need some healing thoughts for Billy tonight,he is in Colchester Hospital with a fever, chest infection due to being neutropenic ( sorry if spelling is wrong) three weeks since his chemo and we were feeling quite positive.But he came home this afternoon feeling really umwell.
We also look after my mother who is 89 and has dementia, she came to live with us when my father died eighteen months ago,so I had to leave her with a neighbour while I drove Billy to the hospital.
Spent five hours at the hospital and have just got home,need to clone myself so I can be in both places at once!!
rant over,so glad the concert went well at The House Nigel, will look forward to seeing you on the Beeb.
love to all

Hope your Birthday was a Happy and contented day Nigel,
It has taken me a week to get over the shock of the Birthday party for Bunny our Grandaughter!Goodness my respect for teachers has gone up 100%!!Do all little boys just "run"? Maybe the disco was the wrong move to start the afternoon, also the balloons loose on the floor, well it started everything with a bang!!As for the tea, what a mixture , everything on one plate savoury,cupcakes, sausages,chiocolate! Oh well I guess it all goes down the same way.
Magic Marvo lived up to his name, Magic and marvolous, he had control of the children from the start, Bunny made a wonderful assistant and was very shocked that she has magic "blow" and could mend the rope that was cut in half just by closing her eyes and blowing on it.
Maybe giving the boys balloon swords was a mistake but the party was over by then and Magic Marvo probably thought the mothers would go home and not say yes to the millionth cup of tea that i was making for the helpers!!
A good time was had by all the children, but mummy and I needed a Gin and Tonic before bedtime!Happoy days
Wendy xx

Thanks, Rum & Sandra. The spelling of 'Olde Pharte' is particularly appropriate when you take into account the historical side of my early days in Folk Music. And 'One-off Admirable Personalities'...well, I feel I hardly deserve such grandeur, but will, nevertheless, accept it most graciously.
       Ann & I are off out this evening to sample the delights of a very good, local, Chinese Restaurant. Got to keep my eye on the carbs & added sugar, but I'm not expecting that to spoil my evening one jot!

Such good news......I hate to bring a downer but I wonder if you all might hold a thought for another Mudcatter that many of you know. Mrrzy has been around the 'Cat for a long time, a Village regular. Some of you maight be aware that she lost her Mom recently, a holocaust survivor. What you might not know is that Mrrzy lost her father in the Lebanon embassy bombing in 1979.

On top of her Mom's death we now have the middle east exploding with the deaths of embassy personnel. Its hard to go through the anniversay of her Dad's death for her I know but to have this happening has got to bring back unwanted memories.

Hold a good thought for her. I sent her a note and you may or may not wish to do the same. She hasn't posted since the 8th.

Many thanks all you good people!

The stress of it all for the mummy and daddy!

Jane's birthday could not have been a happier day. The sun shone; we DID get to eat & drink alfresco. Cakes were cut, candles were blown out, brief speeches of thanks attempted, slightly hampered by tears. Fortunately, she has a large garden, because the number of people dropping by to wish her well must have topped sixty at least. A truly wonderful day for so many reasons. I would have loved for all of you to have been there.
                      Thank you for your Good Wishes,

The one person with whom I could've collaborated, writing songs, died from a brain tumour eight years ago.Almost certainly, one of the most talented & successful composers of film & TV Music of whom you've never heard. His name was Ian Hughes. I played guitar for him on many recording sessions, from simple demos for aspiring 'stars' to full-blown orchestral scores destined for the silver screen or TV. We did write one song together (I'm sure I've mentioned this in an earlier post). It was for the Eurovision Song Contest, but didn't make the cut. I still have our original, 'work in progress' cassette, but nothing on which to play it!
      Pete, it surprises me too! But I think I probably work better when I keep Poetry & Instrumental Music as separate entities. In truth, they both satisfy different needs within me.
      Maeve, you're so right. Handing over my 'poem-child' to the safe keeping of a, another would be something like taking a young son or daughter to their first day at school & letting them go in at the gates.
      It's beautifully warm & sunny here in London & the forecast is set fair for Sunday too, which is the best possible news because it's Jane's Birthday. It will be lovely if we can eat, drink & mingle, 'alfresco'.
      So good to read your comments...so good to feel you near.
      Wishing you all a sunny weekend too,
      With Love,
                     Nigel & Ann.

It's good to read your update, Nigel. Worlds of change for you, yes indeed!

