It’s Official

I am going to London! Hubby and I have asked for the time off work and started planning our trip for the second week of August. We are ecstatic!

We got our passports a few years back when we planned a ski trip to Canada, but due to hubby’s hectic work schedule back then at his old job, we were forced to cancel it.

I have dreamed of travelling to England since I was a wee child. It grew especially once I fell in love with English Literature from previctorian era in college. It’s my dream to love there on a permanent basis, but I do not know how probable that actually is.

I’ve received tips from some fellow Twitter peeps, and we have a game plan now. More to come on this awesome development as it unfolds.

Comment Questions
1. Where have you always wanted to travel there?
2. Anything that’s a must see in London?
3. Do you think a day trip to Cardiff just for the Doctor Who museum is worth it?


Kitty Cat’tastic!

While the blogging 101 task nine required us to get inspired by a comment we wrote on a post, I was struck with the inspiration to write a silly poem. It was a bit of mixed inspirational journey between two comments I left on different posts. The idea to write a poem came from this whimsical poem. The idea to make it about the bundle of fur keeping my toes warm came from this silly list.

She snuggles on my toes

a peaceful spirit who likes to cuddle

Nudges my hand with her nose

and loves to laze in the sun puddle.

She’s a lover of the outside,

Master of seek and hide.

She’ll roll over on command

and a treat she will demand.

For loneliness she’s a remedy

my sweet cat, Melody.

Nakesake from Doctor Who

She’s not a fan of TV

She wouldn’t like it if she knew

But she would forgive me.

Keeper of my secrets

Warmer of the blankets.

There’s no other possibility

It has to be my Melody.

It’s not the best poem I’ve ever written, but it’s not the worst either. She’s also crawling on my keys as I try to finish this post. She is a constant source of inspiration to me. I have written about her many times in my manuscripts, and I talk about her at work. My husband is jealous that I am closer to her. She likes to sit between me and the laptop when I try to blog. It’s too adorable to force her out, so I just try to make due with her there because I love her. Hope you enjoyed this post.
