Becky loved flying. she was a good air hostess.

a man sitting in the front row shouted to her as she served the food.

Help, he said.

Oh are you ok? she asked.

what’s wrong

He chuckled. nothing, he said.

I just wanted to see how quickly you’d respond to my call.

Becky smiled sweetly.

I hope I esceeded your expectations she said.

Oh yes, dear…said the man. You sure did.




Sharing a post from cyranny on the wordpress block editor

I am sharing the following post from cyranny, if you want the classic wordpress editor to stay, speak up, let your voice be heard, read cyrannys post, and share it, and lets all stand together, and have our voices heard, so that maybe, just maybe wordpress will agree to keep their classic editor, and not make us all move to their new block editor, which, i might add is totally inaccessible for me as a blind blogger.

Your 3 words today are:





Sarah did her best to get rid of the bugs that were in her kitchen. A nest of ants. She was so freaked out by ants. Afraid that they’d fly at her, or bite her.

Some idiot had left the sugar bowl open, and sugar had spilled all over the kitchen table.

Ants loved sugar, and had immediately come in when they smelled it.

Sarah hoped she could get rid of them.

She decided it was time to go to the store and get something to spray them with. All of the home made remedies she’d used hadnt worked.




Sue vincent is the host of writephoto, and this week she has given us a fabulous prompt.


For visually challenged writers, the image shows a rather oriental red bridge over a  pool covered with waterlilies and surrounded by trees.



as I stand by the red bridge

looking at the misty pool below

I feel so peaceful

water lillies

dance in the breeze

waving in the sunlight

the red bridge

so old

so beautiful

so inviting

its colors

dazzling my soul

i stand there

breathing in the scent

of flowers

bathing in the sunlight

peace and harmony

surrounding me


Thursday inspiration

Paula from light motifs has given us another wonderful thursday inspiration prompt, and I thought I’d participate in it this week so here goes.



Welcome to Thursday Inspiration! This is my weekly prompt post and hopefully it will inspire you to write something creative, perhaps a poem or a piece of flash fiction. If you’d like to share your writing with the community, please indulge me and tag your post with #p0eticlicense and/or #lightm0tifs, and of course link back if you wish. I will try to visit everyone who participates.

This week’s theme is sunset and the picture is below.

sunrise, sunset

I love them both

Only wish

I could see them each morning

and evening

standing watching the sunrise

its a beautiful thing

glorious, liberating

and the evening sunset

always so mezmorising

my day isnt complete

unless i get to see one

or both of them


Night terrors!

A weight
Lies heavy
On my chest
As I lie here
Wide awake
So scared
Bad dreams
Leave me feeling
So much fear
The intensity
Threatens to overtake me
I rise from my bed
Walk to the kitchen
and make a coffee
And decide to stay up
As I am wide awake now anyway
Hopeful the fear
Will leave me soon
I pat nitro
My sweet boy
Who knows I need him
So much right now
Sip on the coffee
And breathe deeply
Its a new day

A few odds and ends

So my mom bought an air purifier at the weekend. She got it on Friday. She used it on both Friday night and Saturday night, and she said she can already feel the benefit of it. It cost her 160 euro. I wasnt sure at first about it but it seems to work for her so thats good. Anything that will help her to breathe better, I’m all for.

I’m a bit miffed tonight because my ginger souflet body lotion is all gone. It was a scent I loved. And the store that sells it is no longer selling it, and even if they were, its not opened now, and it probably isnt going to open again once the coronavirus is over.

I have other body lotions, but my other favourite one, which is rose scented and makes me think of our therapist, is almost gone as well.

Speaking of Eileen, I just sent her a text, because I hadnt gotten the link to our zoom meeting for tomorrow. She has already texted me back. She said I am keeping her on her toes. She just sent the link to me a couple minutes ago.

I am so looking forward to therapy tomorrow. We have just been so off this week. It feels awful. So I will be glad of the session and the chance to talk.

Well gonna go read, so catch yall later!
