The Forest

NEAR where I live is the New Forest cutting a swathe across Hampshire and is divided by a notorious road known as the A31. The bigger towns are Ringwood and Lyndhurst which are small compared to somewhere like Bournemouth or Salisbury. Salisbury is not big considering it is the capital city for Wiltshire, which in itself is one of England’s gems.




Animals, cattle, ponies, donkeys, pigs, deer, all manner of wildlife thrive peacefully in the Forest but occasionally and all too often they are victims of idiots who drive too fast. Especially at night. People with some sense slow down and drive at a more leisurely pace to enjoy the views which are beautiful and ever-changing throughout the seasons.

Petitions fall by the wayside to lower the speed limit to below 40 MPH or 64K. So far it has remained the same. Until the change is made to bring the speed limit down to a slower pace, more animals will die or be horribly injured and needing to be put down.

Don’t be an idiot and create a statistic by driving too fast, enjoy the view. Even at night a glimpse of deer is still a wonder to behold as they stray across the roadways.

Be careful and drive carefully.

Do I work?

Yes…. And the short job description is:- Marketing assistant for a limited company in the UK. Prudence means my work life stays well away from here. Hurrah!

This blog is for mindless and sometimes dull entertainment, blowing off steam, having a laugh and such and such.

As one would expect I am closing in on retiring but the date for that moves further forwards in time the older I get. I, for one, like my work as it is for me a small business and keeps me sane. Enough enough.

So… the question is. Do you want to read my stuff? If so follow me, I may even make you laugh out loud one day and that is the real sense of achievement.

I have stuff online elsewhere and the link is here…

This one has my first full length novel on it for you to read at your own leisure plus other stuff from archives and ages ago. One day I may combine the two into one which is sensible what?




What? More rain…?

YOU look out the window with a list of jobs to do outside and then the question arises… “What? More rain…?” With that you shrug your shoulders and abandon all hope.

Life provides obstacles to test out our resolve and sometimes your inner self enables you to pluck up courage because without fixing the thing needing fixed, a worst case scenario could unfold.

An example. The dustbin is on it’s side and rubbish is strewed all over the place. Your nice neighbours will chide you behind you back, so out you must go. Mission accomplished and a sense of pride beckons you on to more wet getting as you find other things needing doing, straightening a stick holding up one of the fine specimens of Digitalis or similar and within minutes all manner of stuff is put right. “Well done.” You self aggrandize. “Well done!”

The tests we are set with build us into people with resolve, so spare a thought for the hero’s of the hour. One day you may need one.


Oh well…

“We have a propensity to start loads of things and they end up in a mental cupboard of unfinished stuff.”

Here you go a new post. All the old rubbish has been deleted so here we go again. Oh well…
