If you could afford it, would you take a trip on a civilian flight into space?
The way we have been doing the school run is that my partner (I really should give him a better nickname) will either do the drop off or the collection, depending on what he is working.
There have been the odd few days like tomorrow, when his work start him at 9am and finish at 3.30pm
Meaning he can do neither, we have had the conversation about just leaving monkey at school till four and hoping he is ok, but that is frowned upon, as is dumping the poor lad in the playground at 8.15 in the morning.
This means, I have to do it, which results in nights like this when I just stare at the clock ticking down, till I fall asleep with a knot in my stomach.
As I have explained in a previous post the actual doing doesn’t seem to be a problem, but the come…

I’m on a boat! Yes, mydangblog is travelling. I’ve been superbusy this week getting work stuff done and then getting packed up to go, so here’s what I have for you. You know I write this blog, and you might know that I’m a published novelist, but I also write short stories.

I’ll be back next week with tales of my adventures but for now…

I jump on the pumpkin spice train every fall. That’s lattes, breads, doughnuts- anything pumpkin spiced I’ll eat it-without shame.
I rejoice when the temperature drops below 60 degrees and I can dive into my scarf basket. I live for cooler weather so I can play winter dress-up in coats, hats, scarfs and gloves- and then complain it’s too cold!

The dog and cat are enjoying the fall pleasures as well.

What do you think people will say about you at your funeral?
It used to be simple
You were my muse

Telling me how you loved me
Does love ever last?
Can it really be without ending too complicated?
I used many consonants trying to keep you near
But the two vowels I remember most are
Over and end.
Where did 2018 go?
