Ideas…¬†

I have an idea for a book club for as many people as we’d like, would anyone be interested?
My thoughts would be that at the start of every fortnight/month we pick a book and everyone involved try to read it in the set time and at the end have a Twitter chat or something similar through another platform to discuss our thoughts?
Let me know what you think and whether or not you’d be interested! Or if you know of something similar that you can point me towards, then please do!

Wait

So, it’s been a while since I shared any of my poetry with you all. This one, ‘Wait’ was written when I was 13 years old. It was published by Foyle Young Poets in Looking For Lyrics – The Song In My Heart and so isn’t my usual type of thing. Let me know in the comments below what you think! Feel free to share too ūüôā 

 

Sometimes at night I stay awake

To see if you will call.

But now for weeks, I haven’t slept,

No word from you at all.

I pass the place where we first met

You still don’t have a clue

Even though there is no word

I live and breathe for you.

 

Though the silence haunts me

I will wait and see

If in fact you truly love her

Or if you’ll fall for me.

We’ll wait for days to see

If this could be our fate

But I guess I’ll have to wait.

 

There can be times when I am mad

With your naivety

You sit and think of you and her

And I of you and me.

But through our laughs and crazy jokes

Along with all we do

It’s incredible you can’t see

I really do love you.

 

Though the silence haunts me

I will wait and see

If in fact you truly love her

Or if you’ll fall for me.

We’ll wait for days to see

If this could be our fate

But I guess I’ll have to wait.

Posted in Lifestyle, Sunday's Summary

Sporty Sunday

Hello one and all, once again it’s Sunday and I’ve actually been doing things this week! I’ve a few blog post ideas today so please be patient and I’ll be posting them throughout the day. Maybe I’ll be back to my normal blogging routine soon…

To start with, we have the usual Sunday Summary of the week. Monday, which was also Baron’s birthday, involved a trip into town and the start of Operation Rachel 18th Birthday. Dad and I had a visit from Granny B and my Aunt and we spent almost 2 hours trying to fix problems they had with their e-tickets for an upcoming trip to England. Somehow, ¬†my uncle had spelt the names wrong on the tickets and had forgotten to add luggage and special assistance that was required and so that took up the majority of our morning. When we finally finished that, Dad and I took a drive into Lisburn City Centre. I left him to do his own thing while I bought a candle for my cousin and a few bits and pieces for my bedroom.¬†I’m hoping when I get back from Glasgow to make my room more ‘me’ and a few other things I have in mind but more about that later. We then spent the rest of the day around the house, me revising and Dad cleaning and gardening. That night we got a phone call from a rather homesick Rachel. We’d been keeping up to date with the Habitat team in Romania through the blog the teachers had set up, which can be found¬†here¬†for anyone who’s interested, and so knew some of what they’d been doing but of course you can never be fully prepared for some of the poverty seen and so Rachel was quite upset. Finally, we watched Brief Encounters on ITV at 9pm. It was a great first episode and I really can’t recommend it enough! It’s light and different and definitely worth watching.

Tuesday brought about a morning for going through my summer holiday clothes and deciding what I was taking in case it needed washed. That took up the majority of my morning somehow and so in the afternoon I did some revision before ironing clothes and heading to a barbeque at my granny’s fold. It was a pleasant night and I had a few good chats with some of the other people living there. Overall, Tuesday was a dull day.

Wednesday, I headed to Kesh for a couple of nights at my cousin’s. With everything that’s been going on here recently, I was dying to escape the house and the people in it and so, as getting to Kesh is cheaper than Glasgow, I chose to visit my family. I got down to Omagh around lunchtime and spent a couple of hours shopping with my cousin before going on to her house in Kesh. We had lunch before organising her back room into a spare room, something she’d been trying to do for a while now but needed help to move the furniture. That night we got a chinese and chatted while watching Pretty Little Liars – I love it! I’ll have to watch it before Ibiza next week….

Thursday¬†morning, we went to Castle Archdale in Fermanagh to walk the dogs and get some fresh air. My uncle came down to see us and of course he and my cousin argued the whole way around so it wasn’t exactly fun. However we then went out for lunch and then onto his friend’s house where we chatted together for a while and actually managed to have everyone being pleasant for a while. That night, we watched more Pretty Little Liars and moved some more furniture around before attempting to have an early night.

On¬†Friday, I came home again and went to visit Granny H to help her with her new phone and some other technology problems she’s been having. We finished the night by watching tennis and having a barbeque in the garden.

Yesterday, we went to St George’s Market – an indoor market in Belfast City Centre. It was good fun to have a look around the stalls while listening to a traditional Irish band, but it was nothing compared to the markets you get abroad – another reason to be excited for our holiday! We did a bit of shopping around the city centre before having lunch out, and then came home where we watched yet more tennis.

 

Today is the final day of Wimbledon and so I’m about to go watch TV – hopefully see Andy Murray win! I’d better actually get going now as they’re about to start the game. Enjoy your Sunday and I’ll hopefully get talking later!
