Drunken Ramblings

'I think about you all the time',
means nothing after a bottle of wine.
'I can't get you out of my head',
perfect, if only you said it sober instead.
I know your heart hurts, you feel torn,
but that leaves me wondering, am I simply the thorn.
So, please, tell me when sober you are
and I'll go the distance, my love will go far.
Do reassure me that this trip will be shared,
that your words are real and that you actually care.
But do it I beg when sober instead.
I'm not asking for promises or even for changes,
just a little respect between our exchanges.
My heart feels as yours it's lost and unsure,
and I need your truths to reassure.

Sung beneath my stars

…so it’s 6:00am, vodka knows your name and in the devils hour guilt whispers back your shame and so it is you plead, strumming fingers till they bleed, don’t you worry bout the distance
you sing between the tears. And fragments they have shattered yet you’re singing that I matter. Vodka rushes down and words begin to slur, the line that we had drawn has once again become so blurred. So you sing, songs of old and new, on the guitar that you do play you whispered on my sunrise, that our future is okay…and hey there Delilah you tell me in the dark… Hey there Delilah, you sung beneath my stars.

Just rambling.

There is nothing I love more in life than listening to children communicating in this odd and exciting world. My daughter has her besty round today and so far they have had me in stitches….

Besty…is blind.

My monkey is autistic and has SPD and hates clothes and heat…(ages 8+9)

Me: Where are your clothes?

Monkey: I took them off. I’m hot.

Me: You have to keep clothes on when you have people round.

Monkey: Mum shes blind, that’s why shes my best friend, I don’t have to wear clothes round her!!!!!

Ha ha ha I cannot argue with this!


Monkey:Mum, can me, besty, daddy and grandad go park? Actually not Grandad he walks too slow.

Me: Park is closed for cleaning today.

Besty: The one by the school is open that one is always open.

Me: they closed that one for cleaning.

Besty: Monkey, I think your mum tells lies!!!

Monkey: My mum doesn’t tell lies…

Walks away explaining that I don’t tell lies but I sometimes do tricks on her, and says, I might be tricking them that the park is closed. lol


This one made me giggle alot….

Besty: Karen, what are you doing, I can hear you singing….

Me: Taking a break sweety, if you need anything go to…hubby.

Besty: A break!! You’re so lucky to have a break I never get a break!!!

Me: Yeah cos your days are so busy what with all that playing lol

Besty: I have to do home work as well you know!!!


HA HA HA HA HA….God I wish I only had to worry about homework, I miss those days lol


Oh I love these girls.
