Just doodling

I'm putting together my first collection of poetry.  Called 'Just doodling.'  To see a list of poems call back here in a day or two.  There is a dedication to my three children, called 'Being your mum.'  Also Scratchcard Annie and Rich is a Feeling are in there.

Just sent a short story to Take a Break, entitled 'Seeds of Friendship.'  A story about a man who's lost his wife, and an interfering neighbour tries to get him to join in her committee groups, and trips.  It's only when the nagging wife's husband passes a cup of tea over the fence, and brings a more subtle approach, that the widower realises that he was missing a friendship.  They plant seeds together, and nosey parker gets on with what she does best.  Organizing everything and everybody.  Turns out she makes scones and biscuits for her hubby and Walter, so all ends up well.

Scratchcard Annie.

I was pleased to hear that my poem 'Scratchcard Annie' will be in this issue of Quantum Leap poetry magazine.  The poem was an idea from a real character who is addicted to scratchcards.  She goes like clockwork every day.
