TELL ME A TALE IN 120 WORDS – Beliefs

Some of my beliefs

I was brought up a Catholic
Going to church and all the trick
Confess my sins and not critic
I grew up, I thought it’s toxic
Some of its beliefs I don’t get
Made up my mind and no regret

I love Him Indoors and the son
Concentrate on them and have fun
With rain, wind, snow and the sun
They’re the best presents I have won
I love my mother and siblings
When we’re all together we all sing

I believe in being a friend
Meet and shopping at the weekend
I want someone with no pretend
Loyalty and I can defend
We can laugh and cry together
Walk the hill or swim in azure*
(120 words)

Ten Things of Thankful

PHOTO PROMPT © Claire Sheldon

I’m thankful for all the little things around me
My paper and pens, paperclips, books and my cup of tea
That I could still work, meet my students and have fun together
Teaching them English and knowing good baker, author, banker
Him Indoors and the son and bride for all the love and support
We love our adobo, curries, spaghetti bolognaise and apple torte
My mother dearest who is nearly eighty and she still rocks
My sister in Canada, brother in the UK and older brother on his docks
We’ve got our health and we still keep cycling and swimming

HMS Victory

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. Just got back from the UK, where we visited HRH the son and his beautiful K in Southampton. They’re settling down alright in their new flat. We took the train to Portsmouth to see the historic Dockyard. We went to see HMS Victory, which served as Vice Admiral Lord Nelson’s flagship at the Battle of Trafalgar. We spent the morning going in and out of the ship. We had a great time!

Hello everyone from a cloudy Bavarian morning.

Oh well, we can’t have lovely weather everyday. Last week was brilliant, though. We were able to cycle around. Him Indoors is on holiday for a month, so he was out gardening most of the time. Sharing with you some of our new flowers.

Last night, we had dinner at the Greek’s – the place was full, people were outside and the food was really delicious!

By the way, I’ll have a break from blogging. We’re going on holiday for two weeks – in two countries – yay! I’ll tell you all about it when I get back. For now, have a lovely week everyone!

So, what made you smile this week?

Sunday in Ostpark

Hello everyone! We cycled to Ostpark yesterday and spent the morning by the lake, drinking beer, eating ice-cream, looking at the ducks and swans and just enjoying a lovely day.

This week we are celebrating the first wedding anniversary of HRH the son and his beautiful K. They are now in Barcelona and last night they watched the game at Camp Nou. FC Barcelona won, yay! Best wishes to the couple and many more years to share together. We love you.
