There’s a free holiday for 2 to the first correct entrant

The last time I said those three throw-away words ‘Happy New Year ‘, we were at The Clarkes eating tapas ,drinking Long Island Iced Teas and playing Rapidough .Little did I know that eleven months and twenty-one days later ,my world would be blown apart.Now I just can’t bring myself them to say them . Why ? Maybe its because they are too glib, I’m too scared or i just don’t trust them .

All I do know is that the pain ,sadness and longing for Rosie just goes on and on and on . I think my life has has reached a ‘new-normal’ .So i’ll continue to distract myself and keep Rosie’s memory alive by tippy typing away on this strange little blog ….

And as Bjork’s twin-sister would say ” Ssssh , it’s oh so quiet and it’s even stiller than last week “.

So in the stillness of our house I have composed a little ‘New Years Day Song-lyric Quiz’ for you to guess where Jacob, Florence ,John and I spent new Years Eve


Looking at the world through the sunset in your eyes
Travelling the train through clear Moroccan skies
Ducks and pigs and chickens call
Animal carpet wall to wall
American ladies five-foot tall in blue


When it’s Spring again I’ll bring again
Tulips from ********
With a heart that’s true I’ll give to you
Tulips from *******
I can’t wait until the day you fill
These eager arms of mine
Like the windmill keeps on turning
That’s how my heart keeps on yearning
For the day I know we can
Share these tulips from *********

John and I ( tucked up in bed )

I remember way back then when everything was true and when
We would have such a very good time such a fine time
Such a happy time
And I remember how we’d play simply waste the day away
Then we’d say nothing would come between us two dreamers
