Poems and Wrestling with a King sized Quilt

Well once again it’s been a while since I popped over but getting around on one leg takes its toll. I have however been very busy writing poems for my MA Poetry portfolio which is due near the end of May. We won’t talk about the essay that has to go with it. The poems are of mixed variety, from dark to light and fun. I’ve scraped the barrel and resurrected some old stuff and taken them to the next level – that began with giving them a good cull.

My poetry tutor pointed me and my fellow students to the direction of Roy Marshall’s blog and what he has to say about drafting a poem. Excellent information, why not take a look for yourself. You can find it here. https://roymarshall.wordpress.com/2015/04/18/drafting/

On a different front, have you ever tried changing a king sized bed on one leg? Well today I did exactly that and apart from a small amount of help to fit the corners of the sheet in the far side I managed quite well. That includes wrestling with the quilt and cover, hard enough when fully able but I wasn’t going to be beaten. It would have made for a great video as when not hopping I was rolling around on the bed to get to all areas.

Three more days for my appointment at the hospital fracture clinic and I’m hoping the consultant will give me the okay to start back on two legs fully weight bearing.  I’ll know a lot more after the visit. I’m missing uni with all my creative peers and getting out and about with my friends at home. I’m even missing housework!

    Excellent article thanks, Tricia. And quite the achievement bed-wise 🙂

    Thank you Ryan. Totally exhausted now as I also cooked dinner with hubbies help and prepared a lasagne to cook tomorrow as well as managing to wash my hair (again with hubbie’s help) Oh and I played the piano for at least 30 minutes.
