I have just deleted what I started writing here… it was sombre and I think I would prefer to post something more amusing and keep my sad news to myself…. so from a little gem of a book called The Little Book of Complete Bollocks, the purpose of which is to do a hatchet job on today’s therapy culture, let me share some gems with you…. oh yes… it is English, typically sarcastic English humour!

These gems really made me laugh:

  • Dysfunctional: A dysfunctional family is not a family that fails to function; a dysfunctonal family is a family that fails to function for you … make your family function for you by asking family members to rub essential oils into your thighs. If anyone refuses, ask them why they feel threatened by your thighs

  • Respecting Your Feet: Your feet deserve more love than they get. Make your feet feel loved and needed by soaking them in a mixture of warm aloe vera juice, jojoba cream, liquidised artichoke hearts and tea tree oil. Afterwards, make a delicious and nourishing soup with it and invite your friends round to share this affirmation of your uniqueness

  • Being You: It’s okay to be you. It’s not okay to be somebody else. Spare a thought for all those people who are somebody else. It must be just awful for them!

  • Important: Feelings of unimportance are often caused by a lack of importance. Banish your feelings of unimportance by becoming President of the United States… (sorry couldn’t resist it)

I have to confess I am very excited about my new blog London~Love~Verse. If you have a penchant for poetry I would welcome your views and criticism, but it is purely my poetry… no pictures there I’m afraid, no mrsbg no Robert E Howard’s powerful poetry… I shall keep that and pics for London~Love just more of my inane ramblings in verse form. Brian I am playing with a poem for you and your penchant ;>)



I wish you all a wonderful weekend, whether you are at home or away and Chag Sameach and Shabbat Shalom to my fellow B’nai Yisroel


P.S. Have you noticed I’m showing off because it has only taken me almost a year to work out how to do this link thingy on a blog and nobody told me what to do… I actually worked it out for myself. Now what I would like to know is how to put on my profile all my blogs like some people do…. hmmm


the loves of my life

at the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet ~~~ plato

thank you…

... to everyone whose pictures and videos I have borrowed; if anyone would like theirs to be removed, please tell me and I shall be happy to do so

all words here are mine ~ I’ll tell you when they’re not!

from long ago

in case I forget what day of the week it is
