A poem for Stephen

Our good friend Stephen is getting married on Saturday! (Photo above from Glastonbury Festival 2002 – Steve on the left with his best man, Mark.)

We go back a long way
So I wanted to say
On your wedding day,
I’m glad you found Kate
On that Tinder date
When it wasn’t too late,
And in love you fell
So we hear the wedding bell
And I promise not to tell
Of the things that I know
That happened long ago
When on Saturday nights we’d go
To the Dutchman or Half Moon
Maybe sing a karaoke tune
Oh, those days were gone too soon!
They may have been a lot of fun
But those younger days are done
And you have found your special someone
So let’s raise a glass to no more strife
And “Cheers” to a fabulous life,
With the beautiful Kate, by your side, as your wife.

Fourteen years of blogging – why do I do it?
April 7, 2018
Happy Birthday When I Grow Up blog! Yes, if you can be bothered, you can click on the ‘Archives’ button over there on the right and see my first feeble offerings beginning on the 7th April 2004. I don’t know anyone who’s been blogging that long! We didn’t even own a digital camera then, so none of the posts have photos to go with them for a while! Many people talk about needing a creative outlet as their reason why they started a blog. Well fourteen years ago I had recently done my A-level Art and was on my second year of a part-time degree in Creative Writing with a novel about to be published; so I can’t really site that as my reason. My kids were eight and five, but ‘Mummy blogging’ wasn’t yet a thing, let alone a thing that occurred to me to want to do, so talking about parenting wasn’t my impetus either. At the end of the day, I suppose it all boils down to the simple love of writing…..
