We are all booked in and ready to roll
or should I say ready to bowl
The balls have been picked
but scores not easy to predict
My fingers may get stuck in the holes
and fling my body way out of control
I might end up face to face with a skittle
go arse over head - yeah you may laugh just a little
Or maybe I'll score my first strike
knock everything down oh that's what I'd like
my competitive streak let loose
a winner just ready to produce
More like a few narrow misses and split pins
I'm wondering if I'd bowl better after a few gins
No it may make me stagger
and talk like Mick Jagger
But whatever the results it's just fun
congrats to the one who has won
The pins can now rest
for we gave it our best
I think I'd quite like to bowl again.
Happy 18th Birthday Ricky!

I'd like to be a baker on Bake Off
I'd like a stopper I could really show off
My cake it would be fine
with lemon and a hint of lime
Must be great to be a baker on Bake Off
My pastry would probably not bake
I'd pipe icing that would turn into a lake
No Hollywood handshake for you
just a quizzical look from our Pru
I better not even think about going on Bake Off
I really wouldn't know where to start
to bake a prize winning tart
My ingredients would go everywhere
flour and sugar mixed in with my hair
I've a feeling I may not be on Bake Off
I don't know if I'd like the technical bit
with vague instructions that don't really fit
I'd get in a muddle
and need a great big cuddle
I'll leave the Bake Off for now
I admire their patience and desire
as they rush around and perspire
A passion with a glimmer
oh who will be the winner
of The Great British Bake Off 2017
Good luck bakers!!
Thanks for reading today
Come back tomorrow for Free From Friday
Oh my ageing bladder was the inspiration for a verse this week. As I've got older I seem to spend more time on the toilet, I suppose that's quite normal and approaching the menopause too. I'm not complaining, ageing is a privilege denied by some people at my age so I am thankful for the body I have, even with it's weak leaky bits and stretch marks too.
So here goes, a poem about my bladder.....enjoy!!
Why do I always want the loo?
I'm permanently on the throne it's untrue
My bladder's a tad bit shady
and I have shares in Tena Lady
Not kidding I'm forever on the loo
It's always a bit of a trick
to find somewhere blooming well quick
I'm crossing my legs
Give me a toilet my body it begs
I'm desperately needing the loo
Is it childbirth that did this to me?
or middle age that makes me want to pee
Is it too much drinking?
Or is my bladder just shrinking?
Who knows? I just always need the loo
It's hard for a girl to take a quick leak
there's dignity required and a technique
To squat somewhere rough
from waist down in the buff
Oh no I prefer a proper loo
I may shock a farmer
or come face to face with a Llama
With knickers pulled down
the wildlife would frown
No I need to be going to a loo
Who knew one could write a poem about wee
toilet humour is always the key
It's really quite funny
having a bladder that is runny
Goodbye now I'm off to the loo
I know!! probably too much information but it does make me giggle sometimes not too much obviously as I need to prevent any accidents. If I go out for a walk with my son and I even mention that I've got to visit the toilet he will throw his arms up and say ' yeah I know you've got to go to the loo' as if in despair!! When you've got to go, you've got to go I reply.
Thank you for reading today and please come back tomorrow for Free from Friday (promise to leave the toilet humour behind).
Take care for now........
I just couldn't decide what to have to eat yesterday, I wasn't in the mood to cook and ended up in the end having a bowl of bananas and custard because that's all that I fancied.
I thought I would use my lack of appetite as inspiration for my verse today.....
I don't know what to have for my tea
my appetite seems to have left me
My stomach it rumbles
but my brain it stumbles
on what I should have for my tea
It's not that I haven't been shopping
my cupboards are positively popping
I'm not being lazy
just feel a bit hazy
deciding what I should have for my tea
I've already cooked for the kids
but for me something forbids
Ok I'm watching my weight
and some foods I have to eliminate
but there must be something to have for my tea
I'll snack a bit and see how I go
to test if my hunger will grow
I'm not going to get flappy
as Slimming World will be happy
that no syns were used with my tea
Nope nothing tickles my fancy
a takeaway would be way too chancy
It would be very quick
but I'd be stuffed and feel a bit sick
no not having that for my tea
Maybe I am a bit tired
with nothing really to be desired
I'm off to see what I can do
get off my arse, try something new
then.....I'll have something for my tea
Thank you for reading, I'll be back tomorrow for Free from Friday.
A Verse for Thursday....
