday.

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you again soon.

Poetry: Gossip

Post bumped up to share with with Poetry Pantry ,originally posted 27/4/2011

Sweet seduction
Sows the seed
Wanting, yearning
Fulfilling needs

Momentum builds
No turning back
Doubt consumes
Fuels the attack

Whispers abound
Rumours spread
Pulling back
No searching ahead

Truth forgotten
Scandal full blown
Lies take on
A life of their own

See ya later

Rescued Hens

These little beauties used to live in cages until our lovely neighbours adopted them. The girls look so much healthier than when they were first brought home. Hubby and I feed them when our neighbours travel. This morning, they were waiting at the gate for us.  I love the clucking noise they make when they hear us coming and the fresh eggs are delicious.
