What do I see? I don’t know!

Friday 20th March 2015

Another challenge from Sandra click link below to join in with this fun stuff.




Confused or What!

I have looked so hard,

Tried to see what is there.

But my mind lets me down.

Up and down, everywhere.

The blacks and grey,

All mingle, blend, blur and fuse.

Other people, they look and say,

Those two trees they do not amuse.

Edges looking frosty and dark,

A cold winters morn.

No birds, not even a lark,

Only snow those hills adorn.

Lonely they stand, clouds above,

Blotches of cloud float high.

Here I see no love.

Sadness now, time to sigh.

Maybe I see no snow,

Just grey and white with some black.

Meaning what? I don’t know,

Like I said, I see nothing, vision I lack.

Simplicity it certainly shows,

Again my view, probably wrong.

The picture showing no rows,

Time for guitar, must play a song.

Share an image of a wall that reveals something about a place, people, or you.


Some of you might remember these wavy walls I did do a post about them a long while back. These are some of a few left in one piece, others in Norfolk. No one really knows why they were built apart from strength.


Wavy Walls Lymington


If you wish to know more I can try and seek out my old post or do another one from my research.

Straight wall-walkway. Also in Lymington.

Two Things!!

Thursday 12th March 2015.



Another brief scoop for the WordPress community by the word famous newspaper ‘Daily Gerald’ More updates to follow so keep a watch out for articles to appear here.

Two Things.


As most of you might know, I wrote a post a little while ago updating you all about my latest story.

The Birth of a Wizard Prince.  Firstly my story is now at a point that I can actually say it will be completed very shortly. At most another week, I am at the climax of the story and in the process of writing the final event, ie: a battle and then the gathering of ones thoughts and how they move on. All this is clearly in my mind, just needing me to put it into words and then into the Word document and save it. It does sound simple but for me it is harder done than said.There are a couple of things I need to think about to make the story ending work. For example an incantation that must make sense to the story line is just one thing for me to think and work out.



The second thing is, and I believe it to be a good thing. While writing this current story I have included a secondary story line, a deceit a lie, the usual sort of thing. It was completely unintentional but it aided the main story and gave reason to the story line. While now I had this thought about using it to use as the back drop to another story. A follow on to the original story. Not  number 2 to my original just a follow on with several of the main characters included. Instead of calling The Birth of the Wizard Prince 2 (because he is now born) it would have to be something entirely new. As yet not decided on a title a few main titles come to the forefront but will decide later. One decision I have to make is that Camp Nanowrimo is drawing close and do I participate again or should I give it a miss and do the July one. My reason for missing it is that I feel a little break is needed and I could start a little editing. Not that it is important to me because the story will probably go no further than my computer and maybe my printer. Reason I say printer is because the characters are based off my family, brothers and sister and parents, same names but shortened. And I think my sister would be interested in reading. A good test subject to give me feedback.

Camp Nanowrimo is a little easier than the November Nanowrimo which requires one to write 50000 words,while Camp offers a lot less word count. One can nominate a lowly 10000 up 100000 and anything in between, I usually nominate 35000. Because of this it become less pressurized. One can link up with others by joining a cabin with eleven others of similar age, styles or topics of writing basically what ever you nominate, or you can let the organiser to nominate and it is then up to you all if you wish to talk to each other. I personally have had rather boring cabins.

Forest song

Below you will read and hopefully listen to the songs, but after a large amount of research I found several versions of the same song. However none sang the same lyric, all different to the ones shown below, and this does seem to be the trend of these songs. Some lyric has altered words but with the same meaning, some sing the verses in different orders and some have completely different words. Hope you enjoy regardless of the changes or differences.

Three Little Words

Sunday 25th January 2015.



To join in with this little challenge and for the rules then please click the link below, and see if you can blow your mind,,, Like I did. I am now a mindless person not knowing what day it is…  (I would have said fool but thought better of letting everyone know my problems),  Enjoy.

  My three words are — Suspicious – Books – Shaking. Taken from Prophecy by Peter James.

1. He was becoming suspicious of the information he was given as he was shaking all the leaves of the books looking for the document.

2. She plonked them onto the desk, she began shaking she had never done this before, the librarian was very very suspicious, she just knew that the librarian was going to fine her for bringing the books back late.

3. His computer kept flashing up ‘suspicious file warning’, this time he started shaking with worry because he knew he would have to dig out his instruction books.

To Finish or to Continue!

Tuesday 20th January 2015

To Finish or to Continue. Another trivial piece.


Yesterday I commented on a blog, no ordinary blog, but Jo’s blog of –  a fabulous blog by the way and if you don’t know of it or her I suggest you pop over and have a look. Sorry, I go astray I am not really trying to publicize another blog, by the way she doesn’t really need me praising her anyway. But it was her reply that inspired this trivial piece.


Since Christmas I have been dealing with personal stuff, as I said on Jo’s post, but also been trying to finish a story. The story I refer to is the one I did for last November’s ‘NANOWRIMO’ Winner November 2014 Cert and many of you might know I passed the 50000 words to complete the task, for the fourth time. {Brag, brag blowing my own trumpet again} well it is great to boast about something once in a while, innit? especially if we are very proud of what we have done. Don’t we? I first did ‘Nano’ in 2011 and the story I did for this is still unfinished, I actually started it when I was a teenager, way before computers, it was all handwritten and after so many years it became very hard to decipher with all my notes on my pages. However the story went well, I wrote well over 65,000 words, and  completed the task. I did continue for a while after Nano’, but it is still a long way off from finishing. One day, one day.

The current story I am working on has been progressing well although slowly and I must admit the story I like very much. Its characters are all named after my brothers and sister and other characters are named after their friends and my friends, all starting from my teenage years and upwards. All names slightly altered. But I do have a problem, a nice problem but a problem all the same. Back in November I had thought I would finish it, I was after all doing a continuation and my total word count had reached over 80,000 and I could see the end. However the more I wrote the more ideas came into my mind and I kept adding more to it. More characters being brought in, more lines, more evil and long plan battle ideas, I do not know if this adds to the story in a good way or bad but it is my imagination. Anyway I am nearing to finishing and then I get the problem, what do I do after? 

Like my two other completed stories – My Dream 2012(love story) and The Parchment 2013(fantasy adventure) they remain on my hard drive.The Knight of the Oak 2011(subtitle King of the Wood after a poem of mine) my original attempt still to be finished, my characters are still waiting for me in the village of the dead. I think my stories are good, the story lines are original and mostly based around the New Forest, my only feeling is that the writing itself is not that good. I read many blogs and the standard of writing is very high, while mine I think is not to the standard required. Even after editing.

So my bottom line is to finish it and then continue?
