I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky...


This is a requested pic for someone no longer with us. (He didn't ask for it - someone alive asked for it. jus sayin) I've pasted in the accompanying poem. I love this poem but it does make me well up a bit. 
The poem is called Sea Fever and is by John Masefield; the pic is by me and is called '...the lonely sea and the sky...'
Sea Fever by John Masefield
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

Dog loves half-price rom com sooooo much, he sticks its cover to the side of his vintage car...


Oh, dear - more Photoshop Procrastination - this time, the book cover is so small in the overall picture it doesn't really show up and do its job - even so, I like the idea of my book cover being on the side of a vintage car. My ambition used to be to see my book on a big poster on a railway station, but I'm veering towards the vintage car thing now...

Stephanie Lawry has an unsuitable fiance, claustrophobia, and a disquieting rash...


Jack Redmond tries hard to be a good father to his children despite his ex-wife's attitude problem, and his mistakenly-gained drunken-perv reputation.



Add in Steph's bolshie parents, Jack's too-bright children, an old lover, a couple of rescued dogs, and a manky polar bear, and it's no wonder the games people play get out of hand.



Will Steph learn the rules of the relationship game in time to win Jack, or are the stakes
too high?

Jeff-Dog and his 100% combed cotton towel...

Jeff-Dog liked going out in the rain - and he liked wearing his blue 100% combed cotton towel when he came back in... Any other colour would get chucked off and buried in his basket.
