Guildford Station


Guildford Station


Among the click of ticket machines

The convenience of M&S

Smith’s papers, magazines

Costa’s baristas

Dealing with a queue

Of thirsty commuters


I found this gem

A disused water fountain 1887

Necessary at the time

No Costa’s

No convenience store

No bottled water

Wi-fi really!!

Just read an article from daily post, re getting your thoughts down anywhere using mobile phone/tablet for example , which I found very interesting. 

I very often frequent Waterstones, I love books and they now have an excellent coffee shop. However, this is my third visit and the wifi is non existent – well it struggles endlessly!  Hence using the 4g on my phone. 

Sorry daily post that my first ‘phone post’is a moan. Now off to the library where the wifi never lets me down.

Lazy Poet’s Thursday Haiku


Beauty centre stage

Coral red clings to green shafts

The gladioli

The village is sleeping

The earth is grumbling

Walls are cracking

Bricks are falling

Sirens are wailing

People are digging

The silent are screaming

The Pope is praying

The watchers are weeping

Cute Colourful Creations


Day two

of wanderings round Amsterdam

Spotted a book market

Language strange

Yet – Classics, Art, History

Message the same

Colourful hand crafted


Gilly nowhere in sight

Yet here, in the centre of this city

Her creations

Or seemed to be

Family Things

IMG_0289.JPGBehold the Bike

Impressively hung

Kindle the memory

Elevated with love


I have called this ‘Family Things’ as there are many things we do together and never record – small things that make us laugh – or cry – usually the former.

The bike was purchased with love as a gift from granddaughter to daughter. Attaching it onto the freshly painted patio wall, was a joint effort of love by father and daughter.

My loving gesture – I made the tea!!

Green Still


Victoria park

No body, no dog, no wind

Yet – buttercup tea
