This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

15 words or less

Dodges prompt for todat, with the cue word 'Stress'


There are rules associated with the award which are...
1) Link back to the person who gave you the award... (done)
2) Tell 7 things about yourself... (err)                        
3) Award 15 recently discovered bloggers (tricky!)  

Okay.  7 things about me:

  1. I have an I.Q. of 157 acording to Mensa.
  2. I get on better with cats than with people.
  3. I spent 20 years working as a Train Announcer on the Railway.
  4. I suffer from mental illness.
  5. I am clumsey and accident prone.  I have only had minor injuries from accidents whan awake, the worst being a broken fingure when I was five.  While asleep I have sprained my neck on two occasions, broken a toe, sprained my shoulder, dislocated my thumb, concussed myself, torn two intercostal muscles, scratched my cornea and blacked my eye.  I am somewhat of a restless sleeper.
  6. The only animals I can't get on with are equines  the hate me, I dislike them.  This has been going on since I was bitten and kick by a Zebra at the zoo.
  7. I love singing and frequently sing without realising I am doing it.  My brain tends to sing the song it thinks suits the occasion, not always appropriately.  I was caught singing 'Busy doing nothing' at work by my manager, who was not amused.
In the spirit of this, I give the award back to JL.  Versatile she certainly is!
Three more are:
  1. Helena (http://helenasmemorybox.blogspot.com/)
  2. Jinksy (http://pens-poems.blogspot.com/) 
  3. Susie (http://countrysidepoet.blogspot.com/)
Thanks and well done to all three.


  1. Wow! Thanks Penny! Never have received an award, now I been gifted two in one day lol!

  2. Very clever Penny... six words are PERFECT !!
    Love getting to know more about you as well...WOW all those injuries when you are sleeping, I think I would strap myself in !
    I sing all the time too !! Your Busy doing nothing comment made my laugh so loud my cat jumped !! Thank you !

  3. Thanks for the thought, Penny, but Alias Jinksy is like Napple - doesn't 'do' awards, as they can eat into serious blogging time. Besides which, I frequently come out with random facts about me, just because I waffle a lot. Hehehe! I figure I don't need to add any more... :) But it's kind of you to give me one - I'll hang it round my neck on a ribbon, with all my others. LOL
