Out There!

Save your life
Including files
Where you can't
Hold them 

Keep them safe
Locked away
Within a cloud
Out there

Let them all
Float about
So very  safe
In cyberspace!

Indentured Labourer

From a far off land she came
Rolling across rough seas
With promises of 
A better life
In the West Indies

Days and nights meld into one
The routine just the same
No one cares
About her life
As she cuts the cane

Now the rains are fast in coming
Falling now until December
And all the 
Time she toils
She refuses to remember

It's my daughter's birthday today!  

Last Week.

First passport photograph  - aged two years!

It was my son's birthday last week.

Taken on his Wedding Day December 2010

Aged two years

I am blessed to have two wonderful children. They are a joy.

Eight years apart and born in  the same week.  Wimbledon was a no-no for me the week of their births as I was somewhat preoccupied!  

Birthday parties which of course had to be separate, were a challenge!   He  didn't want the clowns and the little children but she wanted to roller blade and barbecue  with the big boys!!  Happy days!
