Savvy Diary – The Torture

Just read a poem that arrived in my inbox, by Brandon Som. I struggled to follow many of the lines, as some were in languages other than English and, much to my shame, I am not even bilingual, let alone multilingual! Nonetheless, the following two lines stuck! Perhaps in the same way that a saw,…

55: Finiarted

Finished. Finished the day job. Started my life as me. Finiarted.   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, July 2019   Image depicting my reaction a few moments ago, when Hubby returned from the supermarket minus the celebratory bottle of fizz I sent him out for, by Domenic Hoffmann from Pixabay

36: Love Is

What is love, if not that feeling of elation experienced is one heeds the ‘stop’ sign for a moment (or lots of moments) and notices … … notices, the contrasting colours in the land where we stand?   The flowers in our hedgerows: The leaves at our feet: The homes of our little folks: And…

35: Another Work Day

Blah, blah, blah! Jay? Be with you in a couple of seconds! Blah, blah, blah! But, but, but! Jay, Jay, Jay! Be with you … But, but, but …. On and on the voices drone and pester. (Just how much longer can I take?) One moment! But, blah, blah, blah! AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGHHHHHH! But, Jay? But, but, blah,…

31: Chef

It’s chucking it down with the Gods’ urine this morning. Not a day for the usual therapeutic-kerbside photography! What now? Should I work on my chart hit, or is that too yesterday? Should I plan ahead for the day job, or is that too tomorrow?* Today? Today, thanks to an early-morning interaction with the site…

28: Death

  Can’t believe it! Kept in by the wind and rain, I just picked up a random book from a random shelf in my kitchen. Yes, there are books galore in every room in my house, and it is a rare moment in which I regret the purchase of any of them. Except today! The…

26: Knackered

Knackered. Far too knackered to even write this post. So I’m giving up!   Copyright owned by Jay Cool, June 2019   Image by Julie Louis from Pixabay   P.S. Must have been knackered. Wrote the above three sentences yesterday. Today, on my return from another day on the slog, I looked for this post…

25: Twaddle

Sun. Flowers. Sketching. Writing. Happiness. Just about sums up the last week! All was grand, until … … today! After yesterday’s prevarication, I’m surprised to find myself awake an hour before I need to be. Going back to work isn’t going to be so dreadful after all! But, there’s no point getting up before I…

24: Hedgerows

So where did I leave you last time? Oh, yes – I was about to do my preparation for going back to The Day Job tomorrow. And, am I? Well, yes I am doing some prep, but – it’s not for my employer! And, is that a bad thing? No! Daylight’s calling and I’m slipping…
