Daisies collage

Daisies collage

Holy Schmolie! More snow! The daisies can't be too far away tho.
So up way too early for a civilised world to shovel that dandruff from the gods...then shot outta there like a blast from last nites gas.
Whew...made it to work. Realised snow
was nothing compared to the job ahead...some days you just jump in...and hope you are an heck of a swimmer.
Back home. Suddenly hit unexpectedly...Kitty not here to snuggle up to. Funny how these hairy little guys dig out a big place in our hearts. But...there is one cat I have to say brings out the smile every time. This BAD guy does it every time. I mean serious cat here and lives in Sweden no less. Take a look at Svanspervot who in this shot is residing over the flickr Union of FEZ-HEADS here. Well, one can only keep up such an image so long...even the big boys need a rest..here...but notice that paw. Is that...is he...even slumbering, giving me the er...sign?!!! Love the guy and thanx Steffe for introducing us to the true Yetti!
So...wherever you are, think Spring. Pick a Daisy. And remember, Svanspervot is very adept at tracking yer arse.

We've had so much snow. More snow than I've seen for years. The school I was supposed to be at today was closed. And I had to cancel tomorrow's visit to Ipswich due to the bad weather. Apparently the temperature's going to be 5 below zero tomorrow.
I think it's the first time I've had to cancel school visits. I hate doing it.

And today was World Book Day.

So what did you read?

Roger...you are back!!! Well, tell me all!!! What did you love...what did you hate?
Thought I'd go nutty if we had more snow...and we had a foot more...but was different...brilliant large flakes drifting down...serene...starkly beautiful landscapes about...mesmerized me and caught me completely offguard! But I want to hear about you and your trip!!!
Will tell you I walked that strip...Rome I found lacking
commercial smacking
me in the face...
but Florence warmed me...odd flock there
international types, well travelled...welcoming place.
but do tell!!!

The venicians think the romans very loud, so said the professor of the art school we met. Did you find that?
We watched the Day After Tomorrow on DVD borrowed from the library last night. What a daft film but lots of snow and ice- made the weather at the moment seemed positively springlike! Lots of daffs and spring bulbs poking through. It won't be long Syl. soon be Spring!

I love Italy. We had a lovely time in Tuscany a few years back, and in Umbria last year.

Not so keen on Rome. My thoughts on the Vatican can be seen in my latest poem.
The food wasn't that brilliant. We found a couple of good Pizzeria's but the "good" restaurants we tried were very patchy.

We saw all the sights, tho'
The Pantheon was fantastic. And the Roman Ruins everywhere - gave pause for thought.

Also came across an Escher exhibition. Very nice - one of my favourite artists.

Weather back to normal. Spring is coming.
I had to cancel two school gigs - and one school was closed. So that was a peculiar World Book Day week and no mistake.

Aha...Escher. A treat...I think my favorites by him were/are Bond of Union and Stairs(?)...never did see his work when in Belgium or The Netherlands.
A strange name that, Roger...World Book Day Week...why not world book week?! At least with the cancellations you hopefully had a chance to rest from vacation(well, I always need to!) and write more poems. It's been terribly busy here but will get Gee Whiz to you soon I promise.
Take care, you.

Well - it's officially World Book Day. But every school in the UK wants a poet or writer or illustrator on that day. Then when they can't find one - because they're all booked up - they try for the next day or the day before. So in the end it's a whole week.

Looking forward to Gee Whiz.

So, what's up for now, Roger?...I know you have projects? Did yer music work out or still smoothing it out?

Ah, Michael...every time I think Spring, it snows again...and more due this Friday. Tried to get a pic of yesterdays snow but the wind was whipping up so it was just a big white smear. How is the conservatory coming? Sounds like lots of painting here and there for a nicer view...patience. It isn't easy, huh?

Bricks looking a bit forlorn here, but hopefully the rest will turn up like they said on the 1st April (ha ha!) for the finish of the windows, door, roof etc. those handy things a conservatory/workshop needs! Also will get the wiring sorted too so the electrician can come after and put in some power points and lights. Hazel also wants some quarry tiles for the floor. she found some for 35p each which is a lot cheaper than £1 each down the road. She keeps going out to measure it to see if the rain has shrunk it some more!
