On the Horror Channel at Easter. I am looking to get re-acquainted with the original cybermen, Ograns, The Wirren, The Thals, The Kaleds, The Green Death, The Sontaruns, to name but a few. And as for companions- Jo Grant, Sarah Jane Smith, Tegan, Nissa, Adric. Ace who loved her Nitro Nine and attacking Daleks with a baseball bat and called the Doctor ‘Professor’

The stuff of Nightmares
Blink- Don’t Blink!
Black and White always conjures up the feelings from a childhood watching Hammer House of Horror, The Twilight Zone (the original) The ordinary becomes extra ordinary, Tales of the Unexpected (in colour but the music….. scary) I love a good scary story, I’ve written a few in my time. I’ve followed in my mothers and grandmothers footsteps telling tales that make you wonder just what was that sound you heard in the middle of the night…….. may be you had better get up and see……………….. but remember Don’t Blink!

High Noon (about 11 ish really but High Noon sounds better!)

“Sniff, sniff, hiss. This is my territory.” says the cat
“Hello I’ve just come to visit Aunty” replies the dog
“Hiss, hiss, growl” responds the cat as he raises his paw.
Ding. Ding. End of Round 1
Referee (me) intervenes and removes cat to the safety of garden fence and is sent home. Dog placed on lead.
Continue to talk to neighbour (owner of dog) then the cat re-appears looking to start round 2
Dog exits stage left
Cat sits down and begins the important business of a quick wash of face.
“That told him!” says the cat as he leaps up onto the fence to go home.

I took this a few years ago around this time of year. Somehow a similar picture taken during the wind and rain of today just wouldn’t be the same.
I like snow, but not for long or when I have to struggle through it to get to and from work.
I am prepared for snow this year, new snow shovel, de-icer and e-zee melt salt for my path. So we get lots of rain, and strong winds. I am lucky, I don’t live in an area that floods, however on my short- ish journey into work (less when the schools are on holiday) I have often passed by flooded fields and riverbanks.
Perhaps I should stock up on sunscreen – who knows maybe we will have a nice warm Summer this year.
Still with this crazy weather who knows what birds I may see when I next go out bird watching.

Do Not Read when in the bath – IT
Do Not Read when on an aeroplane – The Langoliers
Do Not Read when you have the flu – The Stand
Do Not Read when looking for a puppy – Cujo
The list goes on…. and on
At 23.08 on the 12th February 2014 I found my peace.
It’s a personal thing Peace, to me at that moment I found my peace.
I have been in many peaceful places throughout my life, beautiful countryside, magnificent buildings, simple pleasures of watching a cat asleep in the warm sun, the list goes on.
Time slows when you find your peace.