As for "Lyrics & Poems, whilst sharing many similarities, are not the same thing at all"; I agree, yet I also suspect that some of your poems might well be "convertible" to excellent lyrics in the hands of a trusted fellow songwriter. Worth some thought, perhaps. It can be daunting to hand off your poem-child (over which you've lovingly labored/laboured.) It's also a delight when you find someone with whom you can collaborate to make a song.

Sail on!

I'm so pleased that my poem, 'Talk', struck a chord (no pun intended!) I've written short poems ever since I learned how to write. Usually just for Family, something to put inside a birthday or anniversary card, certainly not for public consumption. As an adult, I've discovered that poetry helps me express some of my deeper thoughts & feelings in ways that prose just can't match. Finding the courage to share some of the poems publicly was something I agonised over for months! I don't consider myself to be a 'Poet', I just enjoy (and sometimes need to), write poetry. What puzzles me is that I can't write a decent song lyric to save my life! What I have learned is that Lyrics & Poems, whilst sharing many similarities, are not the same thing at all. Thank you all for your generous praise. That you liked 'Talk' or it moved you, or you wanted to pass it on, leaves me feeling that writing it was time well-spent.
       Wendy, very glad to hear that Billy's treatment is progressing well. Our 'cuppa date' on 30th is still looking good from our end.
       Jane has had some of her drugs' treatment stopped, it being deemed unnecessary any more...that always feels like progress has been made. She remains on a closely monitored program, but the gaps between the tests & scans are gradually being extended...another sign of progress. In January of this year, we were practically planning her funeral. So much has changed in eight months.
      Hoist the Mainsail!
                                  With Love,

that is so beautiful, wonderful words.How amazing to have been there, I wondered if I could get last minute tickets ,they are releasing them every morning. Billy and I have been watching every evening and think these games have been more meaningful than the Olympics! Truly inspirational people!

Billy had treatment three this week, halfway there!So far a little weary but apart from that no adverse effects! I trust Jane is still feeling well and that you and Ann are doing well! That cup of tea is on its way, I will pm you about the dates you gave me,(maybe the 30th?) just seeing how Billy gets on this week!

Managers whose jobs change weekly, sometimes leaving not so meekly.
Don't talk to me of bulging egos, where the tax goes, who the hell knows.
Referees who're not impartial, should there be a new 'field marshall'?
Don't talk to me of lifestyle choices, angry voices, flash Rolls-Royces.
Players rolling on the ground, 'miraculously', no injury's found.

Sacrificing loved ones, home life, husband, girl-friend, partner, new wife.
Talk to me of body defects, illness infects, teams that expect
Everyone to pull their weight for Country, Family & Mate.
Talk to me of limbless swimmers, palsied winners, young beginners.
Athletes who've inspired a Nation, disregarding birth's creation.
Talk to me of Super Human, super Man & super Woman
Talk to me, your eyes a'glisten,

Everyone to pull their weight for Country, Family & Mate.
Talk to me of limbless swimmers, palsied winners, young beginners.
Athletes who’ve inspired a Nation, disregarding birth’s creation.
Talk to me of Super Human, super Man & super Woman
Talk to me, your eyes a’glisten,
Eventually the World will listen.

we been in devon for a week at a picture post card cottage that was'nt what it was cracked up to be, and in fact should have had a warning that it is unsafe for kids and disabled.so if anyone is tempted to book bear shola at upper ottery be warned.it is in a lovely part of the country however and we had a good time out and about.
at a petrol stn almost home i broke my ignition key.thankfully car still started and yesterday i went to vauxhall garage who were unable to fix it without the code[and would have charged a lot and took days if they did]but did suggest the locksmith across the road.sure enough he patiently extracted the end of the key and furnished me with a new one for £25.smiles and relief here too!
blessings everyone   pete.

Smiles indeed.

For the record and for those it may aid in future:

I recently took two "talking watches" which I purchased from CNIB to a master watch and jeweller's shop. After a LOT of messing around by THREE people, including "the master" who was called to the shop by cell phone in this emergency, it was too much. I left but gave my phone number at leaving as they were "researching." I recorded the telephone message... "...your watches have only one battery each and if the watch isn't working properly it cannot be fixed and must be replaced."

Now, anyone with even a small brian would... nevermind... I went to another shop and they replaced both batteries in each watch in ten minutes and charged me about what would have been the same. I have two talking watches and three spare "in a pinch" batteries... and the address of a good watch guy.

So, talking watches got two batteries, no matter what someone who wants to sell you a watch says. >;-)
