  • Here I am in my house in Enniskillen with my two grandchildren, who have just come home from school.
    They threw off their shoes and socks and asked to see Lord of the Rings on DVD. (Soon their mother will come home from working as a LabTechnician in the local Secondary school.

    I have spent the morning writing two new poems to put on LinkedIn Poetry Forum where I am a regular contributor and checking to see how my competition entry on StoriesSpace is doing.
    I made spinach soup, with humus and 'baba ganush' for lunch.
    And tonight I am making risotto. I have a vegan, non wheat diet.
    I am still tired from a late writers group meeting at Charlies Bar thirty minutes walk from my house. We are pooling our stories to publish an anthology.
    I have also been reading all the posts my Cowbird friends have submitted today.
