Don, un mio de la poésie pouor lé preunmyi du septembre; un haiku

Nou-s-êtampe les pommes.
Les longs cauds jours sont pâssés.
Un vêpre mort dans l'tchué.

L'auteur, ch'est probabliément Mess. Jennings.
À bi et à la préchaine, bouonnes gens!

Tonight, at 7pm, we learn who is to be the 12th
'madman with a box'.
(Tumblr will be in Meltdown!)
Do I have strong views on who it should be?
Life-long Whovian here, what do you think?

~~ it's cold & raining again
~~ you crave, and make, soup instead of salad for lunch
~~ you're buying cute christmas fabrics (b/c the UK shops can only order once, and when it's gone...)
~~ even worse selection of tv b/c: wimbledon
~~ did I mention the rain?
~~ you freeze your (censored!) off b/c, hey, is summer, & you're determined to wear your pretty linen skirts/dresses, and tana lawn skirts. (And then compensate with a winter woolie)

Must be july in the UK.

I *swear* this group is re-issue! I have good eye for pattern, and recognise the paisley and the small birds. *wanties*

A bright star

Astronomer, broadcaster and author, Sir Patrick Moore finally has access to All the Answers. I, and M specially, are thankfully to Source that we experienced his enthusiasm, albeit through the tv programmes.

Good night, Sir. Enjoy your next adventure.
À bi!

I've been asked to make a baby quilt. Not really a prob, despite all the other projects I should be working on. The lady who asked (work colleague of M, as in, she works in same building, he knows her slightly) had seen another one I made and how the infant loves it, and wants one for her unborn. My problem is that she wants it 'more girly', and I don't know what that means. Guess we should meet up so she can 'splain it to me.

Rare cinema visit earlier to watch 'Hotel Transylvania'. Funny! Even so, I laughed harder at the 2 trailers with the minions. Po-tay-toe! lol

Bring me home in a blinding dream
Through the secrets that I have seen
Wash the sorrow from off my skin
And show me how to be whole again
