- Photo by Pam Robinson
- Given three short poetry readings
- Hosted my firstborn child, Rarity Boy
- Made the best fairy cakes I’ve ever baked
- Made the worst fairy cakes I’ve ever baked
- Baked! Who’d have thunk it?
- Chatted to the Mayor
- Put a hole in my knee (and my favourite black leggings)
- Proofread and/or critiqued at least five documents of one sort or another
- Missed the Supermoon, as expected – Stockport doesn’t do celestial events, being under one continuous cloud blanket since I moved here in 1996
- Made a roast dinner in a state of mild hysteria
- Attended two meetings
- Been unable to buy train tickets on a website because it’s just too hard!
- Allowed my last born child to patronise me because he knows how to buy train tickets off the internet
- Felt immense guilt that I haven’t replied to your comments or returned your visits
- Not been paid for anything on this list
- Wished I had a penny for every moment of guilt felt because then I could pay someone to reply to your comments and return your visits
- Found the first photo of me I’ve actually liked since 2003 (banner photo notwithstanding, because that’s of the Hub and I, who I love soooooo much)
- Considered replacing the Hub, who broke my Tree of War mug, even though he offered to give me his as a replacement; maybe I’ll replace him with his mug…or just bean him with it
- Put off going in the shower by writing this when I should be getting ready to go out to another meeting
I apologise for the smell
Happy birthday to the Hub!
Such a cheerful man. You can see why I’ve stayed married to him for so long, can’t you?
A honeymoon pic. He was twenty.
A barrel of laughs.
A self-portrait he made which freaked the heck out of me.
When a man looks that good, here’s the inevitable result…
I subscribe to NASA’s emails and I received one the other day that I’d like to share. Tomorrow, they want everyone to take a selfie.
Are you up for it? If you don’t do Twitter, Facebook, etc., post it to your blog then leave a link here in the comments and I’ll come check you out.
Here’s their blurb:
NASA invites you — and everyone else on the planet — to take part in a worldwide celebration of Earth Day this year with the agency’s #GlobalSelfie event.
The year 2014 is a big one for NASA Earth science. Five NASA missions designed to gather critical data about our home planet are launching to space this year. NASA is marking this big year for Earth science with a campaign called Earth Right Now, and as part of this campaign the agency is asking for your help this Earth Day, April 22.
While NASA satellites constantly look at Earth from space, on Earth Day we’re asking you to step outside and take a picture of yourself wherever you are on Earth. Then post it to social media using the hashtag #GlobalSelfie.

This was me last Friday morning:
Me as Captain Caveman:
This was me on Friday afternoon:
What do you think?
I went to my church Christmas Fair on Saturday and chatted to a friend who was on face painting duty.
Want your face painted? she joked.
No thanks, I laughed.
Then I remembered my 101/1001 task to say yes to new experiences…and here is the result:
(I’m also doing my bit for Movember)
And yes, shocking as it is, I have lived fifty years without ever having my face painted. How about you?
Checking my Daily Prompt folder, I discovered I have 224 prompts to answer. I thought I’d better make a start.
The Hub and I celebrated his 21st birthday in our second home. We had been married four months and still had our figures:
My love for the Hub was fleeting. It lasted as long as the time it took to develop this photograph:
WPC: The World Through My Eyes
I see the world through eyes that are still this young:
We have always been companionable, so long as I tell him what to do and he does it:
In return, I have to wear a green headdress at all times.
Here’s a foreshadowing of our relationship:
WPC: An Unusual Point Of View
Here’s an unusual point of view – the Hub is telling me what to do:
Don’t worry: it was only which section of the paper I could have. Natural order was soon restored:
